But then again Putin is borderline insane and under huge personal pressure now so who knows ?


That's part of the worry.... the "who knows" part. No one at the moment can say with certainty.

How DO you stop him? We all need to know this, seriously. I want to go back to binge watch Netflix. All this is exhausting.

Trust me, I'll NEVER forget about ccp.

Murdered my best friend and his entire extended family personal.

Think I'll ever quit?

It will happen, but there is more going on than what seems. I am a Falun Gong practitioner, so I am well aware of things. Like I said, it wasn't directed at you, just the general populace who couldn't be bothered before Ukraine. They need to wake up and see that there is always a reason to expose evil and not aid it whenever possible -- even when you could get rich doing otherwise.

Falun Dafa Hao!

Why TF is everyone always so unwilling to also "cancel" China?


No one's forgiving China their sins, but lets be realistic, China doesn't have armament trained on civilians in Japan claiming Japan is theirs. When they do, they will face equal cancellation im sure.

As far as Taiwan China isn't making a move against Taiwan, i dunno, maybe the former President should have rallied Europe and NATO...... oh wait....


Just to be blunt, why does it matter whether the people not wanting to be murdered/genocided are inside or outside of their borders before sanctions?

Anyway, not wanting to derail, just people need to think hard about this as well.

While everybody is again looking at the big picture, Im looking at the rest of the details in it.

I'd kiiiiinda like to know why the Florida peninsula & southern Atlantic coast is on that invasion map pic, top left Zoom in, it's easy to overlook.

Well to be fair there is the US Army Cav patch on the right side. Maybe they pulled that big map out of the Cracker Jack box they found.

U.S. Sees Evidence of Morale Problems Among Russian Troops in Ukraine

The U.S. is seeing evidence of “fairly slow and stodgy progress” and morale issues among Russian forces on the ground in Ukraine – and even some cases of troops surrendering “sometimes without a fight.”

A senior defense official, speaking to reporters Tuesday on background, noted that the Russian forces are relying mostly on conscripts – or draftees – and not all volunteers and are “none too pleased about the logistics and sustainment challenges they've had.” There is even evidence that convoys, in addition to running out of gas, are now also running out of food, the official added.

“I think the Russians have been surprised by the resistance that they have faced,” the official said. “I think the Russians have been surprised by some of the morale problems that they're experiencing … Was it failure of planning and pre-positioning or has it been a failure in the execution? There could be lots of reasons for this, not to mention the resistance.”

The official said a significant number of Russian forces could be characterized as “very young men” and that “not all of them are apparently fully trained and prepared or even aware that they were going to be sent into a combat operation.” That wasn’t necessarily a surprise to U.S. military analysts, the official noted, given the high percentage of draftees in the Russian army.

The intelligence seems consistent with information released by Ukrainian security officials in recent days about the Russian forces.

Russia has now committed more than 80% of its “pre-staged combat power” to Ukraine, according to the official. Attacks, however, intensified on the sixth day of the invasion with a new push against civilian areas and government buildings thought to be aimed at demoralizing the Ukrainian resistance. One shelling targeted a government building in the central square of Ukraine’s second-largest city Kharkiv and prompted backlash that includes accusations of terrorism.

what you said was misleading at best. If you mean something, then say it. Short and to the point; yet, your 3rd comment on it is incoming I have no doubt.. by the way, that was quite the overreaction for a simple factual correction. I bet you're a blast at parties.

Su-27 Returning From Romania Will Likely Be The Last Fighter Ukraine Gets For Some Time


A Sukhoi Su-27 Flanker belonging to the Ukrainian Air Force has left Romania on its way back to its war-torn home. The aircraft landed in Romania on February 24 for unknown reasons. The jet's return comes as a proposed plan for European Union nations to donate dozens of fighter aircraft to Ukraine has been confirmed as a non-starter for the nations involved.

...

Romania’s Ministry of Defense said today that the Su-27 left Romania at the request of Ukrainian authorities and that it was unarmed when it departed. It was escorted to the country's border with Ukraine by two Romanian Air Force MiG-21 Lancer fighter jets. Once it crossed into Ukraine, the Flanker then met up with two unspecified Ukrainian Air Force aircraft.

...

It’s still unknown why the Su-27 flew to Romania, but it’s possible the aircraft was unable to return to its home base after coming under Russian attack, or that its base was under siege at the time. It may be that Romania’s 95th Air Base was the nearest diversion airfield at the time and that others were recovered elsewhere within Ukraine’s borders. Other unconfirmed reports state that the aircraft's communications were disabled, while others claim the pilot attempted to defect. These are all certainly possibilities, but there is still no official statement as to why the Su-27 made its way to Romania.

...

While the return of the Su-27 is no doubt a welcome addition to the Ukrainian Air Force as Russia continues its assault on the country, the European Union’s (EU) proposed plan to send additional aircraft to Ukraine stalled today


Very well written article. It's too long to post it all here but it is worth the time spent reading it.

I heard about this Ukrainian Flanker heading to Romania, but it was silence after that. I wonder if the pilot defected to Romania and the Romanians wanted to get a good look at the Flanker before sending it back. Romania still has the armament that the Flanker came over with. It will be returned via other means.

I get what your saying but no..... im freakishly highly intuitive... and im saying this stinks to high hell. Definately not just a cigar! Especially if countries like swiss are taking sides.

I think its a mistake to corner putin, he has only one way to go and if you stop him he will have no choice but to escalate.


Hey who knows, in my 40 years of being into conspiracy ive become jaded with it all, i was never a both feet in kinda guy to begin with but (70% sceptic first), to me personally the whole NWO, shadow government (as conspiracy tends to paint it) just isnt a thing. But hey, could be wrong...

Im just sticking to as much reality when it comes to a war (or any war) like this, its already way to surreal as it is lol. Also consider going to much into potential woowoo land (not that what you said was on that level) is a bit bad taste given people on both sides are dying for no reason.

personally i say push Putin into launching nukes... for the main reason im confident enough in the Russia military and its people that said order would be completely ignored and Putin would be immediately 'removed' from office because of it. Give the guy the last piece of rope so to speak.
