Our actions are not the things escalating anything. Yet, people keep dying and Pudding keeps doing crazier and more reckless things. He will use nuclear weapons whether we do anything or not if he thinks he could win.

There is serious considerations for small nukes in Ukraine.

And the less NATO responds to these atrocities the less credible they are about anything else. They have told Putin a lot of things, yet failed to follow through with most of them.

63. I would not be suprised, given the corruption in Russia

if a good portion of their nuclear weapons don't work due to a lack of maintenance. It's expensive and it seems that stealing the money is more important to the people in charge of the military than actually buying the stuff they are supposed to.

I saw on another thread that the nuclear capabilities have been maintained. And maybe they have. It just shows how fucked up Russia's priorities have been, to put the doomsday option ahead of making sure you could feed your army.

But back to the point I wouldn't be surprised if they have silos full of duds.

removing fleets from the black sea, and all personnel out of Ukraine. He also stopped the invasion of Georgia when the prospect of war with NATO was directly in the way of it.

86. If he is rational, direct intervention would work

Because he would not want to die. If he was irrational, direct intervention would likely be the last resort to his doing something completely and utterly more insane such as attacking NATO (something he continues to threaten).

If we intervene now we would be risking nuclear war betting he is rational enough to avoid it. If we wait, we would be waiting until we have no other choice to likely escalate to nuclear war if he is so irrational that he will commit suicide by invading a NATO country.

Intervention seems like the better idea in both regards. But no, there is no reason to assume he is irrational regardless of how psychopathically opportunistic he clearly has been.

His actions reflect his actions from the past. He might feel more emboldened to do the things he has been trying to do for years, but he isn't less rational IMHO.

31. So, if Putin uses nuclear weapons in Ukraine

the West should just shrug and wave a finger saying "don't let it happen again!".

Then, when he uses them on a NATO country, say "Last warning!"

And when he does it again, emboldened by having no consequences for the rest, give him one more warning....

Ironic that the nation which precipitated that phrase is now the one holding up efforts to prevent another genocide.

And thats even before considering just what the largest value trade good Germany got from the USSR was... OIL! Same thing that's leading them to stymie further attempts at sanctions now.

For President Bident to send troops into Ukraine without the blessing of NATO would be wrong. There is a big difference between the US sending troops to Iraq and sending troops to Ukraine. We aren't going head to head with Russian troops in Iraq, but we would be going head to head with Russian troops in Ukraine.

NATO's involvement in Iraq started after the formation of a interim government, to help train their new security forces.

The UN and NATO are entirely separate entities.

It might also be the use of any nuclear arms by Russia.

Until then, we are supplying Ukraine with the weapons it needs to defend itself, which it is doing quite well, actually, while exposing the incompetence of the Russian military for all to see.

Unfortunately, that defense is costing Ukraine thousands upon thousands of its citizen's lives. NATO is not, however, going to risk a nuclear war over that. Nor should it, in my opinion.

Ukraine is not a NATO member state. If it were, Putin would not have attacked it, either.

That is why NATO exists. It is a boundary that cannot be crossed without enormous risk.

Do I think that is the best possible situation? Not necessarily, but it is the situation that exists. I cannot change that.

You and I share something in common. I was also a Russian linguist in the USAFSS. I was stationed in Turkey, on the Black Sea coast in 1967-8.

My troops are torturing and raping women and children, I am stealing women and children, I am tying men up and then shooting them. I am doing anything I want to the people but NATO is so afraid I will use nuclear weapons that I will think NATO doesn't care about 43.1 million people I definitely won't care about 1.3 million people.

80. ...

I wanna know where people's limits are. Most people do not want any direct conflict with Russia for very good and obvious reasons, but I am curious as to what point that could change -or has changed.

83. I think no president has done what I would do. (Probably good I'm not president)

As I said, I began enlisting in the US Army as soon as Ukraine invaded in 2014 February. I was hoping we would get involved. Unfortunately we didn't. I think Biden should do more, just as I thought Obama should have done more. Although I understand why they didn't.

Nuclear annihilation is a very good reason to tread very carefully, and that is what he is doing. Although just like the rest of us, he also has a line which is increasingly being clear.

I will say that Biden was in a far more difficult position thoroughly because of Trump. Trump emboldened Putin and I really don't think he would have invaded if not for Trump.

84. Thanks for your honest reply! I fully support President Biden leadership during

this war! So far, I think he is doing all the right things and will continue to do so.

85. Welcome!

I have been happy to see his increasing support for Ukraine with more and bigger weapons and don't expect him to back down to psycho bully Putin's demented and delusional threats.
