Sending tanks and using them as a spearhead aimed at Crimea, is extremely risky given the massive superiority Russia has in all kinds of artillery, not to mention their airforce.
Fish. Barrel. Shooting. Comes to mind.
It's gambling, in the sense of Russian Roulette, where the revolver is loaded with nuclear armed missiles.
What exactly do the Urkainians get out of attacking Crimea? It's not as if the inhabitants are ethnic Ukrainians. Far from it. But I suppose our truly ghastly media will spin this suicidal attack as... 'liberation.'
Incidentally I heard the BBC correspondent squirming around, I particularly enjoy that, trying to put a positive spin on the Human Rights Watch report about the use of cluster, anti-personnel mines against civilian targets, towns and vilages in Donbas, against it would appear, their own people, which the BBC squirmed around akwardly. He chose to quickly move away from the 'akwardness'and talk about Russian 'atrocities' instead.
