Our strategy has NOT been to escalate the pressure on Russia, but to maintain the pressure on Russia
NATO has maybe a 30-to-1 advantage when comparing size of military industrial complex and GDP
a 30-to-1 leverage, that's WHY the west is so keen on "being the arsenal of democracy", cuz it gives "the most bang for the buck"  literally, as well as figuratively!!
sweet Aryan Jesus, everything's about money with freakin capitalists

the other side of this maximizing strategy, is "risk minimization"
it was only a year from when the archduke was assinated to Germany lauching the first chlorine gas attack at Ypres
what if Austria DIDN'T march it's troops into serbia, but instead supported croatia in a civil war between serbia and croatia

the maximize/minimize strategy is considered "optimal" according to "The Theory of Games and Economic Behavior" by J.V. Neuman

contrast that with the strategic direction of l'il mini Pootin
where he has achieved through his own actions "the worst case scenario"

every step he has taken has been wrong
he's not gonna get ANY of the rewards he craves
when his punishment comes, it will be severe

This quote out from Andrew Neil today, veteran news anchor:

"Before Russia invaded Ukraine, India imported 1% of its oil from Russia. Now itís 40%, 2nd largest buyer of Russian crude at 1.64m barrels/day, at below world prices. India refines this crude. What it doesnít use itself it exports to Europe and US as Indian product. Russia thus evades sanctions."

So perhaps the sanctions bit quite as full on as thought in practice. Kind of wondered why pump prices got back down and this may answer it. Potentially Russia may be able to go on a while before it all falls apart. How long may be somewhat uncertain. I would hope not long but it may be difficult to tell.

An orc fighter jet SU-34 and an orc helicopter Mi-8 both shot down in the Bryansk region of Russia this morning.


This is official...there are reports of more orc military aircraft crashing and burning in Russia this morning.


Panicking orc Air-defenses ?


Saboteurs ?

I was wrong as well. But the decision was logical from his point of view.Too bad this will remove Ukraine from the map, and no, it will not become fully Russian.


I disagree.  The decision was not logical.  Having tens of millions of people who are hostile to your regime is not "logical".  Further, Putin miscalculated the West.  He assumes we are weak.  We're not. 


I also disagree that this will remove Ukraine from the map.  I think if the West had not armed Ukraine, that Russia would have overtaken Ukraine.  But the hatred that's been sowed by Putin's idiocy will not subside for at least a generation.

You will think about me within a year.As said, no Ukraine will not become fully Russian.  But once the Black Sea is closed, and Moldova takes some parts they have their eyes on, Zelensky will get the option to let the remainder of the country join Poland thereby falling under NAT or face complete defeat.
I am aware I sound as whacky as Krimster here.
But if anyone gave provide a better realistic option you can put it  in.


For the Black Sea to be closed, Russia would have to take Odesa and all of Ukraine on the Black Sea east of Odesa.  They can't achieve that.

Nope, North Dakota alone produces a million barrels per day. India uses most of the oil it
imports domestically. They exported 20% more gasoline and petrolium products in 2021
than in 2022 and what little that is exported has minimal effect on the world price.
Why would you complain about the price of gas?

The UK charges £2.19/US gal in taxes in addition to a VAT of 20% on the final price
AND a Vehicle Excise Duty. You UKers intentionally screw yourselves. Every politician
would be out of office in the next election if they tried that here (in Texas).

Black Sea east of Odesa.  They can't achieve that.


Why? The Russians could intercept anything before it reached the Bosphorus Strait and they
would be well out of range of any rockets or artillary in Ukraine. The Russian Navy could even
steal the ship, take it to the port in Sochi, unload the cargo and make more money than
Moscow would ever pay them.

Did you see the recent false flag news about a drone motorboat attack of a Russian vessle
supposedly in Turkish waters? I had no idea how Drone motorboats can travel so far from
Ukraine without being jammed, shot or blown up.

Ukraine can only exit the Black Sea via The Bosphorus Strait. The other option is to goods
overland at 4 times the cost to Gdansk then on though the Baltic.

so take 25,000 guys who survived for years in a Russian prison as well as a year fighting in Ukraine and who already control 2 key Russian cities and are about to acquire nuclear weapons and who just shot down two Russian helicoptors in Rostov and one air transport
and they're headin North on the hunt for Putin (who appears to have fled)
oh, and BTW, this just reduced Russian troop count in Ukraine by more than 5% of total as a small side effect

so now, the goal is for Prigozhin to kill Putin before Putin can kill Prigozhin
let the contest BEGIN!
two men enter
only one man leaves
no matter who the loser is, Ukraine's gonna be the winner

Prigozhin's success depends on 2 factors:
1. how quickly can he kill Putin while avoiding being killed by Putin
2. how many Russians can he convince to join him on his march to killing Putin

In the next week we'll surely know the answers to these questions
notice how everyone has forgotten about Ukraine's 'offensive' now? :)
it sure would be 'bad timing' for l'il mini Putin if that offensive happened at the same time Putin had to fight Prigozhin
nothin like a two front war to shrink your forces

 Wagner is not executing a coup. It is a Special Revolutionary Operation.

Putin is rumored to be headed to Valday(his estate between Moscow and St. Petersburg) to lay low in his bunker.

 During the last year and a half of the war, the largest city captured by the Russians was Rostov....


 IF...Yevgeny Prigozhin can live long enough, will he take over for Alexander Lukashenko who is in less than perfect health???
Something about this "peace deal" between Putin and Prigozhin stinks.

Surely Putin didn't lie ? After all it's most unlike him . :rolleyes:


Surely Prigozhin didn't trust him ?


The Russian media reported that Prigozhin remains under investigation in a case concerning an armed revolt.


As of the morning of June 26th ,the criminal case regarding the organization of an armed revolt (Article 279 of the criminal code ),in which the founder of the PMC Wagner Yevgeny Prigozhin is the main figure,continues to be investigated by the investigative department of the Russian FSB.
