I don't know but the media keep saying that the Russians have 100,000 men on the borders of the Ukraine , from my limited Military Knowledge I thought the attacker need a 3 to one advantage .A quick google says the Ukrainians have an army of 280,000 plus another 200,000 reserves , I know the Russian equipment is far better than the Ukrainians and I don't know how motivated the Ukrainians will be when / if the shooting starts ?

I think it might be very limited if anything happens ????

They resolve to fight for their land to the last bullet and drop of blood.
Aren't we supplying them with hardware?

The Russians just might get a bloody nose. Didn't do so well in Afghanistan. Ukrainians will be fighting for their country so the quick invasion might turn into a marathon and Russian mums will be wailing when the body bags start to come home. Surely Putin must be asking himself is this really worth it?

It could also be a now or never situation from Putin’s point of view?

If I were either xi or putin it would seem pretty obvious to me too.
Well, I am neither. But it would pose a very great strategic risk to at least one - and maybe both of them - too. I think, on balance, if I were XI I'd suggest such a thing to Putin, and then have a real go-slow for my part; and wait and see...
