I don’t believe this, but still they are managing to hold them back as much as possible. I still fear for them. Shoot! I fear for the world because that insane Putin might hit the button. All it takes is 5 Nukes aimed at 5 different places to destroy life as we know it on earth. We won’t even know life if that happens. I fear he is that insane.
Heavy fighting is continuing across much of Ukraine. In one small rural town, Voznesensk, Ukrainian troops, backed by local people, have seen off an attack by the Russian army. When Russian forces arrived in tanks they were trapped in an ambush that turned into a rout. Ben Brown in Lviv presents BBC News at Ten reporting by Andrew Harding in Voznesensk.
You might not be around long enough to answer, but if you try to answer this in a civil manner, maybe you will.
How would you react if a neighboring nation sent tanks into your home?
Assuming that your nation had not attacked that neighbor and was not killing people within your borders. “Self-defense” can be hard to define, so maybe that’s the question, but try to answer without saying something about the US military.
We know the murderous dictator of Russia will do anything, including using gas and nukes, to have a land bridge between Russia and the illegally gained Crimea. He doesn’t care about the Russian people or any people, unless they are literally kissing his butt and helping him get what he wants. Even then he doesn’t care, because he’d poison them at a drop of a hat.
This is a very bad thing, but I don’t know if that’s going to happen just yet. Ukrainians still have their country and have not given up the fight. They won’t surrender to a murderous dictator either.
Give into a murderous dictating bully who’s up there with Hitler and Stalin? And what of the people on the eastern side of the Ukraine? They don’t want to be forced into being ruled by the murderous dictator.
No it’s not. If you’re being raped are you just going to lie there and be raped? No, you are going to fight back.
It’s not just about “nationalism”. It’s their home, which they are being raped and abused, not just robbed, and they don’t want to be oppressed by a murderous baby killing dictator of the likes of Hitler and Stalin. How many times does that have to be said?
Not if the robber is also attempting to rape me. I will fight back and not just lie down and not just lie down, take it, allowing him to have his way with me. This is what is happening to the Ukrainians. They are being pillaged, raped, robbed, and murdered. Fighting back is the only option or they will have to lie there and just take it for as long Russia wants to oppress them.
Is this something you expect them to be announcing to you?
That sort of childish, isn’t it? I mean it’s all pointless.
But if you’re defending your country against an invading army, it seems what people do, they defend their homeland. You say “in vane”
Of course next madman Putin is going to level the entire country, with super duper weapons, and you’ll be advising us that the entire world needs to give Putin what he want? Is that your idea of a solution?
Beside after this Russia will be in worse shape than ever, but you make it sound like a game. Why?
Does globally interconnected and interdependent society mean anything to you? How about cascading consequences?
