The *OFFICIAL* Russia Is About To Invade Ukraine Thread


Leaders from the world’s leading democracies came to an agreement Thursday to use frozen Russian assets to help provide Ukraine with some $50 billion over the next year in its ongoing war with Russia.

The agreement, which comes after months of intense diplomacy, was one of the top goals of the Group of Seven leaders

The use of Russian assets, which involves a complex mechanism to provide a loan with the seized assets as collateral, marked a victory for Biden and other leaders who had been hoping to use the summit to send a strong signal of support for Ukraine at a precarious moment in the war.

“This has been something that the United States has put a lot of energy and effort into,” national security adviser Jake Sullivan told reporters. “We see proceeds from these assets as a valuable source of resources for Ukraine at a moment when Russia continues to brutalize the country, not just through military action on the front but through the attempted destruction of its energy grid and its economic vitality.”

Sullivan credited Giorgia Meloni, Italy’s hard-right prime minister and host of this year’s G-7 summit, for navigating the thorny disputes among countries over the plan’s technical details.

“The Italian presidency I think has done a really good job bringing everyone together around the table to try to deal with what’s both a simple and complex proposition,” he said. “The simple proposition is, we have to put these assets to work. The complex proposition is, how do we do that specifically? I think we are on the verge of a good outcome here.”

The G-7 consists of Britain, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan and the United States. These countries have struggled with how to continue supporting Ukraine as its war with Russia bogs down and the public in some nations, including the United States, becomes more skeptical of sending aid to Kyiv.

In addition to Ukraine, the leaders are expected to discuss a U.S.-sponsored cease-fire plan for Gaza

Still, a reelected Donald Trump or any other future American president could withdraw from the agreement because it is not a treaty and would not be ratified by Congress. Trump has expressed skepticism of Ukraine’s battle with Russia and called on Europe to take on more of the burden of financing the war effort.

Trump’s potential return to the White House has hung over the conference here, with the possibility that this could be Biden’s last summit.

That has been a backdrop for one of Biden’s main messages here: the importance of global alliances for America’s interests.

“Every day subsequent to this summit, his goal is going to be to do as much as possible to reinforce the idea that the United States is best served if we are closely aligned with the our democratic allies and partners,” Sullivan said. “The difference between past times when the U.S. has not been aligned and what you’re going to see here in Puglia is something that can actually be measured, in my perspective, in improved American standing in the world.”

Let’s be honest, if put to a vote in the House today, I doubt a multi year commitment to help Ukraine would pass. The pro Putin wing of the GOP would never let it pass. It’ll never stop being weird to see so many Americans sell out to Putin. All because they see him as a Christian conservative ally who hates blacks and gays and helps Trump in elections.

Ha ha, pretty much.

**** yeah Giorgia!
 
Speaking of Meloni, there's sexual tension between India and Italy. Well, at least from India towards Italy.

That's the married soon to be outgoing PM of the UK, Rishi Sunak, the ****ing mental giant that he is.


What a ****ing ****.
 
Ukraine is showing the world how bad Russian air defense systems are. Russia sells its S-400 air defense system for $1 billion dollars each. Ukraine has realized the Russian S-400 cannot shoot down ATACMS missiles even when the ATACMS is aimed straight at the S-400. Ukraine just hit another S-400 which I think brings the count to six knocked out in the past week. Russia only had 57 of these. The M39A1 ATACMS being used to take them out isn't our newest, most advanced munitions. These are pieces that have been collecting dust in military warehouses since the 1990's, and S-400 can't stop them.

Why that one? It is an attractive girl telling you the sky is blue. I genuinely hope you learned nothing from her video because you already knew the Russians would use their weapons of war against civilian targets including hospitals where they treat children.

If you want to learn something, watch this one:

War is different now. Tanks are not of great use. Ukraine doesn't want any more American Abrahams main battle tanks. They are relics. War is now fought with grenade-dropping quadcopters equipped with infrared imagers. Camouflaged uniforms don't hide you. Trees don't hide you. Digging a foxhole doesn't hide you. Falling asleep is deadly. If you didn't watch the video above, there are a couple Russian troops sleeping in a foxhole when a Ukrainian drone flies overhead in the middle of the night and drops a grenade between their heads as the operator says "sweet dreams" in Ukrainian. This generation of drones is so effective that Ukraine emptied their zone of human life.

The drones in testing now to be the next generation are AI driven. Jammers have no effect because the drone isn't communicating with anything after getting its targeting information. The operator designates a tank as a target then the drone does the approach on its own and hits the most vulnerable part of the vehicle or troop formation without external input.
 
President Joe Biden reportedly skipped a meeting with world leaders — which was intentionally set up “in the early evening” — shortly after the war in Ukraine erupted because he needed to “go to bed.”

The startling revelation raises serious concerns about Biden’s ability to manage crises beyond the 6-hour schedule he keeps – 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. — which also includes naps.


The Wall Street Journal reported that German officials sought to meet with Biden in June 2022, just a few months after Russia invaded Ukraine, along with other world leaders during the annual G7 Summit.

 
This could’ve been avoided If European countries stopped providing Ukraine with weapons and if Ukrainians just agreed to be slaughtered.
Lol this shows how uneducated you are on this matter. European countries are literally the reason Ukraine got absolutely destroyed in the West. Ukraine was so under armed because NATO was doing nothing for them. They had to sit and beg for American arms. Nobody from these European Countries was helping them when they needed help the most.

I was in the process of posting this bit from a press conference where Joe Biden's weak stance arguably gave Putin the green light to invade Ukraine, but in watching it I was more shocked in how much Biden has diminished in 2 years. The guy in the clip could speak from notes on the podium instead of a teleprompter, and could take a question to clarify a position (even if he didn't really clarify it).



Biden was still old two years ago, but the contrast between the Biden in that clip and the Biden at the debate is shocking.

Yup, it's crazy watching him from even his days of Obama. While he's always been a terrible human he at least used to be articulate and well spoken. Now the guy think his Unlce was eaten by cannibals. I posted yesterday how he was supposed to have a meeting with world leaders at the G7 summit, but he was too sleepy.
