Even a Ukraine general is now saying it’s a stalemate, he really needs to consult with our experts on here.
Shelling children on the beach certainly qualifies
Cluster bombs are a war crime when used against civilians. Ukraine have not used cluster bombs against civilians.
How were Hamas hiding behind the children on the beach?Any bomb used against civilians (or a civilian facility) is a war crime, if civilians were deliberately targeted. Doesnt have to be a cluster bomb, it can be any weapon.
But it becomes tricky when the enemy is deliberately using a civilian facility to hide military equipment, which is definitely what Russia has done. And what Hamas has done in Gaza.
Hamas are well known for attacking Israel from a civilian position, then claiming “war crime committed by imperialist Zionist pigdog“ when Israel fires back. Especially when Israel has a legit right to fire back
More and more it’s going to be reliant on the US funding it, there’s a pattern in the EU with leaders to the right being voted in who are opposed to more military funding.I mean it’s a bargain compared to the alternative. But we could just stop slow walking military aid and give them enough to do the job
Literally this, If the leaders didn't prance around being all stupid last year we could of gave them everything needed and I'm 99% sure if we did that Russia wouldn't be in ukraine atleast the parts they raided instantly.I mean it’s a bargain compared to the alternative.

And it that scenario NATO would also be involved.Literally this, If the leaders didn't prance around being all stupid last year we could of gave them everything needed and I'm 99% sure if we did that Russia wouldn't be in ukraine atleast the parts they raided instantly.
Ukraine deserve all the support if not Russia will rebuild and go again as the did with the czenia war, this time it won't be ukraine vs Russians it will be hungary, Slovaks, czechs against Russia and ukraine.

Why? Are we involved directly now? We have given then almost everything, the only thing we haven't given them is quantity.And it that scenario NATO would also be involved.
If Russia invades/attacks Hungary it’d mean NATO being directly involved in fighting.Why? Are we involved directly now? We have given then almost everything, the only thing we haven't given them is quantity.
As for nato getting involved directly. Its only a matter of time before it happens Russia won't try to stop expanding.
Your proposal is for Ukraine to Keal over and die even though they have been fighting for freedom since the soviet Union.
I don't think that the west will stop funding Ukraine unless (god forbid) Trump gets back in. The vast majority of the western world wants a regime change in Russia so will keep funding them.
Things have slowed down to a stalemate again across most of the front as they do every year at this time. The weather makes it virtually impossible to make any worthwhile attacks or movement so both sides will prepare for things to start again in the spring.
One caveat to this might be the Ukrainians pushing out from their position from the left bank of the Dnipro river if they think that they can advance.
Anyone seen as a "viable" alternative by the West is either ostracized or in prison. There is no free political infrastructure for moderates or other parties to mount a challenge. Key roles including governorships are filled with Putin's own people.The Us certainly want regime change but they want a stooge like Gorbachov or a fool like Yeltsin. What they’d get would likely be far worse than Putin
Yup, I heard that. Which renders it all totally pointless.It’s total stalemate
Although both sides have launched ambitious offensives, the front line has barely shifted. After 18 months of war, a breakthrough looks more difficult than ever.www.nytimes.com
