Yes, Ukraine will be another Afghanistan for Russia! Go ahead and Invade! Putin, You Dumbass! Long and drawn out and very COSTLY! Such stupid bullshit! I think Putin has gone Berserk!
Perfect timing for Vlad. From Helsinki Don to whining about NATO defense spending to “the perfect phone call,” to the 2nd impeachment, to all living former secretaries of defense issuing a joint statement warning senior officers to obey their constitutional oaths, to the coup attempt on January 6th, to the debacle leaving Afghanistan, to vaccine resistors in the ranks to red state governors trying to radicalize their state guards, all Vlad has to do is walk in and watch the GOP exploit the situation they created by pinning the tail on Biden.
Germany did the same thing!
If peace talks fail, the Russian military has several options to advance into Ukraine through northern, central, and southern invasion routes. But a Russian attempt to seize and hold territory will not necessarily be easy and will likely be impacted by challenges from weather, urban combat, command and control, logistics, and the morale of Russian troops and the Ukrainian population. The United States and its European allies and partners should be prepared for an invasion by taking immediate economic, diplomatic, military, intelligence, and humanitarian steps to aid Ukraine and its population and shore up defenses along the North Atlantic Treaty Organization’s (NATO) eastern flank.
