I feel bad for the Russian oligarchs who are getting canceled and having their yachts ceased. Their plight is certainly one of the great injustices of this conflic. It too reminds me of the blue-collar truck drivers in Canada who saw their bank accounts ceased by the Canadian government.

Russian Oligarchs and Canada Truck Drivers unit!

Once Russia surrenders? you played to many video games.



Is that supposed to be some sort of insult?

Pretty weak.

I don't really play any video games other than Mario Cart with the Grandkids.

Do love me some Mario Cart though!




Yes.

I said russia will surrender.

I knew exactly how crazy it sounded when I first said it almost a week ago, and know exactly how crazy it sounds now.

It IS what I see coming, and have specific reasons for having a high confidence in that assessment.

No country can absorb what russia is facing for long, and russia certainly isn't one of the best positioned to even try.



russia WILL surrender.

The only remaining questions are timing, final death count, and the amount of destruction russia will cause before surrendering.

Meanwhile, average Russian citizens – no matter what they think about the attack on Ukraine – are being hit by Western sanctions imposed on them

Russian citizens aren't the only ones sanctions are hitting. American business has already taken the opportunity to jack up the prices on everything.


Americans have heard that everyone is interconnected, but they have never felt it...but we will in a big way.

All because 81 million people did not like mean tweets.

There goes "PayPal" also.

Not sure how many Russian Oligarchs use that method of payment all the same, but it does not seem to bode well for the average Dzhozef.

It will create a blowback for the west. The more innocent Russians who suffer because of western sanctions, the more Putin can say "I told you so". That will strengthen the position of Putin and weaken the position of the west, in regards to Russians. They will not even need to lie about the west's hatred of Russia, because Russians are experiencing it first hand.

Innocent Russians are being targeted though. Regular people like us, are the ones who are getting hit the hardest by these sanctions. Even businesses in the US with Russian owners are being targeted by the mob bigots. It's not right, and it's not fair. How can the west claim any moral high ground when they are indiscriminately targeting people based purely on their nationality? It's bigotry and it's xenophobia.

Seems to me your blaming the wrong people. The west as you put it is simply breaking contact with a maniacal dictator. You can't expect other countries in the world to continue to do business and support the government that is creating a humanitarian crisis. This falls on Putin he is creating suffering in Russia and Ukraine. The innocent Russians suffer because of their government not because the west did anything. You cannot expect anyone to support Putin or his government he has shown just how untrustworthy he is.

If you feel the sanctions are unfair or the companies that decide to pull out of Russia aren't fair. What about the Ukrainians is it fair that Russian soldiers entered their country killing their friends and family. Russian government created this problem and only they can solve it by withdrawing from Ukraine and reimbursing them for the damage they caused then maybe the west will be willing to work with Russia again. Until then Putin can enjoy the same status as North Korea

You cant expect countries to want to work with a country that has no respect for its neighbors and raping and killing civilians. No one is going to want to spend money to support that.

This is why business neutrality was so important. Corporations can rule over us now, and I know none of us voted for them. And when they move at the bidding of governments in world affairs, it gets even more dangerous. First they came for Trump and no one cared because everyone hated mean Tweets, now they're banning an entire country, and no one cares because that country is invading Ukraine, but tomorrow, who will they be after and which of us won't be able to buy things we need for ourselves and our families?

I've read this in a book, and this part comes in the final chapter.

I completely agree; how can the west claim any moral high ground in this conflic between Russia and the Ukraine while innocent Russians suffer from the economic consequences of their governments choices?

It's completely wrong of the west to decided who they are willing to do business with and who they are not. In a bid to maintain the moral high ground the west should have no say in who they choose to do business with; they should be compelled (through government force) to do business with everyone equally.

It's not a matter of business choice, but when business acts on the level of government or at government behest.

The battle lines are being drawn, quite literally.

There is no room for moderate and reasoned conversation of all sides of the dispute anymore.

Everyone is being pushed to not only despise Putin, but everything Russian, vodka, Russian companies, Russian athletes. Alarm bells should be going off in people's heads.

Agreed; how do you propose to compel western companies to do business with Russia and all other countries equally?

Should we provide tax incentives to companies that agree to do business with innocent Russians? Should we enact penalties for those that do not? Perhaps when a company files it's taxes they should have to prove that they have engaged every country of the world proportional to that countries GDP. That way we can be sure no innocents are harmed in other countries no mater what is happening with that country geopolitically.

Exactly worth repeating if the only countries backing you is North Korea and Belarus you might e on the wrong side of the issue, The world is not only shocked but letting Putin know this is unacceptable. They are committing war crimes of course countries are going to stand against that.
