    You have a point, sadly. Putin views the UK as weak. And as much as it pains me to say this, it's hard to disagree with him.

    There's all sorts of headlines about the UK threatening Russia over the last week. That's fine if you agree with the threats. Doesn't change the fact they did it.

    https://www.cbsnews.com/news/russia...ing-britain-therea-may-extensive-retaliation/

    This part is fuckin' rich.

    US has murdered more than one of its citizens on the soil other sovereign nation. Somehow bombing them is ok but poisoning isn't? And in our case it's a fact whereas the UK merely says it's "highly likely".

    Personally I think it's naive to take government at its word. That view is backed up by America's strong regard for due process. So present some evidence and/or make a move. Or shall we just sabre-rattle a little to let them commie bastards know their place?

    Yeah, it's bad, I can imagine him sitting there and thinking, 'no chance England are gonna pipe up to me'.

    Question is, what does May respond? If Trump bails then what? Do we escalate and stay strong? Or do we back pedal and look even weaker?

    We have to retaliate in some way. Russians only respect strength. If they think you are weak, they will show you no mercy. I keep hearing Oldman's quote from Darkest Hour,

    "When will the lesson be learned? You cannot reason with a Tiger when your head is in it's mouth!"

    Then again, after The Last Jedi, we deserve to be wiped out in an inferno of radioactive flames.

    Sounds like the way you deal with them pesky klingons.

    Well, the God Emperor's Mother was born here, so we're practically the 51st State anyway:)

    Fortunately, the Tridents survived those atrocious defense budget cuts. For now.

    One more reason, if any were required, that Corbyn must never be allowed to gain power.

    Have to agree with Russia here. People keep poking and prodding the bear it's bound to wake up.

    2 people hardly qualifies as mass destruction. The religion of peace does more damage in the subway with a machete.

    You'd better be damn sure before threatening a country with a stronger military, and maybe run it by the country you're counting on to save you before barking threats you can't cover. And what the hell happened to this "america spends too much on military"? They're certainly happy to use the product of all that miltary spending.

    It's not the quantity of death the weapons bring that make it a weapon of mass destruction, but the type of weapon.

    These were advanced military grade nerve agents that are classified as WMDs against all sorts of treaties everyone has agreed to.

    No one is threatening anyone here except Russia. Teresa May is just asking what the fuck?

    Russian agents sprinkled WMDs in our ally's city and you think Teresa is the aggressor for asking why?

    Russia is currently ranked as the second most powerful country on earth for military. We are sixth.

    They have 3.3 million men ready to go and 800,000 waiting.

    Not to mention their Naval and Air fleet ready to go.

    We got 230,000 men ready for combat and a poultry 151,000 ready.

    Not to mention we are soft as shit and half our country would turn on us from the inside if we went to war, we ain't what we used to be.

    The Russians are hard and cold and merciless.

    Let's be realistic if something started we would be waiting for the USA to send over 2 gigantic Naval fleets with thousands of men to defend our shores and without them we'd be fucked.

    Basically all we have is the SAS, Royal Marines and UKAF

    Well, the President Of The U.S. won't be saying or doing anything to stop them if he has anything to do with it.
