They are motivated by a fear and a hope. The fear is that we'll accelerate the timetable of expansion; the hope is that Moscow can drive a wedge between us and our West European Allies, who are grousing a bit about "pressure" from Washington to expand the Alliance.

In the West, food and rent prices are up, but some how they come up with money to fund war.

Why would that be a proper goal when the world is relatively stable?

I don't know what (if any) impact this will have on Putin and I have a feeling this is going to end badly for this retired Colonel, but it was a pretty remarkable tirade.

I’ve seen this story going around but I’m not sure how accurate it is given it’s western reporting on russian bloggers, but it suggests the loss of almost 500 troops and 80 vehicles in a failed river crossing has broken through Putin’s media control.

NYTimes “The last straw that overwhelmed my patience was the events around Bilohorivka, where due to stupidity — I emphasize, because of the stupidity of the Russian command — at least one battalion tactical group was burned, possibly two.”
Growing evidence of a military disaster on the Donets pierces a pro-Russian bubble.- NYTimes
