    Just as trump did w/N.Korea, Putin must realize by now that threatening nuke attacks gets largely ignored.

    They will run out of arms, Ukraine wont. Remember when this was supposed to be a walk in the park, 3 days at the most?

    Casualties among Russian and pro-Russian forces are mounting at an unsustainable rate in Ukraine, British intelligence reports, raising more questions about the extent to which Moscow can maintain its current pace of operations amid limited progress on the battlefield.

    It only appears that way because the Soviet Union collapsed. So yeah, capitalism and democracy won.

    Their socialist form of gov't resulted in utter failure. At Yalta, FDR set up a political experiment, the war of Socialism vs. Capitalism. And despite being handed a vast empire after ww2, Russia lost that war and their empire, IMO.

    At Yalta, Britain was stripped of its empire.

    Wow - what a post.

    I mean, it's hard to believe that the Ukrainians don't just love Russia.

    I hope this dumbass doesn't think he can invade a NATO country like the Baltic's?!! Russian is no match against NATO, just look at their performance in Ukraine?!! They would have to use nukes, and that's game over?!! I'm surprise no one in Russia has put a bullet in his head yet?!! He is not a stable person, just like Trump is?!!

    You are parroting Kremlin propaganda.

    Finland, Estonia and Latvia are closer to Moscow than Kyiv is, and Finland is within easy striking distance of Saint Petersburg, and Murmansk which happens to be where Russia's most important fleet and naval resources are.

    At the NATO summit, Biden will establish a parament U.S. base in Poland, and bolster the Baltic with new weapons and troops?!!

    Im not talking about "Kyiv" im talking about Ukraine as a whole
    Finland already had a robust defense, Sweden really isnt a concern except for the Arctic
    where Russia and China have vast advantages in extraction and a possible Great Northern route.

    It's just more NATO expansion. The difference is Russia no longer needs the west.
    It's selling all it needs to China and India
    This is what you always leave out in your Russiaphobic attacks.

    We screwed ourselves -we created a Frankenstein of Russian weapons savvy
    and Chinese money united to form a most formidable foe.

    Nixon figured out triangulation long ago to prevent this very scenario.
    We threw that away despite Obama's wise Russia reset while the idiot Biden not even trying to stop the war,
    and the State security apparatus ran wild with Russian games

    It's a brave new world, and we disadvantaged ourselves with typical arrogance.
    we are now the odd man out side of Europe

    To a huge degree we fucked ourselves.

    well the trillions we wasted in the ME wars, or turning Libya into a failed terrorist infested state
    hurt us.
    Then the rout in Afghan left a lot of weapons we could use elsewhere

    But i see your exact point - yes.
    getting rid of Saddam simply left Iran as the major player and turned Iraq into a colony of Iran

    now our new hot war with Russia is going to leave a very unstable situation -
    Biden just sent more troops to eastern Europe -forces we need for the Pacific
    China is the big winner, and can be Russia's protectorate - while Russian advanced weapons tech
    bolster China in the Pacific

    where do you think China got it's orbiting hypersonic missile from? - Russia
