They don’t get the guns until they’ve cleared the border! :)

Biden missed a great opportunity to make the case for removing Russia’s seat on the Permanent/Security Council at the UN.
Zelenskyy made the point forcefully to the UN via video, saw that on ABC network news last night.

Reminds me of my dad and the Vietnam war. He got a job offer out of college working for a Naval contractor as a nuclear engineer doing classified work on sub and aircraft carrier reactors.

At that time students weren’t drafted and as a navy contractor he wouldn’t be drafted. However in the 3 weeks he took off after graduating and before his job started he was drafted. His draft board refused to let him stay for the job even after his job made the request.

My dad ended up not being drafted but only because he failed the physical due to a screwed up elbow he had after he broke his arm as a kid and they didn’t set it right.

Medvedchuk is part of Putin's inner circle. And getting him back to Russia at such a high price is a signal to the rest of his inner circle that he will take care of them, as long as they stand with him.

He is safe guarding his flanks.
And how many will trust him? He's stabbed his trusted in the back before, they know that.

Literally how Russia has won virtually every war it actually won.
Russia's birthrate is a fraction of what it used to be. It can't afford to lose a significant portion of it's men. And don't forget the sanctions, they will slowly strangle the Russian economy and war effort.

when the Russian opposition presented investigations into the wealth of Putin and his cronies, he replied "I will not respond to the fabrications of a liar hired by the Western secret services. "
How are you better than Putin?
One is making a statement where they are claiming the opposition is lying with no proof of such, aka he is only trying to protect himself (Putin). The other is making a statement that has already been proven and admitted by Tucker Carlson himself in the court of law admitting that he is a liar. (sandorski). If you can't see the obvious, than you are ignorant as fuck and a lost cause.

Lol at this point you are going to take his word for it. Also. You will be glad you did. Until then, onwards to the front comrade.
There is a free world out there. Proof? Trump. Trump happened. Trump got elected cause people have power. Misguided as they may be, as criminal as he is, it is the peoples provocative to fuck up - and learn from it.
All you have is Putin. And you will never grow smarter.

Not yet. Now they only take people with military service experience. But I will be in the next wave of mobilization, as I was trained in the military department at the institute. There is time to get a job at a military enterprise. My knowledge and skills will be more useful there than at the front.
Haha, good fucking luck comrade. Hope you still remember which end of the gun to hold.

Hey if you end up downrange, shoot yourself in the leg and find the nearest ukrainian unit to surrender to. Beats dying.

Don't forget to pack plenty of pairs of socks. Fresh socks are very important when marching for days and lying and sleeping in muddy holes. It's going to get really cold, and wet, too. So don't forget that.

yours is a truly staggering grade-school level of logic.

Also, your English is quite different, again, from the last version of you. Did that guy already get captured and sent off to the meat grinder?
