Looks like last week the public tracking data of two British Naval ships was manipulated and faked off the coast of Crimea - showing that the British ships traveled to and docked in Sevastopol, even though they were sitting idle and docked in Odessa almost 200 miles away.


Now today, Russia stated that they fired warning shots at a British Destroyer that they claim entered their waters. British Navy says they were not fired on and were in the assigned corridor at the time.



Pretty clear that something fu*ky is going on here. Biden punked Putin last week, so now Putin is going after a lesser target. Time for Ukraine to be admitted to NATO.

Biden has been easier on Putin than Trump so far. It’s pretty comical Biden is considered a tough guy by you. I’m sure Putin was put in his place. You need to quit watching cnn like everyone else has in the country.

Yeah yeah yeah, "Biden Man Bad". Boring.
Proof is in the pudding scope. Biden has been weak with Russia so far. Personally I think Russia is overrated, I just think it’s funny how the media is hyping him up for being tough when that isn’t the case. I hope he is tough with the real threat which is China. He seems to be trending that way with China. I’ll give him credit there.

I absolutely think China is way more of a threat than Russia.

More $
More population
More resources

The only minus is less tech in things like hypersonic missiles

I agree Russia is more of an annoyance. Outside of nukes they are a paper tiger. Covid showed us how much China can bend us over.

LOL at this whole thread. Putin gives two shits less about Biden or Trump and their tough guy talk. Superpowers have very little in the way of leverage over one another so saber rattling is all they can do.

Putin gives two shits less about sanctions... And Trumps tough talk on China did nothing more than create a mini tariff war that cost all of us simple folk in the end. Farmers took the brunt of that and of course taxpayers bailed them out in the end.

Bottom line working together is and always will be our best option.

We have more of the shiny and nasty stuff than either. Neither of them want anything to do with a military confrontation. And thankfully neither do we. It's been this way since the Korean War.

Agree but I do not trust one word from either of those dictator communist run countries. I hope Putin dies pretty soon and maybe Russia can get some changes. Doubtful but there is zero chance until he is gone.

Agree with that. But Russia dies without their oil and grain exports. And we can shut those down in days if they initiated a conflict. We also sink their entire surface fleet within days (if not hours). The history of the Russian navy is similar to my short game in golf.

That bad? RollingLaugh

You would think Eastern Europe would get fed up with Russia fleecing them on natural gas and fuel prices and do something to get it elsewhere or produce it somehow. I know that is not a simple thing. That would =do a lot of damage to Russia and give the rest of the world more control of that regime to force change possibly. We still need Putin gone. How far down he has people in place to take over who knows.

And then never tried it. He literally would say that and be trashing Nancy and Chuck the next day in a tweet.
Yep.. Trump said a lot of shit..... That's what he did/does. Very rarely did he follow through with any of it, but boy did his followers eat that stuff up.
