Another change: if you're a UKR Territorial, you may not JUST be fighting in your own backyard. They can now be sent to where they're needed most (source).

Since the "USA invading CAN" material could generate intriguing discussion on its own, it's now in its own thread here

One last one for the night: intriguing story: end of February ...
... and today
Not necessarily anything nefarious, but UKR-born (says he's no longer a citizen)/raised in Winnipeg, leaves in February to join and returns in April to play soccer again. Interesting they'd let a fighting-age male who'd signed up leave - although if he's not a citizen, those rules may not apply.

Since missile systems are now being Lend-Leased (wonder what the damage deposit is on an M777 lease 😁 ) why can't some Tomahawks be sent, on an airdrop pallet (like was used to convert a C-130 into a missile/bomb truck) preprogrammed with various targets in critical areas and delivered to somewhere in the western Ukraine (within their useable range to Mariupol) where the UAF has a transport or helicopter that can carry them high enough for a successful "launch"?


Might be also be useful oni Sevastopol, Crimea and warship targets in the Black sea

Another marker laid out ....

You mean the same way RUS declared it wouldn't encroach on UKR when UKR gave up its nukes? That kind of "agreement"?
"Ahem... Russia? Yeah that's OUR playbook, and we aren't quite sure about giving it up just yet.

Accuse a country of having WMD, then invade that country after they've clearly got rid of any they did potentially have while using words like naziism, fundamentalism, and terrorism to whip up domestic support?

Royalty check please."

Ukrainins are very forward-thinking. They understand that this is their fight. If you are a foreign fighter and don't want to be there, then don't be there. Thanks for helping in the short time you were here.

And as others smarter than me have said upthread, better to have a keener with me while letting the weiners who don't want to be around leave.

Are you talking about Iraq? The country that had invaded Kuwait, genocided the Kurds, was posturing as if it had nuclear weapons to intimidate its neighbours and wouldn't cooperate with the IAEA?

Doesn't seem all too comparable to Ukraine to me... Not to mention that this ''comparison'' is one of the main Russian propaganda talking points.

Sidenote: I found it comical when non-US Int agencies came out years later (somewhat recently) saying that THEY had ''correctly'' assessed that there were no WMDs. Like, bud... Logically speaking, you finding no evidence doesn't prove anything other than your inability to find the evidence.

If any apt comparisons can be drawn here, it seems to be between '02 Iraq and Russia, both having invaded neighbours, engaged in genocide, and inappropriate posturing with WMDs.

(I say that in good humour, post not to be construed as some sort of angry tirade ;P )
