#vladimirputin We have seen our retirement funds and other investments drop in value. Even billionaires have seen big market losses. The conventional wisdom is that fear of inflation is depressing financial markets worldwide.
I have a contrarian view. I call it "The Fear of Vladimir Putin stock market." The Ukraine war has "turned the world on its ear." Energy markets have been disrupted. Food markets have been disrupted. Commodity markets have been disrupted. The New York Times came out with an Op-Ed yesterday pointing out all the awful things that Vladimir Putin can still do as he becomes a cornered wild animal.
This man is simply a bully and a thug. If people stand up to him, they will stop him. This "superman" has failed miserably in Ukraine with 80,000 men and women killed including a massive number of senior officers in 7 months. All his armed forces have failed. His Air Force cannot carry out serious combat operations because they do not have proper communications systems to keep their planes from being shot down by "friendly fire." His Navy is in hiding and will not come out and fight. We see corruption ad incompetence on a grand scale. There are all sorts of reports on the deterioration of his feared nuclear arsenal. How well will it work? I think not well.
Let us go back to the Cuban missile crisis in 1962 and 1983. Mid-level Soviet officers (say Lt. Colonel) had their hands right on the keys to fire nuclear warheads. They both realized the enormity of such a move. They refused to fire. If history is any guide, the officers under Putin will not carry out the orders to fire nuclear weapons if Putin issues such orders.
If Putin does fire nuclear warheads, he will be hit by two US cyber-attacks lasting only nanoseconds. One will take his internet offline permanently. The other will take down his electricity grid for many months. (Imagine being with no electric power for 4-5 months!) Russia will break apart, as the old Soviet Union did.

Maybe ask yourself...
1) why is he being cornered?
2) is it a good idea to corner him?
3) if we corner him and he lashes out like he said he would ("there will be no world without Russia"), whose fault is it?
4) why do you think Putin is stupid?
5) do you think there's such a thing as US propaganda?

I do not claim to know the truth of things. I do know that our own government is no better than Russian government. I hope you don't end up with a transgendered son/daughter.

I'm thinking more and more that all the world is playing their part in this great play. The whole world is a stage.

Putin is not being cornered.

He is being asked to give back the land he stole from his sovereign neighbor. No serious person agrees that Russia has any legitimate claims on Eastern Ukraine to justify the thousands of deaths and worldwide turmoil he has caused with his ham-fisted invasion. He might have been able to get away with it if he quickly toppled Kiev, but they lost this war in the first month with their military/political incompetence and now have no hope but a grinding war of attrition - that will turn into an insurgency - so now he is threatening nukes.

All of the fault belongs to Putin. He could stop this shit overnight and still have a shot of getting back into a decent relationship with the rest of the world.

Enlighten me.

What is this all about to justify thousands of needless deaths, risk of nuclear war and the total embarrassment of Russia on the world stage with their pathetic military performance?

Even if Russia manages to hang onto some bits of Eastern Ukraine, what will Putin have gained materially, economically or politically to justify the massive cost? All Putin achieved is a more united Europe, more NATO countries on Russia's borders, loss of key energy customers and hollowing out of his joke military.

Even Putin's propagandists are having difficulty polishing this turd.

The war began because the illegitimate Ukraine government wouldn’t stop shelling civilians in these breakaway regions and wiping out villages with their Nazi brigades. When Zelenskyy ordered the massive troop build up surrounding Donetsk, with intent to wipe it out for good, Putin was asked by the residents, most of who were Russian, to intervene. After a short war, the two countries were ready to charter out a peace, but Herr Biden came charging in to say “No Peace with Russia!” Then he offered the criminal Zelenskyy and his criminal cartel billions of US dollars to continue the war.

Zelenskyy and his generals have been buying up Swiss chalets worth tens of millions in preparation for the day when their scheme falls apart and they need to scamper like the rats they are.

All of this is verifiably true. Sorry if I can’t buy the fantasy that the propaganda pushers are selling. If you guys stopped to really consider it, it wouldn’t make sense to you either. Critical thinking is mandatory these days. Foolish people who just accept the propaganda as truth are destined to live short ugly lives of pain.

In other words, Putin did a full invasion of Ukraine because Ukraine would not accept losing a huge chunk of their country in the East to the previous Russian land grab. I highly doubt that Eastern Ukraine had majority Russian supporters anymore than Ukraine is run by Jewish Nazis. We have seen the sham elections this week with armed Chechen and Russian soldiers going door to door with ballots. Whatever Russian sympathetic Ukrainians were in the East are no longer there or have probably changed their minds after seeing the ineffective brutality of the Russian military.

Also, I don't recall Biden encouraging Zelensky to fight early on. Biden offered an evacuation to Zelensky in February when the war first started where Zelensky said he needs "bullets not a ride". Only after Ukraine was able to hold off the initial invasion did Biden and Europe see the light and begin major weapons shipments.

Highly doubtful - it was the Ukraine which did persistent shelling into the "breakaway" regions. It is highly likely and plausible that the majority in those regions wanted and wants to belong to Russia, whether they have a "right to belong" or not. I have known at least a few, and they were never intimated to think that way. Anecdotal evidence of course, but occams razor says putin "forcing the correct vote" in donbass/crimea militarily is a fairy tale at best, propaganda at worst. Whether it justifies what he did is doubtful as well, but it's at least understandable in the sense that it's not some erratic behavior of a madman, but a calculating leader/dictator. US/Nato did the same thing in ex-Yugoslvia/Kosovo, no questions asked or negotiations offered, just sudden warfare violating existing treaties to get the outcome they wanted.

Which wouldn't have happened if Russia didn't invade and grab the breakaway regions to begin with. Was Ukraine just supposed to sit back while Russia kept grabbing it's territory?

Again, if the Russian military were competent and pulled the invasion off in a few months with minimal loss of life - it would be a different story. It would still be an illegitimate invasion and land grab, but no one would be talking about using nukes or freezing out millions of people in Europe.

Russia's incompetence is putting the whole fucking world at risk.

Russia can not win a decisive conventional victory at this point. Long past time for them to pack up and go home. Eastern Ukraine will be a festering sore for Russia for years to come if they think they can try and hold onto it.

Putin by his own words has shown how delusional he is.
Now he’s assuming the role of General, he thinks that he’s more capable than the ones who are failing.
The West has superior weapon technology, which Russia cannot match.
Throwing another hundred thousand or so men at the 1000 km long front won’t accomplish much except death for the unwilling Russian conscripts.
Putin is using terror, not military capabilities, against Ukraine.
Bombing shopping malls, train stations, targeting civilians, etc. will not achieve conquest of Ukraine.
I’m annoyed since this fool has fucked up things for no good reason.

Putin is deranged; lately he was ranting about the “satanic west” of “anglo saxons” and how he will “smash” them.

“A man has got to know his limitations” Dirty Harry.

The tragedy is most Russians don’t hate nor resent the West any more than Ukraine people do.

He’s like Dr. Evil gazing at the map of the former Soviet Union and a tear trickles down, how he misses the good old days which are gone forever.

After the hatchet job they did on Trump, I don't believe the demonization shit about Putin, it is sheer blather as usual usual.

The Russians are no angels (obviously), but they have shifted to frankness and open explanation of their policies that are shockingly refreshing compared with the 100 percent guaranteed Satanic inversion lies of our own so-called leaders. The Russians appear as seasoned, educated statesmen relative to the shallow, greedy, destructive crooks who now are in control of the foreign occupied foreign city state of Washington DC.

Let’s answer some very simple questions for ourselves. I now want to return to what I said, I want to address all the citizens of the country – not only to those colleagues who are in the hall – to all the citizens of Russia: do we want to have, here, in our country, in Russia, parent number one, number two, number three instead of mom and dad – have they gone mad out there? Do we really want perversions that lead to degradation and extinction to be imposed on children in our schools from the primary grades? To be drummed into them that there are various supposed genders besides women and men, and to be offered a sex change operation? Do we want all this for our country and our children? For us, all this is unacceptable, we have a different future, our own future - Putin, October 1, 2022
35   clambo   2022 Oct 2, 7:43am  

gabbar is just posting the part of Putin's speech which illustrates his distaste of the West and his almost muslim mentality.

What did this rant have to do with attacking Ukraine? Nothing at all.

I remember general Ripper in "Dr. Strangelove": "They want to contaminate our precious bodily fluids!" He started nuclear war to stop the dirty commies.

I don't consume media from the USA, however it's clear that Putin has lost his sense of perspective; he actually believed Ukraine wanted to be run by Russians. Even a very casual review of the history of Ukraine would reveal they don't like that idea one bit.

Putin's behavior is deranged; it doesn't matter what you think of the man personally. It doesn't matter if you like some of his opinions on the decay of our culture caused by woke pro tranny and gay agendas by teachers.

The invasion was a dumb plan from the very beginning; you can't attempt to conquer a huge country with an army of 100,000 guiys when that country also has 100,000 guys and ADVANCED weapons which you don't possess. Worse, Russia did not have AIR SUPERIORITY. Forget the whole thing boys.

I wonder what his generals are thinking of him today. Are they going to have a coup to preserve the equipment and men they still have left?
Putin will likely send 1 million Russians to Ukraine, some with working rifles, others with who knows what equipment. They'll starve, freeze, get blown up, shot or captured in due time. What will this do politically within Russia?

Russia needs trade with the West and the West needs energy; maybe some greedy generals will decide to become new oil and gas barons since Putin did well financially while they pranced around in those silly uniforms.

I'll keep saying it, this thing was lost in the first 2 weeks. The only hope for Putin was to quickly knock out the central government in Kyiv and if Ukraine was truly full of pro-Russian people that would step in and fill the void and not have to deal with a grinding insurgency. That fantasy is so long gone at this point.

It is entirely up to Putin and Russia to stop this needless death and destruction.
37   Misc   2022 Oct 2, 9:49am  

I dunno. Nobody in the Zelensky/NATO is infallible group saw the Russian annexation coming in advance.

Putin didn't stop the gas shipments to Europe right away. No, he 1st slowed the flows and finally cut them off. Gradually increasing the pressure on Europe. Now by annexing the 4 territories, he has doubled down again. For Ukraine to "win" it now has to seize Russian territory. Does anyone even remotely think this is possible?

Do the European leaders think this is possible or even worthwhile?

Even as late as June, the Europeans were forecasting that in 2023 the European economy would increase by 1.4%. Now they are forecasting a decline of only .4%

Thei European currency is in freefall, inflation (unlike in the US) is rising, their governments are printing vast amounts of money with no end in sight and major sectors of the economy could be shutting down.

Putin still has very favorable public opinion (despite what the Western Press says) unlike the European leaders.

Yes. Have you not been watching the news? The Russian army / navy / air force sucks.

I would say that the Russian armed forces is performing about as well as it did it n the 1905 Russo-Japanese war. This 2022 war started out similar to the Soviet 1939 invasion of Finland, and is evolving into something similar to the 1919-1921 Polish-Soviet war.

chunk of their country

David Stockman recently re: the cobbled together, ad hoc, nature of 'Ukraine'-
'Aside from the historically short interval of iron-fisted communist rule during the Soviet era, Ukraine had never been a nation-state within its post-1991 happenstance borders. In fact, for upwards of 275 years before 1918 much of its territories were borderlands, vassals and outright provinces of Czarist Russia; and before that constituents of the Polish-Lithuanian Empire and others.'

Only nominally a 'country' and now, of course, ruled by thoroughly corrupted oligarchs of our choosing. I wish the fuck we could mind our own business.
Even Obama knew this shit was a bad idea.

So only Muslims support a nuclear family? I can tell you that's not true of my British/German family, or of my wife's Mexican family, who would both agree with this speech. Anyone ok with LGBT and broken homes is no friend of the United States.

As to the rest of it, you guys don't understand proxy wars very well. The point is not to win, it's to get people to accept/agree to tons of bullshit they wouldn't otherwise tolerate, and to create excuses the world's standard of living going to shit, and point things away from central bankers. It's also to launder money. And lastly, always to cause suffering. And on all these points Russia, Ukraine, Europe, and the US are all winning!

Gentlemen, meet scamdemic 2.0. If the original didn't hook you, this one definitely has. But instead of wearing masks and injecting poison, you support massive money laundering by the US without a peep, all the while arm-chairing a war in a region you know nothing about.
