All signs are pointing to Russia preparing an attack against Ukraine without provocation based on pr

I am imploring Western media to cover the dangerous situation unfolding in Ukraine. All signs are pointing to Russia preparing an attack against Ukraine without provocation based on pre-medidated manufactured garbage, which they are good at creating.

Gleiwitz is here. Russian state agency TASS: “Ukrainian assault drone has killed a child in Donetsk People’s Republic”. I expect an urgent meeting of Russian Security Council within hours and probably an announcement of invasion.

4. My spouse is tired of me saying it, but...

I have felt for over a year that a major major conflict (WWIII?) is drawing near. Maybe I'm only stating the obvious.

Russia/China semi-aligned, Russia making these types of moves, China moving on Taiwan, Philippines, etc

We can't even manufacture the chips we need to build cars/trucks

We are at an internally political weak point we haven't been in...i dunno, since the Great Depression. Our populace is so divided that a significant percentage would, at least initially, side with Russia just 'cause "own the libs".

But things in the U.S. are looking better...why wait till we are stronger?

10. A Gray War or Gray Zone is where one side stops just short of conflict

- activities by a state that are harmful to another state and are considered to be acts of war, but are not legally acts of war https://dictionary.cambridge.org/us/dictionary/english/grey-zone

Basically Putin is taunting us, stopping just short of aggression that would trigger a response. The Atlantic Council posits that Putin has his eye on Belarus, to the north of Ukraine, and has made significant inroads into annexation. See - https://www.atlanticcouncil.org/blogs/ukrainealert/is-russia-slowly-annexing-belarus-in-plain-sight/

The way i read this is they are doing the SAME thing in Belarus that they are doing in OUR country! DESTABILIZE any way they can! I would be full in agreement that NATO send in troops!

15. Agreed. The setting requires a unified response from NATO

A unilateral confrontation by the US, or any other, is a recipe for failure.

7. NATO should respond with full force if Russia attacks

Russia is a malignant dictatorship which cannot be allowed to swallow up its neighbor.

8. As liberal democracy is under a brutal assault at home,

the tyrants abroad, Putin and Xi will be empowered to clamp down on their own populations as well as their neighbors.

9. I've also read that Russia also has troops on the border of Belarus as well

I wonder if Russia is making a play for the Baltics.

13. Load a C-5 with anti-tank missiles...

... and show them bring off-loaded and deployed in Ukraine. Give the Russians something to think about.
