    I doubt there's a politician alive that thinks in terms of 15 years, let alone 150. Same apples to most voters, 3 years maybe or the life of their loans. Some more lately maybe thinking of their children's future and what sort of world they will inherit.
    We fool ourselves all the time that we have actual control of anything much.

    You are also a liar who has been been asked repeatedly for your evidence for making such claims, which every time you have ignored. There was a lot in your opinion i agreed with until that point.

    I have read the ignore function is a wonderfull thing. I have been trying to discuss Ukraine repeatedly. If you and others are fine watching people post comments again and again, with no factual basis, then do not bleat, when it goes off topic.

    Johan, you have lost either way.

    If you are a Russian disinformation worker, you should have realised now that you are conversing with a total of around 20 people; and most of those are not your target as they are intelligent and robust in their opinions. There are far better platforms with far higher numbers of gullible people to work on.

    If you are just a guy spendng his time on a chat forum trying to convince someone you are Swedish, but never discussing the topic at hand, that is nothing less than pathetic.

    Please take stock of yourself, perhaps grow up a little, and add something interesting to this (or other) threads.

    BINGO! Im pleases me to see at least one person can see logic. Can you explain why others do not possess your sharp intellect?

    Try reading what has been posted before casting stones. Your personal observations are far from reality, but that is ok, it shows your own immature mind has not fully developed; give it time.

    What does Sandtowns comment have to do with anything you said, that I said?

    Now, your English is not great in the sentence above, and so it can be construed more than one way.
    And if that is the case, why not ask for clarification? Instead you made your own interpretation, which is fine, what is not fine is to say "you said it", which clearly is a lie.

    But, to call someone a liar...lighten up
    .

    I call BS and liars when i see it. You can live by your own low moral standards if you choose, no sweat, just do not complain when you get caught out.

    You can apologise and let this thread get back to Ukraine.

    I wonder if there is a larger number of armored fighting vehicles that can approximate the capability of main battle tanks? Thinking of six and eight wheeled vehicles with 25-50 mm cannons and missiles.

    Agree. I did not programmaticaly ignore the previous alter ego and will not ignore the new one, but even if trolls convince no one, changing this thread from meat & potatoes to a watered down, salty broth significantly reduces thread's value and is therefore their success.

    A perfect illustration of a Putinist professional propagandist snaring himself step by step in his own net of lies and at the same rate loosing all credibility while being recognized for what he is. Glad you took the trouble to compile the illustration.

    Stiring up **** and deranging discussions without adding any pretended "facts" is another typical strategy of those propagandists and now you start doing that too. Here we go!

    Certainly western tanks will likely change the game for armor-on-armor engagements. With the larger range of these tanks over their Russian counterparts this should lead to a more rapid attrition of Russian armor. The mobility will be helpful in allowing them to evade counter-battery fire from longer-range artillery.

    While there are a few Russian tanks with comparable range, they haven't been fielded in large numbers, or utilized well from a tactical perspective.

    Yes, one has to admire Zelensky for standing up to Trump's extortion attempt. The Z man stood up to it in the face of enormous pressure.

    On the other hand that lying sack of merde Trump is not wrong all the time (his re-boot of NAFTA was an improvement).

    All very well having tanks that can travel 500km, but without the logistics to keep them moving, pretty meaningless. Look at the convey stuck beyond Kyiv last year. Sitting ducks.
