    Yeah, Poland fears a Russian invasion. The rest of Europe does not, right?
    Sending money and aid to Ukraine is actually a way to defend NATO and save money. It is a cheaper way to do it.

    Seems like that would be an affront to you.

    How so?

    But you said ...

    "The deal is the NATO countries will spend 2 % of GDP on the military. If they fall short, assuming the 1.9 is an egregious shortage, we do not pay more."

    Subsidized how? By defense spending and NATO funding?

    Whether the EU can defend itself alone against Russia is up for debate. You proclaiming it does not make it true. Ukraine only exists today because of the West's support. That is undeniable.

    Allies support each other, especially against common enemies. I'm quite sure you would sit on a park bench and watch your best friend or wife get beaten to death, but honorable people defend their circle.

    Then you completely broke from reality again and went on some delusional tangent about human migration, which is an issue for your therapist and pharmacist, not me.

    Still feel this many people are engaged in such a conspiracy?
    He does. The cult thinks that a deep state and a corrupt judiciary and sinister elected officials and baby-blood-drinking vampire Democrats and the Ghost of Christmas Past have conspired to bully Trump because he's so strong and rich and manly and perfect.

    There is no longer any hope for the drones like Bigdog. Their delusion is full blown clinical grade.

    Yes, and Chamberlain in particular should be credited with three specific calls that he made and persuaded his cabinet to agree to:


    • Invest in fighter defence over strategic bombers, against the RAF’s own wishes. Chamberlain didn’t subscribe to the Trenchard philosophy of strategic bombing (which in turn came from Douhet), and advocated for the RAF to have a defensive strategy. He also believed fighters were cheaper than bombers, which was no small part of his motivation! Pressure from Chamberlain in particular was one of the reasons for the formation of RAF Fighter Command in 1936.
    • Invest in single-seat fighters, particularly the Spitfire, over other types, like turret fighters (a design that one W.S. Churchill was a big advocate of). Chamberlain even spoke about the need for single seat fighters in the commons in May 1938, and had advocated their prioritisation even earlier when he was Chancellor of the Exchequer. No doubt he was getting technical advice from somewhere, but he made the right call.
    • Munich. For all the negative things that can be said about the Munich Agreement, it gave Britain, and the RAF in particular, time to grow its air defences. At the time of Munich, Fighter Command had just 25 squadrons, but by the eve of the Battle of Britain, they had 58, and even more importantly, because of Chamberlain’s earlier pushes for the creation of shadow factories, the British were out-producing the German aircraft industries (which is even more impressive when you realise a Spitfire took three times as many man-hours to make as a Bf 109…)

    Chamberlain himself wrote to his sister in July 1940 and said, “If I am personally responsible for deficiencies in tanks and guns, I must equally be responsible for the effeciency of the RAF”, and he wasn’t far wrong.

    Quora is as reliable as JPP is. You may as well post a picture of turds floating in a toilet and tell us what you think it means.

    Fucking idiot, I also posted an article from the New Statesman, shit for brains. I am minded to just put you on ignore, it's clear you have absolutely no idea. I could post many more but what's the point, it would just be another case of pearls before swine.

    Did Neville Chamberlain create the conditions for the RAF to win the Battle of Britain?

    Subsidize them by providing them the vast majority of their military defense.

    No debate. The Ukraine invasion exposed the weakness of the Russian military. The idea that Russian tanks can just roll across Europe has been proven wrong.

    Unvetted foreigners are being dumped by white libs into minority communities. Don't doubt me.
