    Anybody paying attention to the tensions with Russia?

    I get the feeling we are not the good guys in this passing match. I no longer see NATO as being the overall good guy.

    Trying to figure out what Putin's motives are. Does he really want to start WWIII, the true war to end all wars, as in total global annihilation?

    Man, it seems like he is a bit cornered. Ukraine frequently screws with the pipeline that goes through their country, and NATO seems bent on making him say uncle. I just worry that they think Russia will be as easy to pacify as Iraq.

    Well, no matter what happens, with PINO Biden in charge, we are totally screwed....and Putin knows it, too.

    Worst he will do is cower in the corner and issue some real threats, like more sanctions. Maybe send some more blankets to the Ukraine too...... Putin knows he's a defacto president and the liberals running the whitehouse will do nothing when he invades.

    Brandon is nothing but a figurehead...it won't be him that orders the button pushing. Those calling the shots are imbeciles, who when push comes to shove will make water in their pants and demand Russia "Stop!!! Or we will demand you 'STOP' again!".

    Don't know if you are a Martin Armstrong fan 1Pat, but he tells some interesting stories about his interactions with the gov't. They used to fly him in to evaluate rethuglican presidential candidates prior to elections. When they flew him in to evaluate GW they told him that this time it was different...the guy was stupid. When he asked them why they were running someone "stupid", the reply was that he had the name appeal to potentially win.

    It was at that point, that the candidate for president became a figurehead. That frames the 0bama presidency perfectly...idiot pretender, not calling the shots, propped up by the deep state.

    Trump tried to piss in their wheaties...did his best in that regard, and his four years in office are testament to what the deep state did to undermine him.

    Trump came into office believing the POTUS was supposed to manage the country just as a CEO would...the state had other ideas.

    They seem to think that fighting Russia will be like fighting Iraq. The Russians are so intense these days. They have not been any threat to us.
    And yet they give China a pass.

    They give China a pass because of all our businesses that are over there, and how much of the USA is owned by China.

    My fear with Russia and Putin is they are trying to goad us into something so that the can try their latest and greatest equipment against our so-called super-sophisticated aircraft. Bring one down, take it's hulk back to the lab and reverse engineer it. Not to mention losing lives that would be better of saving our homeland.

    I am going to predict, that if Putin gets really stupid and enters Ukraine with full troop involvement, it will be preceded by a huge global cyber attack.

    Wait for it...

    I pray neither happens.

    I'm going to predict once Putin moves into Ukraine and we're committed in what ever little way, like sending blankets and warnings, China will initiate the take over of Taiwan.

    He predicted quite a few things that came true. I need to pay attention to his stock market predictions. I heard someone on coast to coast predicting an 80% drop in the stock market. Since he was on, the dow has gone down 2000 pts.

    Everything his AI computer 'Socrates' has predicted has come true. It's programmed with thousands of years of economic, political, and social data...as far back as Babylon. Read up on the PI cycle(s)...the ECM on his blog...it's fascinating!

    Sending a few thousand US troops might be a good idea.....Not.
