America will jump in to the foray and our troops are likely to follow !!
where the Americans go we often follow suit. Something no one wants.
We are bothered because Ukraine is a member of NATO, as are we.
Actually Ukraine isn't in nato.
..Although Ukraine is not a member of NATO and cannot rely on the military alliance’s collective security pact in the event of an attack, it has formed close relationships with several NATO members and has begun to receive military support from a number of countries within the alliance.
Bob,
//On 12 June 2020, Ukraine joined NATO's enhanced opportunity partner interoperability program.
Also:-
//11 Jan 2022 — In June 2017, the Ukrainian Parliament adopted legislation reinstating membership in NATO as a strategic foreign and security policy ...//
It's still not amember of nato though. Unless bbc as it wrong. It says today one of russias worries is nato expanding so much and russia wants to make sure ukraine doesn't join.
Anyway whatever...its a concern if russia starts expanding its empire again.does ukraone have assets like gas?
It has gas Bob but apparently not enough:-
//Despite its own production of natural gas Ukraine still had to import about 80% of its natural gas needs in 1999. ..//
Two words. Gas pipelines
But we should be bothered because America will retaliate, and there is the potential for rapid escalation. I think the plot to parachute in a Kremlin friendly leader who would then invite Russia to 'help maintain order' was far more likely. I think it's how Belarus operates
Some of the Russian pipelines cross ukraine
// where the Americans go we often follow suit. Something no one wants.//

er-er ( sound of craziness klaxon) - I can think of TWO persons wanting it - to wit since it is AB - The Americans and our leaders

Very popular in the Land of the Free actually - Bliar was lauded for his support of crazy George ( yo Blair etc) - even when the Bliar was mired in difficulties his lies created

but hey it all ended happily - Bliar is now Very Rich
Utter stupidity - an armed conflict will profit no-one (except maybe the arms suppliers!).
Firstly because Johnson cant be trusted not to take us to war to detract from his problems, secondly the Dems are in power in the USA and they live a good war.

Apart from that there is the gas/power thing. The green lobby has played right into Russia and China's hands. The net zero rubbish has meant we are becoming dependant on both nations for power and manufacturing meaning they can do pretty much what they like.

And then there are the money markets. A few dips yesterday so watch out for your pension value dropping.
Heaven forbid that this escalates into an armed conflict.
and a few more words
and they have done it before

cut off the gas - - that was why 10 or so y ago Nuclear power which was very bad became overnight very good - you doan remember?

Russia cut off Ukrainian gas - and shouted in satisfaction - "Look at that!" - and we all thought Christ the 30y ( fall of Berlin wall to 2010 ) of behaving like human beings is over.....we beat our ploughshares back into shields ....

and so it has occurred

Wd the Russian people prefer televisions to AK47s - we think so but no one has asked them
ymb//Firstly because Johnson cant be trusted not to take us to war to detract from his problems//
Absolute tosh.
// The green lobby has played right into Russia and China's hands.//
hmm yeah
we are only green when Tovarich Putin says "da"

bit of Russian there on a cold morning
doing a war to take minds off domestic problems at home
has been done before

( argentine falklands )

//ymb//Firstly because Johnson cant be trusted not to take us to war to detract from his problems//
Absolute tosh.//

You have far more trust in Politicians than I then Danny. He wouldn't be the first nor the last.
