    It seems to me that Russia has lost this war.

    I've been following this since yesterday. I have read several reports of Putin activating what he calls antiterrorism forces in other regions. Unfortunately, there are no details yet about where or who else is causing him problems. Probably a typical Russian lockdown on information is in effect.

    Putin has had a long run so he is probably due for being removed in typical Russian fashion. The rest of the worlds biggest concern is who will end up controlling Russia's approx 4000 nukes. We live in interesting times and unfortunately that can be just a bit worrisome. Bob

    Putin is an absolute tyrant and rules that way.

    One can only hope Putin falls along with all of his corrupt friends both civilian and military. It would be good for the world to have Russia a free and a Republic in more than name.

    My Russian wife says the Russian people have been enslaved for a thousand years, first by the Tsars, than by the Commies, than by the Russian mafia now by the Oligarcks/Putin.

    She has used the members of her family as examples as to why they care little about freedom as we know it. As long as their bellies are full, they don't have to work or at least not very hard and the vodka keeps flowing they are good to go!!

    She hates Russia and the Russian people.

    Thanks for the insight. I was watching a show about the Vikings and how they traveled down the River Don and enslaved the peasants in thr 9th century.

    The invaders were known as Rus (roos).
