If it wasn't so serious, I would've lmao that.
Unfortunately, I think the situation parallels the start of WWII.
Austria (Crimea), Czechoslovakia (Ukraine), Poland (???)
Boris Johnson is the 1st politician I've heard say that the mistakes of the West in 2014 will not be repeated.
The Donald has been likened to Adolf V 2.0.
Wrong that belongs to Pootin.
The Donald IMHO should be liked to Buster Keaton V 2.0.

Over the years, faulty intelligence has led to a few calamities.
Risking a nuclear winter is one hell of a risk, for either side.

Unfortunately, we still need to seriously consider Pootin, if only to humour him along in the hope of lessening his vandalism and killings.

Hopefully, better and more mindful people will soon push Pootin aside before Russia is completely ruined...


Stay safe folks!

Now what's that moronic war criminal and nob of war criminals been up to? Oh, his ex-retired war criminal is back on this job doing his old war criminal tricks, but not all is good news for PooTin.

Russian general who oversaw atrocities in Syria led cluster bomb attacks on civilians in Ukraine.

Russia Fails to Capture Territory in Ukraine Region Held by Rebels.

Putin’s Desperate Troops Beg for Parents’ Money to Buy War Gear.

Russians using chips from kitchen appliances in military equipment. (now there are also reports of large scale standoffs happening at some munition factories due to supply issues with workers being told that if they want to get paid then join the army)

Putin's Superior Air Force Is Failing Him in Ukraine.

Finland to apply to NATO 'without delay,' as Sweden mulls stance.

Meanwhile another PooTin loving RINO gets added to the list of 57 others.

Defiant U.S. Senator Rand Paul stymies effort to pass $40 billion Ukraine aid bill.

I actually had a bit of an entertaining time yesterday watching a lot of Russian equipment, soldiers and supplies being blown to smithereens and boy don't those Russians tank turrets fly while those war criminals on foot do know how to run for their lives. And all the time I was wondering what PooTin was feeling about it all.

PooTin retaliates by cutting off the gas (that the real stuff that is in fact gaseous).

Russia lashes out at Finland's race to join NATO.

You can see how good those Russian tank turrets fly here.

Video of Russian Tank Blowing Up in Ukraine Captured by China State Media.

Yep, they sure fly good and I wonder if there's video about yet for this lot of decapitated 1's.

Photos show dozens of wrecked Russian tanks and armored vehicles destroyed in failed river crossing, Ukraine's military says.

And at the rate that those Russians are going through stuff,

Ukraine war: 'Credible evidence' of sexual violence against children - while attacks on schools also mounting

For far too many years USSR and its successor Russia have hidden behind the protection afforded by them being members of key UN groups such as being a permanent member of the UN Security Council where they could block any move to criticise their actions by using their veto. It's high time this much abused privilege was revoked.

In recent photos Putin has looked a very sick shadow of his former fit self. To my, non-medical eyes it looks as if he's been pumped full of steroids so he can stand up and walk, this is not uncommon with cancer patients, but can have some pretty significant neurological and physiological side effects. Among the most obvious side effects are bloating & hand tremors, plus irrational thought patterns and processes.

I for one will gladly pay more for what I buy, in order to stop feeding undemocratic, dictatorial, and fascist countries like Russia and China.
That may mean that I must lower my living standards, and I'm more than willing to do that. I've had enough of Russia and China.

Sten that is happening right now.

This was another instance of easily bought politicians... there used to be plenty of tariff and other protections in place, and laws to make it financially a no-win to ship jobs to other countries, but they were scrapped after enough "influence."

We've had plenty of evidence that China criminalizes just about everything, then uses prison labour in manufacturing (which is then no better than slave labour) and even "free" workers are treated like slaves, ie forced to live in company quarters for a fee, worked double-digit hours and then lose their pay for taking an extra minute on break or nodding off for a few seconds. I'm not a fan of excessive regulation, but it's impossible for a free society to compete fairly with this thus the tariffs etc.. We need to vote this issue (and Ukraine too, of course.)

I wonder how many portable generators we would have to send to Finland to replace the lost power?

From reports that I've seen Russian electricity only accounts for around 10% of what Finland uses.

Maybe only a couple of "Whiskey on the rocks" and that would be enough power. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Soviet_submarine_S-363

Yeah PooTin should've seen that coming Sten, but he didn't, and then the Ukraine winning Eurovision has some Russians chucking a colossal tantrum.

While back at home some of PooTin's supporting bloggers are now not happy. Will more follow?
