It is dangerous to live with Russia. There is always a chance that they will come to the rescue with tanks. And in the process they will accidentally kill you.
They live in a shit and want everyone to live like that

Putin is not realizing that he is not the only one with a set of oil/gas valves to close. Germany, for example, could just as easy close them on their end.

The big meeting the U.S. Secretary of Defense held in Germany attracted one attendee I would not have expected to see. A representative from Israel. His little flag sitting in from of him was hard to miss. I don't know the exact count of how many where there, but it considerably exceeded the NATO membership.

Default These days take whatever humor ypu csn get.

I was listening to some military analysis yesterday and I heard this:

Prior to this year, Russia was reckoned to have the second best military, just behind the U.S.

Now, they are reckoned to have the second best military in Ukraine.

Nice joke, but to be serious: if you measure by results since WWII, Israel is way up there.

Refers to 2nd best after the US, not the presence in Ukraine.
