Tonight Russians are bombing the entire territory of Ukraine, including the cities of Lviv and Ivano-Frankivsk in the westernmost part of the country. This bizarre military strategy that can’t be explained by any reasonable scenario confirms what I said from the start: Russia is experiencing a collective freakout of enormous proportions.

This is scary, and there’s a strong temptation to hide from reality behind a fantasy of a simple, easy solution. But there’s no magic vaccine pill here.

    1. The only realistic and hopeful scenario is to defeat these people completely so that they won’t regroup and strike even more strongly in a couple of years:

      There'll be no better chance to defeat Putin than now. Because now he rushed Z and miscalculated. This miscalculation created a point of failure which should be exploited fully. Because if it isn't, Putin will just regroup and ally with China. Next war will be way worse than this

      Twenty years of mincing words and applying half measures haven’t worked. They won’t work in the future either.
