For a nuclear "superpower" is has shown it cannot defeat a smaller neighboring nation in conventional warfare. Hardly anything worth crowing about if your a Russia supporter.
About 6000 nuclear warheads delivered with hypersonic missiles is certainly enough to remove the entire US in about 20 minutes from the planet. But if you still think Russia is not capable to strike back, I suggest you make an appointment with your doctor!

Russia can't even defeat Ukraine. Do you think they are going to be less incompetent againsy NATO and kill everyone in 32 countries?
Do you want to dispute that Russia is able to do very serious damage with about 6000 nuclear warheads?

This has a long way to go yet, but if Ukraine forces get through the three layers of Russian defenses there will be no stopping them mopping up Russian units as they run for Russian territory. They are through the first and toughest layer of defenses in the south.
You forget that Russia is according to their Government not even at war yet. What we have seen so far is a small special military operation.
Just pray that there will be no war between Nato and Russia. The chance of survival of such a war would be zero in the Nato countries!

Ukraine is getting fantastic support from the G7 countries, all graveyards and hospitals in Ukraine are full now, the economy and infrastructure is destroyed, millions fled the country and Ukraine is much smaller now. Is the strategy working?

Anybody wishing for peace in Europe must be prepared to get a peace deal with Russia. So far I haven't seen a honest and fair peace offer from the G7 countries! Of course there will be no peace deal without considering the wishes of Russia! Why should Russia agree to a deal without getting a fair cut of the cake?

The Kremlin has not annexed anything in Ukraine. The ethnic Russian majority in eastern Ukraine has voted for joining Russia in a referendum. You might or might not like the outcome of the referendum, but democratic countries should consider the wish of the population expressed in a referendum. I as a Swiss citizen am quite disturbed to see that Russia respected a referendum but the so called democratic west does not care about the referendum. Democracy means that the population has the right to express their wish in a referendum!

Very good idea. Russia will go shopping somewhere else and the G7 countries will close their factories.

Glorifying violence is a very important feature of US culture, for example in movies and video games, but also with the posture of its military. Even the US Government organizes mass shootings, for example in Iraq, Libya, Afghanistan, Serbia... The violence in the US is a direct consequence of that.

So so, the US writes the rules of the so called rules based international world order and anybody else has to comply. I guess the majority of the world is not interested.

Isn't it interesting to note that nobody has disputed the democratic election of President Putin in Russia, but the presidential election in the US is disputed? As an independent observer from Switzerland, the US has certainly not met the standarts of a free and democratic election, there were too many irregularities. But I do not know if Donald Trump has won or not.

The world's only nuclear terrorist so far was President Truman, a US Democrat.
And another unconfortable fact is that the only reason for the existence of Nato was threatening the Sowjets and is now threatening Russia!

If I as a South African could express a wish, it would be building nuclear power stations the Japanese way. Without sufficient energy, Africans will never be able to pay off debts. Making money starts with being able to use tools and these tools need to be plugged in in a reliable electricity grid. If the world asks us to stop burning coal and gas, we should replace coal and gas fired power stations with useful technology!

I will visit Japan again only if I have no trouble at the borders. I had a very good time in Osaka, Kyoto and Nara and I want to thank the Japanese for their hospitality.

Face the facts, free people take a vaccine or not and travel to a foreign country or not according to their personal wishes and desires. I certainly respect the Government of Japan, but I hope the Government is respecting me too with my wish to skip that vaccines and see the ancient temples in Kyoto and Nara, eat Japanese food and drink sake. If Japan wants to challenge leaders like Xi, Putin and Kim, the only way to do so is by respecting my choices as an unimportant dweller in this world! I saved a half million yen in cash and I hope I can soon spend it as I like!

Switzerland lifted all restrictions and there was no problem. I think Governments should stop bullying the people, whoever wants the vaccine can get it.
Free countries allow people to be free!

and you tell us that such a research laboratory in Ukraine funded by the US is no problem? Seriously?
Should be fine. The US funds many labs across the world. And, BTW, most of these facilities were set up in the Soviet era.
Prof. Luc Montagnier, a nobel laureate for discovering a virus, told us something else.
And ask the people in Hiroshima and Nagasaki what could happen when the US peacefully researches nuclear energy!

Russia will achieve the goals. Don't get fooled by Nato propaganda.
We witness now the end of western imperialism, the music of the future is BRICS. China, India and Russia have sufficient nukes to strike back at the US and UK if necessary.
And I, from South Africa, think that Japan should be more active and tell these western imperialists that a strike with a nuke is not funny.
Gorbachev did the right thing and set Eastern Europe free. Nato should have been disbanded back then. But no, they continued to threaten Russia and expanded to the east. And now, Ukraine pays the price for flirting with Nato.
There is a choice now, either treat Russia with respect or start a war and face 6000 nukes!

The climate change theories have one goal, depriving a large number of people of a modern life and human rights. Did you know that about 6 million people, according to the WHO, die annually in developping countries because of inadequate energy supply? And no, those mainly subsaharan Africans do not die from climate change and they are dying right now!
