Re: Give Ukraine Nukes
Nuclear neo-nazis* might be one way to achieve annihalation via alliteration.
But a few months ago, Ukraine boldy stated that it would pursue a nuclear weapons program. Not long afterwards, Russia expresses it's displeasure.
But such is politics. See also-
Mr Wallace said the UK was taking a leading role in supplying Ukrainian troops with the "vital weapons they need to defend their country from unprovoked invasion".
He said: "As Russia's tactics change, so must our support to Ukraine.
"These highly capable multiple-launch rocket systems will enable our Ukrainian friends to better protect themselves against the brutal use of long-range artillery, which Putin's forces have used indiscriminately to flatten cities."
Because for the last 100 days, we've heard endless stories about how Russia's committed thousands of war crimes using indiscriminate artillery. We've heard less about Ukraine also using heavy artillery, because Ukraine is only using artillery shells and rockets filled with sunflower seeds.
But there's a... logic to supplying a weapon system known as the 'grid-square', or 'square km' removal service to a country that's been indiscriminately shelling it's own population since 2014. This comment-
The multiple-launch rocket system can fire 12 surface-to-surface missiles within a minute and can strike targets within 50 miles (80km) with pinpoint accuracy
Is basically bollox, unless we're supplying Ukraine with M30/M31 guided missiles, in which case they're only precision for as long as GPS isn't being jammed or spoofed. But Ukraine had a lot of BM-30 MLRS, which have been crossing the Donbas front line in both directions since 2014. Much the same capability as the systems NATO is now supplying, and will probably be eliminated by Russia just as easily.
*It's official. Azov's rebranded, and no longer wears it's 2nd SS Panzer Division patch, or the SS's black sun because nasty Russians were using Azov's nazi insignia for propaganda purposes. Amazing the way an ideology can be changed with just a sewing kit.
