Putin is better off threatening Ukraine then actually invading them. Threatening them gets him some support. Actually invading them brings a lot of corpses home that would stoke unrest.
Man I hope so. Seems dire currently there. Hope we have a response to that **** Putin.

Fortress America, **** em. Europe sold their souls again when they agreed to buy their petroleum from the KGB master.
This x1000

What is the economic impact if we don’t protect Ukraine and Taiwan? It sucks for those countries for sure but why should it matter to a normal American?

Yes Taiwan is in dire situation. Authoritarianism emboldened past few years no idea why?
I think they see Biden as weak compared to crazy Trump. If you think Trump embolden Authoritarianism for China and Russia then you are a partisan Hac…..oh wait

As Merkel leaves leadership of Germany. JFC
The fear mongering never ends. JFC

The Washington Post reported on October 30 that a “buildup” of Russian troops near the Ukrainian border concerned US and European officials.[1] The report suggested that the Russian deployments are similar to those carried out on Ukraine’s border in March-April 2021. Open-source reporting does not support the assessment that Russia has moved any additional forces closer to the Ukrainian border or that a Russian offensive against Ukraine is imminent, however. The Ukrainian Ministry of Defense stated on November 1 it has not observed any transfers of Russian units, weapons, or equipment to the Ukrainian border.[2]

  • Elements of Russia’s 41st CAA redeployed from temporary positions near Voronezh (northeast of Ukraine) to permanent basing facilities in Yelnya (east of Belarus) in late October. Open source satellite imagery confirmed that the elements of the 41st CAA had left Voronezh by October 27 and arrived at permanent Russian bases in Yelnya by October 31.[3] Four battalion tactical groups and combat support elements from the 41st CAA, the equivalent of a small division, deployed to Voronezh from their permanent base in Novosibirsk, in the Russian interior, in April 2021.[4] The Russian Ministry of Defense claimed at the time that this deployment would support Russia’s Zapad-2021 military exercise, though the 41st CAA did not participate in the main Zapad exercises from September 10-16.[5]
  • An unidentified Iskander ballistic missile battalion, likely part of the 41st CAA’s assets that deployed to Voronezh, was spotted traveling through Bryansk.[6] Open-source imagery of Russian bases in Bryansk taken on November 1 did not show the Iskander battalion, and its final destination is currently unknown, though it is likely redeploying to Yelnya.
  • Elements of the 1st Guards Tank Army began major training exercises on October 27. The Russian Ministry of Defense announced on October 27 that about 25 “subdivisions” (подразделение [podrazdelenie], a Russian word indicating units at the battalion echelon or lower) of the 1st Guards Tank Army, based east of Moscow, began exercises to earn the honorary title of “shock” units.[7]

You really think these countries thought the Orange Turd was a strong figure? He was an empty suit in a WH of incompetent yokels. The iron fist mirage was a figment in the Orange Turd's fantasies.

Man, you groupies drank the Kool Aid.

Yes, you had no idea what to expect. He literally started an insurrection on 1/6. Crazy Nationalism is something you don’t want to mix in with the worlds strongest military.

See my post above. He did something that no other leader in our nation has ever done in regards to storming the capital. Trump was a guy that wanted to project power and used nationalism to do so. I would think foreign countries took note on how unpredictable and crazy Trump was. For example, The left worried about him having the nuclear codes haha.

After Biden’s Afghanistan debacle, China and Russia know the Biden admin is full of incompetent yokels.

You actually think that had anything to do with Trump? Come on guys, the commies have done this 3 times with Mao, Deng Xiaoping, and Xi now. This is a communist party without free elections.
Sounds alot like what the Republicans want in America. They tell us this every single day.

Starts with OP.
C’mon with the prediction timeframe, Chistrodamus!

You’re fear mongering some crap about something you read online about places you couldn’t even find on a map.

At what point does your fear mongering about Russia invading upon Merkel’s exit become another bogus prediction?

How many such bogus predictions would we need to string together to get you to consider, ‘what if instead of being informed, you’re being manipulated by fear?’

Nationalism. A naive and stupid concept. You build and maintain strength with relationships. The Orange Turd is, was and always will be fool. His idea of retreating within our borders was among the most damaging of his many blunders.

China and Russia thought Trump was a crazy man and unpredictable and probably helped keep them honest. Regardless, I hope we stay out of any foreign wars. We have our own issues.
This. Never discount a small dick man's ability to throw rocks from outside of the fight. In this fight that small dick had access to nukes and everyone knew it. You can call Trump a small dick crazy mofo all day but you never know what crazy is going to do. Trump was more likely to blow the entire world up than look "weak", biden..... not so much. Russia and China play for keeps.

Too bad we did nothing to keep them from getting a foothold in the Crimea
LOL.
The Russians started building the naval base in Sevastopol in 1772.
It’s been in use by the Russians since 1783.

The Russian claim on Crimea predates our Republic, but ‘too bad we did nothing to keep them from getting a foothold in the Crimea.’

FFS!
