Any day now Russians will give up and run away.

Thanks for posting this. I do not think it's a coincidence that The Lincoln Project had backing from powerful people who line their pockets with the profits of war.

Really, they're going after duty free shoppers now??

Maybe nobody told them that Ursula von der whatever just declared an EU energy emergency, but sure, further *bleep* off the people holding your nuts in a vise.

We live in a funny time. We are losing power and we accuse other countries we can't control for doing what we did for a couple of hundred years.

Couple hundred years ago? More like twenty or ten.

At least Putin has a plan, or, an overall objective and the plan is flexible.

Our plan, as far as i can tell, is total Russian defeat and regime change. Lots of maximalist talk anyways. And some rumblings about Bojo sabotaging peace talks in April.

Its looney tunes, but I guess so long as Ukrainians are willing to die the war goes on.

I love the counter offensive-for 6 months every time a Russian gets a flat tire its all over the internet. But the big push is "top secret", tells me they just lost a bunch more people dead.

Yes, even journalists who support Ukraine say so:

On top of it, Ukranian special forces tried to capture the nuclear plant right before UN delegation got there - I assume the plan was to hold it with less risk of Russians fighting them with UN team present. But they got completely destroyed. Oh, and UN delegation made it there.

Yeah that commando raid sounds like something else.

Looks like Russkies have turned off the taps. So let me get this straight - basically all of Europe is about to shut down its steel, cement, pulp, aluminum, chemical etc industries... and then all the follow on industries. It will be lockdown x 10. Oh, and deal with skyrocketing inflation and a developing war with Russia.

Meanwhile the US spends another 13 billion! For just Q4!
1line item was very interesting, 4.5 billion to fund the Ukrainian govt. So the yanks are now effectively bankrolling the entire Ukraine, and directing their war effort.

This is some crazy times

Me, As a sideliner here….isn’t it almost as if European countries are going to war with their own citizens who probably wanted nothing to do with the conflict in the first place?

Now those citizens get to enjoy freezing in the dark and without benefit of grandma’s home baked buns to keep them warm, because grain supplies were blocked off. And, no fuel to bake those buns

This is black comedy that even Cohen Brothers could not match
Sufficiently advanced incompetence is indistinguishable from malice. There’s a certain point at which ignorance becomes malice, at which there is simply no way to become THAT ignorant except deliberately and maliciously.

I mean, the only answers are either

1-theyre all working for the russians or
2-theyre a bunch of self serving, incompetent buffoons just hoping it blows up on the next guys shift

A German minister even said something to the effect "i dont care what my voters want, we are supporting ukraine"

Impressive...



Not sure what I like the most about this video? Is it the teddy bear? The tree trimming? The HARMS? Or maybe just the obvious question that arises...
