      Putin never was drafted and never served in the Soviet Red Army. He was a KGB boy all the way. I would assume that any KGB guys would've have gotten some basic military science stuff at the Center. But who knows? He's out of touch and was buoyed by his "Little Green Men" scare in the Crimea. I'm more mystified by the sheer incompetence of the Russian high command. They've lost four generals in ambushes, which is nearly unheard of and must have really been putting on the ChapStick to blow fearless leader into his delusions. Some say that it's just graft and the Russian military is just corrupt but I think it is something more than that...

          Russian MREs. Ate one once. The beef stew is good, the jam is good, the soft cheese is good, the chocolate is Hershey grade, the Pashtett tastes like cat food and the salo sucks.

              It’s better to be alive in Siberia than dead in Moscow.

                  Wham Bam Thank You, Mam



                  Ukrainian forces are picking them off one-by-one. You can almost hear the voice of Hans Gruber saying "hit it again."

                    FlightTracker24 shows RQ-4 Global Hawk(s) flying over the skies of Poland close to the Ukrainian border. So you know the US military/NATO are relying Russian troop positions to Ukrainian forces.

                      Also, what military leaves their hardware this vulnerable to enemy fire? Appears the Ukrainian forces are playing it smart by not hitting the refueling tankers.

                          Even the North Koreans are looking at the Russian military and scratching their heads. What a needless waste of human life all for the oil of a madman and oligarchs.

                          Meanwhile, I'm thinking of getting myself a Russian oligarch yacht for @6 Rubles. But I'd never sail it on Lake Erie.

                            Former ambassador says the ‘Putin era is over’ -- but warns America to brace itself for what is coming next

                            Former U.S. Ambassador to Russia Jon Huntsman is blunt when commenting on Russian President Vladimir Putin's future in the wake of his brutal invasion of Ukraine.

                            “He’s done. The Putin era is over,” Huntsman said. “The only thing we need to now understand is the level of damage he’s going to do as he goes. I think that could be substantial, and we have to be prepared for that.” The former ambassador's comments came during a speech to the Economic Club of Minnesota, the Salt Lake Tribune reports.

                            Huntsman was the chief U.S. diplomat in Moscow from 2017 to 2019 under the Trump administration. He's not at all surprised by Putin’s move on Ukraine.

                            “It’s very telling when you walk into Putin’s office, and you see a portrait on the wall of Peter the Great. That’s not there by accident,” Huntsman said. “There’s a sort of emotional connection Putin feels there. He’s a man of empire — not just the Soviet empire but the Russian empire.”

                            Huntsman believes the longer the conflict drags on, the greater the chances of escalation. “He’s [Putin] is a master of escalation. It keeps me up at night just thinking about it. Putin will continue with force, and it will get worse,” Huntsman said. “We have to be extremely careful, so this does not evolve into a confrontation where horrible weapons are introduced to the battlefield like tactical nuclear weapons.”

                            How the war ends is impossible to predict. Some are hopeful that the crippling effect of economic sanctions on Russia and Ukraine's much fiercer-than-expected resistance to the Russian onslaught might engender a quick end to the fighting. Huntsman isn't so sure. “Does this mean Putin begins to have second thoughts about what he’s done? No, that’s not Putin’s style. He’ll double down, and things will get rougher,” Huntsman warned. “I have feelings of tremendous unease about the days and weeks ahead hold.”

                            The former diplomat also has another important concern: what happens to Russia if Putin is removed from power. Huntsman says the damage already done to that country from the conflict is immense, leading to greater instability and he warns the U.S. needs to be prepared.

                                Nah... Huntsman isn't ghey... he's Mormon. Formerly known as "the last reasonable Republican" during his failed Presidential primary run. I do agree with him that who or whatever replaces Pooty in Russia might actually be worse. Just like Pooty himself was definitely a step backwards from Gorby (or even that poor old drunk Yeltsin)
