While Jinping pretends to make peace meeting Putin then Zelensky Japan officially aligns with NATO, Australia, and Israel assisting Ukraine.

They do have an army, its just not called like that, its called Japanese Self-Defense Forces, since post-war constitution prohibited them from having a regular army. With the neighbors like North Korea and China you must have an army.

The SCOTUS whistleblower still hasn’t been caught yet, but this guy is immediately hunted down?

So Ukraine is apparently losing the war, and Biden’s been sending American troops there without Congressional authorization?

You mean the government lied to us?? Say it ain’t so!!

The president does have the power, as the commander in chief to send the troops into conflicts without congressional approval. He cant send them for an extended period of time, and he cant declare war...but he can send forces out.

The Wagner Group field leader sent out a video stating that Russia's troops are getting into it's way and it's reason for invasion is based on nothing but lies. Kremlin immediately denounces it. It cannot be long now before an official divorce.
https://www.yahoo.com/gma/russian-me...203300794.html

Here it's suggesting Wagner could attack Russian troops. Be nice if it coordinated with Ukraine and freed the occupied areas but its probably asking for too much. It's like Shredder hired Rat King to kill the Turtles, but the scummy opportunist that Rat King is isn't helping the Turtles so much as wanting to ruin Shredder's current plan before leaving the scene.

After Prigozhin hacked public TV broadcasts to deliver his condemnation of the invasion, a 400 vehicle-strong Wagner column is currently advancing on Moscow, and the city is on high alert. Checkpoints are being set up along the main highways and apparently the Internet, or at least Google, has been blocked in the entire country.

That is not true, at least for now. Basically no-one knows what is going on right now. Official news obfuscate everything. Independent sources basically spam various rumors, which can not checked.

I am not sure about about hacked TV stations - most likely those are lies. 400 vehicle-strong is also seem to be an exaggeration.

However, something do happen.
We are in for an interesting times anyway.

I am actually experiencing some indecisive confusion about the current perception of what is going on.

There are a lot of people beginning to take the position that Zelensky is some kind of "dictator" and that we shouldn't be helping them against being invaded. It's cognitive dissonance in it's purest form.

I feel like the calculus is simple. There are national borders, Putin is trying to impose his will in a flagrant invasion and crossed those borders and killed people. The end.

I dunno.

I've seen videos of the hacked broadcasts on the news. The fact that you, on the ground, aren't certain of what's going on is the regime propaganda working as intended.

Wagner forces have captured Rostov and suffered a couple of bombings already, while Putin delivers angry speeches. "Interesting" is putting it mildly...

I hope you and yours stay safe, and let the bastards take each other out.

Those people are pro-Russia trolls. Ignore them. Your calculus is quite correct. The real crux of the matter is that this invasion shouldn’t even have started, it only did because of the current void in leadership in the West.

There does seem to be some suspicious money laundering activity though, or are we supposed to believe it was really just an “honest mistake” that the Biden admin “accidentally” sent an additional $6.2 Billion dollars of U.S. taxpayer money to Ukraine because of a Pentagon accounting error?

https://apnews.com/article/ukraine-r...39d5b1973a44ef

The same admin who sends IRS agents to audit any small business transactions over $600.

That was before Zelensky's time, though.

Why would Wagner boss make a deal with Belarus's Lusenko and stop his March on Moscow? I have been finding this whole thing funny as far as Putin is concerned, but it seems like it didn't last. I was hoping the thug organization would help end the invasion much quicker.

Edit: It seems the Wagner Group boss will not be charged after all and go to Belarus while his army of henchmen sign contracts to work officially under Russian military command.

Rattling Putin enough to make him flee Moscow and hastily cobble together a deal to stop the coup isn't nothing. This was his Afghanistan moment right here. Russia is weak, Putin is weak, and now the whole world knows it. To be continued.
