Putin is a mad man. Russian aggression must be stopped. Attacks on Ukrainian cities have begun.

I was watching the speech of Joe Biden. I was absolutely horrified of what I saw. An old man who couldn't even give a speech for more than three minutes without starting to mumble and incoherently utter meaningless part-phrases. Is this guy senile?

Yeah. He isn't the most eloquent of speakers.

Then again, Trump was the same. - He could never speak surety and would always blame someone else if something went wrong... He would play games.

However... Just because someone has issues with public speaking, doesn't mean their intellectual fortitude is impacted in anyway... I mean. Case in point: Stephen Hawking was one of the smartest people in modern times, yet required the use of electronic aids to express himself.

Either way, Democracy voted for Biden. So Biden is what you got... Time to move on and work with whatever he puts forth.

That was the moment when Putin decided he can go after the Ukraine without fear of any reprisals. Seeing his worst "enemy" on tv with such an absolutely catastrophic performance was the get-go sign.

Now we will see umpteen politicians going on tv declaring "we are with the Ukraine",  "Putin bad guy" and all these blatherings really shows that the West has no guts. I give the Ukraine about 48 hours before their politicians run and the country is in Putin's full control.

And this WAS avoidable, but not with a quasi senile US president. And let's face it, the US would have had to bite the bullet and lead the coward pack (Europeans, all talk, no action).

To be fair, Trump was Pro-Russia anyway from my view... At-least under the surface. - Besides he really didn't want troops overseas which was a very strong election promise.
So if anything, this would have still occurred, but with far less political opposition.

Could it have been avoidable? Russia does it's own thing... So I would argue no.

The difference today verses 10 years ago however... Is that Russia doesn't actually need the USA or Europe anymore... The West empowered China's economics, which Russia is benefiting from...

Russia has also taken note of the Wests failure to contain China's progress/aggression in the Pacific over the past few decades.
