TOSS UP: Will Russia Invade Ukraine? [Open Discussion]

Biden is telling the U.S. that an impending invasion into Ukraine by Russia is imminent. Europe is saying a Russian invasion is not imminent. Surprisingly Ukraine is also saying an invasion is not imminent.

Why is the U.S. escalating this situation and causing American citizenry to become concerned about an invasion that possibly may not happen in the near future, if at all? What are your thoughts? Is the U.S. overreacting? Is Russia bluffing so Putin can strong-arm to get his own way? Has Ukraine misjudged the situation too soon? Are Europe and Ukraine being fooled by Russia? Is the U.S. spot on?

Our troops are in the area but will not be going into Ukraine. The reasoning is to strengthen the surrounding area. In light of the above was this really necessary if Putin is just bluffing?

Lastly, Pelosi, or as I like to call her “Holosi,” said it is critical that all her members vote to enforce the sovereignty of borders, not the U.S. southern border, but Ukraine’s borders. We have hit near the two-million mark of illegal entries into our nation. What would Pelosi stand to gain by voting to enforce Ukraine’s sovereignty and borders? Is Pelosi plotting to create a war because wars make money?

You answer these questions and tell me. есть у него.

  1. You are astounding. It is blind faith you are talking about and that is why we have the mess we do with Biden/Harris, AOC, and The Squad! Biden dumped the good for this nation that Trump did do and screwed us royally on so many levels I will not even fill in the blanks for you. Look at this nation, look at that demented and senile man and what he has done. I may be a cynic, but thank God I am not blind.

    By the way, you were mainly off-topic here. Let’s stick with the issues at hand. I answered your statements as a courtesy. It won’t happen again. Stay on the subject topic. We can dispute one another at another time when I post a topic on such issues. This is about the U.S., Russia, Ukraine, Biden, and Pelosi’s ignorant stance and for good measure, the so-called impending invasion.

  2. I don’t know anything about the Biden family’s investments in foreign oil. This is because I don’t believe more than a fifth of what I hear on the 24/7 “infotainment” channels and my interest in such things is knee-high to a grasshopper. But suppose you owned stock in a foreign energy company. Would rattling sabers increase the demand for oil, or decrease that demand? Which of those two brings the highest price per barrel?

    1. I too have little interest in Biden’s investments in Ukraine. On a personal level, I have tuned that part of sensational information off as for me what he does at this point is not relevant to his investments. Having said that I would imagine wars and rumors of wars would make a nice little profit for the already rich elitist.

  3. I certainly can’t prognosticate anymore than I have already…but I did find an Tolstoy quote [from War and Peace], that I thought was interesting with regard our status as spectators to the current issue:

    For people accustomed to think that plans of campaign and battles are made by generals—as any one of us sitting over a map in his study may imagine how he would have arranged things in this or that battle—the questions present themselves: Why did Kutuzov during the retreat not do this or that? Why did he not take up a position before reaching Fili? Why did he not retire at once by the Kaluga road, abandoning Moscow? and so on. People accustomed to think in that way forget, or do not know, the inevitable conditions which always limit the activities of any commander in chief. The activity of a commander in chief does not all resemble the activity we imagine to ourselves when we sit at ease in our studies examining some campaign on the map, with a certain number of troops on this and that side in a certain known locality, and begin our plans from some given moment.

    A commander in chief is never dealing with the beginning of any event—the position from which we always contemplate it. The commander in chief is always in the midst of a series of shifting events and so he never can at any moment consider the whole import of an event that is occurring. Moment by moment the event is imperceptibly shaping itself, and at every moment of this continuous, uninterrupted shaping of events the commander in chief is in the midst of a most complex play of intrigues, worries, contingencies, authorities, projects, counsels, threats, and deceptions and is continually obliged to reply to innumerable questions addressed to him, which constantly conflict with one another.

    1. Very true. My concern is after the mess Biden created in Afghanistan will he screw this up too. He cannot be trusted as he has diminished capacity. It is those around him calling shots. Like mustang pointed out what does he stand to gain? I suspect war would bring him a lot of money.

      1. I agree to a point, but while a POTUS…any POTUS, gets praise or flack for literally everything that occurs……no POTUS is so deeply involved in operational planning to have much of an effect. Biden will give go/no-go decisions and top-level direction [with the advise of his military advisors]…..but campaign planning occurs below his level.

        1. I agree. I am just concerned about his mental stability. He exhibits all the signs of dementia and if he were Trump, Pelosi et al would be marching up to have him removed or impeached, as should Biden be removed or impeached. He is a walking mess and the left is using it to their advantage.

  4. I just keep thinking of the line from Obummer…”Don’t underestimate Joe’s ability to f*** things up.” Truer words have never been said. Geesh. There’s no telling what’s going to happen in this instance.

  5. Excellent post, Elizabeth.

    Are we living in bizarro world, or what? It is almost impossible to discern the truth about the Russia-Ukraine situation, the safety of COVID vaccines, the actual need to COVID vaccines, the intractability of school boards with regard to CRT and the transgender agenda, etc. I could go on and on!

    I’ve never felt more politically powerless!

    I’m taking measures to protect both my mental health and my physical health. Those measures include reading novels, watching historical documentaries on YouTube and various offerings at Amazon Prime (including As We See It, a situation comedy about three autistic adults), taking a nap every day, playing with our two dogs, and enjoying my husband’s company.

    The above said, I refuse to give up! I do spend a few hours on the “political web” every morning. Overall, at the end of that time, I’m saddened by the state of our republic. As one of my former students used to say, when I handed out homework assignments “I feel doom!”

    Prayers for our nation!

  6. Thank you for the compliment on the post-AOW. I could not agree more with you. I too feel so powerless and that is what you capture, powerlessness. We all feel it. This blog gives me hope for the future even in the face of impending doom. It may all be for naught but I am glad I am giving it a helluva try. I will know when the time is right to set my writings aside. But this time I do it on my terms no matter how bad it gets. Yes, pray for this nation.
