There are reports of an assassination attempt on Putin but I can't find it again.

I have a start of all the oligarchs who have died in another thread but I'll put this here. 11 high ranking Russian businessmen are known to have died, I mean one guy threw himself out of a hospital window? Really?

I don't know if this guy is included in the 11 but he apparently died of a stroke with signs of suffercating.

About as believable as Epstein hanging himself I guess.

Think there were any woman or children around when they drone striked these guys? Oops, sorry, wrong evil empire, my bad.

If you were Putin and you got word that a large group of fighters from NATO countries was in a significant concentration but your low on troops and equipment in the area to counter it.... How tempted would you be to use a few tactical nukes to solve problems quick?

Has Russia deployed its naval or air assets to any degree? Nope. Too expensive to lose. That's why they invested in a obscene amount of tactical nukes in case a situation kinda like this arises.
Some may view my politically incorrect opinions as harsh and may be offended by them. Some think political correctness will be our undoing.

I could see Zelensky consenting to a false flag nuclear attack if this goes on. He is rapidly running out of leverage with the west.

BoJo said it best but didnt finish the thought:

"Putin must be seen to lose, and lose badly"
Because if not "we in the west will be seen to lose badly and lose our legitimacy"

... and another one. ---> https://twitter.com/i/status/1571233267751215104

Meanwhile, in the south some heavy fighting being observed in Kherson. There's some speculation it may be units of the Russian Military fighting each other, but that remains to be seen. (It wouldn't be the first time - https://news.yahoo.com/report-drunk-rus ... 18057.html , or even the second time... https://www.express.co.uk/news/world/16 ... ar-updates )

Okay, it's been a week. What do you have for us?

:biggrin:

Putin's big national televised speech tonight was a bust.

There's some speculation on Russian Media Monitor channels. (They said the quiet parts out loud, with regard to their international mobilization plan, and it caused some eye rolls. Even with the propaganda pundits on Russia One.)

Another angle perhaps?

Uhhh, that I was right? The consensus being amongst most serious military observers, West and Russian, that this was a planned Russian withdrawal. And Ukraine took heavy casualties.

And Putin's speech is now out, along with the referendum decisions.

So what are we gonna do about it?

Vlady is threatening to use a nuclear weapon on the Ukraine. The winds aloft on Friday of this week will be from the east and blow the fallout over Europe. Usually the flow is from the west or southwest which would blow the fallout back over Russia, but Friday is the rare flow from the east. Just saying.

Whats becoming clear is there are 2 proxy armies fighting - the West's Ukrainians and Russia's Ukrainians. Russia is now reinforcing their side. Curious what theyll do, would assume its to bolster their current lines and defend while they incorporate the new territories.

I see Biden issued a firm denunciation... ouch, thats gotta sting Putin i bet

If you're a Russian convict sitting in the can on a murder or rape conviction, it's only 6 months and you're a free man. Hundreds took the offer. If you're an international wingnut, looking for the opportunity to become a citizen of the "axis of the new world order" it's a year before your contract is up. Either way, turn tail and you get shot. Get liquidated by a Himar and your family barely gets a down payment on a new Lada. (Seat belts, airbags and stereo head not included.)

There is currently a 35 km lineup to the border between Finland and Russia. It's the only open border for Russians with Schengen Visas. Flights out of Russia sold out after Putin orders partial call-up. You should see some of the prices.

Can you imagine all the howls and speculation if Joe Biden's Whitehouse had booked all the national TV stations for a live speech at 8:00 pm, didn't show and then delivered a prerecorded statement that looked like it had been edited by a 70-year-old on Adobe Premiere Elements, the following morning?

Oh well, who doesn't love Swan Lake?

It's a special military operation, not an invasion. It's a defensive move, not aggression. It's a partial military mobilization, not a full mobilization.

In a country that has compulsorily military service. [icon_lol2.gif]

Sure, the rich kids in Moscow were able to buy their records and never actually attended any of the training, but the records say...

Watching them freak out in Russia, so far one girl dead in Moscow. They're not protesting the war, they are fine with the war, as long it's the poor people from the countryside fighting it.

Lucky for these guys the Wagner group will be able to liberate them from the Gulag and they'll still be able to go to Ukraine.
