If CChivvis were advising FDR before WWII broke out, we would all be speaking German. His argument is beyond specious. Putin's criminal crew only responds to brute force.

British anti-tank weapons sent to defend Ukraine from RussiaBritain has sent an anti-tank missile system to Ukraine to help the country defend itself from a Russian invasion. Ben Wallace, the defence secretary, said last I'm on my way And what happens if they send military hardware here. We left the EU. Our domestic forces are weak, our government is a laughing stock, & we rely on energy from Putin. I think we should not be treading on other peoples toes and pissing super powers off. We decided to leave the EU Perhaps we should start bulldozing the Green belt in readiness to house a gazzillion fleeing Ukrainians?

Russia holds sniper drills and 'sends missiles to Ukraine border'Video shows Putin's army carrying out shooting exercises in the Rostov region bordering Ukraine on Monday, with up to 100,000 stationed on the border. We should ask Putin to be reasonable and we propose peace talks, I suggest any former Nobel prize winners for this job, or how about Gorbachev?

Conservative MP Tobias Ellwood, chair of the defence select committee tells cathynewman “Putin is trying to redraw the map of eastern Europe”. cathynewman While you redraw the map of Western Europe ? cathynewman And we have an ineffectual Foreign Secretary more concerned with her image, and jostling for position when BJ goes! Global Britain my arse!🤷‍♂️ cathynewman For the last 20 years..... Has no one been paying attention?

Russia moves troops to Belarus for joint exercises near Ukraine borderMove likely to stoke invasion fears as war games also planned near borders of Nato members Poland and Lithuania This is not a good thing...not a good thing at all. Rook to Bishop 3. I hope the people of Belarus are ready for their country to become a battlefield for Putin's hubris.

Ukraine says Russia is behind cyberattack that defaced its websites Ukraine accused Moscow of continuing to 'wage a hybrid war' and said the cyberattack was part of a plot to 'destablise the situation in Ukraine '. It should have better cyber security then Sure...I mean how could anyone not believe the US and Ukrainian neo Nazi regime eh? Nazis never lie do they? 🙃 paranoid!

The solution is simple, one of the two gas pipelines must work, that's all, there are no other solutions. Ukraine earns on the transit of gas through the territory of Ukraine, the whole problem. Is this problem worth a military conflict. Like Russia, Ukraine needs to develop the real sector of the economy, and not wait for manna from heaven.
