Flood the Economies with money during COVID. Look now, at where so much Wealth is concentrating currently. It certainly isn't with the People...or Small Businesses.

Just saying.
I agree with you.

I can't even say what I think anymore because I'll wind up on some kind of "hot list" or "potential terrorist" list. IMO things are so beyond incompetent, corrupt, and immoral there are no good words.

Did everyone forget about THE WAR?

How's it going? How's our $54B investment performing?

Asking for a friend.

I think as soon as the word UKraine is heard on the television people reach for the remote to turn it off. Show anything Biden manages right and peoples clickers will find him.

They could only lie for so long. Europe is already backing off sanctions. The US will be next.

Russia will probably suffer significant losses, but from what I hear they are recruiting soldiers from other countries to help. They are probably going to wind up with the parts of Ukraine they wanted most where the local population is Russian speaking, wanted independence, and was being badly mistreated by the Ukrainian government.

Zelenskyy and his aides have appealed to the West to supply more of the sophisticated armaments it has already sent. They have questioned their allies’ commitment to the Ukrainian cause and insisted that nothing else can stop Russia’s advance, which even by conservative estimates has claimed the lives of tens of thousands of civilians and soldiers.

Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin urged Western allies last week to redouble their military aid to Ukraine, warning that the country “is facing a pivotal moment on the battlefield” in its nearly four-month fight with Russia.
They don't sound very grateful for the billions so let's double it, then maybe it will be appreciated.

More like another $55B to Raytheon, Boeing, and Lockheed Martin.

And we are getting technology 20 years greater than the public knows about or understands.

This is the "democracy" we are spending tens of billions to defend and dealing with all sorts of shortages for so we can sanction Russia.

https://www.rferl.org/a/ukraine-bans.../31906479.html

"KYIV -- A court in Kyiv has banned the pro-Russian Opposition Platform -- For Life (OPZZh) political party led by jailed Kremlin-friendly politician Viktor Medvedchuk.

The Justice Ministry issued a statement after the Administrative Court of Appeals No. 8 handed down the decision on June 20, saying that the party's property and assets will be confiscated by the State Treasury."


So basically, if you disagree with the obviously corrupt Ukraine government in charge (that was helped into power by US and western globalist allies) and are instead in favor of closer ties to Russia instead, you aren't allow to make the case to the people, especially the Russian speaking people in the east that are being badly mistreated. You are jailed, your political party is banned, your TV stations are eliminated, and your assets are confiscated.

Actually it all makes sense. This is the path the democrats are on in the US with a dominant position in media and social media tech companies. It's our way or you are barred and your career destroyed.

Max Boot is sad that we're not really treating this as OUR WAR:

Allies? We're Ukraine's allies? I know we're allies of NATO. If a NATO country was under attack, Ukraine wouldn't be sending troops. We are concerned with Russia expanding their area and resources. 26 countries on continental Europe signed on with NATO, but not you.

It's like a fucking ghost town in this thread...what happened? Where did Ely go with his almost daily glowing reports of Ukrainian military mastery?

Have things turned that ugly for Ukraine in their attempt to turn back Russian aggression?

What happened to the demise of the Russian Army via all the personnel they were losing on the battlefield? Was that a myth?

ForeignAffairs.com states the obivous:

The Fantasy of Russian Defeat and the Case for Diplomacy
