Ukraine last year doubled its ammunition production for NATO-calibre artillery systems.


The Ukrainians are an energetic, creative people.

They will need to be to overcome the Putinists in this country.

"Ukraine was already producing 90 percent of the drones it uses"

This pisses directly into Donald Trump's eye.

If they can produce their own arms and munitions. That's less mooching.

But are they Economically. Up to the Task?

Or will they be an expensive and dangerous Satellite?

Another Israel, all the Worst ways. Costly to maintain and a Neverending Tripwire for War.

A Colony in the Far East of Europe.

Yep, as you have warned us before, evil 'ZioNazis' everywhere - in Israel, Ukraine, "MuriKKKa," the West...

Or will they be an expensive and dangerous Satellite? Costly to maintain and a Neverending Tripwire for War.

Actually, would be a lot more costly in the long run for the USA, Europe and the world if Putin gets his hands on the resource-rich (coal, gas, wheat/agriculture etc.) "breadbasket of Europe" Ukraine... and goes on to Moldova and so on:

Putin Defends Hitler's Invasion of Poland in Carlson Interview - Feb 09, 2024
|------- Tucker Carlson's interview with Russian President Vladimir Putin, posted online on Thursday, began with a 30-minute history lesson from the Moscow leader, who made broad claims about Russia's historical claim to Ukraine.

While talking through the Soviet campaign in World War II, Putin claimed that Adolf Hitler had been "forced" to invade Poland in 1939.

Putin said: "Hitler had no choice but to start war with Poland. Hitler just wanted to 'realize his plans' and Poland was 'uncooperative' and 'forced' Hitler to attack and start World War II."

Other translation: "Why did the war start on September 1, 1939 precisely against Poland? Because it turned out to be uncooperative. Hitler had no choice but to implement his plans, starting specifically with Poland."

Another translation of the Russian transcript also states "the Poles forced it, they played around and forced Hitler to start the Second World War with them." The Russian word "vynudili" repeated by Putin for emphasis, translates as "forced" or "compelled."

"Peace for our time" depends on Ukraine defeating Putin's imperial Russia, getting Russian PMCs out of Africa and ME, and dismantling Ayatollah's network of Arab Islamist terrorist proxies. That should also tamp down China's ambitions in S/SE Asia.

And not really costly at all, pittance at the most, first was dump of old mothballed weaponry that would cost to demil, now R&D and testing better (and sometimes cheaper) weapons and munitions, replacing or upgrading of old weaponry by the Allies with significantly better and more powerful, more precise equipment, while wrecking the economy and military capabilities of the enemy, seeing how well or badly their super-hyped "hypersonic" and/or other weapons are performing against available defense, etc. etc. - the short and long term bennies of maintaining / expanding the "New World Order" of 'MurriKKKa' and other 'ZioNazis' vastly outweigh the temporary troubles.

Aaaaaand, in the Red Corner - the Axis:
Czar Putin's "glorious" imperial Russian Federation (aka "Eurasia"), "wise" Ayatollah's Islamic Republic of Iran, Dear Leader and Supreme Commander Kim Jong Un's Democratic People's Republic of Korea, and the "Cautious Coach" Xi's People's Republic China.

Know thyself, know thy friends, know thine enemies.

If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.

Appear weak when you are strong, and strong when you are weak.

"Si vis pacem para bellum"

@#3 ... But are they Economically. Up to the Task? ...

The question your alias' comment so studiously appears to attempt to avoid is: should countries interested in being a democratic country allow a dictator to just invade a sovereign country?
