Can't CM just send their own envoy of Ternur & Kroffe? Just get Ternur rat-arsed on rum and throw a suit on him, whilst Kroffe could dig out his very finest Furries costume. Peace ensues in all the land
Yes last night Russia stopped electricity imports to Finland. But we don't care it's just 10% of total generation what came from Russia. Gas imports are different thing 92% of our natural gas comes from Russia so let's see what happens near future.I saw in the comments that Finland has a contingency in place, as you would imagine countries do, and that only 10% of power comes from Russia. Not sure how true that is or any of the details really.
25 Billion in weapons committed by the US alone. NATO has not given a single fighter jet however, why?
Gave you a 'way to go' on the second post for hammering home your point.As the Ukranian pilots are not trained in using other types of fighter jets.
And also same as the reason for not having the no fly zone. NATO decided that supplying fighter jets would be to risky. They have supplied missile launchers and various weapons but not planes.
Think something to do with not wanting to risk it being seen as taking an active role and risking the ear escalating outside Ukraine.
Even now the missiles supplied to Ukraine can only travel a certain distance whereas planes would be able to hit anywhere in Russia easily.
someone need to give up, or this war will go on for years, and I dont think USA is ready to spend 25b every year for next 5 years or more
You don't subscribe to the idea that they are happy to make money from a proxy war?
Just saw there is a news blackout across Ukraine.
Found myself for the first time thinking about the presentation and delivery of this news report. Got me thinking about the enthusiasm and pitch, almost like a game show presenter reading the rules. I don't remember the news about war being so casual.
Let's not forget France, Germany, Spain etc. Think I heard a mention of Sweden and Finland supplies. There are shareholders around the world to impress.only US and Turkey are making money from Ukraine, and Iran with North Korea from Russia, UK is not making money they busy with tax cuts
The vogue cover zelensky was on with his wife was just atrociousIts probably down to the times we live in today, but the war at times feels incredibly commercialized.
Ive lost count of how many celebrities have flown down there for a photo op, Zelensky and wife posing for Vouge etc.
Like i said its probably mostly down to the digital age we live in today, and we would probably have seen the same things if todays tech were around for older wars but imo it feels bizarre at times.
