Hindsight is great but . . .

Post by Early riser »

As I see things in Ukraine unfold, and the fact we're sending challenger tanks out there, I wonder if there's any regret closing such places as the ROF Nottingham? They've lost a huge amount of knowledge and experience apart from anything else. The whole thing is making me a bit teary as I thought our generation had learnt our lesson. Putin must be stopped, the Russian government has to man up and get rid of him, it is him, not Russia as was the case in 1939.

It also makes me wonder why tanks are even being used. They are outdated, even antiquated and they're very vulnerable with the right weapons. It seems to me the idea is to create as much misery as possible. This war could be over in minutes, even with conventional weapons (non-nukes) so why are ground troops and tanks even being used?

Welcome.

He certainly does but it seems like so many before him he’s a nutcase.
