The West is confident that NATO will defeat Russia in 72 hours


Russian President Vladimir Putin has long been arguing with the West over NATO expansion. In particular, the Russian leader spoke out sharply against the possibility of Kyiv joining the North Atlantic Alliance and launched a NVO on Ukrainian territory. This was written by the American edition of Newsweek, studying opinions in the United States.


The publication notes that some American experts are concerned about the possible expansion of the conflict in Ukraine to the NATO countries. For example, they talk about the likely application of article 5 of the organization's charter in the event of an "attack" on Poland. After that, a powerful military collective response of the entire bloc will follow.

Adam Kinzinger, a member of the House of Representatives of the US Congress, a Republican from Illinois, drew attention to these arguments. He opined on what the conflict between NATO and Russia would be like, responding to a tweet asking why the bloc has not yet defeated Russia.

I hope this is a joke. NATO against Russia will be like a real three-day operation

- the parliamentarian wrote on his Twitter account (a social network banned in the Russian Federation).

The congressman, like many in the West, is confident that NATO will defeat Russia in 72 hours. But while the bloc's member states do provide Ukraine with military and humanitarian assistance throughout the conflict, they do not directly participate in it. Moreover, since Ukraine is not a member of NATO, Russia's actions on its territory will not provoke a military response from the bloc. In November, after a Ukrainian air defense missile fell on a village in Poland, fears of NATO intervention intensified, but quickly dissipated, the media concluded.

    in general, it is possible if tens of thousands of missiles and drones simultaneously attack all military installations. Roughly speaking, if you spend 10 trillion dollars and neutralize nuclear weapons, then it is possible.

      A classmate of his son served with them. He was always a Westerner, a nationalist, he quit the Armed Forces of Ukraine, went to serve in a foreign PMC, then ended up in Deltaforce. I heard from my son (he himself does not communicate with this Bendera man) that with the beginning of the SVO, he was in Ukraine, was a saboteur, liquidated several of our special forces near Severodonetsk and Kherson. Now he seems to be working in the Highmars. Perhaps the hotel in Stakhanov - and his handiwork too. Even earlier, he supported the Maydanuts, during the coup he worked a couple of Berkut soldiers, they even wanted to judge him for this, but the ATO began, and heroes are not judged. So it’s not even particularly encrypted that the mercenary serves in Ukraine, leads a Facebook page.

    Why not.
    The physical destruction of the RF Armed Forces in 72 hours is unlikely, but the destruction of decision-making centers, the most important defense enterprises, satellite constellations and aviation concentration sites is quite a real option.
    Well, after that there will be few options: either a guerrilla war and the gradual transformation of the country into Somalia/Iraq/Afghanistan. Or an honorable surrender.

    Z. Y. : In general, all this would have become a reality a long time ago, if not for the legacy of an ancient civilization in the form of nuclear weapons.
    Another question is that rockets are still quite ancient, unlike pro weapons. Yes, and their real state can also raise questions. The statements are brave, but in fact .... they also recently said about the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation that 80% of the equipment is new.

    Why didn't they win? In just 72 hours, they would push, push, and voila, all issues would be resolved.

      I will assume that the West is really (!) satisfied with how "everything" is happening at the moment - i.e. from the beginning, Russia has been doing everything according to scripts written in the CIA / MI6

    Hmm, I have long been worried about the dashing state of - I don't know if all of them - publicly speaking American congressmen and congresswomen. They are not afraid of anything, they are absolutely sure that nothing threatens them, but it should be the other way around.
    Consolation, of course, is the indisputable fact that in the event of the beginning and intensification of a possible conflict with a stone from the NATO pack, this congressman will shake his charred bones in the next world, but weakly.
    But how to bring them to life without specific destruction in one of the NATO countries, at least for a start, - to be honest, I can’t imagine ((

      And the first army, in the face of the Soviet, had problems with the Hungarians and Czechs, breeding Chinese ceremonies. Thus, not only with the 22nd army of the world, but with a gang of hooligans, you can carry on for 10 years. On the other side, people are dear to us, just like us ... Well, well

    It is difficult to say whether he can be right or not. Neither the United States nor the Russian Federation have a correct idea of ​​the real strength of each other. By indirect indications, the Americans are not as strong as they themselves like to think. Their "victory" over Germany without the USSR would never have happened (it exists only in Hollywood propaganda), they did not "win" either in Korea, or in Vietnam, or in Afghanistan, or in Syria. They destroyed Serbia, yes, like Libya and Iraq. According to indirect signs, Russia is not as strong as many like to think at home, and in the West, Russia is traditionally still afraid. Is it just worth it? Afghanistan has become a disaster, Ukraine is destroying all ideas about the military capabilities of the Russian Federation, this is no longer a disaster, but an image armageddon. If Russia did not have nuclear weapons, this uncle could be right, because it is impossible to protect such a vast territory as the Russian Federation with Gulliver's Armed Forces and ancient missiles. If you don't want to feed your army, you will feed someone else's.

      I have deja vu. Who are you, a timid Georgian or a "brave" Pole?

      Are you using the same method? One day, from their owner of a brothel, TSU received ........?

      this uncle is out of touch with reality if he believes that the Russian Federation does not have nuclear weapons. if he decided that 28 NATO countries could attack one country and at the same time have the "gentleman's" right to demand from the country not to use nuclear weapons against them, it's the same as demanding from a person not to use a knife against the crowd that attacked him

    if the Zionists of the "shadow government" of the United States think so, then the United States, having decided on a conflict with the Russian Federation, will disappear within an hour. it is possible that such woodpeckers, brought up on comics, are sure that against NATO, the Russians will fight with PPSh and on the T-34

    In all ages there were many "forwarders", but only black soil remained from them, let them come, only the earth will become better, and we will accept and calm them down, even I will remember Afghan and Chechnya at the age of 60, although the war will be bloody with new technologies , but technology will not work in the forest, Vietnam is a witness to this ...

      And in Russia it will not be applied. 1000 axes in one salvo and even before a bunch of MLRS, aviation and as an analogue there is no air defense will repel the blow. Here a couple of missiles fly quietly up to 700 km. There is no salvation from the Hamers, but there are only two dozen of them.

    after the "wonderful victories-regroupings" of an outstanding military leader of all times and peoples, led by the S& , there is nothing surprising in these words. Moreover, to wet for 10 months and still not douse (and how much more this tn can last?) The poorest country in Europe - Ukraine is talking about something. The second army of the world they said. What kind of world ?-Now I want to clarify. Third or fourth?
