Putin is threatening to stop financial and cyber support for US republicans if he is held accountable in any meaningful way. Is Sen. Ron Johnson the Russian information officer or is it a different republican?

Don't forget that he may have already taken offensive action against undersea communication cables.  That is offensive right there.

From the spin in TFA, Russia is already shifting to "Silly Westerners, we were not going to invade - in fact, you're willingness to prepare for invasion makes you the TRUE invaders!

/Checkmate!

Earlier this month, Lavrov's deputy pointedly refused to rule out the deployment of Russian military assets to Cuba and Venezuela if Moscow's security demands aren't met.

Do it.  I'm sure Russia can afford it, your economy is doing just great right?  Quite the cunning plan.

"We invaded and took half of Ukraine.  We want the other half, but if you're not going to let us take it, you'd better give us something of equal value".

No.  Just no.  FOAD.  How about you give back what you've already taken and we continue to not invade you?  That seems like the right thing to do.

When you burn everything around you, eventually you're ruling ashes.  Building things is more difficult, but much better in the long run.

As a species, we really need to start culling the non-cooperators from the gene pool.

Trump was such a Russian asset that Putin waited until he left to start marching towards Ukraine.
 
2022-01-26 4:40:40 PM  
If Russia executes an offensive against Ukraine, its possible they will also stage a cyber attack against US infrastructure like the electrical grid and/or HFT platforms to cause some sort of stonk market meltdown.  Afterall, if they get kicked off of SWIFT, why would they care if the dollar gets whacked with a stock market meltdown?  Added bonus of throwing the US into a period of chaos similar to how that pipeline hack sent the east coast into a panic with people filling up trash bags with gasoline.

Our infrastructure was built by the lowest bidder and we continuously refuse to update, well anything. Our congressional science committee is run by flat Earthers and Creationists. And Obviously our HealthCare system is woefully inadequate to handle any kind of biological attack. As a matter of fact it seems to promote disease and pestilence at every turn.

My point is, Putin is not much of a threat. But it wouldnt take much to jack us up pretty bad.
 
2022-01-26 4:44:51 PM  
Subby.  While their compromised puppet was in office would've been a GREAT time to actually invade Ukraine.

Waiting until after he's out of office doesn't make sense

I'm gonna post this a bunch.

Have NATO or Biden put a bounty on Putin. "citizenship in a NATO country and $5 million dollars to the person who kills Putin, and if the Russians harm the new citizen, NATO nukes the shiat out of Russia.  Then switch camera angles and say "watch out Xi".  And Biden then puts his aviator glasses on and peels out in his trans am while swinging a chain out the window.

You want to cripple Russia?  Offer plane tickets, living subsidies, and English lessons to any single Russian women in decent health, above legal age and younger than 35, and offer a streamlined path to citizenship.

Russia does have a significant population, so you might have to spread this policy around the West to avoid problems with sex imbalances, but you could significantly slash their birthrate that way.  And it'd definitely piss off their young men and hopefully turn them on their own government.

No shots fired, either.

This is where single-party rule is preferable to pretend-two-party rule.   Putin only has to appear strong to the people of Russia.   The US has to have half the people happy and the other half whining because their guys aren't in power to look good.   Honestly, the US would be better off not pretending that there were two-parties and just let everyone root for one guy in the military-industrial-security party.

I'm not sure here. Where the U.S. has "temporarily-embarrassed millionaires," Russia has "future wives of industrialists."

You'll have a tough time convincing them to uproot when they're just a few months away from snagging themself an oligarch and being set for life, baby!

I think Putin was always planning on doing this during Trumps second term, and just lost the bet that his collection of idiots could pull off a successful coup, when they've ultimately failed at everything else they've tried.

Biden complicated things for him, and now who knows what's happening. All the world players at the stage measuring dicks and bank accounts and deciding how much blood they wish to spill. Talk about retro.

There's a deal in the works to avoid all of this, just delivered to Russia if what I've been reading is right.

No concessions vis-a-vis Ukraine not joining NATO (which they won't be able to do for probably a decade) but there will be concessions to Russia GUARANTEED.

So you might end up being sad.

Washington has made clear that Russian demands for NATO to pull back troops and weapons from eastern Europe and bar Ukraine from ever joining are non-starters, but says it is ready to discuss other topics such as arms control and confidence-building measures.
 
2022-01-26 5:52:25 PM  
"Russia has warned it would quickly take "retaliatory measures" if the U.S. and its allies rejected its demands."

Well - they were rejected -- but they've agreed to another meeting in Berlin two weeks from now.

Un hunh..."quickly"
