Here we go again folks. Just like the “weapons of mass destruction” lies in Iraq, the elites in DC and the MSM are selling a war, and they hope you buy it.

Many here are already cheering on war. It's their favorite Olympic event. The US has already declared that the Russians will create a false flag inside Ukraine, and even claims to know when (by Tuesday or so). Either the CIA knows all of Russia's plans or they are setting it up themselves. Considering the CIA failed to know that Kabul would fall in a few days, or that the USSR was on the verge of collapse - things any taxi driver could have told them - I find it hard to believe they suddenly have a bug directly in Putin's ear.

Including some who want their cult leader to show not only does he control the fuel lines to Europe, but he has a military to enforce his gas stranglehold. Putin's cultists and others favoring authoritarianism and a continuation of the fossil economy also know more people get their news from social media these days so these extremists have broader platforms from which to spread their anti-democracy messages.

Biden has said the U.S. military will not enter a war in Ukraine...

Strange statement for a man that wants Ukraine in NATO. It does indeed look like the US is inciting Russia to invade, upping the tension and justifying more US troops in Europe.

“The hysteria of the White House is more indicative than ever,” said Maria Zakharova, a Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman. “The Anglo-Saxons need a war. At any cost."

Yup. Remember Iraq?

Talk about twisted logic....Putin sends 120K troops, short range ballistic missiles, and a fleet of amphibious landing craft to Ukraine's borders - everything needed for an invasion - then launches large scale exercises to prepare his troops....and Biden is the warmonger...

The far-right in the US has been co-opted by Putin, and serves as his cheerleaders and disinformation disseminators...

Just ask Fox's Comrade Carlson, Putin's new Poodle, replacing the previous now reading stolen Top Secret documents at Mar-A-Lago...

Putin's plan is likely to be a lightning attack thereafter slowly strangling and swallowing the Ukraine like a snake gulping down an oversize prey. Come spring we can expect to see that cat-who-swallowed-the-goldfish smirk on the face of the gremlin in the Kremlin while telling the world he only wanted (a) "Piece". Of course, there'll be a price to pay, perhaps a bigger one than Putin imagines when the chips fall and after the dust settles.

Putin may have bitten off more than he cares to chew. The only major player standing by his side is fellow dictator and war monger Xi of China.

It looks like Putin just wanted to strut around flashing his feathers like a peacock, and he didn't realize the backlash until now. He wanted to invade Ukraine, but now he's not so sure. It's good that everybody has taken a stand to protest this war mongering.

100 percent support for the Ukrainians against little man Putin and his menacing behaviour. He doesnt have the guts when it comes down to it anyway.

Ready for peace - Prepared for war.

beats you claim Biden's poll is in the low 30's.

But 57% disapproval is pretty much gutter. Let’s hope it doesn’t escalate for the nations and his sake as bad as they already are.

Even after the mid-term elections, Biden will still be the president.

Yes, but heavily neutered. Either he goes to the center or just becomes a rubber stamp lame duck President. He should learn from Bill Clinton.

God help us all!

Russia detected an American sub in their legitimate, not only "claimed" territorial waters,

near the Kuril Islands. Putin is furious.

And now we’re on the verge of war.

We are "on the verge of war" because Putin feels the U.S. and NATO are weak and he can get away with whatever he wants. Both were weakened by 4 years of Trump, who obviously worshipped Putin, by splitting the country on political lines and created discord among NATO members. A year has passed since Trump was POTUS and we are still arguing amongst ourselves. I don't blame Putin for thinking that he can get away with it right now.

3 ( +15 / -12 )

Russia no more wants Nato/US troops on its border with Ukraine than the US would want to see Russian troops on its border with Canada or Mexico.

The US says each country has the right to choose its own security arrangements. Utter and total BS.

£73million superyacht

Only 73 mil? You call that a super yacht? Not very impressive for a guy who supposedly is filthy rich.

6 ( +11 / -5 )

How does Putin own a luxury yacht?

Trump obsessed guy will be here in a minute to tell you how it’s linked to Trump, Tucker and Jan 6. Maybe the documents are in that box he keeps talking about.

Indeed. And it's illustrative to see the US far-right posters here clearly siding with Putin and Xi, rather than their own President...

It shows how much the far-right, and it's hive-mind media sphere, have been manipulated and co-opted by Russian disinformation...

2 ( +14 / -12 )

co-opted by Russian disinformation...

So by what date if Russia does not invade is this Biden White House disinformation? Or do you move to “nobody ever said that…” mode?

-4 ( +11 / -15 )

Putin owns three yachts

Make it eight, why not? Better yet, let's say he has a yacht in every major port in the world.

Only insanity calls or yearns for military/conflict, war.

The edge of war: what, exactly, does Putin want in Ukraine?

https://www.theguardian.com/world/2022/feb/12/russia-ukraine-what-does-putin-want

Putin long list of demands.

A return in many respects to the perceived “glory days” of the Soviet Union.

Problem here is that the old Soviet Union’s collapse was of its own choosing.   

Putin has brought us all here. The army, military firepower will be triggered if the west does not capitulate to Putin will. 

NATO is an irrelevance, a shadow of its former self.

Macron accused NATO of succumbing to form of brain death.

@Blacklabel

Bullseye!

Why is it that criticizing Biden gets us labelled as far right? I am a social democrat.

Plenty of Europeans of all stripes are against the US position.

-5 ( +11 / -16 )

Exactly., Biden shall not be criticized whatsoever. I don’t hear any other country screaming all this nonsense and beating this repetitive drum.

despite “western intelligence” being the supposed source of all this info no one else in panicking except Biden.

even Ukraine itself is telling him to chill out. But once he gets screaming he can’t stop, you see that when see he isn’t on teleprompter like a lifeless robot.

Russia can have as many troops on the border within its own territory as it likes. Doesn't mean they are going to invade. The West especially the US are the ones almost willing a war to take place. All Russia has wanted for hundreds of years is a secure eastern border, something the west seems reluctant to acknowledge...

The Ukraine wants the right to choose it's own security arrangement. Russia, and only Russia is objecting.

President Biden is walking a political diplomatic tightrope.

Europe cannot agree on punitive sanctions, held in Putin's clenched fist on energy policy.

President Biden and his advisors are hobbled,

Macron is on the verge of freelancing a deal, Marcon has no to authority to offer.

Whilst the German government is deaf and dumb when Nord Stream 2 comes into play.

The Minsk accord is propitiation, music to Putin ears. open to any form of interpretation.

These interpretations offer diametrically opposing solutions.  

President Biden must start knocking European heads together.

Or Putin could be open to the opportunity to take advantage and encroach on neighbouring states.

Putin has little or no time for the EU position at all, swatting aside any approach.

2 ( +10 / -8 )

Why does the US always get involved in other countries affairs? This is a problem between Russia and Ukraine, if Russia invades how does it affect the US and its people? Why risking American lives and stability for a piece of land that's far away, especially when the country lacks strong leadership to be in a war right now?

So many pro-Putin posts by our far-right friends....surprising they are embracing CRT....

Yes, CRT - Commending Russia Theory....it's now a core value of MAGA-world....

Besides the posts here, just tune in to Fox's Comrade Carlson tonight and get a full hour of CRT...

NATO gathered in their masses

just like bureaucrats at Davos

evil minds plotting destruction

Sorcerers through corporate MSM construction

mic drop

Hmm…so to liberals asking legitimate questions as to how going to war with Russia and what benefits are there for the US is signifying that you’re a Russian sympathizer is probably the absolute worst excuse every. It would be nice if this secretive administration would sometimes clarify things and inform the public. But nope, not allowed.

-5 ( +8 / -13 )

There won't be any invasion! Putin is a fox and is playing the west. But US wants war to take peoples attention away from problems back home. This is going to be so embarrassing for the US administration, but they will try to spin it so that they can say 'Russians didn't invading because they were so scared of us' just like what they said after the collapse of the Soviet Union, it had nothing to do with US, but they took credit for it...

For some reason, some Pro-Putin anti-NATO supporters want to ignore Putin and his Russian Federation’s connections with Iran, also forgetting the two regimes are fighting a war together in Syria. Both nations will use their militaries to protect their fuel reserves.

No, they didn’t actually.

Sink or swim, that’s it.
