for First Day Amid Brave Ukrainian Defense

The Russian invasion of Ukraine isn’t going as easily as I think Vladimir Putin thought it would go. As we noted earlier, they are facing some tough fighting from the Ukrainians as well as thousands of protesters in Russia who have come out against the war. That’s quite something, given the oppressive state of Russia and how they would face immediate retribution. Yet, protesters have come out anyway. Ukraine fought back to recapture an airport the Russians had taken. So, Russia isn’t going to be able to do what they wanted because they haven’t met the goals they were trying to meet by now – which was to seize all

Ukraine, capture a few more Russian soldiers and make political prisoners out of them. Then a little waterboarding followed by having them denounce Putie and Russia. An execution or beheading or two will get Putie's attention and the Russian population will notice in horror. Yes, this is heinous but war is hell.

Ukraine cannot win this war. Period. Russia has too many men and too many resources. All that dragging this out is going to do is cost a lot of Ukrainian lives and destruction to property. Whether it is a few days or a few weeks, Russia will rule Ukraine again (as they have for most of the last 100 years). The only question is how many dead women and children are their "heroics" going to cost the Ukrainians. The only thing that could stop Russia is for NATO to declare WW-3 on Russia, which they will not do over a non-member state since they really don't want to see their women and children killed too. The Russians are not nice people. They will kill, maim, torture, carpet bomb, and basically kill and destroy everything and everyone they have to do accomplish their goals. Too darn bad the USA doesn't have a strong leader who could actually deal with Putin strong leader to strong leader. That could have actually stopped all this (like it did under President Trump for 4 years). But we have a weak and impotent doddering old fool like Senile Joe bidet. So Ukraine is reamed!!!

The Russians seem to have achieved a lot in two days. Air supremacy, amphibious landing in Odessa, destruction of the Ukrainian fleet in port, destruction of all military airports, uncontested naval control of the Black Sea, pouring North from Crimea and reopening blocked water supply for Crimea, tank columns streaming south from Belarus. Not too shabby to enter the Ukranian defensive perimeter like hot knife through butter. Ukrainian Karens for eight years besieged Donbass, wanted US to conquer Russian Crimea for them. Sorry but not sorry buddies, go have Alexandra Chalupa, Victoria Nuland, Fiona Hill, and Colonel Alexander Vindman take your chestnuts out of the fire. I don’t like Ukraine since they arranged the Trump impeachment.

I seem to recall CNN declaring Iraq a quagmire 72 hours into the invasion. These experts don't know whats happening on the ground nor what the objectives are. Russia hasn't been in a real war in a very long time. They may be a bit rusty.

I feel sad for the predicament Ukraine is in, but they must solve their own problems. And feckless Ukrainians like Vindman, who wreaked havoc on our President's (DJT) administration make it harder to sympathize with them. And it's good that they are passing out guns to citizens, but maybe they wouldn't have to do that if they hadn't take their guns in the first place.

Even if that is true it may or may not have any significance at all. The Von Schlieffen was highly dependent on timing where hours mattered let alone days. The delays bought time for defenses to be thrown up culminating in the all too familiar trench war stalemate. I fail to see a parallel in Ukraine. Zelensky gets, let's say a day. So he passes out a few more AK 47 to 10 year old's? There's no cavalry on the way there's no BEF on the way, there's no fragile time dependent plan to collapse. In conclusion, so what.

"Russia Fails to Reach Objectives". That would be the "objective" the author just dreamed up that was even more catastrophic than losing their air defense system in a few hours. That rhetoric is a trite and meaningless exercise. In the movies, every man defending his honor takes out 1,000 enemy fighters. In war, it makes a tiny fraction of a difference. Russia has several times the military resources, which means everything. If this is decided on the battlefield between Ukraine and Russia, then it's already done.

A number of posters on this thread seem to forget that we didn't win the Vietnam War, and the Soviet Union lost in Afghanistan. In both cases, the much smaller and weaker country held off the larger and stronger one. War is as much political as it is military.

This author doesn't know or understand why Russia is there. They did achieve a lot of their objectives. Seven out of the 11 Bio Labs, making the virus for the next Pandemic (as stated by Bill Gates) were destroyed. This isn't about Russia invading, it's about taking down the Deep State that has possessed that country. Who was the largest contributor to Hillery's campaign and the Clinton Foundation? Soros? BLM? Democrats? NO it was the Ukraine. I do believe Putin and Trump are on the same page here. Let's not judge to quickly here.

Wow, #20. I haven’t heard that theory. If true, that’s the best news I’ve heard in 2 years. It actually would answer a lot of questions that I have about this whole Russia/Ukraine thing. It’s interesting to me that the world is embracing the “poor Ukraine, evil Russia” narrative. I have learned enough in my lifetime to know that the immediate narrative is usually 180 degrees from the truth. Thanks for your post.

History seems to repeat itself, doesn't it? When a country is invaded by a superior force the only choice is to surrender the flat land you can't hold and consolidate your power into a region you can fight from. Move the government --- basically exile --- into that area and then resort to guerilla warfare ... while begging other countries to help. The record shows that resistance by power alone is usually futile but by not giving them easy targets, you save civilians. Make one land area impossible to get into without lots of heavy costs in life & material. Then demand or beg the UN, the European Union, neighboring counties, etc. help you. And pray you can hold out better & longer than the Alamo! Help may not ever arrive but truly brutal scenery and the loss of thousands of Russian lives is not something Putin can tolerate for long.

If Russia were supplying arms and funding to Cuba and threatening to add it to the Warsaw pact, would we be justified in military intervention? We used to think so. Now switch out the players. Ukraine shares a border with Russia. We've supplied arms and funding and threatened to add Ukraine to NATO. What kind of pink hat would Putin be if he didn't protect his country? Right now we're facing a modern-day Cuban Missile Crisis, except we are the antagonists this time. The wiser course might just be to back down like Khrushchev did.

Re: #3 - Ho Chi Minh begs your pardon. The Russians had a similar experience to our Vietnam debacle in Afghanistan up the Mujahideen. The Muslims were aided by U. S. weapons, small arms and shoulder-fired rockets, put to devastating use against Russian helicopters, even if amounted to only a fraction of the weaponry Biden intentionally left for the Taliban in Afghanistan. If those weapons had made it to Ukraine, then the story may not be playing out as you see it on TV. Mainly what is on TV is Russian propaganda intended to put fear in the West regarding the mighty capabilities of the Russian military. Why else would Fox be going on about Russian Marines storming beaches in SE Ukraine? Was there any tactical significance to that or was it more like our cheesy recruiting commercials of the 1980s?

All the US media talking heads who have swung into a big useless phycological warfare and propaganda campaign against Russia should Instead do something useful, like traveling over to Ukraine, taking a rifle, and fighting against the Russian forces. Those media hacks were asking really dumb questions in DC yesterday, like if the Ukrainian President is captured by the Russians if Biden would send the US 82nd Airborne Division into Ukraine to rescue the Ukrainian President from the Russian Army, if Biden would order the US Air Force to overfly Ukraine and drop military supplies to the Ukrainians for use against the Russian military, and if Biden will authorize US cyber attacks against Russia, that obviously would be modern warlike attacks, that would result in Russian retaliatory cyber attacks against U.S. businesses and government entities in the USA? Huh!

Re: #3 - Based on a series of calls for the Ukrainians to surrender on multiple threads, does that logic apply to Israel? If not, why not? Their geopolitical position appears more tenuous than that of Ukraine. They are beset on all sides by hostile, Islamic regimes, brimming over with centuries-long hatred towards Jews and hated by American leftists, who control much of our federal government.

"1st Day Objectives"?? Did you think Europe's 2nd largest country with Europe's third largest Military was going to fall in ONE Day? They are not "France". Perhaps a better prediction of what is going to happen here is something similar to an Israeli war...did they hold everything all of the way to the Suez? No...they won it all the hard way...then handed it all back...except for what they required as "A defensible border" Ukraine will fight harder than the arabs did, Russia will lose many more men/planes/tanks than the Israelis did, They could not hold Afghanistan which was mostly wide open country, they could not rapidly prevail in Syria which had more urban areas, but that had to be flattened block by block with a much smaller resistance force than Ukraine...They face a Fallujah writ yuuuuge if they try to take and hold the entire country. I think what they will do is reduce Ukraine ability to "Project Force", and withdraw... solidifying the "Independent" Dunbas territories and at least temporarily maintaining a coastal footprint, though offering open ports to "Approved" cargoes/carriers.

Kyiv - A defiant President Volodymyr Zelenskiy said Kyiv remained under Ukrainian control on Saturday as Russian forces renewed their assault, pounding the capital and other cities with artillery and cruise missiles. A U.S. defence official said Ukraine's forces were putting up "very determined resistance" to the three-pronged Russian advance that has sent hundreds of thousands of Ukrainians fleeing westwards, clogging major highways and railway lines. "We have withstood and are successfully repelling enemy attacks. The fighting goes on," Zelenskiy said in a video message from the streets of Kyiv posted on his social media.
Ukrainian President Zelensky Tells Russia

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky is remaining in Kyiv as the city remains under intense assault from Russian forces desperately trying to take the capital city. As we’ve reported, Vladimir Putin’s forces have suffered heavy losses over the first few days of the invasion, running into resistance they clearly didn’t expect. On Friday, Russia offered terms of peace that amounted to a full capitulation, demanding neutrality, ceding of territory, and disarmament. The Ukrainians did not immediately respond, indicating they might be willing to negotiate. That appears to no longer be the case, though, with Zelensky telling the Russians to pound sand.

As RedState reported earlier on Friday, Vladimir Putin’s plan to overtake Ukraine is not going particularly well. The four-pronged attack has stretched supply lines thin and weakened Russia’s ability to strike the decisive blow it was looking for. Specifically, plans to take the capital city of Kyiv have fallen well short of expectations and the resistance there now represents a huge problem for Russian forces starting a bloody urban conflict in the face. Multiple airborne assaults meant to take the city have been rebuffed since the invasion began, and Ukraine has now struck a major blow on that front, downing an Il-76 transport plane. With a capacity

Despite Russian forces assaulting air defence and missile systems, Ukraine’s air force was flying sorties. The country’s Ministry of Defence celebrated the reporting for duty of dozens of former pilots. There are lots of stories of Ukrainian heroism;

President Joe Biden will nominate federal Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson on Friday to replace Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer, which would make her the first black woman on the high court's bench should she be confirmed by the Senate. Breyer announced his retirement last month after 28 years on the Supreme Court, effective when the current term ends this summer. That paved the way for Biden to fulfill his 2020 campaign promise of nominating a black woman as a Supreme Court justice.

The Secret Service is telling Republican investigators that it cannot find communications related to Hunter Biden’s travels for 2010, 2011, or 2013 — when President Joe Biden was the vice president. Republican Sens. Chuck Grassley of Iowa and Ron Johnson of Wisconsin sent the Secret Service a letter last month seeking unredacted records tied to Hunter Biden’s travels between January 2009 and January 2017. They asked for full travel records and criticized the agency for years of “inappropriate redactions” — especially related to a controversial Kazakhstan trip in 2014. The senators also lamented that three years of documents seemed to be missing entirely.

In an ideal world, maybe we could ignore what's happening in Ukraine but we have to see the world as it is, not how we want it to be: Russia is calling and wants its Ukraine back. I generally appreciate Tucker Carlson, but every time he discusses Ukraine and Russia, I bristle — especially when he contends that America has no interest in Ukraine. I know some of you might agree with Carlson, but you can be a solid conservative who is just as war-weary as the next guy and still see a security interest in Ukraine without being a neocon.

Reporters were quick to take the president to task over what appeared to be a changing stance on whether sanctions, economic or otherwise, were effective in any way. 'No one expected the sanctions to prevent anything from happening,' Biden said in what was a complete reversal to what he had said previously.
