WW3? 5 Months, 1 Week ago  
Lots of pages on ins and outs of russia/trump/corbyn etc etc..

Shall we consider the only question currently worth asking: did WW3 start this week; will this be an archduke ferdinand point in history- if anyone is around to write it?

No - its won't be.

The Russians will huff and puff but in the end they will do exactly what they did when their last Middle East puppet (Saddam) was attacked - stand back and do nothing !

Hope you are right itk but there comes a point where ill judged bellicose statements mean these titanic egos cant be seen to loose face - like 2 blokes in a pub who dont really to fight but cant be seen to lose status...

Bit like when you and Hedda get into a spat on here 😁!

It's strange how a report published earlier this year stating that five children a day have been killed or injured in Yemen since March 2015, didn't provoke a similarly highly charged response from Western leaders.

as usual ITK..for some really odd reason..totally under estimates how clever Vladimir Putin is.

People do it all the time. The Nazis did. (they also under estimate the Chinese)..years ahead of the West in manipulation.

Believe me I know from personal experience..a Russian Granny who ruled the roost.OK she liked a drink (or ten) and was possibly quite mad (I could understand Russian until she died and now I find it quite difficult even at the age of 39) but she ran rings around all other family members who were not Russian.

Sadly ITK actually thinks 2 British politicians are on the ball..,Theresa May and Boris "Boofhead" Johnson.

God give me strength.

That proves MY point !

Hedda (who used to use the name Veritas) was humiliated so often by me that he had to change his name and pretend to be someone else !

Assad is already "on the run" and hiding his aircraft etc
The Russians are in a panic - they did not expect this response (they totally mis-read Trump).
Trump is also a man who does not like to lose.

Russia is bankrupt - and most of its people on the breadline.
How would it benefit them if they got into a fight (even if they won, which is highly unlikely)?

They will do what they did in Iraq ... stand aside .... and look for the next "weak" target.

Hedda my apologies that an intended throw away and light hearted comment re "spats" between you and itk has led to itk likening you to Vladimir Putin...!

Itk...if you are placing your trust in the future absence of war in what you infer from hedda allegedly altering his posting name and not engaging in verbal nuclear tit for tat.... I suggest you are taking interchanges on here a tad seriously?

I tend to think that In The Know has read this right again.

Russia has only attacked "soft" targets like Crimea and Ukraine; they will back away if they meet anyone capable and willing to stand up to them.

I am sorry to be doing the Miss Jean Brodie thing again, but humiliating someone is nothing to boast about!

Early days itk early days; the Russian bear is an enigmatic and unpredictable beast - the question I first posed is yet to be answered by a long way...

This attack was much smaller than the Russians were expecting - which is why they have been in a panic for the last few days hiding everything from ships to tanks away !

Trump has made it clear - if they want more, they can have it !

You won't hear another peep out of them (but of course they will bleat on and on to their home audience to save face).
