See, it is unimaginable to some people that the reasons for doing something might extend beyond caring about only oneself.

all this only because the president’s son and his buddies worked there and Zelensky has dirt on them all.

These people are on their own side, and don't care about anyone else. They learned from the best (Trump)

Yeah, the US and EU have prevented the Ukraine from being conquered by Russia. It is looking increasingly likely Russia will be defeated and Ukrainian independence preserved. Do you have a problem with that? Who's side are you on?

They hit 5 targets....5. Where is the lie in this story? Btw, you are the one saying they shot down all of the missiles, not the Ukrainian government.

How are these facilities being destroyed when the Ukrainians say they are shooting down all the drones and missiles?

What else are the Ukrainians not being honest about?

Nearly all missiles, and all(?) drones were shot down. Do you really believe all of the intended targets were hit?

4 months ago we were told that the Patriot missile system would stop the missile strikes.

Can we get a follow up on those game changing weapon systems.

Yes, they are apparently smart enough to convince you that they are smart.

The Russians were smart. They never went for Kiev.

They immediately seized the Zaporizhzhia Nuclear Plant, which is the largest atomic power plant in Europe and is the true gem of the region.

Every attempt to take the plant from the Russians has failed and sending NATO tanks into a nuclear plant is something even Zelensky won't do (I hope).

I suspect the Russians will never give up the key to that gem.

There is a difference between peace and appeasement.

Trust me! If they could find peace there, they can find it between Russia and Ukraine.

Sure Russia is the aggressor. Nothing but death, destruction, and misery will come by giving Ukraine tanks and missiles.

To say nothing of letting our tech fall into the hands of Russia if it is captured!

Posted in: NATO allies pledge more arms for Ukraine; Germany holds out on tanks See in context

I don't think Russian tanks are what NATO worries about. NATO countries can surely defeat Russia in a conventional war. Ukraine is doing quite well with just the relatively small amount of weapons NATO countries is providing them with.

I think more than anything they are worried about the tech falling into Russian hands, which is a legitimate worry.

A Russian invasion of the west with T type tanks is nothing to worry about. An invasion with tanks based on advanced western tech on the other hand...

As I mentioned in another post, US has given what amounts to less than 300usd/person so far (assuming 100 billion USD). A lot of it is used to purchase weapons from American companies. If that small amount could solve these bigger problems you mentioned, it would have been done a long time ago.

Homelessness and a massive drug problem in the USA ....also ageing infrastructure and roads etc...No money for universal health care but billions for munitions and war ...

What a crazy world we live in !!

Posted in: Global carbon dioxide removal totals 2 billion tons per year: report See in context

A direct quote from the link you shared: "The beneficial impacts of carbon dioxide on plants may also be limited, said co-author Dr. Philippe Ciais, associate director of the Laboratory of Climate and Environmental Sciences, Gif-suv-Yvette, France. “Studies have shown that plants acclimatize, or adjust, to rising carbon dioxide concentration and the fertilization effect diminishes over time.”"

I was shocked to find just how beneficial for plants all the CO2 is: https://www.nasa.gov/feature/goddard/2016/carbon-dioxide-fertilization-greening-earth/

Posted in: Global carbon dioxide removal totals 2 billion tons per year: report See in context

The CO2 fertilization effect (increase in plant productivity from elevated CO2) already stopped a long time ago. Unless you have some evidence no one knows of.

our planet is designed for high levels of CO2. The earth right now is actually craving for it. Plants and trees die without it. That is real science and not the hoax science they would like people to believe.

Posted in: Ukraine pushes for tanks as holdout Germany says new minister to decide See in context

Sven, even the US (biggest contributor so far) has not given all that much. Assuming 100 billion, that's 300usd/person in the US... Not exactly "all resources".

Yes, everyday the same melody, they demand much and from everything just get a little from something. If they get all the tanks in the world they next want all warplanes. It’s understandable in their situation, but many many people have to get up in the morning to produce the tanks or to work for their costs. Solidarity is one thing, but the rest of the globe also has a life to live, we can’t put all resources into those two fighting Russian and Ukrainian idiots only. They have to end the conflict or to flee the area, if they can’t withstand longer, period.

Russia needs a normal leader who doesn't invade neighboring countries and take their land. Until then, help Ukraine defend from this mad leader.

UA does not need new weapons rockets.

UA needs normal leader willing to negotiate about peace.

Posted in: Ukraine strike deaths hit 40; Russia seen preparing long war See in context

Do you honestly think Russia is serious about negotiating? Or trustworthy?

They won't even start negotiations until Ukraine agrees to recognize the land they stole. So, why is it in Ukraine's interest to humor them? Would you negotiate with a bully who attacked and stole from you, while lying about it the entire time?

Strangerland

They have choice to negotiate.

For any serious negotiation you need two and UA side is definitely prefer to continue in destroying of their country.

All in name of US interests.

Putin wants a long war, but I doubt Russian people do. The invasion will get more difficult over time as NATO countries continue to strengthen Ukraine's defense (they are getting less scared of Russia's response to weapon supply). Compared to a year ago, Ukraine is much better armed, Russia is...not.

Posted in: Russia claims capture of Ukraine's Soledar, but Kyiv says still fighting See in context

Did they invade and attack a foreign country? If not, your comparison doesn't make any sense.

Why don't you talk about the Ukrainian group Kraken? The same principle of organisation - a criminal group.... Why don't you talk about those dozens of criminals (or even more) who were released and armed by the Ukrainian authorities at the very beginning of the operation?

Posted in: Russia claims capture of Ukraine's Soledar, but Kyiv says still fighting See in context

Nobody promised you this. You promised us that Ukraine would be totally without power and heating by now though. Is it?

The "army of sockless drunkards" didn't defeat anything lately. Give credit where it is due, to the Wagner convict mercenary group. After months, they have apparently taken a salt mine from the... satanists(?). I hope Russians see the irony that their effort to liberate Ukraine is now centered a group of criminals shooting people and taking their stuff.

Two months ago we were promised that Zelensky would have retaken Crimea by now.

The parable that the media feeds us about what's going on doesn't seem to match the actual facts on the ground.

How come an army of drunkards without socks is defeating an army equipped with $50 billion worth of NATO weapons?

Oh ok, it's a conspiracy. Must not be a very good one considering how hard it is to join NATO then.

If you mean, NATO cannot expand if democratically elected governments via the majority of the population don't want it, I hope you are just trolling. Because if not, it suggests something very bad about your mental state. Ukraine itself being a good example.

Posted in: All-out drone war in Ukraine points to future See in context

Ummm, NATO cannot expand unless more countries want to join it... On the other hand, Russia invades countries that don't want to join it.

Why do you think more countries would want to join NATO?

The projection is never ceasing. Shows how divorced from reality the *+@#$ are. Just a few days in the "big meeting" between the unelected leaders of the EU and NATO, they started raving about how evil Putin is because he is apparently trying to recreate the Russian Empire. Then in the next sentence, without blushing one bit, started talking about NATO and EU expansion into Ukraine, Moldova, Georgia, Kosovo and setting up NATO subsidiaries in Asia.

Posted in: Zelensky promises 'everything necesary' to defend Soledar from Russia See in context

Not Russia, the Wagner PMC, i.e. mostly convicts from Russian prisons. They are the "good guys" that Russians need to thank, for saving the salt mine from the "bad guys" (Ukrainians defending their country). The Russian armed forces didn't do anything.

Dear comedian president:

Forget Soledar, Russia will liberate it soon..

C'mon Wagner convicts, you must liberate the salt mine!!! You are the heroes in this war against....Neo-naziism, satanism, and some other bad stuff. Don't worry if most of you will die for this salt mine town with nice tunnels; all of your sins will be forgiven (wink, wink).

Poor souls.

Posted in: Russia strives for first big Ukraine gains in months See in context

So Russia's strategy was to withdraw from a capital city, and spend 4(?) months and thousands of lives to get a salt mining town with some tunnels. And we're the ones being fooled by the media.

This is why Soledar and Bakmut are so important.

There is a massive network of tunnels that have been turned into an underground military base where ammunition is stored and soldiers sleep and eat. The tunnels are also used for infiltration operations all over the area, allowing troops to pop out, fight, and hide in the tunnel again.

The Russians temporarily withdrew from Kherson so they could focus on capturing this porcupine.

This is a massive success for the Russian forces.

The media won't admit it, but it is.
