Posted in: Japan to impose sanctions on Russia over Ukraine crisis See in context

The corruption is so politically poisonous and toxic, the retched stink has reached into every vein of Russian government.

Good thing there is no corruption in western governments and institutions, an example to live by!

Why couldn't that money have been spent on the Russian people; on crumbling infrastructure, on COVID, on increasing quality of life?

Same for the US, why wouldn't the government focus on rising problems at home? Average citizens are more concerned with galloping inflation, skyrocketing rent, poor COVID response and the immigration problems.

Problems are piling up, not a good sign. What is this administration planning to do to curb the inflation?

Norway, a country whose total population of 5 million is less than one half of one percent of the host country's, led the medal count, as it often does.

Norway is a winter sports powerhouse, great job!

So I declare a reason for why I believe something, and you offer no evidence for believing Putin.

"Believe something" means you don't clearly understand what the issue is.

Nope. But Ukraine aren't threatening Russia. Russia is threatening Ukraine. So it's pretty easy to see the aggressor here.

It's your right to blindly believe whatever you choose to.

Are you just blindly defending Putin?

Are you just blindly defending the Ukrainian government? Or believing anything they say, for that matter?

Biden has been laying Putin like a fiddle... saying what he anticipates Putin's actions to be...

What an optimistic view on the situation. I'm not sure he actually remembers what he said a day before, let alone predicting anything.

If they do nothing you criticise them for inaction

Inaction over what, a made up accusation? Nah, I'd rather have them focus on domestic matters.

No. Ukraine was solidly part of the Ottoman Empire until late in the 18th Century

No, only a small part of southern Ukraine was. Don't mislead people.

As far as I'm concerned the US should embargo trade and travel with Russia and make it illegal to use the US Dollar and any aspect of the US banking system to conduct business with Russia

You will then need to buy Russian rubles to pay them for oil, for example. Because the US will still need to buy that. No need to be so bitter, though.
