I guess that's still taking a nap in Turkey, no?

Let's rewind.

A bit of reality? Depends upon your religious beliefs I suppose.

Putin had a great - much applauded by his countrymen - and almost bloodless victory - annexing Crimea (let's not split hairs but actually it was a part of Ukraine at the time).

The West's reaction was slow and muted. The subsequent sanctions minimal. Brilliant! There's a template - if ever.

Subsequently, Russia poured arms and, covertly, it's "green men" forces into eastern Ukraine in order to support a "liberation" of the Russian speaking population. Who were of course being slaughtered by Ukrainian Nazis.

In Feb 2022, despite public denials by both Putin and Lavarov, regarding any intention of invading the country (that's sometimes referred to as "lying") 190,000 Russian troops crossed the Russia/Ukraine border.

A 42 mile convoy of Russian armour and troops, famously and publicly, went headlong towards Kyiv.

The plan - although the usual military/political experts on here will probably contemptuously accuse me of having no actual idea, having repeatedly given us the benefit of their expert views - was to take Kyiv, eliminate the government, replace it with a "Lukashenko" regime and claim victory. That, before the sloth-like West had an opportunity to put on it's socks.

Must be one of the biggest cock ups in military history. No?

Russia lost the battle of Kyiv.

Russia lost the battle of Kharkiv.

Russia lost the battle of Kherson

Russia lost the battle of Snake Island - losing their flagship whilst doing so. Sorry - it was a "smoking accident".

Russia lost the European energy war.

Russia lost their aim (big time) of preventing NATO expanding.

Russia lost the infrastructure war to make the Ukrainians lose heart.

But, after a full 12 months of effort they managed, at enormous cost in blood and treasure, to capture the rubble that used to be Bakhmut - though they needed prison mercenaries to do it and the claim seems to be contentious.

Whatever.

All's going splendidly then, for Putin's two-week War.

The home team have never lost heart though. Apparently, after 400 or so days all is going in accordance with Vladimir Putin's cunning plan.

You just prove yourself to be the pompous, self opinionated, brainwashed, bore you are! Typical ......... just leave out all the facts and you can prove yourself right. I could waste my time replying but I believe with you it is referred to as 'pissing into the wind'.

Then, some of the few active members on here seem to strive to get rid of the couple who don’t comply with their agenda. Turning the forum into a pro-Russian blog.

Isn’t that similar to the reason you left a previous forum, to return here? :?

I’ve said, several times, “remember, you wanted this” and tried, earnestly, to calm it down. A waste of effort. So be it.

In all the years I’ve known you, you’ve never simply posted as such. Rather, you mount a virtual pulpit and preach sermons. Looking for quiet, admiring acquiescence. What you have never been able to cope with is somebody pointing out that the likes of the idea the US blew up the WTC on 9/11, or many other such laughable absurdities are bollocks. Pride………. downfall.

You’ve professed glowing admiration for countries with Gestapo-like police setups for as long as I can remember. Now, you bleet pathetically about some innocuous possibility that the law just might be changed here and impinge upon your personal liberty.

You’re a total hypocrite, and……………. If you want more of this ……….. bring it on. I did try, several times, to warn you.

Ultimately of course, you’ll throw your dummy in the dirt and lose sleep trying to work out how - from the safety of your keyboard - you can cause me trouble off forum. In that respect - although you’ve failed in all your attempts - you’ve accumulated a bill. :wink:

Clearly nobody knew what the Yanks would do and low and behold they drove all the western people to bankruptcy. So we are paying for this war while the corporations are making a killing on our backs.

But I seem to remember one idiot saying this. I can't quite put my finger on who said it but I remember it very well

Not looking good for the Russians. This is costing 20bn a day and they’re running out of critical ammo and supplies. If Kiev holds out 3-4 more days then Putin is in shit.


I wonder if toilet boy flushed Putin down the loo yet.
