Still that leaves an open question, why he was allowed to do that - if we consider now that he was serious.
A strange question from someone I would normally think was smart enough to not ask such a stupid question.
Do you think this dick runs his posts and his videos for Putin and Shoigu before he posts them?
Do you think Putin and Shoigu get to veto any videos and posts on social media before they are allowed to be posted?
In a democracy, how would Putin stop this guy from posting his own thoughts and beliefs and in a real democracy why would they want to stop him?
The only thing you said there that I respect was lets wait and see, which is certainly more sensible than wild speculation.
Garry, why do YOU tolerate the trolls you mentioned ?
This is a forum... no member agreed to think what I think or agree with everything I believe to be true.
How do you censor people to make them right?
How do you censor people to make them smart or sensible?
If I banned every idiot claiming the sky is falling or repeating western propaganda verbatim it would only be a matter of time before someone else got pissed off and stepped up and took their place and forum clown.
No point chasing your tail.
No point ignoring the idiots because if you do they get together and fester and circlejerk themselves to the point where they do something stupid.
People can act like teenagers... banning them does not help... banning them sends them to their room where they only hear their own stupid voice and their own stupid opinions and it makes them even more certain they are right and Putin is wrong.
Occasionally telling them to be quite while the adults in the room discuss or just wait for real confirmation so you can separate the fast news from Kiev and Washington robots, from the truth... which gets out eventually.
They should have gone after and annihilated the Ukrainian leadership at the beginning.
Which would have created a lot of sympathy for those nazis in the hope that whoever replaced them was as incompetent as they were... that is a huge risk and it pretty much tells most Ukrainians that they are worthless in the eyes of Russia... much the way more and more are seeing the regime in Kiev and the west right now.
Instead they pussyfooted and let the West arm Ukraine.
Stop drinking the western kool aide... going in guns blazing didn't help the US anywhere, most of the world view them as colonial war criminals... no respect... just fear and loathing.
And here we are...
And here we are... western countries are bankrupting themselves trying to fund weapons for Kiev... and that is ignoring all the weapons and ammo stores of their own they will have to spend money on to replace, and of course western sanctions are cutting western oligarchs and western countries from income and property they owned in Russia and were making good money on, not to mention their cut of Russian trade with the rest of the world, or simply Russia using the Euro and US dollar for international trade like everyone else used to, but are now stepping away from that.
This conflict is the best thing that could happen for Russia because Russia needed to break away from the west and the west is doing that for them.
There will be minor problems, but also advantages and great opportunities.... Russia is now actively looking for trade ties with countries outside of the west, and their response is excellent from countries sick of the BS they get from the west.
You think Putin should have been going harder... but the reality is that when you play chicken with a fucking moron you don't start with playing games like Russian roulette .... especially what I would called western roulette which is played with an automatic pistol with one round in the magazine.
Perhaps the result of all this in a short time will be what the majority wishes, that is, the SMO will be replaced with a declaration of war.
Why do you think that would make things better?
It wont make things faster, it will just increase the number of Russians killed and reduce Russian industry and its economy their capacity to get things done.
Sending men to war wont build airliners and ships and subs for that matter, or all the other things they would be better doing.
That is what happens when you believe that the world revolves around you...
Reminds me of the jokes, how many men does it take to screw in a light bulb... none he would rather screw a milk bottle, but then that really didn't work here as most lightbulbs are of the bayonet type rather than threaded screw type... but then the other joke is how many misogynist men does it take to screw in a light bulb... one... he just holds it and the world revolves around him.
Of course the obvious next question is how many femenists does it take to screw in a light bulb... two... one to do it and another to tell her she did it so much better than any man could.
