[T]here are far fewer people actually out protesting. You have to understand that ordinary people in Russia are scared out of their minds. On the first day of the conflict, almost 1,000 protesters were jailed across Russia for walking outside with as little as a piece of paper that said: I dont want war. According to the independent media source OVD-info, in the first four days of the war more than 5,200 people were arrested.
My friend spent time in jail for walking down the same street as the protesters. A professor of sociology, Grigory Yudin, was arrested in the centre of Moscow and reportedly beaten up in the back of an autozak (police bus).
Putin, who is so keen on history, is unknowingly digging his own grave. With Russia cut off from Swift and facing sanctions from the EU, the US, and the UK, itll take only a few years before it runs into extremely hard times. And when it does, people will not be afraid any more. If history teaches us anything, its that people even ones as stubborn and patient as the Russians will not tolerate a lack of food. When the money runs out, so will Putins clock.
And we the new generation of Russians will be waiting.
Now that they have pledged support to Putin and are going in to Ukraine.
The sudden realization that conservatives have been screwing you for a long time.
and a few other Dems? Did that happen? I didn't see it.
I don't know you, but all of you made my day.

An absolute train wreck of a story. The gospel of prosperity since long before Joel Osteen was known.
What did you think of the "virtual reality" aspect?
IMO, it sucked. There was so much "Virtual" on the screen, I couldn't see the fireworks or the Space Needle.
... because of his actions in the Jan 6 insurrection.
It's so well done, lots of beautiful decorations. Best of all, there is no forest of Christmas Tampons.
