Funny, they cannot go back even if the orders are stupid and shitty.

I hate Hasan, even prior to conflict, he is the most idiotic streamer there is. At least from those major ones. Big baby.

So whole interview was like balsam to my soul.

Wow I watched a little bit of Hasan on Twitch just now and he is something else. Was in there for 5 minutes and he already sounds like a Bolshevik.

Yeah he is mainly cosplaying this aesthetic for clicks, he even had, for a long time, Soviet flag behind him. Worse think is that he is obnoxiously dumb, I recommend this video, it's all you have to know:

Russia is getting ready to test this new nuclear missile (also called flying Chernobyl) (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/9M730_Burevestnik (nato SSC-X-9 Skyfall) Last test was a failure and killed few scientists. This is basicly a missile that even its flight causes radioactive waste.


On 9 August 2019, the Russian nuclear energy agency Rosatom confirmed a release of radioactivity at the State Central Navy Testing Range at Nyonoksa near Severodvinsk in northern Russia and stated it was linked to an accident involving the test of an "isotope power source for a liquid-fuelled rocket engine".[18][19] Five weapons scientists were killed in the accident.[20] Nonproliferation expert Jeffrey Lewis and Federation of American Scientists fellow Ankit Panda suspect the incident resulted from a test of the Burevestnik cruise missile.[21] However, other arms control experts disputed the assertions: Ian Williams of the Center for Strategic and International Studies and James Acton of the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace expressed skepticism over Moscow's financial and technical capabilities to field the weapon,[22] while Michael Kofman of the Wilson Center concluded that the explosion was probably not related to Burevestnik but instead to the testing of another military platform.[23]

According to CNBC, the explosion occurred during an attempt to recover a missile from the seabed which was lost during a previously failed test.[24] On 10 October, Thomas DiNanno, member of the United States delegation to the United Nations General Assembly First Committee, stated that the "August 8th 'Skyfall' incident [...] was the result of a nuclear reaction that occurred during the recovery of a Russian nuclear-powered cruise missile", which "remained on the bed of the White Sea since its failed test early last year".[25]

On 26 August, Aleksei Karpov, Russia's envoy to international organizations in Vienna, stated that the accident was linked to the development of weapons which Russia had to begin creating as "one of the tit-for-tat measures in the wake of the United States' withdrawal from the Anti-Ballistic Missile Treaty".[26]

On 21 November, at the ceremony of presentation of posthumous awards to the dead men's families, Vladimir Putin stated that the scientists killed in the August 8th explosion had been testing an “unparalleled” weapon: “We are talking about the most advanced and unparalleled technical ideas and solutions about weapons design to ensure Russia’s sovereignty and security for decades to come". He also noted that the "weapon is to be perfected regardless of anything"

Nah it would still go on
Of course the world would go on. That's why I said "the world as we know it". The moment that any nation uses nuclear weapons in the modern era in anger against another country daily life and society around the world as we know it would be changed forever. It would make the international security reaction to 9/11 look like nothing.


There would be no unfucking of that situation. Not in our lifetimes anyway.

Putin: "All is going according to plan with the special military operation."

Also Putin: "Actually, surprise military mobilisation!"
"Sir I thought we were winning? 🤔"

" We are! 🙂"

"Then why do we need more soldiers and why do they need to be civilians? 🤔"

"..."

*Nods head at bodyguard*

"My friend I think you are asking exactly the right questions so why don't we get you up to the third floor real quick to get you the right answers!"


"Elevator is broken though so we are going to have to take the stairs 🙂"
 
With regards to the use of a tactical nuclear weapons in Ukraine. If Putin was to do that he would burn the last bridge with any allies Russia still has. The Chinese certainly will not appreciate Putin lobbing nukes around and Russia needs China. Literally no country on this planet (even the shitty horrible dictator like ones) wants to see nuclear weapons "normalised" as a tool of war which is what using nukes in Ukraine would lead too. Now I don't believe that the use of tactical nukes in Ukraine will ultimately lead to the west lobbing nukes at Russia and Russia replying in kind.

However you can bet brighter minds than ours have formulated a necessary response with the goal of showing any country that the use of Nuclear weapons be they low yield or whatever is a completely unacceptable, immoral and a barbaric act and the price for using them will out way any "tactical" advantage. Naturally we won't know what the response is and the rest of the world (this is no longer just a Western problem) are purposely keeping what their response would be as "vague" as possible. The main reason is so that we do not give Russia a chance to do a cost/benefit analysis on whether using Nukes would be acceptable

I do think there is a small possibility he could say fuck it "Nukes" (Putler: if it's me, then I do not go alone, "I am Ruzzia"). No one thought he would be so stupid to make war in these times, but he did. I could not be surprised that as soon as he gets more cornered tells China to "help me" or you get nuked too. Still, China is losing a lot with this war, NATO = stronger, Taiwan = stronger, and countries allied to pushing economically to anyone who starts this type of shit.

China depends too much on others economically, one bad move and it goes Kaboom. The Chinese people can revolt if things go sour, or at least I believe so.

"He [Hasan} is the great representation of this privileged American and manifestation of everything I pretty much despite right now in the United States. People who use communism and Soviet Union as an aesthetic. To me, he wear some kind of Soviet Union hat with a red star at the top is about the same as praising Hitler."

Question:

If Putin pushes the nuclear button, what would be the likely course of action with regards to a response from Ukraine and its allies?

Well, he’s not going to, but the response would likely be instantaneous targeting of Russian military installations across the country from US cruise missiles. In about an hour, every single one of them would be pounded into oblivion. Those installations would include any one Putin may be in, in order to kill him, and his political infrastructure.

World War 3 would not happen, however. Russia clearly do not have the capability to stand up to the US. The last six months have proved this. It’d be incredibly one sided, absolutely awful, and entirely necessary.

I have been wondering what would happen if there was a total collapse of the government either through the death of Putin or a civilian uprising.


Has there ever been a major coup or governmental shift in a country with a globally significant nuclear stockpile?

Russia did it once already after the fall of the USSR. The successor governments or tribes would have a vested interest in controlling nuclear stockpiles.

Obviously. I meant outside of there since the fall. I should have been more specific.

I can't recall any other countries having it happen.

I believe the USSR is the only nuclear power which ever collapsed to such a degree. North Korea is the only real candidate and I think either RoK or PRC would step in to take custody during such an event.

I agree. I would be shocked if China didn't have a "whoops it's mine now" plan for NK.

Russia is still occupying a part of Manchuria that China wants, because it was chinese for centuries.
If it wasn't for nuclear weapons, I bet Russia and China would have gone to war decades ago, over it.
Maybe now it's the time for Xi to make Manchuria great again.

Does putin really thinks he can win a war with soldiers that don't want to fight? the main army wasn't that great to begin with, and now he wants to fight with reservists...
 
They’ll be in their tracksuits during winter..
Very important observation. I'm sure plans are in place to do the best job of outfitting Ukrainian soldiers with winter gear and will still be motivated. Russians will be freezing, starving, unmotivated and only wanting to go home. The people of those occupied territories will be kicked out of their homes and will have a very difficult time also.
