If due to any reason the diplomatic efforts fail, then in that situation he has the military power to undertake crisis management operations. It uses a collective eye system by which all independent member states can agree with you against an attack by any outside party. Also, all the members can cooperate with outside forces only.

How Powerful is Nato?

NATO is considered the most powerful alliance in the whole world. But an alliance is based on its 30 allied and their partner nations to support missions and operations. Through this alliance, all the employees work in a group to fulfill any purpose. But NATO does not have its own armed forces. But it has a permanent unified military command structure. by which civilians and the military of all member states work together.

There can be no army through NATO. But there are many benefits available because it includes the military capability of each member country of the coalition. Because all countries include some of the other armies. Such as tanks, fighter jets, submarines, etc. By which the cause of the Alliance helps a lot.

NATO has been bound by its military power since 1949, due to which today it has about 3.5 million soldiers, personnel and civilians, etc. Because of the alliance, all the members definitely contribute one way or the other. All NATO missions are handled by the ACO under the leadership of SACEUR. The Supreme Allied Commander Europe [SACEUR] coordinates all forces. After the completion of any mission or operation, all the forces return to their respective countries.

A terrible war is started by the NATO Alliance through covid-19. Because it is also building a field hospital for medical help for all the patients suffering from the corona virus. NATO is seen as number one for helping in any crisis or disaster happening all over the world. If any country participates in a NATO operation, all member countries cover all costs.

    • Let’s see how true that is the second Russian attacks a NATO country. Then we’ll see how fast Putin’s bullshit gets stuffed down this throat. Remember, there’s a lot of people in NATO countries tired of standing back while that jackass pretends his country is still a super power.

      • His country is a superpower that can Mano a Mano with your country and still hold its own, check facts before writing baseless comments.

        • Russia is very powerful, NATO is greater though, it would be a clash of the titans which is more the reason why they haven’t done anything to support Ukraine yet, if ever. No one wants it to become a Nuclear war which it would if, Putin decides that when he goes down then the rest of the world goes down too. That’s the only way Russia will win in a war with NATO.

          Reply
          • Yes and rumor has it that Putin has some type of terminal illness. If that is true, his selfish ass isn’t going to care about any of us. He’s just going to be thinking what the hell do I care if there’s a nuclear war. He will be dead so he won’t give a shit

          • Just two countries out of NATO stopped Hitler from taking over Russia and Hitler went right into Russia and the USA and British stopped Hitler from taking Russia so just think if there would have been 28 more countries helping then.

          • Putin is clearly not in touch with his senses to give no clear logic to invade a country and destroy and murder its people is clearly the actions of a madman or a soul less demon! I know that steps have been.taken such as sanctions which have had some effect on Russia but there must be a line drawn in the sand to which Nato will not tolerate much more of Russias brutalty against a country who simply wants peace and freedom how much more must the endure until the decision is made that enough is enough

          • Ezekiel 39
            Says he will be slay when he reach Israel.
            Putin’s goal is Israel not Ukraine.Putin just using Ukraine as his first step to pave way to Europe then to Israel but he can not invade Israel and its oil.It will take a couple of years for Putin to get to Israel.Putin is already doomed even how powerful he is because Satan’s power is limited.Devil’s general ha?

          • It’s a bloody sin that NATO doesn’t help a country that’s being invaded for know apparent reason other then to kill, exterminate men , women and for gods sakes little children with bombs into civilian homes. That’s no different then marching Jews to gas chambers. Help this country because it Putin takes over Ukraine he will threaten nukes to take over the next country.

          • LOL!!!

            Get serious!

            One country, Ukraine, is kicking his arse, imagine 30 NATO countries facing off with him! He will be bitch slapped worse than Rock at the Oscars!

          • NATO sent billions of dollars of weapons and money to Ukraine for years, training ukrainian soldiers on tactics and operating their weapons even before the war. If this is called ‘did nothing to help’ what is? Obviously lots of people do not read news and least of all no knowledge of history culminating to this senseless war. If there is no NATA, Yugoslavia and middle east would not be dismembered or destroyed. What about the billions of dollars NATO robbed under pretence of sanctions? I would like to see this money returned to the Afghanistan people. The west makes their fortune by stealing other peoples money using their dirty trick like sanction. Well I suppose America needs the money to address their inflation, and make huge profit by buying more Russia oil since February
            then selling at 5-10 times back to Europe. How ludicrous! Wake up people!

          • Karen McCray, yes that is true. He has cancer/a tumor and just went under the knife for it not long ago.

          • 100%

            The US alone stomps Russia, especially after the Ukraine debacle.

            The other NATO allies, together, without the US would still stomp Russia.

            Vlad no longer seems to fear using nukes, though.

            That’s the problem. He knows Biden won’t ensure MAD like JFK did.

            Putin knows he can get away with this, thanks to weakness the West is showing by not standing up.

            Conventionally, this could be ended in days, warfare wise, while gaining a strong ally.

            Politicians are the problem. Specifically Biden.

          • There will be no ‘conventional war’ it will be a war of technology.
            Although looking at the mess Russia has made of attacking Ukraine, they aren’t very competent at it anyway.

          • The only country to get any money will be Ukraine so the can rebuild their country. Afghanistan is the one who started the war with US did you forgot 9/11 bombing.

          • I respect Germany slot ,there are warlord ,if not because of the United States USSR was not a match for Germany because there where both fighting in many frontline ,German are conqueror,is not for the sign of treaty place on Germany even Russia is not a match for is atomic weapons, Germany is not your mate or the United States please ready history before you speak,for your tomorrow we gave our today remember the nation’s that fought for peace ,and honour the father’s that fought for your tomorrow ,I leave peace with u here amen

          • I totally agree SWG, Putin army is no match for US army let alone NATO, judging by its failures in its current conflict with Ukraine. Even the French or British army alone can be able to deal with Putin’s civilian molesters in a swift special military operation and prompt fascist Putin to threaten nukes which he clearly knows will lead to total destruction of everything including his “motherland”.

        • He can barely take over a country that didn’t have many cutting edge military technologies. If Russia went against a true world power, their only weapon that would be any fear to the rest of the world would be their nuclear weapons. Other than that, Russia would lose.

          Reply
          • Exactly.

            A single squadron of F-22’s would remove Russia’s entire air support regarding Ukraine. Follow it with F-35’s and A-10’s to deal with the rest = game over.

            This is what should have happened prior to the invasion, which everyone was well aware would happen. No-Fly should have been set up weeks ago to avoid all of this before it even started.

            In a direct conventional conflict, the US would easily defeat Russian forces. If they became fully involved directly now, Russian forces in Ukraine would be annihilated within days. That won’t happen, though.

            Point is, the US alone could accomplish this. NATO as a whole could remove Russia’s military from the planet in short order.

            Putin and his trigger finger on the nuke button is the issue.

            NATO has nukes too, though. Not sure what happened to MAD and why that philosophy isn’t being enforced right now.

          • You must be talking about Afghanistan and Russia or the USA couldn’t fully stop war there they were split up and just about no country has ever defeated the Afghans.

          • I agree. Also I believe that there is a way to clear the skies and create a humanitarian corridor.

          • Russia is a Third World country with nukes. Its army has proven ineffective in combat. Only their sheer numbers makeup for their incompetence. If Russia wants respect, they need to earn it. Putin has forgotten that one key lesson, respect is earned, not given. Russia will be a pariah state for generations. And deservedly so.

          • Putin alone could give an order to use nuclear weapons, but would his military leaders follow his orders? This decision alone would start a coup. I dont think his own people want MAD. This is the end game. Are the Russian people ready for that?

          • Thank the Clinton’s for selling our plutonium and making it possible for Russia to have these weapons of mass destruction

        • Adolf Hitler’s Germany was a superpower, but could not hold its own against NATO. Check your history before writing baseless comments.

          Reply
          • 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣 On your point about telling someone to ‘check their history before making baseless comments’ Adolf Hitler’s Germany was not a superpower because that concept was determined by possessing nuclear weapons which Germany never had. But yes you’re correct that Germany ‘could not hold its own against NATO’ but it would have been extraordinary if it could. That’s because NATO didn’t exist and wasn’t formed until 1949 and as an expert like you knows Germany were defeated in 1945. What was that about checking your history before making baseless comments? Priceless! You muppet!

          • NATO didn’t exist during WW2. It formed in 1949. Check your history John. They formed NATO because of WW2.

          • Wait- what? I WISH NATO had have existed during World War Two . I was raised in England during that time , Europe was being annihilated whilst America and the rest of the world refused to intervene – until Japan decided to attack Pearl Harbor when A Japanese general Isoroku Yamamoto quoted. “We have awakened a sleeping giant”America became involved and the rest is historyI hope we are not sleeping again, God knows Our great country along with the rest of NATO is doing as much as they can without breaking any of the ‘rules’I wish we could rate this as a humanitarian crises rather than a political one, some times I think it’s time to cross the red line. It’s not a matter of if but when Putin will decide to take on America as I think they did during our last election and got away with , as with many other crimes, nothing sticks to him – sound like another president we all know.Too bad we can’t swear Ukraine into NATO now . I agree that not wanting to stir up a hornet’s nest with Russia is a good reason for not being in a hurry to let them join but if Russia wins this war , Putin will have proved he’s unstoppable . It’s a sticky wicket , we’re Dammed if we do and Dammed if we don’t

          • Uhhm there was no NATO until 1949, and barely 2 members of NATO even had an appreciable military, up until the 1950s. VE day (When Nazi Germany surrendered) was in 1945 so you are only totally way off base by 4 years. Belgium joined NATO in 1949. They were far from any kind of a military power. It was pretty much the USA & Great Britain. France had to rebuild its military just like Belgium did.

          • Nato wasn’t around during hitters reign, nato came along in 1949 after the second World war

          • NATO wasn’t formed until 1949 you jackass, I think check YOUR facts before writing BASELESS comments

          • NATO wasn’t formed until 1949 you jackass, I think check YOUR facts before writing BASELESS comments

          • You are not making sense what is the correlation between Germany and NATO. NATO was formed after the was please check your facts before commenting Russia contributed majorly towards the defeat of the NAZIs.

          • What I don’t understand is we have all these hacker groups, can they not hack into Russian computers and specifically hold the Russians nuclear weapons hostage?? Like prevent Putin from using them?? I don’t know really, but they seem to be able to stop everything else from working.

          • NATO wasn’t formed until AFTER WWIi, hence Germany and Japan were defeated in 1945, NATO wasn’t formed until 1949. Know your history!

          • Talk about checking history, look in the mirror. NATO did NOT exist when Hitler was in power.

          • You need to check your history. Nato was not formed untill ww2 had finished. Nato was formed in 1949

          • All i say is that clearly no one has learned from covid it taught the world to stick together, to have each others backs. Some countries are forgetting that peace is an option, Violence is never the answer. What is the point of war. To gain what power. The only thing that is happening around the world is murder of innocent people. Why do we need this. There are people suffering physically and mentally. People with anxiety and depression. People with slit throats and bullet holes in them. This is not something anyone shouldn’t take seriously. This is life and you only get one. The world should be one no mater what, and if people think that it’s ok for others to suffer then God save us. We must be united as one.

            Thank you.

            God save us all.

        • A superpower? The Russian army hasn’t progressed very well against a country Putin thought he would overrun in 2 days. Your little Mano is throwing a little boy fit because his second rate army is moving like a snail.

          • They move slowly trying to avoid as many civilian casualties as possible Negotiating safe corridors for civilians to move out. It takes time to coordinate.

          • It is time to cross the Red Line. What do people think? Appease Putin and he’ll behave? Why are we ruled by fear? Where is our strength-our backbone- our integrity? It’s shameful we don’t cooperate with Polish mig plan. Shameful that we as a country didn’t bolster Ukraine a year, 2 years ago. This was a not an overnight threat. It is premeditated murder by a reincarnated lying dictator whose own military shoot their own wounded because they slow down the evil. We are mistaken to do nothing. We will pay a much higher price the longer innocent people are mowed down like grass with a mower. It’s disgusting. It’s the heaviest of weight. I am a 63 yr old woman. I would carry a gun and book a flight if it were at all possible.
            It is time to cross the Red Line.

          • If only The World could encourage Russian citizens to all stand up and overturn their government before it’s too late and their is no more World

          • @Superman have you not seen the deaths. The Russians are hitting civilian areas don’t you watch the news man.

        • Wrong. He’s desperately trying to get the Soviet Union back together before he literally has nothing left. He’s scrambling because he’s insecure about the fact that Russia is not the leader of the gang of bullies once known as the Soviet union. Not a super power and he knows it. All he has on his side is nuclear power, but the US outnumbers his country in general population, military population, and nuclear weapons. Also, NATO alliance would destroy him in a heartbeat if he crossed them. Why are you so certain that Russia is the strongest country? They definitely aren’t.

          • Look around guys, the BIGGEST BULLy is the US. We have invaded and bombed more countries than all the others We have manipulated government takeovers to OUR advantage. All to the advantage of the Elite and disadvantage of the US working class.

          • I agree!!!!

            Mr. Johnson… if you hate our country so much.. why don’t you just leave? For the sake of us all, please do. You should be grateful that you do not have to live in fear, because you know you will always be protected. The US has only done those things when necessary. Sure they bombed Japan. Do you know what Americans encountered at the hands of the Japanese?!?! They had to do SOMETHING to make Japan surrender. And guess what? They sure as hell did. 😊

          • An SU-35 (Russia’s top jet) was just taken down by a hand held surface to air rocket. Think about the US technology !! Just saying Dude !! Lol

          • CORRECT!! Russia is not Super power but super paranoia I mean look at those recruited very young boys Russians soldiers that they don’t have any idea they thrown into Ukraine and also those chenchen assassins from Chenya?just target Zelensky because in order to remove nazi regime and demilitarized Ukraine oh!what a bull sh….t in Putin mind and brainwashing Russians people to support him.
            Except that Marina tv news anchor stood up against war.

            THE 🤡 PARANOIA OF RUSSIA And is already doomed not only because of what he’s done in Ukraine.His brutal bloody destruction in cities in Ukraine 🇺🇦 that is a proof Putin was a murderer.
            Ukraine people too much suffering of what Putin done.
            Even his fellow Russians that did not agree his leadership had been put to prison,poison, then cover up.Like those Russians athletes like the one who moved to Ukraine with his girlfriend that guy was murdered
            in Ukraine.
            After all of what he’s wicked deed like people victim of genocide he still lied,denied then projected and blame shifting saying stage by Ukraine.

            Soviet Union will never stand again.

          • Agreed. Also, Russia has basically been beat by everyone they’ve gone up against throughout history.

          • Actually, I believe that Vlad the Evil has more nuclear weapons than the US. The tragedy is that the Ukraine gave up its nuclear arsenal when the USSR broke up, with the promise of Russia, the UK and the US to protect it. So much for broken promises. And Russia took the nuclear weapons back to Mother Russia.

          • I fully agree with your comments on Putin’s intentions but as far as I know Russia has more nuclear warheads than America ( not more than NATO combined ) but not much different. Also although less population there would probably be a call up and the west or NATO will be full of conscientious objectors , whereas russian men would gladly ? Join up or be shot . Also it depends on a countries ability to intercept or amount of fallout shelters , if they take ukrain I believe there’s a load there.biden seems a bit weak.

        • Ok Russian bot

          Russia is literally failing. Check YOUR facts before writing baseless comments. The ruble is take dumpster dives the economy in Russia is horrible. The only thing Russia can do ok with is the military and they’re getting their asses kicked by Ukrainians as we speak🤦‍♀️But keep believing Russia is anything special🤦‍♀️

          Reply
          • The only baseless comment is that Russia is still a super power. It hasn’t been a global power since the soviet union collapsed. It has the 10th largest economy in the world and the 4th largest military budget. Barely ahead of Saudi Arabia. And absolutely dwarfed by the United States by Ten times over(778 Billion to 60 Billion). The one thing it does have is a very large nuclear arsenal it uses to scare the West with the threat of nuclear war hanging ever-present in the background. I think you need to get your facts straight Bud.

          • I fear that Russia is entering a new phase of this war that will be more destructive and brutal. As much as I would love to see the Russians being driven out I think this war ultimately only has one ending.
            I’m also not sure how smart imploding the russian economy is either. Besides the fact that we are punishing everyday Russians for the behavior of one man, a Russian state in chaos with a collapsed economy and loose nukes is a recipe for disaster. Hitting them so hard economically might be thirst quenching but no one seems to be asking about possible unintended consequences of doing this.

          • NATO are that scared of putin they’re putting sanctions on Russia that are having serious effects on the rest of the world. Putin is laughing his head off

          • I know NATO wasn’t formed until 1949 did you all not read well I said just two countries out of NATO took on actually Hitler and Japan at the same time what if there would have been 28 more present with them can’t you understand ?

          • Agreed!!! There is alot of non fact based comments on here, yours is one of the more intelligent ones! For those Ignorant of facts: The U.S. Is the Largest Superpower globally, it has a huge lead by the most important measures of national power. China is the only other country that comes close, but the U.S. still has 3X China’s wealth and 5X its military capabilities. That is factual!!! It would likely take decades for China to close that gap.

        • Lol his so powerful his still hasn’t even token over a tiny country like Ukraine very very power they are lol the only defense he has is nukes he can’t match ground or air his weak it’s that simple only reason no one takes it farther is nuke war hurts everyone else for a long time Nato has some of the most powerful countries Russian is nowhere near that powerful to take on all they would definitely need help and the facts say it all they can’t even take over Ukraine yet let alone stand up to anyone else eventually they will but that doesn’t prove anything he don’t want to go military to military his so scared his threats are only nukes he knows he can’t match unless he uses something that will destroy everything pretty weak move

          • As an Indian i stand with Russia and Russian army . I have no sympathy for the Ukraine and Ukrainian peoples . m the biggest fan of Vladimir Putin .

          • Akhilesh Sharma Indian wow. Where did this one come from the jungle. Does he not watch the news. He’s happy Russian is invaded a sovereign nation, killed innocent civilians, blew up houses, for what so it could forcefully annex an independent nation.

            Simple a brain wash.

        • You must not be paying attention because while Russia is no doubt a formidable foe, the way Putin’s invasion of Ukraine is going reveals Russia is far more vulnerable than Putin would like others to believe. He is struggling to take over key cities, his behavior has grown increasingly erratic, he has resorted to killing innocent civilians & recently he agreed to a temporary cease fire just to turn around & continue his attack. Those are not the actions of someone dominating a war nor are they the actions of someone who could take on the combined military power of 30 countries. The reluctance mostly stems from the amount of nuclear weapons he has access to more than anything else, no one wants a nuclear war. Use common sense.

          • Akhilesh Sharma India, you stand for Russia? Maybe you and your country will be the next in line. You better watch your back cause you will be the next. Maybe Putin will invade India too. Burn you down to hell.

          • The reason Putin is not using his nuclear weapons is that if they perform like his military, he could end up taking out one of his own cities by mistake, or a location that wasn’t actually the target. Imagine the KAOS
            if that happens.

        • Putin is mad…he thinks he can rule the world and he can’t. The sooner he goes or gets done for war crimes the better.

        • They obviously couldn’t organise a puss up in a brewery. The Russian army’s performance against the Ukraine is pathetic. Their logistics and command and control shows NATO that they don’t need to fear Russia in any ground war.

          • Exactly said and the civilians are the targets of the big super power and it’s crazy people on here don’t agree with others they try to bully them calling them names and ridicule them when it’s their own stupidity for not understanding the comments and should give people respect.

          • I believe Russia is not the only country with nuclear weapons , if putting there to us nuclear weapons , other countries will also use their nuclear weapons against Russia. Secondly other Russian authorities will be against puttin if he want to use nuclear weapons. Thirdly I believe putting will never think of destroying the world his fighting rule over..

          • The problem now is that Putin’s military is out of control. There is not a chance he would call them back as then his whole country would ask why did we invade the Ukraine in the first place. Who in their right mind would want the Ukraine now, in the condition it’s now in. The senseless acts by the Russian military are the acts of a rogue, out of control military, and not even Putin himself could reel them in and save face. He would look like an idiot in front of his own people.

          • And why for petes sake hasnt some industrialist gabillionaire dropped millions and millions of paper leaflets from space to blanket Russians with info and photos. Ya it’s rudimentary but the thing Putin fears most is his humiliation by his own citizens. He’d have to have ordinary citizens cleaning them up. Once awoken the russian people will take him out. someone get on Elon. The trees will excuse us.

        • The only power Putin has is out of his rectum. He is a pathetic midget murderer. His IQ equals his stature. 5-7…hahaha.

        • Russia’s military is a scam. They bought a bunch of jets with no money left to train pilots. They can barely take Ukraine and would never make it past Poland, even without NATO. All Putin has is nuclear.

          Reply
          • “It’s not the dog in the fight … but the fight in the dog.” Russia need not move into the Ukraine cities to win. It can simply keep smashing cities, fighters and civilians with its distant weaponry. Russia doesn’t want cities–only the land–and to make serfs of the Ukrainians. While NATO cringes in the wings observing genocide.

        • Yes your right. That is why the Russians are getting their asses kick med by a country that has 1/10th the military power. Oh, let us not forget how many former Warsaw Pact countries and even former Soviet republics. Even the city the Warsaw Pact is named after is now in a NATO country. I suggest sir that you check your facts 🤪. Oh, yeah, you get your facts from the Putin propaganda machine. How predictable and pathetic at the same time. How many Russian soldiers have been killed, wounded or have even deserted? Oh yeah, you have your facts straight 🤪

          • to all u sooooo smart whatever’s, seems most of u have to tell everyone else to get their facts straight or similar to that. bunch of hot air

          • I find it very sad that in the same way that ordinary Germans thought they were on the side of good until the allies liberated the camps and news filtered out – ordinary Russians will not find out what their leaders have been doing until Putin is dead, overthrown or imprisoned. They have a horrible shock awaiting them when they find out the truth. He is such a vain man that he would probably be prepared for an all out nuclear war in the hope that everything would be destroyed and his lies/megalomania would never come to light. Maybe archaeologists in 5000 years will discover ‘the truth’ but it will come out eventually.

        • No, after seeing the Russian army in the Ukraine. It is very apparently clear, the Russian army has been hyped up far beyond their effectiveness. Shitty leadership, shitty training, shitty tactics, shitty equipment, shitty logistics. Zero experience in a modern war with properly equipped enemies. They are running low on smart weapons as their munitions are 90% dumb and 10% smart. NATO would win in hours maybe a day or 2 tops. Russia’s on space minister did a report and his own and figures the west would destroy Russia. Army in 6 hours.

          • I agree Linda. If the US/Nato closed Ukrainian airspace, we would be obligated to shoot down any Russian plane that entered the airspace. Making us directly involved in the war. No doubt, Russia would retaliate. Sure, the US could demolish Russia, but Russia has a couple friends. China, North Korea, Pakistan, Iran, maybe India would come to Russia’s defense. Mutually Assured Destruction for sure!

          • Russia isn’t “having a hard time” with Ukraine though. That’s what mainstream media is trying to make it look like.

        • They’re not doing too well, mano a mano with Ukraine, a country of 1/4 their size and 1/10 their military. The Russians are using outdated equipment and military tactics that would be considered outdated in World War I! It’s nothing personal. We did the same thing to Iraq after they invaded Kuwait. Nobody gets away with it!

Life is given to us to enjoy, help others (so they can enjoy), and maybe if Putin understands that it’s not about taking land and expanding his delusional “return the mother land”. Focus on tourism, peace, Russia was in the bottom of my top 10 to visit, that will never happen unless Putin is gone and a new peaceful regime is in power. Powerful countries?

And the biggest failure of all a leader who believes all the guff his propaganda machine is putting out.

Russian leaders need to understand that the free world is never going to allow Russia to conquer another country ever again. It’s not right to invade and take over other countries and a lot of the world is waking up to that fact. You are taking up for a loser and he’s going to get what’s coming to him. And if he launches one nuke he will be destroyed by the NATO countries quickly. There will not be a Russia any more.

Your move, Putin! Oh, and you can keep the corpse. I’d have him stuffed and mounted. (Mounted by a male Russian bear).” You have to call his bluff and appeal to his sense of humor. You also have to let him know that he ain’t dealing with the three months late, always broke, & fresh out of ideas, Joe Biden. Joe Biden, the guy who had to plagiarize, lie, cheat & steal just to almost fail out of law school.

What else would stop Putin( who has publicly stated his desire for a return to the Soviet empire glory days) from invading smaller countries like Latvia or Estonia.

This what Putin is trying to resurrect which is ironic really as we can now see his economy in free fall.

        I just want to put this out there cause really this entire entire could’ve been avoided if SOMEONE in Ukraine would have been paying attention!!

        Ukraine has been “bullying” Russia’s devolving economy by having them pay high taxes to use their pipelines/railways to export natural gas. Ukraine’s southern island, Cremtia (not sure how to spell it), was overtaken by Russia. Ukraine cemented the only water system going to the island, gradually strangling that island’s citizens. In turn, Russia has to spend more money on preserving those people (keynote: the retaliation isn’t the issue here but the fact there’s now a Russian island beneath Ukraine). Ukrainian Government has ultimately FAILED to notice or acknowledge new pipelines being built to export Russia’s natural gas, effectively cutting off Ukraine’s chances to keep bleeding already-dying Russia dry. That was Ukraine only leverage. Ukraine’s biggest blunder that now has the paying the ultimate price was Ukraine doing ALL of this “bullying” while being under NO PROTECTION WHATSOEVER!!

        Russia was and still is playing the long game. If Ukraine would have joined NATO sooner or even at last minute, they wouldn’t have this situation on their hands. NATO helps out when their members are in a time of need. It seems like Ukraine was UNAWARE they sit between NATO and the USSR. You can’t sit between powerhouses and not think either one won’t eventually try to claim you for themselves. Ukraine has only ever been REACTIVE, not at all PROACTIVE! This is their downfall, and this is the result of their minimalistic efforts. This isn’t to shame or criticize Ukraine but to acknowledge where the blunder happened and their continuous naivety. The most any other power can do without inciting World War 3 is to offer refuge for Ukrainians and other refugees. Now we get videos of Ukrainians begging for NATO support when they can’t help you because you’re out of their jurisdiction! They (the Ukrainian government, not the people) have F’CKED themselves! If any NATO forces even ATTEMPT to touch you, it’ll be seen as an act of war. As of now, we can’t do much but offer our VERBAL support. Another thing I failed to mention earlier is this: As much as people say Ukraine has nothing left to lose, neither does Russia. With a dwindling population, plummetting fertility rate, and with the death rate being higher than the birth rate which causes the country’s population to drop by 1.1% every year, this is possibly Russia’s last chance to take any kind of action favorable to their country.

        If Ukraine had joined NATO, Russia more than likely would’ve started to fall more and more in less than two years. As a previous comment pointed out, Russia is not as big a powerhouse it once was, so they started a war with Ukraine in order to overall capitalize on Ukraine natural gas reverses (which Ukraine cant harvest due to lack of funding).This isnt only a power play; it’s an attempt to rebuild the nation and its economy (Russia’s). Ukraine waited too long. Russia got hungry. This war has more riding on it than most people think. Russia’s reasons are militaristic, economic, and patriotic. This is Russia’s last chance is something major. Ukraine helped Russia recognize the opportunity by not taking preventative measures. Now all Ukraine has are makeshift weapons and high morale. I do hope Ukraine makes it out of this war without too many casualties and drawbacks. But I also hope the Ukrainian government learns from its past mistakes and make the necessary changes it needs to keep its country and citizens afloat.

          But you are missing the whole point. In 2014 US spent millions of dollars to topple the Ukraine’s democratic Government. Why? Because they were Russian friendly. Of course America can’t stand someone friendly to Russia, China, Iran etc.
          Ukrain should never be a part of NATO that’s the agreement they have with Russia in 1991 and then Minsk agreement in 2014.
          Why is that no country Condem when America destroyed the country like Iraq Libia, Afghanistan etc. European countries are slave to America. They can’t even shit without America’s permission.

We need to act though we are fallible and shortsighted.

They never will be. The Russian military is way overrated. Tanks that were supposed to be feared were destroyed by U.S. tanks in the gulf war. Planes that were supposed to be on the level with the U.S. were destroyed before they hardly got off the ground. The third best army in the world surrendered so they wouldn’t be destroyed by the U.S. The U.S. is just one NATO country. Russia and its partners would be wiped out pretty quickly and they know it. They don’t want to start any you know what with NATO. If Ukraine is allowed to join in an emergency situation Russia will withdraw. Simple as that.

          • afghanistan? Cuba? (economy failing and they are a tiny island of very poor socialists) North Korea? (not been a real power since the end of the Korean war.) Japan is an American Alli! (wow were you off on that)

            russia is loosing on 1 the political front 2 the economic front (economy tanking) 3 the war is Not going well with well over 3000 dead (poor soldiers abandoned by officers and not supported by logistics, and why are they communicating in the clear with non encrypted communications? 4 Putin and any Nukes is the worry, he is not acting normal, and I don’t think even Russia can trust him to make good decisions!

        • So you don’t know it was Soviet red army that saved the world in 1945 by annihilating the Nazis?Two bombs that were dropped in Hiroshima and Nagasaki was not necessary because by that time Japan has already surrendered.Now Japan is a friend to United States.German is a friend to others Western countries and United States of America.Wonder shall never end

          • I think you’ll find the Red Army had a LOT of assistance in ‘saving the World’, as you put it. Without the Royal Navy supporting the Arctic convoys to re-supply Russia, Russia would have been starved out of the war. And that’s before we even consider the Allied offensives in the western front and the Pacific. The Red Army just got to Berlin first.

Biden is backing China and Russia all the way and so is Canada’s leaders. So who is Nato is willing to come forward to fight China, Russia, Canada and American. I despise Biden and his lying administration. He is leading the world down a path of destruction.

Please do not forget that Japan Bombed Pearl Harbor The US ask Japan to surrender they refused so the US dropped the first Bomb and the Us ask them again to surrender, again they refused so a second Bomb was dropped. What the US did then was take away their ability to do harm again. But we didn’t take their country we gave it back. Our country had a much better leader 1945. Biden intends to take freedom away from the people just like China and Russia.

      • Neighbors should help neighbors. Someone should have taken over the Ukraine air space and denied Russia from flying in it. NATO should be involved in destroying all Russian military and overthrow the country to disarm nukes. The US spent 14 trillion dollars and 20 years in Afghanistan and LOST THE WAR against a bunch of towel heads with no military! US military is total incompetence!

Over the last two decades, there have been no terrorist attacks on Allied soil from Afghanistan. It’s not to say it can’t happen again but it was a success to that degree and in the current world environment that’s should be a Thank YOU? Because you may possibly be alive because of it.

If Ukraine join Nato, basically everything on that regime will belong to EU and in that case Russia will feel a treat to be surrounded by the EU(NATO) nuclear weapons

          • omg why do not do a little research? ussr nuclear weapons were given back to russia in 1995 in exchange of promise to never attack ukraine and protect it in case of invasion. Another pact Russia betrayed, like Minsk agreements in 2015. also how can be russia surrounded by european countries? have you looked at a map? did you see how big is its territory?

          • Sorry……….the Ukraine gave up “ALL” the nuclear weapons that were in that country. In 1994, Ukraine agreed to destroy the weapons, and to join the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons.

      • Well said and too true. We all know that appeasement emboldened Hitler. People of the free world will not tolerate Putin. The only thing that should worry anyone is seeing the face of God.

        • They will… for many good reasons. First, no country in the world has the right to invade a free country. Secondly, by protecting Ukraine, they are protecting the rest of Europe, and the world. I believe Nato should have acted back in 2014. The consequences are another matter. We will all in some have to suffer them. In my lifetime, there was a situation similar to the present one, the Cold War in the 60’s. I was a child. Today I am a grandmother. Russia/Ukraine is a much deeper problem today to the world than the Cold War. We live in a much more complex and sophisticated world, still, men’s mentality is always hangry for power. This is one of the reasons Putin has invaded Ukraine; POWER!

          • No unfortunately it is not part of NATO. If it were Putin would never dare invade a NATO country as it would have all Nato countries against it. The minute Putin steps foot or a war plane flies into a NATO country they must and will simply have to respond and that will be the start of Workd War 3 which will be nuclear. That is what NATO is trying to prevent by helping Ukraine from the back scenes but not outright.

        • No way. It is against natos policy. The Ukraine is not a part of nato and therefore nato will not go to war with Russia for them. Nato has always been hesitant to letting the Ukraine join because of the the tension with Russia. They don’t want to stir the pot too much. Still they can not deny the Ukraine to join nato for that reason. But I’m pretty sure they’ll try to avoid having a war with Russia as much as they can. They probably won’t join the war until a nato country is attacked.

          Also others mentioned North Korea. They might have a lot of weapons but economically they aren’t stable. No way North Korea would be able to last long in a war. The fear of losing the control over all his brainwashed pupils will be too great.

Even the Russian soldiers had no idea what so ever they were going to war against Ukraine. They were told the were just doing drills. So many Russian solders have waved that white flag or been captured and they all say the same thing. They had no idea and do not want to fight their brothers. Ukrainians are being so good to them- feeding them, calling their families so they can speak to them. It is amazing how understanding and compassionate Ukranians have been to their Russian brothers.

I don’t know if a no-fly zone is the answer, but they had better do SOMETHING and do it fast. Putin has no fear of sanctions, even if they wreck Russia’s economy. He has a fixed agenda – restore the USSR – and won’t deviate from it.

We will NOT ENGAGE Russian forces or come to the aid of Ukraine forces being assaulted by Russian forces. We will just hole our line. However if Russian forces attack our line they will be showing the world they just want to eliminate Ukraine and under those circumstances we will retaliate. Now this force of a NON NATO country would be 30,000 strong with 10,000 US and 10,000 British military WEARING the uniform of this country with 10,000 of its own troops…there is more to this but no room.

If Putin is so mad as to seriously consider this then surely none of you can say this is right. The fact that he seems to think the rules are that he can just invade sovereign territory and no one is allowed to retaliate is ludicrous.

      • Thank you. Seems to be that your reply is the only one I’ve read that actually makes any sense, really. My two scents if I may, just to remind others of the importance of learning diverse histories, cultures, regions, religions and the like in preparation and understanding of politics and possibilities of war… 1. Ukraine is Russian land! It is factual all the way back to the late 800’s. 2. Kiev was the Mother of all Cities as well (please do look it up and teach yourselves) 3. Ukraine is a non NATO country and therefore is none of America and NATO’s business and assistance as such would be out of line with the stipulations of the treaty as should be attempting to covertly assist non NATO members/ countries as the US continues to do. 4. If Putin decided to only nuke the US the rest of NATO would fall apart as they are weaker even in unison without the assistance of the US. 5. Russia has faster nukes and more nukes than the US (that is also more than likely going off of old intel as US/ Russian relations have been breaking down for many, many years) 6. The US would be smart to know it’s place and hope that Putin does not continue this battle bc unless there is a huge miscalculation on his part, the possibility of taking out the US, therefore disbanding NATO as a whole will not fare well for what will be an entirely new geopolitical landscape (also, I am an American with children and would like it to stay that way). 7. I will not even touch on the economic fallout in this discussion as I am sure I have already lost everyone in this knowledge and explanation as it is. 8. Please educate yourselves ppl. I’m not sure when we all became so watered down in these areas, but the knowledge is literally at our fingertips and we still seem to be so ignorant. 9. To write Putin off as insane and comparable to Hitler is unwise as he is much scarier in that he is a patient, strategic and capable leader much more able of realizing some of what Hitler was trying to accomplish (Hitler was insane, delusional, literally and possibly very intoxicated as time went on) 10.

      Russia is a ‘wild card’ though and quite frankly, pretty scary due to their extensive nuclear arsenal. I believe countries would have already stepped in to fortify the Ukraine if not for this. No one wants to take any chances with the possibility of nuclear weaponry involved as no one ‘wins’.

But even Russia and China combined cannot pretend to hold a candle to the combined might of NATO. Attacking a NATO country would be suicide. This doesnt mean Putin wont do it tho.

    • If any Nato country is attacked then yes, all Nato countries will go to war with the attackers. If Russia attack a Nato country then Nato will go to war with Russia

    • Yes, any military attack against a NATO country is a attack against all of the NATO countries. All NATO countries are obligated to defend as if they were attacked.

    • Yes! If Russia decided to attack an Eastern European country that’s part of NATO, then WWIII will more than likely start. Russia fears democracy and fears NATO because it represents the protection of democracy.

    • Yes. An attack on one is an attack on all, at least in theory. An intentional Russian attack on Poland or any of the other NATO countries in the neighborhood could start WW 3.

    • I believe there’s different ways of getting involved not necessarily full on combat but supporting the fight with weapons medical assistance and $$ and probably a small troop depending on the numbers being fought “there are combat laws to follow

    • Yes that is what it means. If any one of NATO’s members come under attack, it is just as if every country comes under attack.

    • Yes. The “we all join forces” include ALL member 30 European nations which comprise NATO. An attack on one, is an attack on all.

    • Yes article 5 states if your attacked everybody joins together and defends some countries it might just be resources or money, and i dont believe its true if a country were to attack someone NATO would not be apart of it unless attacked first.

    • Yes. If one member get attacked all NATO members are at war against the attacker, at least in theory. Fun fact: Even Russia wanted to join NATO in early 2000s but was denied.

      Reply
    • That’s correct. If Russia attacks one Country in NATO all of the 30 members will attack Russia. That’s why president joe Biden has sent troops to Poland. To help Poland with the survivors of Ukraine. Also to make sure Russia doesn’t try to take over Poland as well. Just in case Putin doesn’t try to take over more then Ukraine.

    • If any country that is a member of nato is under attack, then yes. I think it has something to do with the article 5 being triggered.

      For the same reason why NATO is standing still, and not reacting to Russian invasion, Putin will not spread his advances beyond Ukraine. As this would mean WW3.

      Reply
    • Correct. Article 5 means any NATO member attacked by another country means all NATO countries must come to their defence. This is why Putin fears Ukraine joining NATO

      Reply
      • Putin does not fear the US because they will have the backing of China and India
        That’s why he has moved forward with the attack. Be ready for a world war 3

      • I say for NATO to emergently threaten to admit Ukraine if Putin/Russia doesn’t cease & desist- including any claim to any eastern province.

        Reply
    • Article 5 is a key pillar of the 1949 North Atlantic Treaty — also known as the Washington Treaty — and is based on the principle of collective defense. It means that an attack on one member of NATO is deemed to be an attack on all. Russian will never attack a NATO country and that is why Ukraine want to join

      Reply
    • Yes. And of course, the NATO members will use diplomatic means as the first option.
      However, now that Russia has invaded Ukraine, NATO forces are fortifying positions on NATO borders. The NATO countries are creating new positions along the borders of Russia. This is because the NATO allies are required to defend all NATO territory.
      Keep in mind, the NATO positions are defensive in nature despite propaganda from Russia and China staing otherwise.. NATO forces will not invade Russia and NATO positions would not be getting bolstered if Russia had not invaded Ukraine.
      In the end, yes, if Poland were to be invaded by Russia, NATO military force would meet Russian forces in defense of Poland.

      Reply
    • Yes, that is what it means. An attack on one NATO member country is considered an attack on all member countries and they are bound to an agreement to come to all come to the aid of the attacked country.

      • Ukraine is not in NATO so we don’t HAVE to go in to help. Other countries are being careful because, once they join in with the actual fighting, it could lead to nuclear war Russia versus the West.

      • For a disconcerting yet recent example of NATO’s Article 5 coming into play we can go back to 2001 with Al Qaeda’s 9-11 attack on the NATO member the United States. Not long after the attack, the US and NATO forces invaded Afghanistan because the Taliban, which then governed most of Afghanistan, had rejected US demands to turn over terrorist group Al Qaeda leaders who had planned the attacks from bases inside Afghanistan. Twenty years later in 2022, with hundreds of thousands of Afghanis, Americans, NATO member soldiers, and Al Qaeda’s leader dead, after more than one trillion dollars had been pumped into Afghanistan with much of it squandered by the American military and very little to show for (not including the immense profits certain American arms and logistical companies had amassed in Afghanistan), American and NATO forces finally withdrew after the Taliban pledged to cut ties with terrorist groups like Al Qaeda in Afghanistan, reduce violence and negotiate with the American-backed Afghan government.

        • As you state NATO Allies went into Afghanistan after the 9/11 terrorist attacks on the United States, to ensure that the country does not again become a safe haven for international terrorists to attack the homelands of NATO member countries. Over the last two decades, there have been no terrorist attacks on Allied soil from Afghanistan. It is not to say it can not happen again but to that degree it was a success and there will always be greed it’s our nature. Having said that. You may be alive because of it. We thank NATO forces for it’s service .

    • Yes , then world war 3 is imminent. For example Poland is a member state and it’s very close to Ukraine . if in the course of battle during the invasion that a Russian missile mistakenly enter Poland, it means Nato has been hit. America could come in with the support of other Nato members like Germany, England Canada etc..since it’s the world’s strongest and biggest alliance.
      The world is watching

    • My belief is that Putin ‘freaked out’ when he thought the Ukraine may become part of NATO. If you look at a map, you can see that European NATO alliances are surrounding Russia as it is. Should the Ukraine join too, well, Putin would see that as an imminent threat and clearly DID.

      As far as further invasion, beyond the Ukraine, I don’t see that happening because Putin knows he’s then dealing with NATO Alliances and the risk is simply too great.

      I’m confident Putin’s shadowed threats of using nukes is why other countries haven’t gotten directly involved in helping the Ukraine fight for their freedom; sending in the cavalry, so to speak.

    • NATO should invade Russia after it has most of their forces in the Ukraine and cut off it’s supply line. Destroy the roads. Separate the head of the bear from it’s body. And kill the Russian military. Or why can’t a missile be sent to evil leaders limos/train.

    • Putin did not lost his mind, he never had any other the KGB style totalitarianisms. If NATO and the world let them succeed with Ukraine they will go after other break away territories. Conventional Russian military is not a match for NATO, unfortunately when it comes to nuclear, they are ahead simply because of supersonic war heads. They will used them and that will lead to world wide nuclear war. China is watching closely for the outcome, they would like
      to take over Taiwan. And yes likelihood of escalation to nuclear conflict is very high.
      The world is sacrificing Ukrainians to learn the outcome of there policies.

    • Russia is a huge Country who are using nuclear weapons. They are trying to help as much as they can. Germany has shut off the biggest pipe line they had in Russia. The United States has cut off most of it money going to Russia and fuel. You have to be mindful that nato doesn’t want to get involved.

    • They are helping Ukraine even though Ukraine is not part of NATO but Ukraine is alliance to USA and if you check the table Russia is invading war with USA and not Ukraine because USA is trying all best to prevent the war and if Russia doesn’t stop then USA will have no other choice than to join hands with it other alliances countries like UK Canada, Germany, and others to fight Russia then in that case Russia also has supports from China, north Korea Syria and others which is leading to WW3.

    • If Russia invades a NATO country, an attack on one NATO country is an attack on all NATO countries. There are 30 countries in the NATO alliance so if for example Poland was attacked there should be support from every NATO member; Poland would not be fighting Russia alone…
