Russo-Ukrainian War: The World Blood Pump

Source: Big Serge Thought.

Most of the sources I consult for news about the war in Ukraine stopped publishing military situation reports (“sitreps”) months ago. I don’t know why. Perhaps it is because TV news shows stopped giving time to retired generals to bloviate over maps of Ukraine.

Here is a particularly good sitrep. I don’t know anything about the author, so I suppose he might work for the Kremlin. That, of course, wouldn’t mean that his analysis is flawed or that — if he is American — he lacks patriotism. Rather, his work is timely in light of current events and addresses a number of themes which are much discussed in other forums. In short, an informative summary.

  1. Laughable.

    I do not care what this fellow has to say. The first sentence totally discredits everything that follows. That sentence was . . .

    “Since Russia’s surprise decision to voluntarily withdraw from west bank Kherson . . .”

    Uh, no. They did not “voluntarily withdraw. ” They were pushed out by Ukraine. They had a choice. Leave or die. If you do not see the obvious spin in such phrasing and continue reading then you are eager to be mislead and lied to. IMHO.

      1. “Kookie.”

        Not really.

        The key word here is “voluntarily.” The point I made is not hard to understand. You do not do something “voluntarily” when you are forced to do it by an outside force. This “expert” spinning Russia’s retreat as something “voluntary” tells the reader with critical thinking skills that he is not to be trusted.

        A man with actual critical thinking skills wouldn’t stumble so badly as you over a single sentence.

        1. You do the same thing all of the time. TO accuse others of what you yourself do is quite Trumpian.

          People interpret things differently all of the time. The Bible comes to mind. THere is no perfect definition of anything, truly, but the definition of one person does not make someone else’s wrong.

          1. How about you? I offered an excellent analysis for discussion, but you want to make the discussion about me. Do you not comprehend the nature of your error?

          2. …”an excellent analysis for discussion,”

            I disagree. You offered usual pro-Putin drivel.

            I made no error. I made an observation concerning YOUR posts and comments. The error is yours in not seeing your own behavior being indicative of one who attempts to deflect from oneself.

            I also note that you ignored my interpretation of interpretation and how it is imperfect. You claim superiority over everyone else here. A LOT. You did it again here. I pointed it out, you got your feelings hurt and ignored the key point of my comment.
