War porn? No thanks, read this excellent analysis of the coming winter offensive

i wouldn't call it an " excellent analysis "
more a barely adequate one, D - at best

it may have had some value if
the russian army had plenty of spetsnaz and special paras
but what he had of those got a bit of a whomping in the first 10 days .. sadly just a few stragglers left since then
and
if he had plenty of modern tanks backed up by plenty more older types
sadly the modern ones would feel somewhat self conscious nowadays as the pool of plentiful backup partners has been drained down to a muddy puddle .. and dancing alone is no fun even if you are the prettiest tank left on the front

Educated people usually dont resort to calling people with different opinions trolls and comparing them with propaganda channels. Its called Ad Hominem, a distraction in other words. You assume I am on the side of Russia because I simply dont agree with the MSM propaganda. Asserting opinions is not the same as fighting in a trench, gainsaying the other is pointless- its like 2 year olds. I guess "anarchy" means quite conservative thought.
But you understand that if you are a russian shill that is relevant to the conversation because the views you are espousing are not your own?

So if you are truly just a disinterested observer, can you agree with these points
1) Irrespective of what Ukraine and the west may or may not have done, Putin and Russia initiated this war of aggression and was rightly condemned for it by the UN
2) Irrespective of what other armed forces may or may not have done, Russian forces have conducted many war-crimes - including the deliberate targeting of civilian areas
3) Based the withdrawals from North of Kyiv, the Kharkiv area and Kherson, Russian forces have over the last 5 months been slowly losing

The question becomes ever more incomprehensible: Why do so many Russians accept to be Putin's cannon fodder, sacrificing their lives for his authoritarianism & kleptocracy? This makes no sense.
And how come so many Russians are capable of murder, rape and other heinous crimes? What kind of society is Russia? What does it mean to be Russian?

Yes Russian trolls get paid, they have a handbook with guidelines. Post daily on social media and you get paid. Dutch secret service broke in the Russian troll factory and got all the details. Even on the weirdest forums Russian paid trolls active.

German defense minister and democracy

Listen to her words

Words mean something


Just to set some things straight:

She is the foreign minister, not the defense minister.
Her statement has been discussed at nauseam in the German society, in a very democratic, although sometimes ridiculous way.
According to the German constitution, a minister is only bound by their conscience, not necessarily by their electorate.

And that is largely true of all modern democracies. It is impracticable to consult the population for every issue so we elect representatives to govern on our behalf. They inevitably have to make difficult decisions that will upset much of the population at times. The democratic accountability is through the next ballot box.
Always assuming unlike Putin you haven't had every opposition leader arrested, poisoned or otherwise eliminated.

Putin Could Launch A Big Winter Offensive

With what?
I agree, Putin, -could- launch a big winter offensive, if he could give his troops winter coats and guns that actually work and transport them effectively.

But Putin cannot do those things or he wouldn't be losing in Kherson and Donetsk, having already lost in Kyiv and Sumy and Kharkiv.

It's pretty obvious that we either have a number of SA members whose sole source of info is Russian state media (fictional propaganda), -and- they wholeheartedly believe it all;
OR
we have some paid Russian trolls.

In the case of Comrade Sluggo who is clearly a sailor, I think his emotional screeds give away his beliefs but he might still be getting paid to post his bullshit.

The fact is that the minister disregarded the welfare of the citizens she represents, to peruse a policy that was dictated from the USA , puts democracy in question

this has consequences

No, she hasn't. You should get the facts before you post lies like these. Apparently you haven't followed the respective discussion in Germany, so I'd suggest you catch up on it.

Maybe in your echo chambers on Telegram, but not in the general public. No normal citizen cares about blown-up pilelines. Of course we do care about the cost of living crises, but at least it's not as severe here as in Russia, right?
By the way, Annalena Baerbock is the most popular politician in Germany. Looks like she has done something right.
