We have people who think a major pandemic is a hoax and also believe the Earth is flat

Is it time for a YBIG-style panic?
Is there anything to be said for another mass?

As long as it’s over by June and Ukraine win. 
I could agree with you but then we'd both be wrong.

Russian TV is talking about nuclear weapons being used on western countries if they intervene. The message is also that Putin has never accepted the outcome of the Cold War and Ukraine is just the start of his plans. Obviously partly propaganda but it is not all hot air either. If this kicks off and the EU are anti Russian on it then we can say goodbye to our foreign gas supplies!

There's certainly alot more to come from this. Can't blame the Russians, they took over crimea handy enough so can't see why they wouldn't keep pushing their luck. They'll take over the rest of the Ukraine while the west just sit back and look. 

You're right, I don't think it's all hot air either

If it happens (which experts say is now highly likely) it could be over in days. The firepower the Russians are amassing to the North, East and South of Ukraine would make short work of the Ukrainian defences in no time.

Ireland is seen as a major weak point in Europe's western flank. Its probably part of reason why the Irish government has an agreement in place with the UK which allows the RAF to provide us with air defence.

Being neutral would do that alright. All the better for it

If we just allow them to annex the Sudetenland we will have peace in our time

Need Rocky to fight in Moscow this Christmas and end this conflict


On a side note a mate of mine who is about 15 yrs older than me said he saw Rocky IV in Dublin in the cinema when it was released (think it was the Adelphi in Middle Abbey Street) and when Rocky made his speech at the end there was a round of applause in the cinemaLOL

I saw this as a kid in the Ambassador. I can confirm that it got a standing ovation. Great movie

Russia sells it's gas to Europe. Be grand.

Russia always uses Kosovo as an example. Why can they leave Serbia but Crimea can't leave Ukraine? 

Bosnia is the one to watch. It's going to kick off there any day.

Yeah that worked out well for Denmark 80 odd years ago.

Finland is neutral as well, it hasn't stopped them purchasing 64 F-35 fighter jets recently.

Not for that one. It clashed with youth club night.

Yep, when I saw it in the Ambassador you literally had a cinema full of 13/14 year old lads standing on the seats chanting "ROCKY! ROCKY! ROCKY!" at the end. And I must admit I was party to that chanting. Simpler times
