I keep reading the same narrative: "Putin won't stop at Ukraine - he threatens all of Europe."
Well, let's face it - I, as well as probably no one except Putin and his entourage, do not know, but I think I need to answer the basic question first:
So it is true, with Russia economically collapses, has weak army, has no soldiers, inexperienced conscripts have to buy equipment yourself, they don't have rocket chips and they are missing from the fridges and The Ukrainians are already driving the Russians out of their territory, or it is true that they have the second strongest army of the world and they threaten the whole of Europe and that army, if it wanted to, would probably occupy Ukraine in a matter of hours?
And that is precisely the basic question, according to which I think all further decision-making and especially peace negotiations should be based. But no one asks this basic question, and yet I think the answer to it is absolutely crucial for any further decision-making.
But which of these truths is true?
I'm afraid this is typical Orwellian doublethink – simply cannot be both, but still people believe both for some reason.
I also don't know how it is, but I know for sure that most governments and mainstream media have been lying about covid for AT LEAST the last two years, and the same media and governments are simultaneously pushing these truths on people for some purpose and creating a completely blinded pro-war spirit in them, and that to me it will come off as terribly dangerous anyway.
