The only thing we know for certain is that your boy has been impotent in handling this crisis.  Putin didn't get where he is by being stupid.  The stupid people are the people that underestimated him, like your boy.
What would you have done differently?

The size of the Russian exonomy in one statistic.  
 

Top exporters of Vodka in 2020
  • Sweden - 22% of the world exports ($397 million)
  • France - 17.6% ($317 million)
  • Russia - 8.3% ($149 million)
  • Poland - 7.92% ($142 million)
  • Netherlands - 5.51% ($99 million)
Poland is virtually tied with them on the only thing they are.famous for, well down in third place.

He's been digging this hole for a while.

Nobody doubles then triples down on stupidity like the jerker.
Yeah, I wonder if it would have been better if the civilians already owned those weapons and developed some level of proficiency in using them rather than learning day of.  

You guys are so smart here at PA, it is awe inspiring.

I have prevouisly fought in this war. It was not easy.
It's rarely easy to convince someone raised in a suburb somewhere north of Ann Arbor that our attacks are are made of actual bombs that blow apart actual children.

It's a little bit easier to convince someone raised in a suburb somewhere north of Ann Arbor that THEIR attacks are made of actual bombs that blow apart actual children.

So hopefully guys like you will get those raised in a suburb somewhere north of Ann Arbor to listen to the voice of those who live with the physical scars of warfare.

I'm not familiar with the PA wackjobs and thought at first Jzk was sensible as he was fighting with Random. I've now realised that he and Random share the same level of intelligence.

Well there you go.  Combine that with the Empire State building, and the people of Ukraine have nothing to worry about.  Maybe you could even add a Ukrainian flag to your facebook profile picture?

He is saying that Putin made a mockery of Biden.  And he did.  Nothing wrong with not underestimating your enemy.  I think many of you did that in 2016.
Biden seems to know what to do in this case. He was very clear, we will not get into a shooting war with Russia because it's global suicide to play Russian Roulette with five shots in the six shooter.

Of course, a handful of the armchair generals in this thread seem to know better. They want to purge Russia from the Security Council and pretend that Russia isn't in fact a global superpower.

If you're describing a well regulated militia, find someone who disagrees.

I grew up with a bunch of them. I'm taking this personally.
I think there are enough of them in Western Canada and Ontario that everyone has connections. I taught with a couple of them. One guy taught kids, none of whom were Urainian, to make Ukrainian Easter eggs. Our school was so multi-cultural it might be Chinese, Indian, Italian, South African sitting around doing it.

Hockey had its 'Uke Line' in Boston, Horvath, Bucyk, Stasiuk, all from the Prairies.

Wrong.

If people are already shooting at each other and dying because of a head of state decisions then why the fuck not? 

You're happy to keep shooting the messengers, but not the cause.
Assassination is a violation of both U.S. Law and the rules of war. That is sufficient reason for me.

If you Aussies want to run around the planet assassinating people, I guess that's your business, but it is not a good idea. Leaders tend to be killed when the armies fail and can no longer protect them.

You truly have shit for brains. And low-grade shit, too.

Name 1 Russian leader in all history who retired peacefully.

That's not how Russia works.

- DSK
So ... you would rather have Putin suffer in agony than retire and help transition to a calmer, more rational Russia. And you claim that I have "shit for brains"?

By your weird definitions, it seems nobody can actually retire peacefully if anyone on the planet disagrees with them. So I guess you can claim that Gorbachev didn't retire peacefully ...
