            Can Ukraine maintain these decades old airframes that they've never used before and provide them constant fighter cover? Russians will be gunning for them since they're easy targets, and any cover means less fighter cover for other units. Redditors refuse to answer this

            From scratch, or do you mean training Ukrainian fighter pilots (who are used to flying MiGs) to fly western fighters? Like the actual tech school for fighter pilots only involves 6-8 months of actual flying. Before that it’s all aeronautical principles and time in flight sims. Realistically we could train Ukrainian pilots on F-16s in about 7 months. If we have to train Ukrainian servicemen from scratch to be fighter pilots, then probably 18-21 months~

            For a brand new pilot, Bare minimum of six months, more like two years for full combat capability.
            For someone who's already a pilot of a different system, that gets cut down. Flying isn't actually the hard part, systems familiarity is. Learning how to operate advanced weapons, radar, ECM etc. Experienced MIG-29/SU-27 pilots for F-16s might be the best candidates, if you really crash-coursed and skimp some 'superfluous' stuff you could probably get them decently effective in six months I bet.

            The hardest part for Ukies is not speaking the language. For the Pzh 2000 they just had to memorise what to press when certain shapes of words came up on the screen and call the Germans via not-Zoom if anything went wrong.

But against a relatively modern military it is a meme and requires support that Ukraine doesn't have.

      >Hey we'll give you grain if you buy our military shit and let us have bases in the Med, looking at you Egypt!
      Which means the USA cannot concentrate on China. It also means that nations like, lets say Rwanda (who are the Singapore of Africa really) could potentially invade Uganda to take their $10 trillion in gold they just found... or Egypt might invade South Sudan to secure their water supplies from the Niles and this leads to other issues which will affect the bottomline of the US companies profits.

        The US cant even ignore Russia now. It wont be able to ignore it even if it losses because it will rearm itself for the day of the revenge. They will likely join forces with China. Hell, it wont be able to ignore it even if there is a coup in Russia or destabilizes because that could mean nukes getting lost or someone firing them in the confusion. It's a problem from hell. The only way for the US to stop caring about Russia if Russia joins NATO after a coup or something.

          With what machine tools, electronics, and workforce? All Russian military contractors, like Rheinmetall, Siemens, Eroglu or DMG Mori Aktiengesellschaft are all forced by Western sanctions to cut trade with Russia. The only tank factory that Russia has just closed due to a shortage of materials. It's not just the T-14 Armata - Russia will no longer have any more T-90s, T-80, thermals, fire-control systems, etc.

            Wrong. The Russian tank factory has reopened. Second, once the war is over, I guarantee you that they will spend a significant % of their resources to either buy machine-tools or invest hard in domestic manufacturing.

              And in five decades if they pull it off then maybe we will start caring, but North Korea has been "investing" in that shit for ages and we could still swat them with a fart.

          Dumb gay, if you post anything that could be interpreted as negative about US equipment or doctrine, no matter how minor, you will immediately get flooded with shills and report bombed until your thread gets deleted. Anything negative about any piece of US equipment, EXCEPT for the A-10. Because the shills who control the narrative on this board from Eglin AFB work for the air force, who is actively trying to convince congress to let them get rid of the A-10.

Each AnonBuck is worth $1 trillion. However only myself and my cat can use it. But look, I say it is worth $1 trillion, so my currency is the STRONGEST and BEST in the world hahaha!

              An alternative example is. I run a shop. It sells plates. I sell my plates for $10 each. Somebody comes along and forces my shop to close and blocks people entering. I then change the price of my plates to $100. I am doing better now! Look! My plates are $100! I buy the plates with my own money! This means I am doing better than before!

Instead he bitched out and left his retarded followers to take the whole federal assraping on their own.
          I've known he was a coward since I watched him freak the fuck out about ebola on twitter back in 2014. In fact it's known he was a coward since his non-existent "bone spurs" got him out of the draft for Vietnam.

            Yet Trump had harder stance in the Ukraine-Russia question than Obama. He sent heavy weapons to Ukrainians whereas Obama rejected those. Sure, the man is a fucking snake oil salesman and a shameless opportunist, but he never was in Putin's pocket. In case of a major war like this, a populist like Trump would most likely be demanding even harder measures against Russia to capitalize on the pro-Ukrainian sentiment.

                Also Trump didn't want to send the weapons in the first place, he was being mandated by Congress and the Constitution, just like how he didn't want to put sanctions on Russia.
