All I am saying is Russia for its size has been slapped in the face by many small countries

So was China.

But we are living in the modern world and need to deal with the reality of organised population sizes and military capacities and types of regimes.

Poland is in Nato and unless it attacks Russia is unlikely to be attacked itself.....The fact that we are talking about a Nato/Russia conflict exposures just how serious the situation is and why de-escalation and negotiation is so important.

The longer it goes on the more entrenched and intractable it becomes and calm heads and realistic calculation are our only real defence.

The politics of fear is a useful mechanism for controlling a society. Stoking fear of a situation or another country enables authorities to push the boundaries, whether that be by restricting freedoms so as to ‘protect’ us, spending taxes on specific projects that would otherwise fail to pass scrutiny or using unsavoury rhetoric.

 


hats off to palace, they were always gonna be louder, and hate to say it but they were impressive ALL bouncing and singing.

Yep, we have seen in recent years the old truism that fear wins over reason most times. There has been a huge effort put into dubious fear mongering towards the trustful non political normie. A restriction of alternative viewpoints. Imagine what it would be like without Twitter.
