Breaking News: Chris Hayes just said that there is a "fire fight" at nuke plant, not just a fire.

Also that Biden was talking to Zelensky right now. It was also considered breaking news.

1. The Russians were shelling the plant AND firing on the firefighters trying to put out the fire.

But firefighters have now been allowed in. See my two threads about tweets from NEXTA.

2. This is the red line

Accounts I've read on Twitter imply they are heavily damaging it.
This is the largest nuclear power plant in Europe.
If it goes critical it could kill thousands and make millions sick.

I lived in Europe during the Chernobyl disaster and despite being thousands of miles away we were still impacted by the fallout.

NATO cannot allow them to cause a nuclear disaster.

12. Reactors are supposed to go critical

Thatís how they make power. Critical means the chain reaction is steady and power is steady. In power reactors, critical is normal and good. I am sure those reactors are shut down and wonít be taken critical until the invaders are gone and any damage repaired.

What you should be worried about is if it loses all cooling to the fuel.

How is NATO supposed to stop them, exactly?

We are maybe close to halfway between Austin and San Antonio.

Wish I was sitting next to my Grandmother again on that front porch swing.

That was a comfort last time.

We have picky eaters here so apple is neutral filling also.

The sausage for the pig in blankets comes from our neighbor's smokehouse

He had to make extra for him.

All day job.

But worth it.

33. We used to love to stop in West when my in-laws were alive.

They lived in Fort Worth, we lived in Austin at the time. What a treat to stop at the Czech bakery.

It's too bad it's so labor intensive, although I guess if it were more available, I'd be in trouble. Hard to pass up.

Putin isn't directly giving the orders for this. This is some idiot commander on the ground with probably no idea what he's hitting.

All all them in Canada.

My cousin came to have some surgery and welcome two great grandchildren.

I blame Trump for a lot of this.

15. Putin is freaking out, as everything is failing for him, and he needs NATO to join in the fight.

.

I believe if a NATO country attacks another, the mutual defense clause does not kick in.

I think that only kicks in if a NATO country is attacked first.

This monster is enjoying every minute of the chaos and devastation he is causing.

Failing? I don't see that at all. The Russian attack appears to be clumsy but in the end they will annihilate Ukraine. Install Russian friendlies in every city and his puppet in Kyiv.

26. Yep. Change must come from within Russia. Soon, when all are against Russia they must ask why.

.

When 90% of the countries are against Russia's actions. If China and India join in, that's something that cannot be refuted, no matter how much propaganda Putin throws at them. Instituting Martial Law will just amplify the growing distrust in Putin.


If a foreign nation tries to take him out, that would be calamitous.

They can cut off power to the population. I doubt they're trying to destroy it. It makes more sense to control it.

People can snap.

One of my Uncles help liberate one of the death camps in WW2.

The American soldiers were so angry that they shot a lot the German soldiers at the camp.

Line them up against a wall and shot them.

My Uncle who could speak German spoke to them first.

Things happen.

The war is only going to get worse.

41. If there is a sudden radiation leak

It wonít care who is in its path. Maybe Putin can cover it jp for a while, but at some point word will filter back into Russia.

I think Putinís miscalculations may earn him the same fate as Julius Caesar. Theyíd never admit it public, of course. Theyíd say he slipped and fell on a pin cushion, and give him a heroís funeral. Thatís how itís done there.
