Anyway, I am waiting for the real story, not the one being pushed in my face.

Arms manufacturers will be delighted with the prospect of a new arms race.

No talk yet about USA being held accountable for supporting the murderous Israeli forces in the way they want to hold Putin to account for supporting his local difficulty. Just listened to the British Foreign Secretay who could not bring himself to say that what Israel is doing is disproportionate

Looks like you’ve taken your own thread off topic to satisfy your political agenda

As you said immac it is probably all a smoke screen to divert from the real issues.
I agree that sanctions probably won’t achieve much. Sanctions take time to bite – and time isn’t something that Ukraine has.

But to suggest that Ukraine isn’t a ‘real issue’ is absurd – this is a European war FGS! Sure Israel, Syria etc are important but the outcome won’t impact on Europe to anything like the same extent.
