    Putin threatens wwIII? or just more propaganda?

    So their alleging in a private meeting putin threatened to invade not only Kiev, but multiple other NATO states... Frankly I think its bs (I don't think he said this, as it would hurt him in negotiations) this would certainly ignite wwIII and I don't think he's that crazy...

    What do you think?

    Can't see that the claim is substantiated in the link. And yes, it would be clearly a ridiculous notion.
    Killing one person is murder, killing 100,000 is foreign policy

    It was widely reported last week, when he made the claim. He said, basically, that he could take the capitals of the Balkans and the Baltic states in two days if he wanted to, during an interview about Ukraine peace talks. I don't think it was a threat of intended action, as much as a boast of what he felt they could do if they wanted to, so in comparison to take Kiev, Ukraine would be a walk in the park. It was just Putin peeing an a rock to mark his territory like a feral dog and rattle his sabre during the peace talks to be an arrogant bully. Nothing more, IMHO.
    Everything in your life is a reflection of a choice you have made. If you want a different result, don't blame someone else, or expect others to make a change, you should stop complaining and make a different choice. Remember, the circumstances of your birth don't determine the outcome of your life.

    They say allegedly multiple times. Wouldn't call that "substantiated" by any means.

    My question was more if he actually said it, or if its just western propaganda. I would go with the latter, as I don't think he is that insane, and that sort of speech during a peace talk does not help him, as these actions would force NATOs hand in that region, including Ukraine. It would not give him any advantage in negotiations, and probably hurt him imo...

    It happened. He said it; Let me google that for you.

    That's my point isn't it. He did not say it in public. Their is no record of him saying. Just other ppl with a vested interest in making him look crazy saying he did.a

    Did not know that, but it does seem to be the source of the story in english (or maybe the telegraph) which as @beaudreaux said was picked up by multiple other MM news sources. So are you saying he did not (I would agree with you if you did, that's kinda my whole point...)
