    Unbelievable shit of a performance. No words to describe this
  • Alemar replied to the thread Ronaldo has lost his baby boy.
    Absolutely terrible, heartbreaking news :( Condolesences to him and his family.
  • It’s difficult to imagine that Bailly, Tuanzebe, Jones will remain with Ten Hag in charge, it’s also more than likely to see Henderson leave.
  • Alemar replied to the thread Russian invasion of Ukraine.
    There are laws in relation to it now
  • Alemar replied to the thread Russian invasion of Ukraine.
    Why would he? Western Ukraine is an area where people traditionally disliked Russia and didn’t speak Russian. There are ties between Zakarpatie and Hungary, there are also ties to Poland, some ties to Romania - so that’s perhaps where some of...

    @harms thank you for the article! Great read. I wish Biden would also have read it, though.
  • Alemar replied to the thread Russian invasion of Ukraine.
    Oh, really? Why didn’t Biden insist on Zelensky abiding with Minsk agreements, then? :) Minsk agreements were in writing and duly ratified, and Zelensky had to grant Donbas a special constitutional status and conduct the elections. For some...

    Yes, in this sense exactly
  • Alemar replied to the thread Russian invasion of Ukraine.
    Russian army is stronger than NATO European forces (unless USA army joins, of course, and USA won’t join as it will lead to a nuclear war with guaranteed destruction of all the parties involved). So it probably is not a big threat for Putin.

    But there are ministries of international affairs in every country. If there is an offer to discuss, convey it via a Secretary of State to Putin’s respective minister - but Mr. Blinken, on the contrary, declared that tomorrow’s meeting with Mr...

    He doesn’t want to talk because no one OFFERS ANYTHING. During each talk all that is being said is “there will be new sanctions” and nothing else. There is no “carrot”, so Putin is simply fed up with threats of more stick
  • Alemar replied to the thread Russian invasion of Ukraine.
    But you now want Putin to give in as a viable solution, however :) That’s where carrot and a stick policy comes into play - make certain diplomatic concessions in order to receive bigger concessions from your counterpart. But how could you...
  • Alemar replied to the thread Russian invasion of Ukraine.
    It is even more clear that Putin will never let it happen, it is in the “theoretically impossible” section of options. Having NATO nuclear rockets 1km off Russian border is not a possibility, everyone who is mentally healthy should understand...
  • Alemar replied to the thread Russian invasion of Ukraine.
    My idea of negotiations is to offer someone to receive X in exchange for Y for the counterparty. They don’t offer Putin anything at all - only demand :)
  • Alemar replied to the thread Russian invasion of Ukraine.
    But they didn’t offer it previously, either. Usually what works is a “carrot and a stick policy”. But there is no carrot for Putin, and he has never been offered any - not a big surprise that “stick and more stick policy” is not working :)
