    How is all this military aid from the west actually getting into Ukraine at this point?

    Wondered the same. But apparently most of the fighting is concentrated in the east.

    You know, the Jets fan in me totally understands this impulse to look at not getting your ass kicked completely as being equivalent to actually winning, but that's really not the case here. If the Russians get pushed into the shock and awe protocol, this is over for the Ukraine.

    Very well put! He’s still going to look like a giant pus if he does anything like that.

    So what? Taking the analogy a step further, how many times have we all made fun of Tom Brady's sexual orientation?

    You’re right. When looking at the human toll, it really doesn’t matter. But I think the further he takes it, he has to calculate the economic toll on his country, and also the domestic backlash . I still wonder how close we really are to getting involved , if he starts using wmds etc.

    Well, if the end of the world does occur, don't forget to practice social distancing and wear a mask...

    Stay inside for 24 hours unless local authorities provide other instructions. Continue to practice social distancing by wearing a mask and by keeping a distance of at least six feet between yourself and people who not part of your household.

    Should that be an n95, or will a cloth mask do?

    Oh boy. Your link just gave me a flashback to my childhood.

    I was in kindergarten or 1st grade around the time of the Cold War and the Cuban missile crisis.

    We used to have these emergency drills at school where we'd all go out into the hallway and sit on the floor with our backs up against the wall.

    The older kids used to say that we had to clasp our hands over our heads, bend over, and kiss our ass goodbye!! :rolleyes:

    I see the Ukrainians are starting their own version of the Foreign Legion. Mercs won't be far behind depending on the payscale. Putin will have to close the supply lines bringing weapons into the Ukraine or this insurgency could last for years. By now Putin has to know any puppet govt he installs will be fighting an long term insurgency as well. Again, if Ukraine says no to NATO membership but yes to the EU, that guts Putin's argument. They could simply buy enough weapons on the open market to defend themselves without western help. They should have kept their nukes... Good luck trying to get any other country to disarm now...
