I think most agree that we need to stay the course. Both Dems and Repubs voted to support Ukraine so this shouldn't get too political.The Finland (and Sweden) move towards NATO are the mind-blowing mistakes of Putin here.
He has REALLY screwed up on that. The Finnish leader said strongly on video, directly to Putin,
if you want to know what caused this: YOU did this. Look in the Mirror.
On the war itself, an ex-US general just said that this looks to be heading to a stalled long-term
grinding type war that we've seen so often lately. He did point out that if Ukrainian soldiers could
push forward to a not-distant transportation corridor, that would make Russia's supply support
very much harder.
We need to stay the course here. That means economic pain for Europe, and some economic
pain for us. We could also use less griping about that pain due to the importance of what the
world is trying to accomplish here. Politics will nastily try to use this needed pain to whip up
voting support in disgustingly hypocritical ways.
There are other things to get political about --- most of them sh!tty too in my opinion, but two
things should not be: Crushing Putin, and Crushing COVID. For GOD's sake, and for the world's,
we need to quit labeling anything to do with these two colossal world needs with anything political.
I read that article. Seems it will be more drawn out because Ukraine doesn't have the means to counter with any large assault. They've been very effective with a more defensive strategy and taking areas back a little at a time. I'm still curious how the areas like Odessa and Mariupol are going to turn out? Russia has committed more energy there.
