cold fjord (826450) writes "News.com.au reports, "This morning, Prime Minister Tony Abbott labelled Russia’s escalating and “open” invasion into Ukraine as “war”. But he was not only person using fighting words. ... on Friday, Vladimir Putin’s nuclear threat was simple. “I want to remind you that Russia is one of the most powerful nuclear nations. This is a reality, not just words.” It’s the first time in more than 25 years that Moscow has raised the spectre of nuclear war. The difference this time is that its tanks are already pouring over its western borders. “A great war arrived at our doorstep, the likes of which Europe has not seen since World War II,” Ukraine’s Defence Minister Valeriy Geletey wrote ... warning of “tens of thousands of deaths”. Putin appears to agree. Italian newspaper La Repubblica reports Putin has told the outgoing European Commission President ... : “If I want, I take Kiev in two weeks.” " — CNN reports, "The British government source told CNN on Friday that Russia has moved 4,000 to 5,000 military personnel — a figure far higher than one U.S. official's earlier claim of 1,000 troops. The soldiers are aligned in "formed units" and fighting around Luhansk and Donetsk.... And they may soon have company: Some 20,000 troops are on border and "more may be on the way," ..." — Newsweek reports, "Russia Has Threatened Nuclear Attack, Says Ukraine Defence Minister""

  • This should have been sorted out before Russia invaded Crimea. It should have been sorted after Russia invaded Crimea. If it isn't sorted out now by a shitload of countries not only saying you have to leave Ukraine and Crimea but that we are moving our troops in and if you escalate this any more we are not going to talk, we are going to nuke you and hope for the best.

    Look, I'm a pacifist, but If the West is going to play the nuclear warfare game then it has to play it all the way till the end.

    Sorry folks

      Sorry folks, we started this.

      Huh?..

      Call an emergency U.N. meeting, throw Russia out of the U.N.

      With Russia itself wielding a veto, I don't think, the UN can be very useful in respect.

      I agree, that Putin must be called on this, but don't believe, we have the right man in the White House to do it. If we had one, Putin would not have dared the attacks in the first place...
