Sorry AD you deserve a better response but I'm on my phone and can't type everything out.

But the gist of what I want to say is this.

We know how putin (and trump) respond to certain situations. Threatening putin has never worked that I know of. Short of annihilation, I don't think there's a threat someone can make that will get his attention.

Just like with trump...we know he's not going to apologize or change.

Based on how people react to certain scenarios we can predict how they will behave. Obviously.

Lol. Yeah. Not very effective is the scientific answer.


Gotta link to that scientific study?

AD is suggesting its kind of a cold war situation. "Hey. We know you're dicking around. Stop or we'll divert resources to [expletive] your [expletive] up."

Putin didn't get to power being a dumbass who ignored threats. Managing risk is how he got powerful. He knows the US has the resources to focus on making his life hell. This announcement is a way to say, you're being difficult, don't make us return the favor.

Nope. I'm the best tho.

I also take issue with needlessly flippant statements. You obviously thought it was ineffective but didn't say why.

I said it could be effective and explained why. Yet, you focus on attacking what you think is my ineffective sarcasm radar? Huh, Lotta insight in those posts.

That's sarcasm, by the way. Or should I put it in blue to be clear?
