Satellite imagery taken today showed a large deployment of Russian ground troops moving in the direction of the Ukrainian capital Kyiv from approximately 40 miles (64 km) away, a private U.S. company said. (snip) a deployment comprised of hundreds of military vehicles and extending more than 3.25 miles (5 km). (snip) As Russian troops draw closer to the Ukrainian capital, Kyiv's mayor is filled with pride over his citizens' spirit but remains anxious about how long they can hold out.


Please, Lord, help the defenders. This is no way to give glory to God, by killing the innocent. Not by strength...

I think Putin is insane. It is frightening to think he has the power to launch nuclear weapons.

Please take a minute to read the ConservativeTreeHouse article linked by @GirlwithaCurl. Much of what we are seeing is psyops and fake news. Yes, Russia has certainly invaded and clearly intends to secure their historic warm water port. Biden's major concern should be the records of money laundering through this most corrupt of governments. I think it's frightening to realize that Biden has the power to launch nuclear weapons. JFK turned down his advisors' encouragement to invade Cuba. Biden...pfft.

A 3-mile ling target; too bad nobody either planned for it, or put in place the solution for taking it out, but rather have simply jawboned. Yeah another example of domestic and international stupidity in dealing with the obvious, or rather, ignoring dealing with the obvious. “What fools these mortals be!”

The one thing I fear most in this is that Ukraine is arming civilians. As evil as Putin is, so far he has pretty much avoided most civilian targets -- or the civilian death toll would be thousands, not a couple of hundred, in a full-scale invasion. When you arm civilians, and get them to do guerilla warfare (like Molotov Cocktails), you make all civilians into "enemy combatants". That is all the excuse Russia needs to feel totally justified in targeting all civilians. And if this stretches out for too long, they will go "scorched earth" and target everybody -- using everything this side of nukes to do it.

The Russkies know about urban warfare and how bad it can be for the attacker. They are to lay siege to the city and pound it with artillery. The Ukrainians need to attack before the Russians can get a perimeter in place.

Beware media reporting and analysis. Russia has not failed to take Kyiv. In order to take it they would have to destroy it, think Berlin 1945. I haven’t seen any evidence when they pan the cameras during broadcasts, except for the errant missile. This is day FOUR of the conflict, we could have weeks, months or years to go, think Afghanistan. More importantly, has anyone noticed that we have seen nothing from the Russians? The Ukrainians are feeding the media constantly. What happened to the Ukrainian armor out in the field? The Russians made it to Kyiv, what happened to Ukrainian resistance on the way? Have Ukrainian forces on the Donbas been cutoff, surrounded, bypassed? Do Ukrainian forces control anything outside cities in the east? Some blown up tanks and vehicles is exactly what happened to the US in Iraq due IEDs and RPGs but it didn’t change the end result. The Russians may not be running a Blitzkrieg, but they don’t have to. Ukraine cannot drive out the Russians but they can make it dangerous in the cities and for the careless airman. They say Putin is getting desperate. It seems to me handing out automatic weapons and Molotov cocktails to untrained civilians to face heavy machine guns and tanks is the very definition of desperate.

The Ukrainians are flying Turkish stealthy drones with missile firing capability. I have seen several videos of them destroying armored vehicles from overhead. This armored column could be a juicy target for that system. A-10s needed, the Bayraktar TB2 drones with apparently capability to carry four strike missiles on each drone are there. One video showed a missile strike on a Buk SAM missile launcher vehicle. These are solid fuel rockets, and have at least four of these large rockets ( 18 ft long x 15" diam) often with reloads stored below the four ready to launch rockets. The solid rocket fuel blew up and it burns furiously, just like when powering the rocket, hideous incendiary, impossible to extinguish, it has it's fuel and oxidizer mixed in, will NOT go out until all consumed. You don't want to be near this if hit. A Buk missile is what shot down the airliner over part of Ukraine's captured area a few years back. NATO designation is Gadfly SA-11.

Oh boy, Lara Logan appeared for an interview with Tucker Carlson and shouts a big trumpet. In essence, Ms. Logan points out the current situation in Afghanistan is exactly the outcome those controlling the Biden administration want. There is a benefit to someone or some group in the current outcome; because if there wasn’t, the outcome would be different. I happen to agree with this perspective because there are so many options that could have been taken before this point in the crisis was reached. We have seen this play out before [Bathtub Principle] where a crisis is created because the crisis has a purpose.

As the midterm 2022 elections approach, the expectation is that, with thirty Democrat House retirements and the continued unraveling of the Biden Administration, the Dems are about to experience historic losses in both the House and Senate. However, the evil geniuses within the Democrat party have identified the Fourteenth Amendment as a vehicle to thwart Republican dreams of achieving a massive political realignment. Therefore, it may be shortsighted to count the one-time party of Jefferson as down-and-out until the last glimmering frenzy has been extinguished. In 1868, the Fourteenth Amendment was amended to add Section 3, also known as the Disqualification Clause.

I’m having a problem using the president’s formal title and name together. It’s not a matter of Republican disrespect for a Democrat. I referred to both Barack Obama and Bill Clinton by their presidential titles. It’s a matter of legitimacy. Over half of all Americans now believe that fraud affected the outcome of the last Presidential election. The Arizona election audit didn’t prove that the Donald won, as many hoped. But it did prove that we don’t really know who won that state. Given the election shenanigans around the country in November 2020, there is certainly justification to question the outcome.
