    Is anyone else suspicious on why there hasn't been even a hint or efforts at starting peace talks? Where is the leadership to try and bring the 2 sides together to stop the death? Why is there no urgency to negotiate a cease-fire and get some initial demands on the table?

    They will have to move though, to warmer weather to get those things. I don't think that Alaska gives as much to illegals. But Hollywood California will give them a parade, and they'll be Ukrainian heroes.

    Peter King...... "Some 200,000 Russians – mostly men – have escaped, including through a thin gorge separating Russia from the country of Georgia. Wrote Ivanova and Porter:

    DARIALI, Georgia — They are bus drivers, programmers, photographers, bankers. They have driven for hours, bribed their way through many police checkpoints — spending a month’s wages in some cases — and then waited at the border, most of them for days, in a traffic jam that stretched for miles.

    Many grabbed their passports, abandoned their cars and crossed the frontier on foot, fearing that Russia would slam shut one of the last, precious routes to leave the country. The Kremlin dispatched teams to border crossings to weed out draft-eligible men and hand them conscription notices, and rumors spread on social media that it would seal the border.

    Most of those who left had no idea when they would return home, if ever."

    Russian Army is cooked. Their lines are collapsing on both fronts. Their corruption/lack of logistics & ineffective chain of command has left RF forces in shambles.

    ~25K of Russia's best remaining soldiers are trapped on the West side of the Dnipro on the Kherson front. Bridges have been compromised by HIMARS, preventing those troops from being supplied or the ability to retreat. It's going to be a slaughter.

    They have no offensive capability remaining.

    21/ And if the ‘professional’ Russian military that has been trained and re-equipped over the last decade can’t prevail in Ukraine, it is extraordinarily unlikely that a mass of conscripts with just weeks of training will provide a solution to Putin’s territory aspirations.

    The West needs to pour on more military aid at this point. Germany still under performing in the category of military aid, especially heavy weapons. Even old retired Leopard 1 tanks would be helpful for Ukraine. Leopard tank series probably better adapted to the conditions and terrain of the Ukraine than the M1 Abrams tank. The recent Kharkiv offensive seems to have been spearheaded by a blitzkrieg of humvee's and similar vehicles which is interesting...Ukrainian tactical smarts plus speed.
    I think the USA has been doing their part. I just wish rest of the world would step up too. The Ukrainian people have been inspiring.

    Got to give Ukraine props, they are smart dudes. They get the media talking about the coming Southern offensive and get the Russian to move troops from the North and then the Ukrainians attack in the North.

    Good thing Putin was bluffing all along. Can't imagine what it would look like if Russia actually invaded Ukraine.

    "Russia is a little more resilient than expected...the West talks a good game, but doesn't fully walk the walk."

    Couldn't agree more.
