Do you think it would be too much to ask that people on these forums , myself included , step back a bit from back stabbing , blaming and finger pointing , and reflect on what is happening today in the real world.
I for one am now finding it hard to think about anything other than what is going on in Ukraine , and as such everything else to me is totally irrelevant.
The effects will be world wide , it will affect all of us , this game isnt even a speck of dust in comparison.
As has been said . This is timely . And appropriate . After a few pages of nit picks and avoiding the issue and topic . It is back with some interesting and thought provoking comments and information . About the topic .
A rare non WGT topic .
And as extreme as this comment from Joe sounds . They may be the minimum changes that could be a reality . There is potential for results far worse than that .
who knows what aspects of our various infrastructures maybe effected.
Access to your money in the banks - GONE.... Try to get 10,000.00 in cash today...
Water - shut off, unless on well.... with electricity
Electricity - shut off so much for the well. get a hand pump
FOOD - logistics, no trucks or trains etc... Buy *WISE* food supplies for 25 years
Travel - Every bridge will have a military contingent, stay the fork home
Information - No change, all horse hockey anyway. Darkness will be your narrative into the future. Still despise that word......
Gasoline, diesel, heating oil all will be cut-off
Natural gas - shut off
I can go on indefinitely, I would hope I need not...
Just so you all know, I alone can affect ALL of the above at a
MOMENTS notice. I have spent my life learning how people control others.
Take away the means of communication as well
Shutting off town water is EASY, same for ALL the other utilities we use
Switches, and valves. No rocket science here
NO INTERNET. no one thinks of that one
Buckle up Rosemary................
In fact since that post Putin has looked to be even more determined to provoke even higher levels of illegal warfare . Literally before we know it . There actually might not be a Ukraine .
How is this even possible ? Since 90% of the world disapproves of his actions . Why has he been allowed to get this far ?
I know that if we or other world powers step up . Then we will be accused of starting WW3 .
Other reasons include not wanting to sacrifice 10.s of thousands of our young brave US soldiers . ( very good reason ) .
Sanctions are not going to work . Puitin cares little more for his own people than he does Ukraine . He is so war driven and deranged . He will let Russia go broke and starve . Before he ever negotiates peace . And when and if he ever negotiates anything . You can bet the farm . If you still have one . That he is lying all the way .
I have no diplomatic or reasonable answers .
