If some are looking for a more nuanced, interesting take on the conflict...

Ukraine capture an intact T-90M Russian tank. Their most advanced.
American military will be swarming all over this if they don't already have one.

I think this will pause until 2023 now, while the Russians integrate their reserves and wait for the ground to freeze.

Of note is the fact their reservists go to fill out units with pre-existing equipment. So Ukraine also has 3-4 months to congure up hundreds of thousands of troops, thousands of vehicles etc. Not sure from where but...

A bit of a moot point though, the cash is running out and they need to settle. The looming Western financisl crisis will cut off support.

You should get yourself on Telegram, Twitter, or something. There's no pause happening the troops are being rounded up as we speak... yes, even at this hour of the morning. BYOB's - Booze, bullets and boots. The TicTok Chechens already looted all the good stuff.

Makhachkala, Russia - North Caucasus region, population about 575,000... well, minus 8 to 10 busloads of military aged males now, I guess.

Mongolia must be really nice this time of year? https://twitter.com/i/status/1572820087802839040

One of these photos is a Russian Military Recruitment center. The other is Moscow Airport yesterday afternoon, before they ordered the airlines to stop selling tickets to military aged males.

Imagine being this callus and flippant with a trigger mechanism on a conventional time bomb in a school.

"It's just a bluff this thing is a dud!"

If your kid was at that school, would a 1% chance it was NOT a bluff be acceptable?

Now apply this to GLOBAL THERMONUCLEAR WAR and here you are saying "meh" and daring someone whose country is being threatened and whose LIFE is being threatened to defend themselves while you kill his citizens by proxy.

Literal insanity.

What gives you the right to play with the lives or every person on the planet like it's a flipping game?

Who gave you such right?

SHAME.

This was before liberals were bathed in almost 6 years of Cold-War level Russiagate hysteria and propaganda on all fronts.

Now they are literally advocating for World War Three while using recycled cups and driving Teslas.

Where has the anti war left gone?

Yet another prominent Russian has died in the face of growing numbers of oligarchs and important Russian men dying after this illegal war.

Zelensky IS Putin's war
Canada, Europe and USA governments giving "Putin's war" a standing ovation - not one of them talked about
negotiating peace. Every one of them started flushing $billions down the Ukraine drain, that went to war profiteers. and people slaughtered. Western governments love "Putin's" war.

ZELENSKY STARTED IT
I don't support Putin's war.

When the war-monkey Zelensky got 150,000 Ukrainians prepared to attack and genocide the Ukrainians in Donbass and Lugansk - he started the "Putin's" war. The war was actually started in 2014, when snipers in Kiev killed 70 people and Soros became happy, saying "that was the birth of the new Ukraine."

I don't support Putin's war. Stop flushing $billions into "Putin's" war.

Ugh yes, the old "Elders of Zion" rears its ugly head once again.

Soros, a Jewish holocaust survivor, is part of an evil plot to take over the world. He's so good at it, that he managed to have his sniper's infiltrate Maidan Square while Putin's plant, Viktor Yanukovych, had mobilized 4000 Berkut (special riot police), 1000 Tiger special forces, Internal Troops of Ukraine, and Secret Service of Ukraine, and 4000 SBU Alpha Group and Titushky officers.

Not a single "Soros" sniper was caught. That's how good he is.


Seriously, antisemitism just won't die. :-X The post above follows the Protocols of the Elders of Zion, written by Stalin's agent in *checks notes*... Moscow 1903.

George Soros, the Hungarian-born billionaire behind the globalist open borders Open Society Foundation, has been named the second-most influential figure in Ukraine according to a prominent Russian-language Ukrainian newspaper.

The Kyiv-based newspaper points out that, “through the organizations financed by him, Soros can influence economic and political life in all of Ukraine.”

The paper writes that Soros, who is known for his active involvement in Ukraine’s economic and political life for more than 20 years, maintains a unique position of power through the Open Society Foundation and the dozens of other organizations he funds in the country.

:up:

Now why would he be that important to Ukraine, I wonder? But I like the youtube comments on the lizard-like guy.
This from a man that said he has no concern to how his financial wheeling and dealing effects the people of the countries in which he operates.
His hypocrisy is beyond comprehension. This guy has had a hand in what’s wrong with much of the western world.
Open society? He has a 6-8 meter tall wall at home around the house.
Someone downstairs is eagerly waiting for George to expire.
