The real question now is, how far will Putin be able to go in reestablishing the USSR?
Is he just that stupid or is he delusional to believe the the USA just invaded by sea, the Ukraine? This is not the first time, he's done this in public, (showed his absolute lack of knowledge of American History) an insult to the office he once held.
So, MSM actually predicted that Russia was going to invade the Ukraine weeks ago? All I was seeing were exhortations to "Get vaccinated!!!" And, negative reports about the Canadian truckers protest.
There were dire warnings about China invading Taiwan last year. But nothing about Russia invading the Ukraine. And nothing about Putin planning to reform the Soviet Union by force.
Are there any articles you could link predicting this "weeks" ago?
Americans didn't know that Putin invaded Georgia when Bush was president, or that he took Crimea when Obama was president?
That seems strange....
Trump sanctioned Russia, and things were (relatively) okay. Then Biden got into office, lifted the sanctions, and gave him Nordstream.
I'm very confused about how this is all Trump's fault. I think it's more likely Putin's fault.
I'm really not understanding the liberal logic going on here. Putin invaded Ukraine while Biden is president, but this in your view is somehow Trump's fault? Come on, this has nothing to do with Trump. If he had somehow been Putin's puppet, then Putin would have invaded Ukraine during Trump's presidency.
David, this was on the major US evening network TV news broadcasts, the BBC, CNN, and my Washington Post and NYT news apps. Even the CBC was reporting it, although generally after the situation in Ottawa.
I don't know how many news reports you can access without a subscription.
The one MSM that downplayed it was Fox. Surprise, surprise.
Where are you getting your news?
Most of the older reports on MSM have been bumped out by breaking news from the past day or two, but try these:
Why would he have to wait? if Trump had been his puppet, he could have done anything he wanted.
During Trump's presidency the U.S. became energy independant, and the amount of oil purchased from Russia went down significantly, hurting Russia. Trump sold weapons to Ukraine. Trump applied harsher sanctions to Russia than Biden has. The facts show a much diferent scenario: Trump's presidency was very hurtful to russian hegemony.
The claim doesn't stand to fact.
Try to be factual Dirius. It is disgusting to politicize an unprovoked war that is killing people and toppling a democracy when you belong to none of the involved countries.
Exactly. The Russia-Ukraine conflict has been going on since 2012-13 or whenever. They could have easily started a war by now, especially under Trump's watch if Trump were the war monger that people claim he is. However, that hadn't happened. My bigger question is why are they choosing 2022 to renew the conflict? Is it because maybe they want to distract us all from other things that actually affect the whole world? Things such as the cabal's plan to usher us into a technocratic dystopian social credit rating slavery system, and so they want all eyes directed away? Especially since the trucker convoys are raising awareness and people are also slowly waking up to how dangerous these vaccines are?
All right. So, by watching the news three weeks ago, you KNEW Putin was going to invade? Or, was just threatening to invade? I thought he would back off and negotiate. I overestimated his character-level.
David, leomoon and you made like 8 posts talking about Trump. I merely responded to david's post on Trump.
But somehow you try to chastize me for "politicizing" this thread? WTAF?
I think he believes that he can manufacture "truth" just by saying so. He had a consistent pattern of blatant lying during his presidency, of which the "stolen election" was simply the capstone.
He's obviously trying to weaken America's hand.
Trump is licking Putin's boots, as per my post on Trump's debt profile. If I wanted to be a conspiracy theorist, I would go beyond what I wrote.
