🚨🚨🚨 BREAKING: Russia has fired hypersonic Kinzhal (“dagger”) missiles in Ukraine.
Officially, the weapons were used to destroy a munitions depot in Ivano-Frankivsk.
In reality, this is a MAJOR deterrent signal to NATO. 🧵
There is no plausible reason that the Kinzhal would need to be deployed against Ukraine, given that its air defenses have already been suppressed.
It is Russia’s single most advanced conventional weapon – 13 times as fast as a tomahawk, with 3x the payload.
Russia’s use of the Kinzhal in Ukraine is similar to Trump’s use of the MOAB (Mother of All Bombs) in Afghanistan in 2017.
In both instances, the point of the weapons deployment was not the immediate combat effect.
The goal is to menace other adversaries by demoing a system.
Putin’s decision to use the Kinzhal is more escalatory than Trump’s use of the MOAB, because the Kinzhal is nuclear capable.
Due to its extreme range, it is a “carrier killer” – capable of wiping out an entire U.S. Carrier Strike Group.
It is impossible to overstate what an advanced system the Kinzhal represents.
The West acted like China’s test of a hypersonic glider was a “Sputnik moment.”
But the Kinzhal achieves hypersonic speed + maneuverability throughout its flight, not merely in the terminal phase.
By firing Kinzhals in Ukraine, Putin is sending a major “do not F with us” message to the West.
He is reminding the world that, whatever logistics challenges his military faces, it retains an edge in absolute bleeding-edge nuclear and conventional weaponry.
Today, Putin has also taken one step closer to the nuclear threshold.
He just demoed Russia’s premier tactical-nuke delivery system in Ukraine.
The message to NATO could not be clearer: If you intervene in the conflict, I will use this system against you.
Addendum – Don’t take my word that the missile was fired.
Here is confirmation from Russia’s Defense Ministry: ria.ru/20220319/sklad…
The claim that use of a hypersonic missile was required due to this being a heavily armored bunker does NOT withstand scrutiny.
Even the U.S. DoD doesn't claim that America has hypersonic missiles equivalent to Russia's Kinzhal or Zircon.
But anons with Ukrainian flags in their Twitter profiles know the West has the "same technology or better."
Their blind hubris pushes the world towards destruction. https://t.co/BAVSVIg2Ez

From 18 March citing statements from 29 November:
“The American Air Force general shared the same message with defence officials in Ottawa…’I cannot defend, nor am I tasked to defend, against a hypersonic glide vehicle attack’.”https://t.co/TLexFxY2MV

All this has been thrust upon us, thanks to idiot Biden’s weakness and incompetence. So, what do we do? Repossess all the Javelins and Stingers? Beg Putin’s forgiveness for making the armed conquest of Ukraine tougher? Buy more oil from him? Disband NATO?
Or do we shove it back in his face? We have nukes, too. Even if ours are slower, they will still reach their targets. We have ballistic missile submarines on patrol that cannot be stopped. Either submit, surrender or push back. A lot rides on the call. Too bad election fraud put us (the WORLD) in this position.
But, don’t worry. Idiot Biden will cower and surrender. The end will be delayed for years. Us old folks will be OK. Woe to our children and grandchildren, though. Woe to them.
Like Covid, the invasion of Ukraine was planned for specific purposes, raising gas prices not the least of which.
I starting to think this more and more.
Do you include in your specific purposes that joe needed to destroy proof about him, bro jim and hunter’s involvement in Ukraine at the same time as rewarding Putin for keeping quiet about what he has on the biden crime family by letting him (Putin) take territory as well as paying him off thru oil imports and a juicy Iran deal?
Was Putin in on the planning?
But hey, we’re only up against one guy: Putin. We need to starve out his people so they “take him out.” That makes sense.
And Russia is losing anyway. I have cartoons with tank-dicks to prove it.
Wait wait…I must have slipped into my “paid globalist troll” persona.
I should do more posts like this….show how easy it is to out-greg greg.
“Here’s a picture of a sad kid in Ukraine singing…”
“Putin is crazy and his army isn’t actually invading the Ukraine successfully…”
“Trump is a fat man who should step in a manhole and go away…”
“Biden is doing super at this, with hyper inflation, $4+ gas, more cops dying, more Black Americans dying, less jobs, spending more, trafficking kids across the border, obeying China, causing/allowing wars all over…Thank God Trump isn’t President, with his proven record of actually handling all of these concerns…”
“We need to protect our democracy from those who think it’s wrong to make sure voters can legally vote and are against billions being spent by big banks, tech, and pharma oligarchs to simply install their preferred candidates…”
Who’s been the agressor here?
What Putin wanted, originally, was a promise that Ukraine would not join NATO.
Can we see why?
NATO has not expanded by military conquest.
Putin is the aggressor here.
Putin launched a murderous assault on a neighboring nation.
Putin is the asshat who crossed a border with tanks and started killing people.
Ah, typical cowardly Comrade Greggie; when he can’t back up the claims he/she/it made on one thread, he/she/it moves to another thread.
Of course Putin has all the goods on the Biden Crime Family. But Joey Softserve Biden is in Delaware (again) this weekend so he can be pumped full of drugs to get him through the next week.
And being the President’s handler (especially when the president is demented) is tough. Just ask Ron Klain.
Just the goose steppers MO, that and comment without reading the article, lest his brain expand beyond CNN
Clint Ehrlich thinks God uses him as an instrument. Call me skeptical.
But wait! There’s more!
This Pro-Trump “Fact-Checking” Website Is Run By An American In Russia
Yep. You guessed it! That guy would be Clint Ehrlich.
Uh, what are you even blathering about?
Democrats/Leftists created “fact-checking” as a pro-Left propaganda scheme. They pretend to check facts then they are just making sure the lies stick, or the truths are obscured.
That’s all, junior. Carry on.
You kinda missed the point that the Twitter post is from a Moscow-based Trump supporter. Or maybe you didn’t. It’s probably just not the sort of thing you want to talk or think about about, given what Putin is doing.

Because Buzzfeed says so. In 2017. OK.
The Nazi’s seem to be running the show
Funny thing about “conquest” is that it doesn’t matter how you did it.
NATO, China, and the EU have conquered other spaces by way of just paying for it.
Plausible deniability isn’t going to save you pigs.
And why are you worried? Zelensky just signed a deal to institute a social credit system, regulate crypto, and use the diia system for tracking citizens and putting down dissidents…ahem…I mean tracking “covid”.
Funny how this “invasion” is serving the globalist pigs as they centralize government, literally conquering the globe with threats, withholding of aid, and power-plays.
Mariupol is surrounded in 3 sectors, The water cut off to Crimea has been restored after explosives experts cleared the hydro dam. The media never speaks of the refugees that escape into russian taken areas. Looks like the Nazis will lose again. Zelensky slow at negotiations with a less than 30% approval before the russian mission he doesnt love his people nor GAF about civilian bloodshed.

It seems like the US had a small part in the development of the missile…
Oh boy lets send more aid! Can we send the few Neo Nazis in this country there one way ticket to fight for this guy?If they cant fight they can pose as glad bag covered bodies.
