Ukraine needs someone like him !In the Vietnam War, the USSR also supplied weapons and intelligence information. However, I do not think that they were a party to the conflict.

I never denied they are getting killed in Bakhmut. Doesn't mean I will ignore everything else like you and scream Bakhmut since 3 weeksYes, that is exactly what I'm saying. I'll say it again, it means nothing, zero. What does mean something is Zelensky throwing thousands of troops into the Bakhmut meatgrinder, but that means nothing to you. Keep focusing on the meaningless crap, and ignore the major things, that's what you do best.
More likely way setting up the ground work to enable large scale military contracts.Might be just arrogance.
I don't think all those 60 year old bear bombers are in top shape to fly with a full load when on a full tank. Pictures of the bomber bases before the attack show mid air refueled.. So, the refueling tankers are part of Russian bombing strategy.. Also, Russians needs more than a week preparation for bombing and post bombing run maintenance.. Moving the bomber base to say far east or Siberia.. will cause require the logistics network to move as well.. It's not a big problem.. but, it does impact the Russians' bombing schedule in the short runThese bombers have a range of 7k km with a full payload. So far their round trip is under 1500 km, so it means nothing to move these bombers back 2k km, but they might probably only move them back a thousand km at most.
Well, would you say something else if in his position? Wagnerites have been storming the city since July with horrendous losses and very modest territorial gains, he has to come up with some excuse. And since it cannot be denied that Russians didnt conquer Bakhmut, he has to insist that they didnt even try.Yevgeny Prigozhin, the founder of the infamous Wagner mercenary group taking part in the war, said his forces are mainly focusing their efforts on destroying the Ukrainian army, writes AFP.
He also said that this operation was called "Bakhmut's meat grinder".
guess masterchief, dark sorrow and varzone like stupid polaks as well. The only horrendous losses we keep seeing here is Ukrainians driving through mines, drone and ATGM strikes on their vehicles, post pictures and footages of themselves with bandages of being near death. Keep sending a few hundred ukrops there every day.Well, would you say something else if in his position?

What world class weapons? Do you mean junk like Vikramadatya, T-90, Mig-29K, etc. Or a system like S-400 that is full of backdoor? As for IAF we are not strong because of Russian weaponry but because of Indian and Western systems.You are so wrong about the Russians. They have provided world class weapons to Indians at affordable prices. We are the 4th largest and powerful air force thanks to Russian weaponry.
Time and again it was import lobby working on behest of Russians that sabotaged Indian products e.g. Arjun MBT, hit-jobs against QRSAM, Russians trying to derail FMBT and FICV program, etc. It was all Russian,No it is the western MIC that is the biggest threat to Indian MIC. Indian MIC has been sabotaged by western interests time and time again.
That is pure BS and next level cope for personal gratification. Look at Russia-PRC trade and Russia-India trade, Russia's tension will be clear.How? The conflict only lasted for a few days and PRC ordered those weapons long before the conflict started. And Russia made sure that India got the latest version of the weapons something that they did not provide to China. If you want to talk about double dealing, why don't you talk about the US giving F-16s, a nuclear delivery capable platform.
Russians also sell stuff to Pakistan.
Only stuff that will not hurt India.
What you choose to believe is up-to you. I do support your freedom of thought.Bullshit. They respect us very much.
Geopolitics is not binary. I have been telling you the same thing from start of this war. Being friendly to US doesn't mean spitting on Russian face.So do the French and even the English. But you don't see us spitting in their faces do you like you want us to spit in the face of Russians at the behest of US?
Answer me this question : Are you classified as US whore. At the end of day you toe to the US line.Yeah as long as you toe the US line or become a US whore.
That is the point we don't have pick fight with Russia to be with US. At the end of fact remains India interest are better served allying with US.Good but that doesn't mean sacrificing long standing relationships.
They did sell all their weapons systems to PRC and even gave them a better deal.Good for the Russians. They have a very long border with China and it is in their interests to remain on good footing with China. That's what I would do if I was Russia and we Indians cannot begrudge them for wanting to secure their borders and national interests first. But at no time during their dealings with China, did they contemplate on backstabbing us or betraying us.
US never said that. This is all imaginary BS cooked in your mind.No it is not but the US does not want us to have any independent thoughts. They just want us to blindly follow them and do what they say not do what they do. You are so blind to the US's intentions & character because all you see is US dollar signs being waved in your face like a cheap prostitute.
This is all imaginary BS cooked in your mind. Indian GOI is more than capable to have a balance relationship.IT IS NOT A MUTUALLY BENEFICIAL ALLIANCE!!! The only alliance that US will allow is that you give up your national security interests and cater to US interests firstmost. That is not mutually beneficial.
You don't apologize for being in the US but you should not virtue signal India for allying with US even if it means abandoning Russia. We Indians will do what is in our best Interest and currently it is allying with US.Now you are resorting ad hominem attacks. I will not apologize for being in the US. You have no right to silence me on that.
You are welcome to have your believes but the fact is Russia is a dying power. It treats India as cash cow and all our dealings are transaction in nature.Yes we have those but that doesn't mean we have to give up our autonomy and our long standing relationships for the promise of few cheap dollars and freebies. Those problems will not be solved that way. Those problems will be solved when we stand up and take charge for ourselves and do what's in the best interests of our nation and take collective responsibility and rely on ourselves. That includes honoring long lasting relationships with countries that have come through for us before.
Only people with full bellies and comfortable life talk about moral conviction and belief.There is no false pride or false ego here. It is called having moral conviction and belief in oneself and his strengths. You have the habit of thinking that India is weak and therefore needs to align with US out of weakness.
I contest that and say you are wrong.
What's wrong with going slow to avoid high casualties? It's total bullshit that the Wangers have suffered high losses. If I were you, the thing I would be most worried about is how incredibly patient the Russia's are and will continue to be. Bakhmut will fall. I don't know when, but I do know it's inevitable, and not only that it will also come at a much higher price to Ukraine than Russia. Slow and steady wins the race.Well, would you say something else if in his position? Wagnerites have been storming the city since July with horrendous losses and very modest territorial gains, he has to come up with some excuse. And since it cannot be denied that Russians didnt conquer Bakhmut, he has to insist that they didnt even try.
Zelensky has so far kept his word about Sevrondonest and Lynsychansk being the last cities that will be taken by the Russians. Unfortunately that promise was not only stupid, but impossible to keep, and is getting thousands of soldiers killed for no reason. Zelensky also promised when he ran for president to end the war, but that idiot broke the wrong promise. That's what idiots do best.I never denied they are getting killed in Bakhmut. Doesn't mean I will ignore everything else like you and scream Bakhmut since 3 weeks
