    From Zerohedge article

    In the aftermath of the major attack on Russian infrastructure, there's growing speculation that President Vladimir Putin could be poised to declare full war on Ukraine, escalating far past the currently dubbed "special operation". Some prominent Russian politicians are loudly calling for an equal response to Ukraine's own "declaration of war" in the attack, according to state media sources:

    “The terrorist attack on the Crimean Bridge is no longer just a challenge, but a declaration of war without rules,” said Russia’s State Duma on October 8 after an explosion rocked the Kerch Strait crossing earlier this morning.

    Speaking to RIA Novosti, Deputy Oleg Morozov said that the explosion was “a blatant terrorist war is being waged against us.”

    ...if there is no "adequate" response, such acts of aggression would be more likely to occur. “If we keep silent in response and do not give an adequate response, such terrorist attacks will multiply,” he said.

    The support structures are really the key parts of the bridge. The metal spans are much easier to replace.

    I am a concerned about the heat damage to the rail bridge. It has likely shaved off a lot of the life of the structure and
    they will need to rebuild in the near term.

    Prigozhin  described Surovikin as "true hero  and patriot" he recalled 1993 when he was protesting and he was in tank defending parliament.

    You do realize that Ukie's are used to that weather, so it will not provide russia the same defense as in past times.

    NATO mercs aren't. Ukraine still has conscripts and a modest quantity of motivated volunteers but I wouldn't be surprised if all sorts of Turkish ultra-nationalists, Kosovo Albanian volunteers, Uighur & Syrian Islamists, random South Americans, Poles/Balts/Romanian Russophobes, French and German advisers, and international desperadoes wishing to make $2000 a day fill in more and more of the gaps.

    Secondly it's about mobility mostly, not who's used to what. Russian vehicles are very well adapted to harsh winters, and also to the rasputitsa that precedes and succeeds it. The HMMWVs, M113s and such the Ukrainian side is increasingly using I'm less sure about.

    The Ukrainian army isn't made up mostly of foreign troops, the weather is not a big factor in this event

    Why does Russia not assassinate the heads of the Ukrainian regime? is he so powerless?

    Russia is on its way to losing this war if it does not act decisively. It is not going to be able to sustain its annexations forever as Ukraine continues to receive Western support. Ukraine will continue to receive support and material support and some in this forum seem to live in Jupiter.
    Russia must organize and launch a counter offensive and end the regime.

    It looks like that is what's in the planning stage right now. But i think they need to get on with it sooner than later.

    Yes Russia could kill any of these leaders in a strike. But so far they are too diplomatic for that. Russia is a lawmaxxed bureaucratic state. Hopefully though this new hardass general will have some freedom to do what he wants.

    Zelensky says what his Banderite handlers (captors) tell him to say. If he refuses, the SBU will kill him, and blame the Russians for his demise (you just know the Western elites and their media sock puppets will happily repeat the lies). He also takes instructions from his NATO handlers as his servile obedience results in cash and support, but his main priority is to stay alive. He says many stupid things to please those with a gun to his head, much to the consternation of the US & Eurotrash who are forced to ignore & deflect, which naturally weakens their narratives in the eyes of the global audience.

    As much as he annoys me, I think that White-Powder Zellie is partly a victim of this entire debacle. Whether that will save his bacon in the end is however doubtful. When Ukropisstain finally loses and collapses into the dust, his life expectancy will drop to zero. Twisted Evil

    owais.usmani wrote:They could have decapitated Kiev on February 24, the war should have been over on February 25.

    But instead, they chose to be a laughing stock for the entire world through this SMO shit.

    When the dust settles and Liberated Russia (ex-Ukraine) is finally free, no-one will gve a flying fck about recent play-ground antics by Ukro-apes.  Do you think people in the UK agonised over Dunkirk as Berlin fell?

    The SMO was necessary to win over the geopolitical support of China, India and the rest of the global South.  Wars have multiple vectors - military, political, economic, financial, ideological, cultural, social.  Russia can win the war militarily but she loses the big struggle if the West is able to successfully label Russia as an agressor and marshall (cajole & intimidate) global sanctions such that her economy collapses, she becomes a global pariah, and with an end result that the US is able to consolidate its hegemonic grasp on global affairs.  The SMO will be upgraded, when, and only when, conditions are right and Russia is ready. Only the Kremlin and the General Staff knows when that will be, and they aren't telling...

    Russia knew from the outset that this war was going to be a proxy war with US/EU/NATO and would change the global geopolitical landscape, one way or the other.  Russia either wins and becomes a free nation and a lynch pin of a new multi-polar global order, or the globalists of the Atlanticist order succeed in neutering their biggest opponent to the expansion of their uni-polar hegemony project and extend their filthy covetous grasp over more of the planets surface.

    As Gonzalo Lira says so often:  KNOW WHATS GOING ON

    FFS...  people in this forum just don't seem to get it thru their heads that Russia is fighting with a plan, and they are NOT TELEGRAPHING THEIR STRATEGIES.  Western echo chambers fill the vacuum with feckless empty-headed nonsense, and those who lack capacity for critical thinking swallow the jiggling lure - hook, line and sinker.

    Don't buy the BS the West is selling.
    Don't behave like children seeking instant gratification.
    Have some faith that the Kremlin and the General Staff know more than you.
    Settle down and prepare for a protracted conflict.
    Be patient.  Big things take time. The West has been busy since 1991 on their Banderastan Project. They won't give up without a fight, and the Kremlin knew this well before troops crossed the border into the Desolation of Bandera.

    Yeah, I was thinking about that. It was well and truly heat-soaked. That span will probably be replaced post-war, but until then, let the reinforcements roll.

    Meh...  Anti-semitism is a trick, the Jews use it all the time to neutralise opposition to their racial/tribalist agenda.  Criticism of Zionists and Jewish malfeasance in general is not criticising religion.  

    BTW commenting on the degree of Jewish over-representation in the corridors of power is hardly "antisemitism".  Consider the following:

    If these people where all Chinese instead of Jewish, would it be politically unacceptable to point our their ethnicity/dual nationality? Razz

    Nah, "anti-semitism" is a con job, and its a rube who falls for it and allows the faux outrage to silence them.

    And its back up and running.  All Ukraine gets a new stamp, but really what changes?  Its sort of like Chancellorsville or JEB Stuart's raid on Washington.  Great for propaganda, flashy victories, but Grant is cutting the CSA in half at Vicksburg and McClelan has raised a massive army that when put into battle in 1863 and 1864-65 would crack the Rebel army so utterly meaningless.  Remember, 300,000 have not been called up for nothing, the general responsible for regaining Syria was not named the head of the operation for nothing, and Nazelensky isn't calling for nuclear first strikes and doing terrorist attacks because he is winning.

    *correction, I was getting Stuart's 1862 raid into Pennsylvania confused with Jubal Early's 1864 attack on Washington.  No matter, they were flashy and even devastating attacks but much like Ukraine's sinking of Moskva and attack on the bridge they achieved nothing and had zero impact on the outcome of the war.
