  1. In light of today’s terror attacks, the following declarations should be made :

    1/ Russia is implementing planned, systematic genocide. The proof is in the statements of Medvedev, Solovyov, Simonyan and RIA Novosti.
    2/ Russia is officially designated a terrorist state.
    3/ NFZ is to be declared by coalition forces with immediate effect.
    4/ Coalition ground troops to enter the cities of Kyiv, Zaporizhia, Mykolaiv, Odesa, Kharkiv and others, in a purely defensive role. They will only attack if themselves attacked.
    5/ Russia must leave Ukraine. There is no “off ramp”, but there will be a huge peace dividend for Russia, once it has paid in full for the death, misery, terror and destruction it has inflicted needlessly.

    • The way bureaucracy is they would still need a meeting. I agree with the massive increase in arms, ammo, and a NFZ Sir OFP. Jumping up to Sir Scradge’s comments, agree however on #4 I wouldn’t want coalition to be limited to defensive role.

What is your opinion?
