But “octogenarian” is not a meaningful description of Russian tanks. In reality Russian tanks are both more effective and more sophisticated than any in the west. And this is true of essentially all weapons systems.

Russia has within itself all of the necessary resources and all of the technology to do whatever it wants. Does it want to occupy and control Europe? Hell no. But if Europe/US continue present course (hostility to Russia), Russia will do again what’s it’s done before: hand the collective west its ass.

Continue down this highway to hell and the beat down will come, as it did in 1721, 1812, and 1945.

At this point one can reasonably ask whether it’s better to just hurry up and get it over with. The sooner the better.

The Russians know that the military equipment being supplied to Ukraine by NATO is junk. The US in particular is getting cold feet; another defeat so quickly in the footsteps of Afghanistan withdrawl would look really bad. The world's one remaining superpower might not look so super or so powerful after all. After all, it still needs to keep its powder dry to confront China! LOL
