Neither side - NATO or Russia - can stop now and not suffer extreme losses of power on the world stage. So we must fight on.

I believe I remember Joe Biden calling Saudi Arabia a pariah when he was trying to get elected..

    Starts at 1:30. Putin saying that up until this time, they ave not been fighting "a war" in Ukraine...

    except it is a limited mobilization (perhaps recorded before the news).
    i have subsequently heard it is "limited" to current active reserves and ex-military (men that served before) and not raw recruits.
    and of course i don't know that for sure either

    as i said, hope putin takes the gloves off and steamrolls the ukies to end this. we've no business in that $hithole country
    With those 300,000 new draftees, where will the Russians get the rifles? Maybe they will need to get the old M91s out of storage or they can use the old tried-and-true tactics of wave attacks where the second wave pick the rifles off the dead on the first wave.

    Russia is under an attack by the West, which wants the country to be broken up into warring pieces, President Vladimir Putin has claimed.
    “The Western goal is to weaken, disunite and ultimately destroy our nation. They are saying directly that they managed to break up the Soviet Union in 1991, and now it is time for Russia itself to be split into many regions that would be at each other’s throats,” the Russian leader stated in a televised address on Wednesday.
    They are saying that. If you read these think tanks, the places from whence creatures like Mike Pompeo and Antony Blinken emerge, they just say openly that Russia has ethnic divides and their goal is to push those lines and cause a fracture.

    Russia is an empire, so they have these Moslems and Asians and even white people speaking different languages. The country would be significantly less formidable if it broke apart further – especially given that these new states would fall victim to extreme Western influence.

    Putin’s accusations came as he updated the nation on Russia’s military campaign in Ukraine and explained his decision to mobilize army reserves. He insisted that the hostile Ukrainian government in Kiev was a product of Western-induced Russophobia.
    For decades [the West] has intentionally fostered hatred towards Russia, first and foremost in Ukraine, which they envisioned as a foothold against Russia. The West turned the Ukrainian people into cannon fodder and pushed them to a war against our country,” Putin said. He stated that the ongoing conflict started in 2014, when an armed coup in Kiev toppled Ukraine’s elected government.
    The US and its allies have stated their goal as being Russia’s defeat on the battlefield, which, according to Putin, would lead to a “total negation of [Russia’s] political, economic, cultural and any other kind of sovereignty, a total pillaging of our nation.”
    He warned that Russia will use any means at its disposal to defend itself and ensure its territorial integrity, up to and including the deployment of its nuclear arsenal, if attacked with weapons of mass destruction.

    Don’t worry, we will supply them too.

    I see little difference between Russia's concerns now and our concerns back then. But for people who think that aggression is "bad when they do it but okay when we do it", I don't expect much introspection.

    I believe the quote to this picture is - 'Did Medvedev give you my message'?
    "after my election I have more flexibility."

    Medvedev replied that he would "transmit this information to Vladimir," as in Putin, the current president who was prime minister at the time.

    How much will end up missing from Ukraine?

    They've already caught politicians crossing the border with suitcases full of US dollars.
