Putin's war

Becoming increasingly obvious that this action by this tyrant is self serving. He cares nothing about the innocents being slaughtered or his own people. Protests are growing in Russia as the world shuts them off. Saw video today of an elderly woman, who could barely walk on her own, being arrested for holding up protest signs in St Petersburg. Kudos to the brave Russian people risking personal injury or punishment in attempts to send a message to this monster.

It's a (very) long read, but this article from 2015 is the best one that I've seen for explaining why Russia (and Putin specifically) are doing what they're doing.  Experts 7 years ago were predicting exactly what is currently happening, almost to the detail.  I mean obviously there are no valid excuses for doing something like this, but I still think it's worth trying to understand what's going on and why.

Ideally it would be from within if that were to happen. The problem is that Putin pretty much controls what news he wants to put out there. You would think that's a tough thing to do in this day and age but stories are that is indeed what's happening and the older Russian population is taking the bait.

CTV news: russia has shelled a nuclear power staion in the Ukraine. If the shelling begins a meltdown, it would be 10 times worse that Chernoble (SP?).  :wut2:

Leif Ericson finds North America about 1000- Mocow founded 1147. It's insane to think Moscow didn't have a feeling about the former. Why can't they say something nice- good even??????
