Russia Having Its Way with Ukraine, Desperate West Calls Putin Insane
As I mentioned in a previous article, it is my opinion that Putin has already won. Ukraine has already beckoned Putin to the bargaining table, but when it became apparent that Ukraine was not going to allow Putin to dictate terms, Putin shut it down and continued his attack. He knows Ukraine will try again.
Suffice it to say that Russia is having very few problems in Ukraine.
Karkhiv is essentially done. There was a battle yesterday, but that has largely subsided. Artillery and missile attacks are still ongoing on military and governmental targets, but not on civilians.
Unfortunately, there have been reports of rocket engines detaching and falling into civilian areas. But the fact that the civilians are being largely ignored, tells you the Russians are not having a hard time of it.
In the Donbas region, where areas are considered “newly independent” by the Russians, the Ukrainian military is in retreat. The city of Mariupol (about 450,000, or slightly smaller than Louisville, KY) is completely encircled. City will likely fall today. Ukrainian forces are retreating or dead.
Russian forces are outside of Kyiv, with more moving up the Dnieper River. They will have Kyiv boxed in very shortly.
Russia has encountered little unexpected resistance, they have yet to commit their reserve forces.
Reporting has surfaced and has been picked up by mainstream media that Putin has is mentally unbalanced and that he may even be willing to use nuclear weapons.
I see this as a sign of desperation from NATO and the Biden Administration, that they are ready to concede to Putin’s demands. After all, who in their right mind would try to argue with someone who is insane right? As I have predicted previously, the Biden Administration will make massive concessions to stop the war, because they are afraid of strength (Putin’s strength and the possibility of showing America’s strength) and have no idea what else to do.
The “virtue signaling” environment has run rampant. From Joe Namath canceling vodka in his restaurants, to FansOnly kicking Russian girls out (and then letting them back in…), to the rich and famous and their tearful support of Ukraine, it is amazing the lemming mentality from people whose minds rarely delve deeper than Saturday morning cartoons…
