1. The Pig had one job and he screwed it up.

We would be in this position whether the Pig won his second term. Good thing he screwed it up, not surprising when everything you do is based on lies and scams.

3. "For the many on DU that have become obsessed with nuclear bombs"

Born after 1990, Iíd bet. I canít imagine any other reason, other than perhaps someone totally out of their depth.

Plenty of places for prospective Rambos to sign up and fight for Ukraine if they desire.

On edit: who would base a decision like this even a personal one off one guys opinion. Itís beyond embarrassing.

4. OK--- but 'how suicidal is he?'

It isn't his veiled or not so veiled threats of nuclear war that frighten me-- after all, he is 'smart' and 'savvy' enough to realize that what he threatens is 'mutually assured suicide'-- if not personal suicide (since he could hunker down and survive for a long while), then the mutual suicide of Russia and the United States as superpowers, and as nation-states---


It is the fact that he does not seem entirely rational, in combination with his nuclear threats, which frightens me.
I don't want to die, yet...

As such, I am counting on the courage of the people of Ukraine, as our own 'buffer zone'. I pray for them to inflict so much damage on the Russian armed forces, that Putin will be unable to subsequently mount military aggression against any NATO country afterwards. I realize that this is selfish....but I no longer enjoy 'the immortality of youth'.

The borders of NATO countries is where I draw the line-- where we have actual treaty commitments. If it comes to that, then that is where we must stand firm and ignore his nuclear threats. This gives me a little time to make my own personal arrangements, if I believe they are necessary...

I bought a house in 2020, on the northern edge of a 'tertiary target', my state capitol... I was a 'student' of nuclear bomb effects and a 'survival hobbyist' in the 1980s--- but I thought those days were over when I bought this property. Now I regret not making more of an effort to get well outside of this city....

Now whatever preparations I might make, the whole house would likely come down on me in a major exchange-- and I can't afford to bury a shelter in the backyard... and even if I did, what would I emerge for, afterward?

I hope Putin is "as sane" as the subject of the OP seems to believe.

5. "...Putin isn't "suicidal" enough..."

So, he's suicidal, but it's not that bad? Or not that good?

7. Is there a scale of "suicidal"

It seems binary to me.

You know, youíre either pregnant or youíre not.

6. I think it is more than clear that NATO interference in Ukraine would stop russia

Based even more on this information. Russian oligarchs and leaders would not murder their own families over Ukraine.

8. Putin's been blackmailing, manipulating and

controlling the West for years with threats of nuclear missiles. It works for him. ďWe mustnít upset Vlad ď Itís why he keeps invading other countries and gets away with it.
