Good news is, molotovs are already flying into the windows of military registration and enlistment offices. Bad news is, this is probably where it ends.

This is looking like a Russian Vietnam. I don't think it's going to stop anytime soon.

This will be much worse than Vietnam. Vietnam wasn’t backed by the richest countries in the world, and the U.S. wasn’t sanctioned.

The U.S.S.R. wasn’t the richest country in the world…

Wait till the midterms. As deep in Russian pockets as so many GOP are, if Congress shifts watch them try to end our support of Ukraine.

Are you fucking serious or do you just not know history.

Vietnam was bankrolled by The Soviet motherfucking Union AND China. It had some serious backing.

The U.S. was richer than the U.S.S.R., and China was a poor country until the 1980s.
