Like any other war.
200,000 Russian casualties so far — and counting.
How very Republican… they ALSO want live babies so they can turn them into dead soldiers!
A sad tale old as Man.
It was ever thus.
Complete autonomy for women, health care, birth control and abortion are better ways of controlling over population.
Watch the left try to deflect this onto Republicans. We all know this Russian strategy is born out of left wing ideology.
History is an account, mostly false, of events, mostly unimportant, which are brought about by rulers, mostly knaves, and soldiers, mostly fools.
That’s what war is.
Putin is smaller by quite a bit than Mussolini was, so if anybody wants to use him for a “decoration”……….
Did you see the ads Putin has put out making being a soldier easy money? Does not reflect the reality of aged equipment, flak vests made out of foam, having to buy their own uniforms, etc. etc. etc.
Russia again uses the human wave strategy.
…and it’s one, two, three, what are we fightin’ for?
i heard a report today that Putin’s vaunted Wagner group is getting their ar$es handed to them in Ukraine. It’s not any under-equipped, under-trained bunch they’re facing, unlike in Syria. They’ve extended their recruitment to convicts in return for full pardons (for any survivors) & the report was that some 40,000 cons jumped at the chance, sustaining an estimated 80% casualty rate as they were put in the frontline units. This speaks volumes about the state of prisons in the former USSR.
They are by definition mere “cannon fodder,” and Putin has cleverly and effectively reduced his prison population. It’s a win-win for him no matter the results on the battlefield.
Putin is practicing genocide at home and in Ukraine. Stalin would be proud of him.
They been doing that since WWII
During Viet Nam, Bill Mauldin did a very similar cartoon…
The meat grinder of war….
Russia just throws bodies at their foes. Untrained ones. Cannon fodder.
Body counts, on either side, are meaningless to shootin’ putin.
Counts as high as 200,000 and this spring is going to be brutal because they’ll have people who are not trained and not equipped going against a Ukrainian armed force that has become very efficient and effective. I hope the friends of Ukraine are able to supply them quickly enough.
Putin is sending poorly trained conscripts to face an enemy that’s been blowing up tanks and killing Russians since last February.
War doesn’t determine who’s right, only who’s left.
having been born unwanted and unloved (republican parents) I was lucky to survive childhood, still have scars on my back from the old cloth wrap coffee pot cords. No they condemned innocent children to a life of torment from parents who did not want them; only reason for them to do that is to support their human trafficking, pedophiles, and child molester’s financial supporter
