#1  Looks like Badanov's god, Vladimir Putin, has seen the handwriting on the wall and is preparing his robotic citizens for the reality, Ukraine is whipping Russia's murderous ass.

#2 "Murderous ass"
🤡

While you were sleeping, the Azov Nazi Battalion surrendered, Mariupol fell, and Russia completed its domination of the entire southern coast all the way to Crimea. The land bridge is complete.

#4 Not mine. Although it's true that my little country's being crushed by America's stupid sanctions. Yours, too, I'd wager.

Stagflation, here we come!

#7 The only "pro-war" people are Putin and his fan-boys. He started the war; he can end it.

#8 ^ Well, he wiped out the Nazis in Mariupol, so now he can go home. Mission accomplished, washing machines stolen!

#9 Seems to me the entire MSM and political establishment here in the US is "pro war," on the taxpayers' backs.

I dunno. Was it Austin or Blinken (or both?) who said something about this being an opportunity to bleed the Russians. That suggests a certain enthusiasm.

#12 Have they noticed that be escalating this war, they're shedding more Ukrainian than Russian blood? If so, do they care?

Sick bastards. Let's see what their attitude toward "bleeding" is when it's their own children's or brothers' and sisters' blood that's being spilled.
