US Response to Russian Invasion of Ukraine  

62 members have voted

  1. 1. What should the US response to a Russian invasion of Ukraine be?

    • Nuke 'em
    • Full conventional military response, troops, tanks, fighters etc take part in defense of Ukraine
    • Air/missile strikes against key Russian military targets
    • Economic embargo of Russia
    • Economic sanctions against Russia
    • Cutoff diplomatic relations with Russia
    • Nothing.

This is the beginning of the end for Russia. I have a feeling Ukraine is headed towards victory provided Europe and the collective west continues to train and supply them with what they need.

If/when these conscripts get slaughtered at an even greater clip than their troops are now, I think we see regime change.

The biggest question of the Russian Federation if this happens is who the hell takes Putin's place?

Agreed, this has to be f'ing terrifying. Time for the Russian people to wake up and rebel. Easier said than done I know, but at some point when is enough going to enough?

Yep.  Many fled to Canada to avoid going to Vietnam

A must watch.

By far the best, most powerful Vietnam coverage I’ve seen. I watch a lot of military/history stuff. 10 two hour episodes covering the War before, during and after. Detailed A-Z coverage with so many interviews from all sides. Including the drama at home. 
 

Also has dirty phone recordings of our Presidents and their excuses. 
 

It used to be on Netflix but they dumped it. I watched it there a few years ago and looked for it again recently. I think it’s on Amazon Prime. But I just bought the series. The Vietnam War. Great for binge watching on a weekend.

I think you either have to buy it or get PBS+. Really good, well rounded look at the war though.

I never knew the level of corruption with the South Vietnamese government was that thick. 
 

The interviews with our soldiers and the VC/NVA were super powerful. Comparing cultures and who was fighting for what. 
 

I knew a guy like you would like it.
