Much rather convince Russia to wipe out China with us.
Natural gas. The U.S. has lots and lots so why aren't we supplying Germany with what they need?
Tomorrow is a state holiday, the Day of Unity of Ukraine. Ironic that Russia is looking to 'ununify' them.
I hope China doesn't get any Ideas regarding Taiwan. I know they have a lot at stake financially if they mess with Taiwan so I hope that alone deters them?
The time to do it would be during the Olympics.
They will pick a fight with Japan, still very bitter.
I very much doubt China will go after both Taiwan and Japan while holding the Olympics in their country.
agree. Too much money at stake for them.
Well of course not. That would make me feel uncomfortable.
Biden getting ready to send Troops to Ukraine
Doesn't surprise me, I hope he doesn't though.
As part of NATO, correct?
Germany has 'betrayed' Ukraine by banning weapon exports and supporting the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline with Russia, Kiev mayor Vitali Klitschko declares
Vitali Klitschko is an ex-world heavyweight boxing champion and Mayor of Kiev
He has railed against Germany for its 'failure to provide assistance' to Ukraine
It comes as fears of a potential Russian invasion of Ukraine reach boiling point
NATO declared today it would beef up reinforcements in eastern Europe
Russia meanwhile has accused NATO and the West of 'escalating tensions'
Klitschko accused German authorities of 'betrayal' and allowing 'Putin sympathisers' to take control
Trump says the Ukraine-Russia crisis never would've occurred under him, but he withheld military aid from Kyiv and experts say he emboldened Putin
Germany wants natural gas!
This is happening because there is weakness in the White House and everyone knows it.
Like A Game Of 'Risk' - NATO Countries Mobilize As Biden Mulls Sending Troops To Ukraine.
The West fears Russia is about to attack Ukraine. But that's not the way Russians are seeing it on TV
"If you're watching state TV in Moscow, you're seeing video of troops and tanks, barbed wire and snipers taking aim, but it's not Russia's forces that are poised for attack -- it's NATO's.
Welcome to Russia's mirror-image depiction of the showdown over Ukraine. In the country's alternate media landscape, NATO forces are carrying out a plan that's been in the works for years: Encircle Russia, topple President Vladimir Putin and seize control of Russia's energy resources.
In Moscow's view, repeated in nearly every newscast and talk show, Ukraine is a failed state entirely controlled by the "puppet master" -- the United States. Europe is a weak and divided collection of lap dogs taking orders from Washington. Even the US, as frighteningly threatening as it is, is weak and divided too, torn apart by political division and racial unrest."
"In a striking piece of mirror-image propaganda, Russian TV has taken to re-broadcasting, with translation, comments by Fox News pundit Tucker Carlson, whose anti-NATO and anti-US President Joe Biden screeds neatly align with the Kremlin's line. "He [Carlson] ought to be on your show!" one guest on a Russian talk show told the anchor.
The state media blitz seems to be having an effect. A December poll by the non-governmental polling and sociological research organization the Levada-Center, showed that half of respondents blame the US and NATO for tensions, while only 3% to 4% blame Russia."
