Aug 27, 2023: Update 2 on the Robotyne AO, Tokmak Axis, Zaporizhia Oblast, UkraineRussian mil-bloggers are reporting that the AFU has broken through to Verbove. If true, this is the 46th Airmobile Brigade and it is huge in many ways especially combined with the AFU report that the 82nd Air Assault Brigade has also moved on Novoprokopivka. This means the main lines of the Russian defenses in the sector have been breached.

2) Wagner fought relatively well at Bakhmut, and with some real aggression. If the Ukrainians had abandoned Bakhmut, it would have preserved large number of Wagner forces, allowed them to recruit more, all of whom would be fighting Ukrainians now. Russia would have real reserves.
Should also add, that in crippling Wagner and helping precipitate the mutiny, fighting for Bakhmut also ended up with Putin strengthening the positions of Shoigu and Gerasimov (who have performed poorly) and getting rid of Surovikin, who seems considerably more competent
So, in fighting for Bakhmut, the Ukrainians broke Wagner, helped precipitate the violent breakdown between Prigozhin and Putin, has deprived Russia of a large reserve force now, and deprived Russia of more resources to have dug in. It was a hard choice, but worth it.

No, you dont have a reptilian brain inside your brainThe myth of the reptilian brain is tenacious but wrong.
Reptilian Brain Myth Is Still Alive and Kicking | Evolution News
Rethinking the reptilian brain.
No, You Do Not Have a Lizard Brain Inside Your Human Brain | Mind Matters ... If bad behavior stems from our inner beasts, then were less responsible for some of our actions ...

What Carl Sagan got very wrong about the human brain - Big Think in his Pulitzer Prize-winning book, The Dragons of Eden, Sagan endorsed a disputed theory of human brain evolution, suggesting that humans have a reptilian brain deep within our minds ... The idea has since been roundly disproved, but the myth that humans have a reptile brain persists almost certainly thanks to Sagans problematic popularizing ... In his triune brain theory, MacLean argued that the human brain evolved layer by layer. The deepest portion, responsible for functions like movement and breathing as well as instincts like hunger, survival, and mating, originated from our ancient reptilian ancestors. The second layer, the limbic system, controls emotional responses and arose in more recent mammalian ancestors. The third and final layer, the cerebral cortex, allows for language and reasoning and only arose in humans ... textbooks published between 2009 and 2017 and found that 86% contained at least one inaccuracy suggesting that our brains are layered as MacLean theorized.

Russian Central Bank Calls Emergency Rate Meeting Amid Tumbling Rouble : UkraineWarVideoReport
Russias Emergency Rate Hike Fails to Lift Ruble After Crash
In an act of pure desperation to bolster the crumbling Russian Ruble the Russian Central Bank dramatically raised the key interest rate to 12% (up from 8.5%). This extraordinary increase lays bare how dangerous the plunge of the Russian currency (and inflation) for Russia has become. Whether this will help to support the Ruble manipulation remains to be seen. I have my doubts. The value of Ruble is anyway far below what it pretends to be and everyone holding just a bill of that currency, knows that it is toilet paper. The Russian black markets will have another feast ... Treating its subjects as slaves, while handing everything over the super-upper class in charge. Like I said yesterday, the joke is on you, Russians. You are losing your future, this war and everything what you own to a few, who have their money and properties hidden in the evil West. But I also say: Every people has the government it deserves, you more than any other country.

X is a platform where journalists are banned and smeared while the most repellant and dishonest voices are elevated.
