I was watching this video about whether the Ukrainian military can hold up against the Russian military in a all out war. They do not believe the Ukraine would have a chance because of the advancement of the Russian military verses the Ukrainian military, but I think that the biggest problem would be numbers more so then technology. What do you think?

No need for a news report to understand that a poorly equipped and already badly fragmented country could stand against Russia. We are talking two different worlds here. Sure some sort of insurgency could keep up the fight but the real full conlfict war would probably be over in less than two weeks.

What is sad is they had to make a video to put that information out. The information is obvious because of the lack of funding Ukraine has for supporting a military, let alone actually maintaining it to the equipment level it would need to be for a war against a superpower.

The Ukraine doesn't have a chance against Russia maybe back in the day before Rush actually acquire nuclear weapons and became a actual real superpower. But now the Ukraine has actually no chance against Russia whatsoever to you. The only actual advantage they have is the fact that the majority of Russian citizens are on drugs simply because the Middle East keeps shoving heroine down their throat.

Well it is CNN. In fact most of the news channels keep pouring out simple stuff that anyone should know just because they need to keep the broadcast going 24/7.

Putin's words:

"'If I wanted, Russian troops could not only be in Kiev in two days, but in Riga, Vilnius, Tallinn, Warsaw or Bucharest, too

Ukraine's army is no match to Moscow's military might. Even if the West supplied Ukraine with all the arms they needed, it would take a very short time for Russia to "neutralize" the poorly-trained Ukrainian army [which might in its ranks have Russian sympathizers whose loyalties might shift].

Everyone knows it's Ukraine's loss. That's why America is going ballistic, being unable to fully help the country even through NATO networks. Technology, resources, military might, research and development, labor force, twisted ideology, strong ethnocentric motive and an iron-fisted leader - Russia has all the advantage.

I think another factor that is making it harder for the Ukraine to fight back is also the problem of Chernobyle. All their resources and money is going into building a containment over the nuclear reactor there. It is a large scale project that they really can't hold off on.

Here is more information on this project.


With this necessary project underway, there is no way that they can get the funds needed to build and support a large enough military to defend themselves. I personally believe that the US and UK should send their troops over to stop Russia from over taking the Ukraine.

Ukraine is in a bad spot. It's a part of the EU nor the NATO. NATO and EU could help if they wanted to, but they don't. Now, if Russia invades a Baltic country, take Estonia for example, now that ought to be interesting.

NATO already had other obligations when the Ukraine conflict erupted. So the timing was off. The war on terror was still in full swing when Putin decided to meddle in Ukraine's affairs and caused trouble for the country.

That is the biggest issue. If they were able to join the EU or NATO then they would have protection and Russia would not mess with them, but when they try to join... Russia intervenes. That is what started this whole mess in the first place. They were trying to join or at least that is what I am gathering from all the reports.

By themselves? Not really. That's why they are advocating a very strong push for international support, because they have a greater chance of finding a favorable solution diplomatically and with international intervention.

Yes, they did try to join the EU. But when Russia intervened the EU just left Ukraine to fend on its own. It was an awful thing that the EU did.

Not by choice. You have to understand... there is thing called politics. Politics prevents many countries from doing many things they would want to do. To get involved could be a violation that could cause serious issues and consequences, so they may not be able to get involved.
