gzt:  No need for the name calling it's just a different topic that deserves its own discussion.

 

 

Agreed.

 

I thought that we were discussing an ailing psychopath with the world's largest nuclear arsenal, who may plunge us into a nuclear winter at his depraved whim, on his way out.  πŸ™

The topic is geopolitics and whether any state has the complete freedom to choose allegiances right? The Idea that Ukraine could choose to have rival military set up ballistic missiles 5 minutes flight from Moscow is why we have this mess. Realpolitik dictates that this is definitely not the case as The US knows all too well considering the Munro doctrine.

 

 

The topic is a brute forcing himself on a weaker victim. Russia is a rapist and Ukraine is struggling to survive. You want to argue bullshit intellectual games while people are being tortured and murdered.

We are. But we must also talk about the depraved warmongers who's skin in the fight is an ever increasing military stock portfolio willing to push him there.

The Times of London - Soviet-era snoopers return to ensure Russians stay loyal to Putin

 

25 April

 


Soviet-style “political commissars” are to be introduced in Russian government departments and state companies as the Kremlin seeks to stamp out dissent and ensure loyalty to President Putin, according to sources in Moscow.

 

Deputy heads of federal ministries, agencies and state companies will send staff “signals” about the Kremlin’s political line and report back on their “emotional climate and mood”.

 

The measures will be co-ordinated by the internal politics division at the Kremlin, where the new monitors are referred to as “politruki”, a term used in the early Soviet era for commissars in the Red Army whose task was to ensure soldiers obeyed communist doctrine.

 

The idea was first broached last year but gained new impetus after the invasion of Ukraine ...

Wow, look at this. China slams ‘colonialist’ Australia over criticism of Solomon Islands security deal | news.com.au — Australia’s leading news site . Australia is threatening to invade the Solomon Islands. All good though aye.

The atrocities are alleged. Why even add that to your comment? Just the invasion would be perfectly accurate and worthy of discussion. But trust me when I say that the video evidence is piling up at the feet of the paramilitary Azov battalion who are being funded and trained just like Al-Qaeda were. The US will fight this proxy war to the last Ukrainian.

gzt: Yeah I think Solomons is a different topic entirely. Create a new topic if you want to go into it. It's all about relationships and balance.
The topic is geopolitics and whether any state has the complete freedom to choose allegiances right? The Idea that Ukraine could choose to have rival military set up ballistic missiles 5 minutes flight from Moscow is why we have this mess.

NATO is not in the business of stationing ICBMs in member countries as far as I'm aware. There are numerous former eastern bloc countries became members of NATO.. None have missiles stationed as far as I know. Do you know something different?

Again, this has nothing to do with this topic. You can create another one to discuss China and the Solomon Islands.

“The Transneft-Druzhba Oil Depot, located in the city of Bryansk around 70 miles from the Ukrainian border, caught fire at 2am local time before a second fire broke out at a nearby military facility around 15 minutes later, Russian state media said this morning.”

 

70 miles from Ukraine Boarder, good range.

 

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-10749921/amp/Giant-inferno-Russian-oil-storage-amid-suspicion-strike-Ukraine.html

 

Edit: “Bryansk is a logistical hub for Russian forces battling Ukraine in Donbas, while the Druzhba pipeline is one of the main routes for Russian oil to reach Europe. ”

 

Don’t know what happens if European gas lines get interrupted from Ukraine counter attacks.

Without doubt, Putin is a terrible despot who should be shunned by the world. But in saying that, what do you guys think of the unashamed hypocrisy on show now with the [China's] Solomon Island issue? https://www.theguardian.com/world/2022/apr/23/us-warns-solomon-islands-against-china-military-base-as-australian-mps-trade-blame. This is far from a border that could be a threat. Nato in UA would mean a 5 minute missile flight time to Moscow. I just find it hard to fathom the lies and Hypocrisy coming from the West. Here is a good watch that I haven't seen anyone thoroughly debunk any points from. https://youtu.be/pKcmNGvaDUs



Washington Examiner: YouTube flags Oliver Stone's Ukraine 2016 documentary

It was revealed Wednesday that YouTube had placed a warning on the 2016 documentary Ukraine on Fire by executive producer Oliver Stone....

On YouTube, when a user clicks on the film via the production company Global Tree Pictures's channel, the screen goes black and displays an inappropriate content warning. Viewers can still watch it, however, by clicking that they wish to proceed.

...YouTube's Policy Communications Manager Ivy Choi told the Washington Examiner that the documentary's violent content warranted the warning. The video had been up for 10 months before the platform censored it.

"We removed this video for violating our violent or graphic content policy, which prohibits content containing footage of corpses with massive injuries, such as severed limbs β€” for example, videos of beheadings," Choi explained. There are smaller channels that have re-uploaded the documentary, though Choi said YouTube will take their videos down.

"While we do allow content with educational, documentary, scientific, or artistic content, for some categories, we have a higher bar, and we do not make exceptions for certain kinds of violent or graphic content," Choi added.
