I still maintain, based on everything we are seeing and hearing from Russia - from their own mouth's in their own media - that Putin is desperate.


And I agree.

Sure.. the US will do that when Russia takes that advice. Since I dont see that as likely, here we are.

My point of my response, btw, was to point out the Soviet Union / Russia are not angels (and neither is the US). Those were not the only 2 countries who did those things.

We are seeing a culmination of back and forth F'ery over a puppet state.

West Ukraine, US interests. East, Russian. Kyiv, former soviet seat and epicenter of the corruption.

You said Putin is desperate, and id agree. However long game, russia can afford to be patient but putin may not. Yet another complication.

As ive stated, there is no justification for the invasion.
My hope is that folks see the clear line to WMDs especially when it defaults to the govt narrative.

No we are seeing Russia lie in order to invade Ukraine - respectfully.

There are no WMD's in Ukraine. However, with the Russian invasion Ukraine has commented about returning to nuclear weapons.

Ukraine has also proved another point. Ukraine is quite capable of defending itself against Russia. It is still their right to determine their own affairs and affiliations though. If anything Russia has once again pushed countries towards NATO because Putin is stuck in the 1980's.

Apparently, quite a few are buying Lavrov's lies.

Fortunately, no one who matters.

Dont joke Ukraine was the backbone of the Soviet Union Most of their tech came from there. That's why even still today they produce rockets and jet engines. It's not beyond their capabilities to make a nuke and launch system. This is why Russia played the wrong card here they are creating an enemy that in the long run could be very dangerous.

600 people dont make up the entire Ukrainian Army so either learn and get your facts right or dont comment to spread more bs.

wtf about that is BS?

Its right there in black and white.. from a Ukrainian source

In a notable letter signed by 40 USA House Democrats and addressed to the Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, they ask why certain “white supremacist groups” including the Ukrainian Azov Battalion, were not included on the Foreign Terrorist Organizations (FTO) list.
The battalion has become a media darling to western journalists, being depicted as ultranationalists, Neo-Nazis, Ukraine’s greatest weapon, and everything in between. In Ukraine, however, it is respected for its discipline, high battle morals, and effectiveness in protecting the city of Mariupol from the onslaught of Russian-backed militants from the puppet “republics” in the east. It has also gained controversy due to its inclusion of far-right internationals. But is this part of Ukraine’s army “connected to recent terrorist attacks around the world as well as recruiting and influencing American citizens” as the letter says?

Are you saying the Azov battalion wont get any of those weapons?

Well, the fact that we're not going to deny all of Ukraine logistical supprt because there's a couple thugs who are, also, fighting for their countries' survival.

The Link isn't BS....the rhetoric is, the framing is, the propensity to want to further the cause of an autocrat is.

All the "the invasion was unjustified but"'s doesn't absolve anyone from doing exactly the above. One either denounces totalitarianism tyrannical rule, or they do not.
