I disagree with them about Pelosi's visit to Armenia, I think it was a political masterstroke to pull a traditional ally away from Putin, showing all of the CSTO how russia's commitments are nothing but empty promises.

I just hope Putin releases the pee pee tape before his demise.

I'd win a bet if he did and the person I bet with didn't die from Covid-19 because they were also an antimasker idiot

An offer of negotiations would have wrongfooted Kyiv, stymying its advance, freezing the conflict and dividing Moscow's enemies. He could have won time to regroup. He could even have put his hand up, swallowed humble pie.

In what deluded universe would this be true? Ukraine wouldn't have frozen for a millisecond at an offer of negotiations. Russia has killed probably in excess of a hundred thousand of its citizens, wounded or kidnapped uncountable more, committed war crimes on its soil, and sought to obliterate its culture and identity. They're in no mood to talk, especially when they're starting to succeed in recovering lost territory.

Yeah.  The Kharkiv operation showed the Ukrainian people and the world that they were capable of large scale operations to retake their territory.  It could be argued that the Kyiv assault was an overreach by russia that was a strategic mistake by them rather than an offensive win for Ukraine.  The Kharkiv offensive was against a static line of defense that russia had held for half a year.  The fact that the russians got overrun and panicked so badly will fuel the Ukrainian army and people to keep this going until they have all their land back, because now they're convinced that they can do it and that the russian army is really in bad shape and is ready to break.

> The Russian people, not the western powers or regional neighbours, will ultimately decide. But Putin's reign of impunity is drawing to a close.

Russia doesn't work that way. It is ruled by elites who may decide that Putin needs to be replaced so that the Ukraine failures can be blamed on him  Maybe the new Tsar will exit Ukraine or maybe decide on a "better" approach to conquering it and the whole process will be repeated.

Of course he's taking everyone with him. He has never come up with any kind of succession plan.

His plan has always been to hold absolute power until the day he dies, and then he doesn't give two farks what happen to the people he claimed to rule.

My thoughts as well.

A historical precedent would be the death of Alexander and the subsequent Wars of the Diadochi

Chaos all the way

How do we know he didn't try and the missile didn't fissile?  Just a couple hundred pounds of radioactive THUNK into the rubble of a Kyiv office building.

From his point of view, Russia is the continuation of the Roman Empire. The world is nothing without the Roman Empire and therefore nothing without Russia and an expanding Russia at that. Russia is nothing without him or a continuation of his policies.

Therefore... Any collapse means it's all meaningless and it's time to burn it all down.
