I also made this thread partially because of the retarded war in the other Ukraine thread. Where if you don't support one side you must be an evil anti-reddit tankie! Or you are a liberal NATO America bootlicker! these people cannot be taken seriously. They looked at me as a child I even got moralized by some idiot.
No, fam. This isn't like the Israel-Palestine conflict. The Ukrainian proletariat is fighting Russian Proletariat over the ambitions of a single man, and against the wishes of even the Russian capitalists. Do not worry, though. Russia is going to lose, and lose badly.
How could the Russian proletariat have opposed Putin?>Do not worry, though. Russia is going to lose, and lose badly
I think it is more likely we'll see a stalemate.
That's not to say the Russian performance in the war hasn't been pathetic.
There are reports of RF soldiers looking to surrender in the Kherson region, and Russia has stopped shipping soldiers into UKR and is now recalling some. It's over, anon.
Well we will see. This operation has been a failure for the Russians.

idealist great man theory garbage
Individual actors can do bad things and it doesn't make it great man theory. If a single US president decided to give a nuclear launch and end humanity as we know it, he would definitely be the one changing history, but it doesn't make it great man history, since the mechanisms for him to do that were already there. Putin himself could end this war, but won't. You don't understand what is said by great man theory of history. You're just a fucking retard.
It was Putin's gamble to invade Ukraine. Putin gambled again just like he gambled with Georgia, Crimea, the separatist republics.
People in the west who take a side in far off hot conflicts and get emotionally attached to it come across as sports fans.
There are powerful men that singlehandedly make things happen. The problem was that all of history was explained like this.
