Big deal. I caused my brother to post an 800,000 word post one time, all because of what i said.

Caused involuntarily, which is forced.

Here's the deal......

This isn't a time to rehash the Trump Presidency or to lambast Biden. I hope and wish we can simply be united in our outrage over what the actual perp, V Putin, has done and join together to help Ukraine in any way possible.

Perhaps its time for all of us to just stop.

Think I might try that.

This is Richard. Richard has strong opinions. Richard sees the bigger picture on what's going on right now. Be like Richard.

New topic: Germany is sending 1000 Javelin anti-tank missiles to Ukraine. I did not know that these are so simple to use that even a civilian (abled-body of course) can be trained in 1 hour to use this weapon. It is fire-and-forget and quite deadly.

I can't believe the courage and tenacity of the Ukraine army and civilian population holding off the red menace, and it is inspiring. I would hate to be a soviet tank crew cruising along in Ukraine with these weapons in the hands of the Ukrainians!

Here is a video on the Javelin:

A willingness to turn the page and move forward as Richard has said is more impactful than any argument anyone has every made on this forum, and I salute him.

What's refreshing is that there are times, like this, when we can all be outraged by the same thing at the same time for the same reasons.

More To Defense?

AP says it would put them a bit over 2% of GDP. Germany calls it a special fund.
Regardless of what our admin did or didn’t do, Putin did the heavy lifting on this one. He has managed to unite and reinvigorate NATO with one event.

Nuclear Alert?

Posted By Russ Carroll

Just speculation:

Maybe Putin threatened the nuclear card because he has a good deal of his armed forces clogged up ona 40-mile-long convoy stuck on a road north of Kyiv. It would take no time at all for modern jets and missiles to obliterate a good deal of his military. They are sitting ducks. Fighters have been given to Ukraine and presumably will launch from Poland. Putin may be trying to back that off so this convoy is not attacked and (easily) wiped out.

The EU has now rescinded their commitment to give Ukraine fighter jets, saying they did not want to escalate the war. More evidence of the above speculation.

Rod, you seem to put most everything through a Trump sieve. I’d actually be interested in your thoughts looking past that history.
