#1 Earlier, Gaidai claimed that the Armed Forces of Ukraine could recapture Severodonetsk, although this city has no special strategic significance.

So typical of Zelensky and his handlers to waste their best troops in pointless last stands of no strategic value whatsoever. Their entire approach is focused on winning the propaganda war: every battle is to be portrayed as another Stalingrad; the struggle is between the forces of light & goodness and the forces of totalitarian darkness, the Shire vs the Orcs. All of it an absurd theater cal show staged by the little comedian playing a T-shirted De Gauls.

All throughout this farce the western peoples have been lied to repeatedly. Billions in aid have been squandered or stolen. Thousands have been killed.

This is the worst catastrophe since the Vietnam War. Even worse than Iraq. A total, crushing failure.

#6 We see the "Skidmark" back to his usual tricks of posting spin, lies and other garbage from the British tabloids.

The war has been a total shitshow for the Ukrainians. Everything we were told was a lie. Lies from by Biden and Johnson's spin doctors, the propagandists at "Institute for the Study of War," the neocon wackos, Vindman and the other foreign agents ... all of it ridiculous lies.

Biden and his incompetent foreign policy crew have fucked up literally everything they've touched. Afghanistan fiasco. Border collapse. Oil policy facepalm. Pushing China and India closer to Russia. Sucking up to Venezuela and literally begging Mohammed Bin Salman for favors.

In Ukraine they took a bad situation and poured gasoline on the fire. Now they're actually depleting our own missile stocks for this total waste. Impeach this asshole. Overthrow Zelensky and hustle his little ass out to Miami.

#8 *shrug* badanov has the spin, lies and other garbage from Russian and Ukrainian sources taken care of, so Skidmark and others are providing other sources to help us triangulate on what is actually happening.

As are our visitors, who really have no business being upset that we take everything they post under advisement as well.

#9 I think the 90% destroyed is actual fact based on satellite imagery.

Shouldn't be 'opinion'
