    I hope the Ukrainian people are giving the necessary supplies that they need to defend their homeland from the “Kremlin-led insurgents.” The movement of the bear’s personnel, equipment, and weapons are signs that the Kremlin is not serious about lasting peace in Ukraine. Shelling of Kramatorsk and Debaltseve are examples of the Kremlin not taking the necessary steps to resolve and draw down the conflict.

    One plane, low flying, loaded with air to ground missiles, gets through Russian air defense and takes out the train as it crosses the border…..if only it could be done!!!

    Ukraine must send forward artillery spotters into Donbas and a well trained artillery crew to keep accurate pressure on the armor coming in from the border.

    Now is a good time for US to test their new antitank weapon systems.
    What is Obama waiting for? Merkels approval?

    Dear Mr. President Obama, the time has come! Please help Ukraine before it’s too late.

    Look for these to pour over the border before the ceasefire supposedly starts. I would say Ukraine isn’t going to get any weapons now until the killers prove they have no intention of keeping their agreement. Hopefully there will be some clandestine help that will prevent advances.

    The rebels are going to need them as more Oplats and US TWO missiles come on the scene.
    I wonder how much the US would pay for one of a T-90?
    Some thing to think about boys

    • Mick Jones

      Those tanksaren’t T-90’s and there’s no such thing as TWO missile Murf. But thanks for the laughs.

        Two words guy. If your are going to be a grammar Nazi then you have to do it right yourself.

        Thanks for the chuckle.

    Fuck the ukraine and here’s hoping them nukes start landing in Kiev soon.

  • Mick Jones

    The tanks in the pictures that accompany this story aren’t even close t being Russia’s newest tanks. They appear to be T-72’s, They’re certainly not T-80’s orT-90’s. If you’re going to tell lies, it’s probably a good idea to not tell lies that anybody who isn’t totally ignorant of thesubject matter can see right through and easily refute.
