In this four part series, Brad Johnson provides insight into the increasing threat Russia is to Ukraine. He explores why winning is so important for Putin and what it will cost Ukraine. Join us for a serious issue generally not covered in mainstream media yet still important to U.S. national security.

 

What people are saying:

Brad Johnson has a series of four brief videos on the situation in Ukraine. He’s nailed it.

Russia’s position is not posturing: it’s not Putin this-or-that; it’s Russian-Russians. They absolutely, positively believe that having NATO on their borders is an existential threat.

Look at the map. Look at the history of invasions of their territory over the last centuries.

If NATO or the MIC goes sneaky – like playing around in Transnistria, messing with headchoppers hither and yon – Ukraine will be zapped up to the Dnieper River. Non-negotiable. That’s majority Russian-speaking and that’s it. From Kiev on west, let it marinate in Cold War resentment.

If we get cute, if something happens that costs lots of Russian lives, we’re looking at all out war on mainland Europe. I hope there are enough grownups on our side to make this clear.

Brad doesn’t mention this, but it’s worth keeping in mind. The foreign ministers representing Russia sent to jaw-jaw in nice European hotels aren’t in the operational loop. It’s all fluff.

  1. Don’t be surprised if there are defectors, same goes for Taiwan. That’s the issue with joint sharing of U.S. tech with other countries. There’s always some defector or tranny homo waiting to give it all away for a quick buck or taking the silver or the lead—cartel style.

  2. Would be interesting to hear your comments 6-7 months later. I’m pretty sure a peace agreement could be negotiated with Russia keeping occupied Crimea and Ukraine and the west agreeing to no joining of Ukraine in NATO.

    Ludicrous to suggest we put nukes in Ukraine (it is nuclear by the way, not nucular).

    Sure Russia has a long border with NATO and it just got longer. Also unlikely sanctions get lifted on Russia without reparations. Putin’s blunder of a life time.
