George W. Bush misrepresented our work at CIA to sell the Iraq invasion. Its time to call him what he is: A liar. (now try war criminal)
How many U.S. soldiers were wounded in Iraq? No one knows or seems to care - Press Watch ... But the wounded figure wildly understates the number of American servicemembers who suffered injuries, losses, and lifetime afflictions during the war that George W. Bush and Dick Cheney started based on lies.
The elite liberal(ish) case for invading Iraq ... an unpleasant trip down memory lane: worth noting that at this point by most of these dudes were not really even pretending that Iraq posed any material threat to the US. Instead, the arguments were mostly premised on dreams about how democracy could be created by force ex nihilo by, er, George W. Bush, Donald Rumsfeld, and some Heritage Foundation interns

Eschaton: They Killed An Immense Number Of People raq war mea culpas were a thing about 12 years ago or so, and most of them were along the lines of, "wow how could my immense brain have failed me, no worries, my immense brain will never do that again, because it is so immense." Almost no reckoning with what they caused ... I'd be more forgiving if it wasn't the case that 20 years later, "support for the Iraq war" wasn't still an almost (not quite!) perfect indicator of whether someone is a complete asshole today.
How Start? - by John Ganz - Unpopular Front Reflecting on the War in Iraq ... Many of the nations journalists and writers gladly volunteered for that work. They set out to make sure an insane thing became common sense among the elite ... We went to war and killed hundreds of thousands for something that was just not real. If the jingoism, militarism, and bureaucratic machinery of the Bush era somehow fuses with the rowdy, populist hate-mongering of Trumpism, then the question of fascism will be settled: we will unambiguously have it
The real weapons of mass destruction are the enemies we made among the way : It is, I suppose, not surprising to see Bret Usually Wrong And Never in Doubt Stephens proclaim that he was correct to have supported the invasion of Iraq. It is amazing to see him justify it in originalist terms that is, because of weapons of mass destruction that didnt exist:

Neoliberalismis now part of the lefts lexicon, but I looked in vain to find it in the plain print of federal budgets, at least as far as aid to the poor was concerned ...

The primary reason for our stalled progress on poverty reduction has to do with the fact that we have not confronted the unrelenting exploitation of the poor in the labor, housing and financial markets ... Unwinding ourselves from our neighbors deprivation and refusing to live as enemies of the poor will require us to pay a price. Its the price of our restored humanity and renewed country.

"Kill all Ukrainians including their babies" - Open Video Polling in Russia : UkrainianConflict

Over 200,000 Russian soldiers and more than 1,800 officers have been either killed or wounded since Russia's full-scale invasion of #Ukraine, Der Spiegel reported, citing the Supreme Allied Commander Europe, Christopher Cavoli.

Russia's population nightmare is going to get even worse - War in Ukraine has aggravated a crisis that long predates the conflict ... Over the past three years the country has lost around 2m more people than it would ordinarily have done, as a result of war, disease and exodus. The life expectancy of Russian males aged 15 fell by almost five years, to the same level as in Haiti. The number of Russians born in April 2022 was no higher than it had been in the months of Hitlers occupation. And because so many men of fighting age are dead or in exile, women outnumber men by at least 10m ... Russia may have had the largest covid death toll in the world after India and the highest mortality rate of all, with 850-1,100 deaths per 100,000 people ... if you look just at peacetime years, the number of births registered in April 2022 was the lowest since the 18th century ... making Russia a smaller, worse-educated and poorer country, from which young people flee and where men die in their 60s. The invasion has been a human catastrophe and not only for Ukrainians

I think the tenacious defense of Bakhmut achieved a great deal, expending RU manpower and ammunition. But strategies can reach points of diminishing returns, and given UA is trying to husband resources for an offensive, it could impede the success of a more important operation.
6/ Ukrainian forces are unlikely to withdraw from #Bakhmut all at once and may pursue a gradual fighting withdrawal to exhaust #Russian forces through continued urban warfare.

Eschaton: Salute Thinking about the Iraq era, it's quite amazing the degree to which our glorious media outlets were aligned in catapulting the propaganda in various ways. I don't just mean the sales pitch on the Iraq war itself, I mean the whole post-9/11 rally-around-your-flag-and-president stuff. Hard to remember now, but pre-9/11 they were all settling on the narrative of, basically, George Bush is a big dunce and if anything bad happens we're pretty fucked, and then something really bad did happen and suddenly he was the glorious leader we all needed. Lots of ways "news" is corrupted by propaganda, constantly, but normally it isn't completely encompassing like it was then.

Parents push back on allegations against St. Louis transgender center. Im baffled ... Explosive allegations made public last month about a St. Louis clinic that treats transgender children have flung parents into a vortex of emotions: shock, confusion, anger, fear ...

Almost two dozen parents of children seen at the clinic, which opened in 2017, say their experiences sharply contradict the examples supplied by Jamie Reed, a case manager who left the WU center after being employed there for more than four years.

Russian forces are revamping their assault tactics after experiencing failures with their current structure. The Battalion Tactical Groups (BTGs) are getting replaced with a new unit called the Assault Unit or AssaultDetachmentwhich I will discuss in this thread.
(2/6) NI is seen as an elite infantry force within the Russian military.
(4/6) As such, NI has been tasked with some of the toughest tactical missions in the war and has suffered extremely high casualties.
6/6) This lack of experience is almost certainly exacerbating Russian officers tendency to micromanage, which in turn reduces operational agility. There is a realistic possibility that degraded NI units will again be committed to new assaults near Vuhledar.

Eschaton: Going Backwards The racist things that would've led to politicians being CANCELLED (general condemnation by elite media and similar, something they have the power to do when they choose, and distancing from their colleagues) 10 years ago - hardly a utopian time, either - mostly wouldn't today. Railing about "cancel culture" was always just wanting the return of permission slips to be racist and horrible in other ways without any consequences. Sure the Dilbert guy managed to cross the line, but shows just how far that line has moved.
Eschaton: Dangerous Truths - And despite this being the elite consensus view, they all think they are brave truthtelling contrarians (even though most are too cowardly to go the full Dilbert Guy).

Recent updates as of 24.02 ... +970 +13

(1/5) Since 2014 Russia's strategic goal in Ukraine has highly likely been consistent: to control its neighbour. Over 2014-2021, it pursued this objective through subversion, by fomenting an undeclared war in the Donbas, and by annexing Crimea.
(2/5) On 24 February 2022, Russia pivoted to a new approach and launched a full-scale invasion which attempted to seize the whole country and depose its government
(4/5) In recent weeks, Russia has likely changed its approach again. Its campaign now likely primarily seeks to degrade the Ukrainian military, rather than being focused on seizing substantial new territory.
