Just to give you a hypothetical, we would respond by leading a NATO, a collective effort that would take out every Russian conventional force that we can see and identify on the battlefield in Ukraine and also in Crimea and every ship in the Black Sea," said Petraeus.

When asked whether the use of nuclear weapons by Russia would bring the US and its allies into the war, Petraeus said it would, though was cagey about whether nuclear radiation from an attack spreading to NATO states could be considered an attack on them, triggering NATO's Article 5, which obliges member states to defend each other.

"Perhaps you can make that case," he said. "The other case is that this is so horrific that there has to be a response — it cannot go unanswered."


I don't see either side backing down. Are we heading towards WW3?

    I saw that.

    One thing Blue MAGA progressive Swampcult snobs miss out on is that Fox has two very talented retired Four Star General that serve as Ukraine experts. They've been on this for some time.

    I know several folks (including both sons) that served in the theater when Petraeus was commander. Everyone liked him as a commander. He had clear, concise orders, would go out and meet units without micromanaging their commanders. He understands Arab/Muslim war and respects that. It's what got him in to the Ukraine theater. If he could give his two cents to any president, I would take it in a heartbeat.

    I think it was more "the end goal" would be for the US & NATO would be to decimate the entire Russian Army. The Idea of course, is to basically carpet bomb the Russian military wherever they may be (Turkey, although NATO, is buying technology and arms from Russia). We would first have to terminate their targeting systems and missiles in Russia, and work a deal with the Chinese, DPRK, and Iran (which is having issues of their own right now). After that, we launch very tactical non-nuclear strikes to free Ukraine, then move their military back in to Russia. Those that unconditionally surrender, we take alive and relatively unharmed. At some point, Vlad may be killed by his own people. When that happens, we see what the new government wants to do. If they want an unconditional surrender, fine. But we watch.

    IF China and Iran don't get involved, we "should" be okay.

    Everyone here understands I don't like pedojoe. I think he's worthless.

    The one thing I think he has done, to the dismay of many, is to give Ukraine everything he can to survive. I understand the teetering on re marking the jets and giving them to Ukraine. But the Poles stepped up and helped us on that. He has no official boots on the ground, like he said he would do.

    So far, he has kept to what he said he would do. Good job. This may just be "next phase." Good luck on this part of it. If it falls apart, you snatched the defeat from the jaws of victory. But so far, You're doing good.

    I don't think we are heading toward WWIII.

    If Putin drops a nuclear bomb Russia will become an even more of a pariah state than it is now. I don't see China or any other country eager to take sides with Russia in a global war. From what I've read, China is already losing patience with Putin and his debacle in Ukraine. Not to mention the Russian population isn't too happy with Putin.

    First, you trust the Chinese unconditionally. Wrong move. You need to get them to say it in public. Sometimes. Otherwise, they'll turn on you. Their goal is to destroy everyone but themselves. The Iranians are the Grand Joker in the equation. They fought against the UdSSR for a decade+. Are we the bigger threat to them? or is Russia? IF China can tweak this equation to make us go under, they have completed their manifesto. They Kill us. Biden already gave them rights in the first day in office to our electric grid. Prepare for that in the next year. IF you don't have solar, you will have no electricity.
