    What do you think has been staged? This is live tv? War reporters are quite brave people with a history going back a few centuries Do you suggest that there are no bombs? Or only when they are there? Or People are hiding with their children in the underground just for some political point?

    As you say, Putin is nearly 70. Imo this makes him dangerous as he might not give a shit how this develops - reckless.

    Agree. He wants a "war" on his CV,on his legacy.

    To add further daffydd
    My grandad signed up to WWI as a young teenager . he was full of stories and used to chuckle about the many horrendous circumstances he found himself in (perhaps his way if dealing with it) but often used to end up saying ' what was that all about '

    I believe in history younger office holders start wars.

    Well it might prevent a larger conflict.

    Also the Russians are responding to an expansionist EU & Nato.

    It is in many ways a reversal of the Cuban missile crisis.

    Following on from his ridiculous attempt at squeezing his large frame into a fighter plane cockpit whilst smiling, Bojo has delivered a speech smattered at the end with Ukrainian expressions to the effect of 'we stand side by side with you"
    What a joke he is!

    JFK was securing American interests by thwarting a potential risk in Cuba from the USSR.

    Putin is securing Russian interests by thwarting a potential risk in Ukraine from Nato/Eu.

    In both cases the aggressor is the one interfering around the others territory.

    In both cases you'd expect the smaller nation to pay the price against their superpower neighbour.
