Write up on the NATO control centre in Stuttgart for product distribution to Ukraine.

Excuses are like arseholes, we’ve all got one! Are these the defences you said the Russians would be through in 24 hours, with minimal effort and probably just using missiles, with half trained conscripts blah blah…would you like me to dig out your previous posts on this and paste them here Putin puppet? Give yourself a break and maybe admit which side of the fence you are on and also condemn Putins illegal invasion of Ukraine? Silence is all I hear….but now I’ve said that you may respond with chuff but not with an answer!

Hi Johnskie, one of many you posted previously, I could go on and on but cant be bothered!…….”I agree totally with DM. As I have already posted, if Russia goes in, which it will only do if provoked, it is likely to be over in hours with no invasion. The militia in the Donbas, fully trained and equipped, will be capable of sorting out the UA after that rain of death. Our QR forces wont have even got to Brize”.

“You put very well the reason why Russia is highly unlikely to do more in Ukraine than is necessary to defend Donbas if it is attacked. As a byproduct that might involve the destruction of the Nazi oriented Azoz groups as well as much of Ukraine’s military infrastructure. By using stand-off weapons but there would be little need for many Russian soldiers to cross the border”.

Another special one form you Jonhskie……but I will stop there, I dont mean to keep embarressing you and your boss PoopTin.

Another top post from you Johnskie……Love the fact you are wrong with your propganda chuff every post! Reply JohninMK JohninMK 3 months ago Reply to dan “The US/UK plus a NATO token group have got themselves into a rather unfortunate position. If the Russians attack to defend their citizens then it is possible nothing apart from that will happen. but if, contrary to what Putin has said, the actually attack Ukraine then, as almost everyone agrees it will be over in days. Then it gets interesting. Biden will have to sanction Russia or lose face but the potential sanctions that… Read more »

When the dust is settled on this war, there will be a lot of books written on what Ukraine did to defeat Russia (hopeful outcome) and what Russia did wrong. It will be interesting to better understand what really happened during the various battles.

I would imagine that some of the prep work and data gathering is already underway. One of the problems that potential authors will have if they leave that activity too long is that much useful data is on social media which disappears down memory holes becoming increasingly difficult to find as time passes. Much easier to snapshot it. Until we know what the Russians intents were we won’t know what they actually got wrong as opposed to judging it against what we would have done. Independent of that, they clearly had failures in some of their operations. As to who… Read more »

Social media is insanely biased though, as it’s impossible to fact check. Firstly the people posting are not expects in what they are reporting and making assumptions based on lack of knowledge and also everyone has a bias they are trying to sell. If anyone is writing books based on social media they are just in it for cashing in purposes. As for Russia not being in a hurry, I would disagree with that. Their rapid advance on the capital showed they were in a hurry. They have been forced to take time to regroup and resupply after that disaster.… Read more »

I agree with your biased comment but I would also postulate that the ‘official’ media are sometimes much the same. We should be smelling a rat when we are only allowed to see one side and are unable to make a judgement ourselves. I have little doubt that, on both sides, the interviewed tend to answer questions, which may be leading, in ways that they expect the interviewer to expect, that’s human nature. Authors can suffer from the same biases or can write to suit their audience or paymaster, which is why history can be as the winners want it… Read more »

Don’t worry we will soon have the real official history told by hollywood. How a mentally damaged US ex special forces soldier single handly beat off the Russians, involving some sexy scientist.

Christ on a bike you type some chuff, but as we ignore what you say, as it depends on your daily/weekly agenda and instructions, we are all intrigued by the lack of condemntaion of Putins illegal invasion of Ukraine? Why? Do you want me to re word it as “Russias special operation” to make it more paltable? Are you scared to admit you support it? No moral fibre? Intrigued.

FFS you are hilarious. We can all read you intial posts and propganda on the subject, certainly the way you described the Ukrainian military, ceretainly NOT what you are saying now (excuses, excuses). And yes the Russians were and still are crap, but remember, after an extended peiod of time you can even teach a monkey to use a spoon!!!!! The Russians will eventualy rob, rape and murder their way through a large portion of Ukraine, but, with time thats a given with their blunt, dumb and simpleton tactics and SOPs. However is that somethging to be proud about, certainly… Read more »
