    Col Douglas Macgregor’s take on this war: “There is no strategy.”

    His argument is that the current Western leadership, both in the US and the EU, act only on impulse, they are creatures of emotion without the ability to plan, and they have no ability to evaluate loner term outcomes. It’s a fancy way of calling them fools.

    Personally … I tend to believe there is more knavery than foolery afoot, but I’m sure there are more than a handful of useful idiots in positions of power. I disagree that Russia is so clever with precision bombing … they did not use precision in Aleppo to shoot around the civilian human shields and hit ISIS … they simply used a lot of bombs and won the battle by brute force. They did much the same at Mariupol … not precise but hard and effective. The sanctions are hurting Russia, but not enough to stop them, and Russian people are good at gritting their teeth and getting on with it.

    Its all virtue signaling and clowning Tel, the Joker beats the Knave.

    I thought Elensky no longer used the V and Z in his name because the Russians use them in the serial numbers on their tanks and guns. Clown world.

    Universities ban and cancel almost everybody who is funny or different. But they happy to host some war mongering fraudulent grifter. Clown World.

    There does seem to be a European long term objective, which is to go “carbon neutral”. The Thunbergist kiddies demand it, and they expect that the adults will come up with a solution to make it all possible. And fight a carbon neutral war at the same time. Clown world.

    But I am sure the knaves are laughing all the way to the bank.

    If seeing the elites of Australian academe behave like that doesn’t tell you Ukraine is not what you’re being told it is, nothing will.

    (Do remember to scroll at that link).

    These are the same people who worshipped Russia for decades.

    The same people who cheered Islamic terrorists for 20 years and banned ‘right-wing’ speakers from their campuses.

    Ironically, the Western left only hates Russia now because it isn’t left-wing enough.

    And The Russian Orthodox Church might become the last bastion of Christianity in secular Europe.

  6. Not Trampis says:

    The man was elected .
    Russia is IMPLODING
    Western right doesn’t like Russia only. Only the apologists are supporting them now and they are reactionaries not conservatives.

  7. NoFixedAddress says:

    Never, ever, ever let an ANU graduate near anything… including the hamburger cooker.

  8. False Equivalence says:

    NFA: we agree. Pester Garrett, Nick Minchin (who incidentally dated the same women) and many others speak to the weird effect of ANU.
