Both sides worried that this proxy war could escalate into a direct conflict between nuclear powers. Yet it never did.

As of Jan. 10, 2022, only 48 percent of rural Americans were vaccinated, compared with 61 percent of their urban counterparts ... those who distrust scientists and other official sources of authority distinguish those who are book smart from those who have common sense, the latter of which they view as a superior means of ascertaining truth (they can't read, either, libtard demon-rats killing all the tree with their gay CRT)

Hes got a job to do. I know you guys too well. Youll fly him to Alaska if you have a chance. Dont do it. ... I know Im just a grumpy Old Media dude, but the prospect that the vice president and his staff suspected elements of the Secret Service were part of an effort to put the bag on him strikes me as what we used to be called a story, and one that has what we used to call legs.

That's how Special Operation turned into war" / Twitter

Kamil Galeev on Twitter: "Benedict Anderson gives a key to this question. According to Anderson, modern literary languages are artificial. They were created by the double effect of modern state with its homogenising policies and of the printing press. Whatever existed before functioned very differently" / Twitter
Cultural uniformity - that's the real goal of Z-war. It is all about directing vernacular bifurcation of the ancient sacred community towards everyone becoming Russian. The problem with Ukraine is that it exists. That's a view deeply embedded in the Russian culture

The Christian nationalism behind Putins war

The End of Russia's Empire -- Moscow has a stake in the Ukraine war that is greater than Putin's career ... The czars, commissars and Putinists all saw Russia as both unique and committed to a struggle against the West. For the czars, Moscow was the hird Rome that would carry the torch of Christianity and civilization after the first Rome fell to barbarian invaders and the second Rome (Constantinople) fell to the Turks. For the communists, Moscow was the citadel of the global proletarian revolution, fated to annihilate the decadent bourgeois culture of the West. Mr. Putin and his acolytes see the world in similar terms, with Russia committed to a war of survival against Western decadence, soullessness and unbridled greed. (said the mafia state) ... Ukraine is the heart of the matter. With Ukraine under its thumb, Moscow sees itself as the greatest power in Europe. Without Ukraine, the dream that Russia can recapture the Soviet Unions status as a superpower will die a bitter death ... Eurasianism ... It would challenge the idea of Russian exceptionalism and fatally undermine the view that despotism is the form of governance best suited to the Russian soul ... For Vladimir Putin and the people around him, the stakes in Ukraine are almost infinitely great. /a>

Ex-Kremlin official found dead alongside wife and daughter in 2m Moscow apartment ... Russian intelligence has started an investigation into the deaths with early reports suggesting it was a double murder and suicide.

Ukraine war: Russias sunken warship dents its pride and capabilities

Via DM, Moskva ammo detonation & related corruption:
Neptune's Wrath: The Flagship Moskvas Demise ... The catastrophic saga of Russias attempt at subduing its neighbour must have not only astonished those following the offensive, but also Russia itself. Once thought to be amongst the most powerful armies of the world, the biggest enemy of the Russian Armed Forces turned out not to be NATO, but the Russian government itself. The incompetence, corruption and complete denial of reality so deeply embedded in its way of governing not only contributed to dragging yet another country into a senseless war, but also appears to have eliminated the Russian Armed Forces as an effective fighting force ... Whether the Russian political and military leadership is capable of eventually tackling these problems to some degree is unknown, but their ability to do so will likely be the single largest determinant in the outcome of Russia's war of brutality.

What Putin has been doing for many, many years is building up to a big war ... The Russian Federation is a truncated empire, waging its last big imperial war, which it will eventually lose. I dont know what kind of devastation it will wreak on the world before it does, but it will lose. It may lose its last great imperial war the same way Germany lost theirs after devastating the whole world. When it does, the empire will break up. I think there will be a State of Moscow and a State of St. Petersburg. I think dozens of countries will end up existing on the largest landmass in the world.

The Grand Theory Driving Putin to War ... One of the most alluring concepts was Eurasianism. Emerging from the collapse of the Russian Empire in 1917, this idea posited Russia as a Eurasian polity formed by a deep history of cultural exchanges among people of Turkic, Slavic, Mongol and other Asian origins ...the long-term connection between Eastern Orthodoxy and Russian empire.

Chicano_Ducky comments on /r/WorldNews Live Thread: Russian Invasion of Ukraine Day 42, Part 1 (Thread #180) ...

Shoigu is so stupid he is a black hole where human intelligence goes to die.
It actually turns out that this claim was legitimate, with at least 35 vehicles totally destroyed or damaged; mostly supply or fuel trucks, but with BMP/T-72 variant also. This is a serious blow.
Its been interesting to watch the reported number of Russian losses. In war the warring parties exaggerate the losses of the enemy wildly,so I have looked at Ukrainian claims with a good dose of scepticism. But its becoming clear their #s are not off by as much as I assumed
