consequences greater than any you have faced in history

gee, that phrasing has a familiar ring to it ...

Russian President Vladimir Putin issued a dire threat to Western nations on Thursday morning, saying they would face "consequences greater than any you have faced in history" if they become involved with his invasion of Ukraine.

He made the remarks as part of his speech that aired Thursday at 6 a.m. Moscow time in which he announced the invasion. Immediately after the speech, the Ukrainian foreign ministry reported attacks in numerous cities.

Putin used familiar arguments to justify the attack. He framed it as an act of self-defense against the eastward expansion of NATO and as a means of protecting Ukrainians from "nazification" and a "genocide."

Those lines have been roundly rejected by Western leaders. There is no evidence of a genocide taking place in Ukraine.

In the buildup to these events, the US warned that Russia would stage so-called false-flag operations and provocations to justify a war.

Putin earlier this week ordered troops into eastern areas of Ukraine — Donetsk and Luhansk — held by separatist forces there.

It escalated Thursday into attacks on other parts of Ukraine, which Putin said was in response to separatists in Donetsk and Luhansk requesting help. Those new attacked tipped the conflict into war.

In the speech he addressed the leaders who have aligned in opposition to the invasion.

"To anyone who would consider interfering from outside: If you do, you will face consequences greater than any you have faced in history," he said, according to Politico's translation of the speech.

"All the relevant decisions have been taken. I hope you hear me."

His speech also alluded to the substantial nuclear arsenal he commands, noting that Russia "is today one of the most powerful nuclear powers," per Politico's translation.

Yes, he does have a large nuclear force and the US does as well, along with France and the UK. 

Perhaps we can send the US supporters of Putin to Russia which would clean out the traitor gene pool in the US.

And pretty much eliminate the republican party.  Leaving nobody but the RINO's (in their opinion).

Agreed. I find it somewhat amazing that Putin can't see or ignores the parallels to Hitler annexing and invading for essentially the same reasons. I wonder how the Russian in the street feels about Putin basically turning their country into a WWII Germany in some aspects.

one doesnt have to go that far back , look to the soviet responses in the 50s and 60s to Hungary and Czechoslovakia. during the cold war and the days of the iron curtain .

 same reasoning is being applied here. to keep the satellite within the Russian sphere of influence, even against their will.

You really think Putin would allow his tightly controlled media outlets to inform the citizenry of what was truly going on?

It's pretty hard to hide what your Army is doing in something like this. There's somewhere between 150,000 to 190,000 troops there, and all of them talk to their families.

As far as Kim is concerned , he is a wild card and a loose cannon on deck .

 pretty much set up as a family monarchy of a dictatorial style , 

people tend to forget that NK has been supported by both the soviets , now Russia , and China , though most think China has more influence .

 can he become a headache for the US and its allies ? definitely ,

can he become a headache for Russia and China ? wild cards usually are .

 As they say , and so we wait .

What would that be? ....hummmm... what could the worst thing the West ever faced in history?

Naw... Putin won't wait for 2024... I heard this little butt-nugget the other day.

Rep. Matt Gaetz said he'd like Trump to become House Speaker "for like, three or four hours."

Well, i take it his referencing and reminding of his countries nuclear arsenal , as invocation of the old cold war practice of MAD ( mutually assured destruction ) .

i think we can all pretty much agree with the ending of the movie War games , and the computer joshua , that the best way to win that particular game , is not to play at all.

he just started playing it . and about the only way he might be concerned is if his bung hole were individually targeted with several ICBMs 

I believe i pointed that out a month or so ago in a discussion . and i also said todays world leaders dont have the sack to do that .

I'm neither a psychologist or a political scientist or analyst, but I get the feeling Putin doesn't care overmuch if he were targeted. I get the impression that the main thing to him is wielding power and as long as history records him as having the stones to do unto the world as he wills he'd be just fine with that, even if he died in the process. So, to me...

"To anyone who would consider interfering from outside: If you do, you will face consequences greater than any you have faced in history," he said, according to Politico's translation of the speech. "All the relevant decisions have been taken. I hope you hear me."

... pretty much scares the crap out of me. Problem is, we can't simply let him get away with this and I'm not very convinced sanctions are going to do much of anything. In my admittedly unqualified opinion, NATO should have amassed a force equal to Putin's on Ukraine's western border without saying what they were there for and let the implication speak for us. 

Sanctions will not stop Putin from taking all of Ukraine if that is his plan and, if it is, he will never give it up because the thing I believe he hates most is to appear weak. The west did nothing about his annexation of Crimea and we should have because it only emboldened Putin. Now, when he completes his conquest of Ukraine, we now have to wonder what will be his next target and are we going to fold again when he makes the same dire threats?

I am none of those things you mention either , simply a student of history . 

i have no doubt he has a plan , and is taking a gamble , and he wouldnt take it if he thought he wouldnt win .

I think his next target is obvious or at least it is to me .

he will attempt to push back his buffer zones to what they were under the old soviet regime started by Stalin after WW 2.

 russia is currently a petro country dependent on fuel and energy dollars , when the old soviet union fell , Russia lost many of those buffer countries that protected the supply lines and since they dont control or have a meaningful influence over where those lines are , that puts the economy in question AND in jepardy. and as you said its about control  and who controls it .  and he wants to control it . or at least have his country control it

Well, that would be a heck of a trick, since most of those countries are already members of NATO.

just remember , economic control can be translated into political control, but to us laymen , we call it blackmail. they call it politics .
