Looks like you're right to press (X) for the time being.
>Russian "peace-time force" is fighting a mobilized slavic nation souped up on neo-nazism, not the west.
Should've prepared for that. They had 8 years to prepare for this war and they've only managed to capture a relatively small portion of Ukraine. Don't get me wrong, it's still sizeable, but they've already given up like half of what they gained since February. If they were truly the superpower military they hyped themselves up to be or even just competent, everything east of the Dniepr would already be under Russian control by now.
>It's impossible to predict the domestic outcome of such a general mobilization but you are wrong about it not making a difference.
True, I should've said that it would've been most effective at the beginning since Ukraine began mobilizing on day one and as a result now they outnumber the Russians on the battlefield. Putin should've mobilized on day one, then he wouldn't be stuck with this quagmire that he's in now that he might end up losing anyway. Much like how Germany should've mobilized in 1941 instead of 1943. Sure they'll get more troops but at this point all it'll do is just draw out this meatgrinder even more.
Plus they've been constantly downplaying this war - "It's just a special military operation, it's not a real war". So far they've been trying everything they could to not mobilize, it's like mobilization is being treated as a last resort second only to using nukes. Mobilization would be admitting that the "special military operation" has completely failed and that it was a war all this time, and people won't be so confident about being able to actually make a difference. If anything, they'll think they're just getting sent over to die and they'll chimp out.
>No amount of freezing central Yuro fags will stop the zogbots of Kiev from waging war with Russia.
They're still dependent on a lot of gibs from Europe. Their industry can't produce their own versions of all those shiny toys, they only know how to produce Soviet shit. And in the worst case scenario from Europe, they'll have the choice of facing uprisings at home or giving into a Russian ultimatum of the complete cessation and blockage of weapons and supplies to Ukraine. At least until the winter passes and the Europeans secure alternate sources of fuel.

True, but it is also true that the Russians are only using a fraction of their might and among those doing the fight there are a lot of militias and mercenaries. General mobilization is not contemplated at this time.

Absolutely, but I'd argue the politicians are the bigger stick in the wheel rather than the military.

I believed and still believe Russia will offer peace once they capture Donetsk Oblast, throwing the towel before pushing the frontline away from Donetsk City is out of the question imo.

Surely nobody actually believes the Newspeak Kremlin is using to avoid saying the word war? They've just been happy about not getting conscripted.
It's Putin's duty to take the L and just do it at this point.
>and people won't be so confident about being able to actually make a difference.

It would be absolutely logical for the people to protest but we live in a world were sub-Saharan Africa is being fed to reproduce ad infinitum, medical professionals have no qualms with putting chainsaws to children's reproductive organs and we are posting about geopolitics on an imageboard for nazi my little pony fans, it's not too crazy to imagine the people begrudgingly going along with it without staging a coup.

What are they even going to do? You can't build a pipeline in that time and even if you could were would it go to? Transportation by ship is never feasible and they aren't exactly going to get out of this by building windmills. Stopping weapons supplies and sanctions would be a humiliating defeat, trying to trick the Russians with it is unlikely, if Russia don't get some reason to believe they wouldn't just immediately go back on it they won't take the deal.

>>351810

He should at least get a few hundred thousand, but I still think he will dodge it. The Russians still believe, and I still agree mostly, that the war will be won by grinding down the army and not taking territory. From that perspective they don't need that many more soldiers, if they just had another 5,000 sitting on the one undefended portion of the line the attack would have been another ridiculous failure like Kerson was.

Hell, they could have just used some of that offensive force they were building up to do it.

So they march thousands of their own troops to their deaths, lose all the gains they made, and abandon hundreds of billions of dollars worth of equipment just because they feel like it? You're implying that they could end this war in a heartbeat, but don't because they'd rather drag this out for 8 months?

I've seen multiple claims and reports of the Russians advancing on the southern Bakhmut axis the last few days.
If everything is to be believed the map should look something like this.
Locations including the winery in the industrial zone of Bakhmut city, the small village of Mayorsk on the N/W outskirts of Horlivka city, the hamlets of Mykolaivka (+Mykolaivka Druha), the Donbasskaya electrical sub-station and finally Zaitseve.
Mykolaivka and Mayorsk are springboards to bypass the fortified cliff (curved blue line) in order to capture Kurdiumivka town - the ukrops has claimed to have fought back a storming attempt of said town, probably coming from Mykolaivka direction.

I was wrong about Kurdiumivka not being a target, it gives an impression of the Russians planning to use the canal that runs from west of Mayorsk to east of Chasiv Yar as a dividing line to take Bakhmut.
If they make a big push to capture Soledar they are probably going to encircle Bakhmut from the north, but for now if they capture Kurdiumivka they will have a strong road to enter Bakhmut from the south with.

Autistic trivia about the canal i mentioned: It's inlets starts in Slavyansk from the Seversky Donets river and ends up in Donetsk city. There are many gaps where it runs through pipes or underground which makes excellent chokepoints.
The ukrops can't destroy these chokepoints like they always do with bridges so it will be interesting to see how hard they will defend it.

All the territory they've seized in Ukraine will be considered as a part of Russia "after" the referendums, so yes tactical nukes is on the menu if the ukrops' offensives get out of hand and it's a given that they're already mobilizing manpower for the active fronts.

Disclaimer: I don't believe that nukes exist. That said and for the sake of the argument, the use of nuclear weapons in Ukraine would be more than retarded as would irradiate and poison the Russian troops and the Russian civilians along the border.

nah nuclear weaponry is different to nuclear accidents such as fukushima and chernobyl, they are dropped in air and tend to dissipate in a couple of days. their power comes from the energy blast in itself, not the spreading of (long lasting) isotopes (like when nuclear reactors leak)
hence why hiroshima and nagasaki are liveable as of today but not fukushima

What is so hard to believe about nuclear weapons existing? Nuclear fission releases a fuckton of energy at once, and that energy is substantial to create a large explosion. Once you have the nuclear energy components the bomb itself is not a difficult concept.

The nukes most likely to be dropped if it gets to that (doubt it) aren't the massive city annihilating ones.
The warheads on the Iskander-M and Kalibr missiles are roughly 1/10 the weight and generate far less radiation than the ones dropped on Japan.
