Mind you, Russia is bigger than 3 Continents combined hence could attack more countries than others could.

False. Which 3 continents is Russia bigger than? Maybe Australia and Antarctica. Because North America alone is bigger than Russia. Even South America is bigger than Russia. Africa is way bigger than Russia.

Russia isn't USA. Don't you think there's been reason(s) why the WEST (including the USA) have always been afraid of Russia.
Russia also lost in Afghanistan after 20 years of war.


Even in this Ukraine war, the WEST have remained very very careful of their level of involvement.
Yes the West have to be very careful, because the West is weary of getting directly in foreign wars. But at the same time they are afraid of Putin doing a Hitler by invading other countries in Europe.


Moreover the issue in Ukraine is different from what happened in Afghanistan.
How is it different. The people refuse to be invaded and are ready to fight to the last man.

USA went to Afghanistan to wrestle power from Taliban

20 years later USA handed power back to Taliban after spending over $2Trilkijn

Who is the failure now, Russia or USA?
This only goes to show that it is impossible to invade a country who doesn't want to be invaded.

because you guys are not realistic at all, how can even imagine Russia get destroyed by NATO?
In a nuclear conflagration with NATO, Russia will become a nuclear waste land for centuries. Yes the remaining NATO countries will also suffer devastating consequences, it due to its shear size and spread, many more cities and people on the NATO side will survive. Its the effect on the whole planet of nuclear winter we are not sure of yet.

Putin is glaringly losing the war!

His last option is to use nukes!

It’s certain the Ukrainian offensive will reclaim all those lost territories at this present pace.

His fear is Crimea. The other 4 regions which he knows he will lose is just a buffer. Putin cannot afford to lose Crimea. I think he will resort to nuclear if Crimea is threatened.

First of all it was world war 2, not 11.

Second, the US nuked Japan not because it couldn't defeat the japs, but because nukes would cause far fewer casualties than using conventional weapons as was done in Dresden, also because the shock and awe factor would force Japan to an early surrender and thus shorten the war and its casualties, which indeed was what happened. Remember at this point the US almost singlehandedly won the war in the East and West by arming the Soviets and the Allies.


Thank for education them. Most Nigerians don't read, but make wild assumptions.

Not true, have you watch the movie ' pearl harbour' the diplomatic relation with America and Japan was becoming hostile.. although non has declared war.. not until Japan did a surprise attack on American soil.. which caught them off guard and succeeding in destroying a percentage of its military capability.. that was what instigated the use of nuclear warhead.

Wrong. That was not what instigated the use of nuclear war head on Japan. By August 1945, the US was already in Japan. Japan was already defeated. The problem was that the Japanese were ready to fight to the last man. Which would have resulted in have casualties on the US side, and catastrophic casualties on the Japanese side. The US just wanted to bring the war to an end with few casualties on its side. Besides, the US wanted to Test the bomb in real combat situation.

Lets look at the only war the US fought without begging for NATO support. We all thought Vietnam will be a 20 day affair. If my recollection is not hazy the Vietcong killed half of US troops and sent survivors home with PTSD grin

This scenario is similar to the Vietnam war. China was supplying Vietnam with ammunition, men and intelligence.

Make una dey decieve una selves. Russia is fighting NATO here bro. The USA and her allies provide weapons and intelligence to Ukrain. In war, Intelligence plays the greater part. Russia stood her ground with all NATO intelligence gathering and heavy sanctions.

When America went to war in Afginistan, she went with her allies o. She didnt go there alone and there were no sanctions againt America, yet, America lost the war.
Here, Russia is fighting without an allies, does her intelligence gathering alone, fighting against another country that gets intelligence gathering from NATO and USA, weapons plus heavy sanctions. Russia has tried. No country can sustain that.
That is why none of NATO countries can fight Russia alone. They have to and must be a team to fight Russia.
And you think Russia can win NATO in a nuclear war?

Nigeria has never been good ,fact are there from you to see

Nigeria need to get it's independence from these criminals that call themselves politicians


I hate so much negativity being radiated by you guys. Its bring about dark and negative energy and stifles personal and societal development. Learn to "count your blessings and name them one by one "

How can you compare Nigeria to Dubai. What's the historical and political background of dubai and what's that of Nigeria? What's the population of Dubai and what's that of Nigeria? What's the religious and ethnic composition of Dubai and that of Nigeria. You are comparing grapes with grapefruit.

Was there ever a blessing to count. Shm. U just highlighted some good oldies. And after then what has happened. Nigeria have been on reverse gear. Nothing good has ever come out of this country. Nothing.
False. Which Nigeria has been on reverse gear? Why not state which economic, social or physical indices that has been on reverse gear, so we can compare. Let's compare decade by decade since independence.

I I agree that our leaders could have done better, but even at that, we are still the best performing in Africa, save a few countries like South Africa and Egypt and maybe Morocco. Check how many villages have turned to towns and how many towns have turned to cities. Nigeria has the largest number of urban cities in the whole of Africa. How many urban cities does Ghana, Kenya or Rwanda have? They just hype their capital cities and maybe a few other cities and boom, they are better than Nigeria.

because some Nigerians have access to small good life or are lucky to be born to a prosperous family make them think that is how it is for everyone.

In this same Nigeria, some people are just dieing without seen electricity ever in their life, some don't know what express road look like. Not to talk of watching cinema.

Nigeria lost it at a point.

Yesterday I have to wash my car and remove the battery due to bad road. Na till dry season again before I will be able to drive my car o.

Have bought a bike. Pls is that achievement.

I have to buy solar, because we are just contributing money to buy pole in my neighborhood, not gotten to stage of wire or transformer yet.

Shm on Nigeria abeg

Agreed, we should be doing better in terms of public electricity. That is due to the over centralization of electricity generation, transmission and distribution that was put in place by the military. It did not allow states and individuals to generate and distribute their own electricity. Even with the so call privatisation of the power sector, states and individuals still can't general and distribute their own power. If we were still operating the 1959 regional systems where completion was encouraged, I am certain most regions would have been self sufficient in power.

All the so called achievement you think should be a reason to hail our past leaders, who should we blame for all the debts Nigeria has incured, considering the fact that Nigeria used to be a country that lends money to Japan and other country's in the 70's?
That was because we had excess petro-dollers from the 1972 middle east crisis and our leaders did not know what to do with the excess money. Remember our problem then was not money but how to spend it. Meanwhile, we had no functional international airport, railway system, roads, etc, at that time.


Today, Japan is more developed than Nigeria; Who should we blame for it? Our past leaders or not? Should we blame the Nigerians (followers)? Well, I think the followers such as you should be blamed because you keep enjoying the low standard your leaders have put you. Compare your life with that of other countries' citizens and see that they are better off than you.
Not just today, Japan had always been more developed than Nigeria. In the 70s Japan was already an industrialised nation. Japan had achieved almost 100% literacy level by yhe beginning of the 20th century, when our own literacy level was almost zero.


Today, Nigerian graduates are moving to other countries for better life, even though they are paid less than foreigners (counterparts) from other countries simply because Nigeria is of low standard. If you don't know, you are a product of your country and if you don't aim high for your country, others won't rate you high.
That's because Nigerians want to enjoy a ready made society built on the sweat and sacrifices of others, instead of sweating and sacrificing to build out own society. We like to enjoy ready made.


Guy, I won't blame you because even a fool is wise to himself but try to humble your stupidity. Fella sang it in one of his songs about people like you.

Fela never ran away, he choose to come back and fight for a better society for Nigeria and back Africa. If we can get just 10 Felas in the whole of Nigeria. Nigeria will start to become a better country.

It cannot be underplayed. Its just not "most" as you claimed.

See below.


When I said most, I meant at the lowest point of Russia during the war when they were on the verge of defeat. If those supplies had not come in on time, they most probably would have lost the war.
What was the state of the Russian military in terms of arms, resources and money as at October 1944? Yes, throughout the duration of the war, the Russians were able to manufacture 106,000 tanks, but over 76% was destroyed by the Germans. They had only about 16,000 at the start of the war, but the Russians ramped up production to meet war demands. The problem was that by winter of 1944, the Germans had taken out most of Russian war manufacturing infrastructure, so the Russians had to import.

No one says they didnt help, but to quantify that help as constituting most of Russia's resources is plain wrong.
We can start with small statistics.

Tanks - Russia had over 108, 000 tanks produced in WW2.
The US gave them a total of 15, 000 tanks.

Most? Think again bro.

Even the Russians themselves cannot underplayed the important role the US played in helping them defeat Nazi Germany.
Google the lend-lease Act of 1941and how much material was sent to Russia under the act.

I am not even sure about that. To say that they helped Russia with those factors you mentioned is unquestionably true, but to say that their contribution in that regard constituted "most" of Russia's resources would be debatable.

I am very sure about that. How do you think stalin that lost so much men and material at the beginning of the invasion was able to recover and push the Germans back. The German were already at the gates of Leningrad. Even petrol to prosecute the war was provided by the British as the oil rich caucuses had been cut off. Germany ran out of petrol whil Russia had excess supply from Britain.
The US supplied Stalin with weapons and ammunition.

Has it been confirmed who bombed the nuclear plant in Ukraine? Nyet.
Who destroyed the pipelines? Nyet
Since the perpetrators of these acts has not been ascertained, then why make wild assumptions and conclusions. Let each side present their evidences in accusing the other side



Every rational person knows a nuclear explosion wherever will be met with devastating consequences. A nuclear bomb exploded several kilometers above the earth fries every electronic device that is on. An EMP. That would be the first thing any right thinking mad dictator with suicidal tendencies would start with. It would basically send the recipient of EMP back to stone age. Comes the Triad. A few countries have the nuclear triad. Land Sea and Air. america, russia, china, israel, UK, France,India have a nuclear triad, they have nuclear bombs in subs, sea subs and air . Bomb them and a nuclear strike can come from land, sea or air. This commonly called MAD. Mutually Assured Destruction.
Bomb us and we have worse lurking in the air or undersea or in some land based silos.
Putin does not bluff when it comes maybe to crushing his political opponents but when it come to nuclear , one landing in Moscow will fry his arse.
If Putin is aware that a nuclear strike will result in MAD, why then has he been threatening to use nuclear since the beginning of the conflict? Has made contingency plan to relocate himself and family to space once the nuclear bombs starts flying? The Israeli intelligence says Russia is moving tactical nuclear weapons within range of Finland and Ukraine.


The war is full of propaganda. Ukraine claims to be winning yet they lost so much territory .
Putin is not going anywhere soon. Russians view his actions as uniting the former USSR territories that NATO is desperate to take over and 'democratice'.
Yes propaganda is a weapon of war, but propaganda cannot be sustained for too long. Evidence and truth will eventually catch up with it. Russia took much of Ukraine territory at first because it was Russia that attacked and Ukraine was not prepared for a full blown war, but in the last 6 months, Ukraine has fully prepared in terms men and materials and have now gone on the counter offensive. It was a similar situation when Germany invaded Russia in 1943, the Russians were completely caught off guard. The Germans almost took over Leningrad before the Russians reorganised and pushed the Germans back. Ironically, it was the same US and her allies that provided arms, logistics and money to help the Russians defeat Germany.

It will be difficult for Russia win this war. Putin messed up big time. He launched an invasion of another country without being fully prepared. Hitler used over 5 years to prepare Germany for his invasion. Putin felt he could take Ukraine with less than 200,000 soldiers in a "special military operation", he must be deluded. Its now that he is losing that he is calling up reserves to shore up his soldiers. Its like recruiting fire fighters to put out a fire that had already started.
Zelenski had called up millions of reserves 5 months ago. As it stands, Ukraine has more active soldiers than Russia.



We not headed into the atomic bomb territory. Everyone knows its the end, a bomb falling in Moscow will have fallout over a large territory.
The Tsar bomber sent shock waves thousands of kilometers away breaking windows yet was exploded mid air high altitude. Was in the Megaton range while those Enola Gay was only 15 Kilotons and killed 200K

Then tell your mentor Putin to quit threatening everyone with nuclear weapons.

Not true. You said that in all examples I gave, that the family lineages were known, which I've shown not to be true. First aknowledge you were wrong.

Yahoo, cultism, etc are social vices and aren't genetic but environmental (how they were raised and their interactions growing up)
Even clearly genetic traits are not guaranteed to manifest - they are only dispositions that the right conditions will cause NOT to manifest.

Not exactly accurate. Yes traditional medicine has not been able to link our lifestyles, behaviours and habits to genetics, Spiritual science has. Please read "The Dancing Wu Li Masters" by Gary Zukav. It explains that each of our actions is imprinted on our DNA on the quantum level, and so such behaviours and habits are inheritable. Ever wonder how birds are able to build nests without studying architecture. The behaviour is imprinted in its DNA. There have been instances of twins separated from birth having the same habits and behaviours. These things operate on the quantum level.

Yes, most adopted kids turn out to be ingrates but it's not enough to promote wickedness.

Moses is a poor example. Didn't Moses betray his adopted mother and her family who laboured to nurture and raise him, only to go back to his original family. The adopted family later became his arch enemy.
