  1. I guess I should have said "stated" aims. His stated aims was "denazification" and "demilitarisation". These are what I meant by vague. It could range from bombing the sh** out of the entire country, right down to killing a few skinheads and taking their guns. Putin is free to declare a 'victory' at any time, and bugger off home.
  2. What does 'victory' or 'defeat' mean here anyway? Putin's aims were so vague that virtually anything could be sold as a victory.
  3. Thanks for posting the video. I was hesitating to watch it because it was over an hour long, but I'm glad I did. It was a really good summary of how Russian propaganda works, and the cultural background to it.
  4. Here's the paragraph of the article I'm talking about: Literally nothing about what UKRAINE wanted to do. Just about what the USA or Putin wanted for Ukraine.
  5. I notice from the above article that, prior to the 2014 period, the opinions of the US and Russia were noted, but not that of Ukraine. So both powers were treating Ukraine like a child who can't decide what they want to be when they grow up, so enroll him in a university course of the parent's choice. That's the impression I got from the article, at any rate.

  7. Well, there we are. We may not have the luxury of "weaning ourselves off" Russian gas over months or years. Personally, I think the Germans have the ingenuity to do it much faster, and Putin turning the taps off will give them an extra incentive.
  8. What I don't understand about Twitter is why so many use it like a blog, i.e. tweets 1/7, 2/7, 3/7 etc. Why don't they just... uhhh, blog? Then put link to said blog post in your tweet.
  9. This is why, I suspect, they're happy to let inflation rip for a few years. Makes the public debt look a little less bad in relation to GDP.
  10. Now compare it with the cost of taking a Megabus, for further shocks.
  11. Yes, that's right, because if I hadn't have voted to leave the European Union in 2016, Putin would be cowering in his boots right now 🤡 Your continual pUtiN pAtSy and bRexSh_t put-downs are pretty childish, really.
