Strikes on Kyiv. He’s moving right to the main course. A turn of events I’d hoped never to see in my own lifetime, perpetrated by a right-wing sado-populist regime led by a kleptocratic wannabe Tsar against a sovereign neighbour on false pretexts.
Not much more from me for now, but BBS community members and especially Leaders should note that I’ve set up two clearinghouse topics in order to keep main site boing discussions on the invasion and war from being de-railed by Useful Idiots, tankies, and Putin’s tr01ls-for-hire.

The Shirtless Wonder’s Alternate History – a topic for discussion and de-bunking of the Putin regime’s reality-challenged historical justifications for the invasion.

just imagine if in addition to voting against the authorization of force in iraq senators like barbara boxer and ted kennedy had used their time to speak out about what a great man or what genius saddam hussein was.
Fixed. The Russian people are not driving this invasion and many are protesting it despite the severe consequences.
I remember back then Fox News anchors all talked about how terrible and un-American it was to criticize a sitting President. Things have certainly changed on the right.
For those who don’t know, there is a specific thread:
Politics no longer end at the waters edge.
Vandenberg rolls I’m his grave.
