#1 Go all out on nukes or shut the fuck up and get rid of your "leaders" Russia. Those are your only choices.

Putin is being treated for Cancer.

Being a Communist, he has zero religious taught morals. Just a strong belief in the Communist Manifesto.

So starting WW-III is something he could do w/o personnel Religious or Moral conflicts.

#5 The current conflict in Ukraine could have been on the docket for quite some time. Vlad's medical condition may have simply prompted him to hit 'fast forward.'

#6 The cold war has returned. The red line Putin has drawn is no liberal minded woke response. He will follow thru on his concerns. China and many other countries are right there with him. I see no extensive support or coordination offered to return balance. It appears to me to be very unbalanced at this time. Money and the tools of war will not win against true power developing on the side of nationalism. Think about it. Western countries divided internally. Nationalism is fading fast. The glue that holds a country together.

#7 Yes, Dale, it's all over. We may as well follow you in bowing down to Putin.

*yawn*

#8 The left is infatuated with tribalism. They may not dig which tribe comes out on top.

#9 How is that bowing down to Putin. Sounds like Dale hit the nail on the head.

#10 #6: "Nationalism is fading fast." ... It is in the U.S., not so much in Ukraine.

#11 Not in the US, either.

Stop mistaking the clowns on TV for the entire nation.

#13 Is Putey Poot going to throw poo?

Russia needs to flush this turd. On their own. It's NOT OUR JOB. If he attacks us, we can remove them from existence, but til then, the Russian people are the ones in the hot seat.

#14 Afghanistan should have gotten rid of the Taliban before they staged 9/11.

KSA should have gotten rid of bin Laden before he masterminded 9/11.

Germans should not have let Hitler come to power.

And so on...

#16 "you on your period today Rob?"

Rob's on her period every day. A nasty obsessive-compulsive.

#17 A girl! What an unkindest cut!
"Dude, naught dangles under your butt!"
No mercy was offered.

#18 ^ ... 'cause you're an old Cold Warrior fossil whose time passed 30 years ago, Fred.

Go gentle into that good night.

Please stop fucking up our generation's world by re-fighting your wars of the last century.

Russia is not our enemy. The enemy that truly threatens American freedom and prosperity in this, OUR century, is mot Russia but CHINA.

CHINA.

Step aside, old cold warriors. Wrong century.

#19 You see, the people in charge now don't see war as a means to an end. War is the end in itself.

Stomping that thinking out will be a chore.

#20 $60 billion: "baaa-baaa Black Sheep, have you any wool?

"$20B for the [Lockheed-Raytheon-Boeing] 'master'...

"$20B for the [Kolomoisky-Zelensky-other bandits] 'dame'...

"And $20B for the little Biden-spawn crackhead who lives down the Hollywood Boulevard..."
