Maybe an attempt to influence Russian government thinking - 600 main battle tanks is going to take some time to deliver on and I dunno what they would be unless the US plans to pull some of the older Abrams that are sitting in their 100s parked up.

That seems very sus/dubious tbh.. give what they've been willing to supply before.

Looks like it's not a US delivery alone even though it was announced by Biden and not Stoltenberg. This is a NATO coalition delivery; many countries and even some outside NATO will be assisting to service this list

Lots of things like tanks/jets that turned out to be not-true. Gonna wait to see what happens here.

That's a lot of training that needs to happen for mbt's for example.

I've not too long come from a trip to Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania. It was interesting to see first hand some of the side-effects the war has had in the Baltics. In Latvia they seem to be finally standing up for themselves on Russian issues and there was a big protest to take down a contentious war memorial in Rīga, something that would never have happened a few years ago.

I think in a sense they are glad that the rest of the world is seeing some of the **** they've had to endure for decades. Years ago I visited the former KGB building in Rīga, where many Latvians were taken and never to be seen again. They even had some of the spent bullet casing left in a room where people were shot.
The receptionist at the hotel where I stayed was a Ukrainian refugee. There are quite a few working in Rīga now.

On the 4 hour coach journey from Latvia to Lithuania I just happened to be sitting next to a Belorussian guy and we had an interesting chat as I was 'forced' to share his bottle of whisky for most of the journey. He was basically ****** off that the war was happening. As he stated it in Russian, "it's an unnecessary civil war among brothers".

Echo chamber? Yes it is, why?

Probably the only time you will get anything right

echo chamber

an environment in which a person encounters only beliefs or opinions that coincide with their own, so that their existing views are reinforced and alternative ideas are not considered.



You are like someone defending Nazi Germany during ww2, unacceptable really.
No I've never defended the Ukrainian Nazi element Azov but plenty of people in this thread have.
