      We should totally take Canada. They likely wouldn't even really resist and no one would come to help them. Think of the gold medals!!

          Lot of dick wagging over in Eastern Europe.

            I did some testing in a high school yesterday, and one room had a big Rand McNally map of Europe pulled down (they still make those??). I was tempted to grab a red marker and move the red line between Russia and Crimea over between Crimea and Ukraine. Might be some other borders shifting soon. Keeping ol' Rand and McNally busy.

                The folks at Worldle are probably convening emergency sessions to game out scenarios right now, too.

                  I really wonder why Putin is doing this except out of some sociopathic need to always have more? They say his net worth could be close to $200 billion. He's enriched all his oligarch buddies. At this point he should be in a "hold" position and keeping Europe hooked on Russian natural gas. But I guess we can't grasp his old Soviet mindset and missing that old USSR map.

                    This is a good primer on Russia's and Europe's natural gas positions.



                    FRANKFURT, Germany (AP) — German Chancellor Olaf Scholz has suspended the certification process for the Nord Stream 2 natural gas pipeline after Russia recognized separatist-held regions in eastern Ukraine .

                      Putin thinks he's going to restore the Russian Empire. Ukraine's vote for independence in 1991 was pretty much the end of the former USSR. He hasn't forgotten.

                      This could get pretty ugly if sanctions don't work.

                        So now the new pivot by the Republicans/MAGAs is that Putin is simply defending himself against NATO aggression.

                          Trump praises Putin's 'genius' plan to invade Ukraine: 'You gotta say that’s pretty savvy'

                          Former President Donald Trump on Tuesday called Vladimir Putin a "genius" after the Russian president made moves to take over parts of Ukraine.

                          Trump made the remarks during an interview with conservative podcaster Buck Sexton.

                          "I went in yesterday and there was a television screen, and I said, 'This is genius,'" Trump recalled. "Putin declares a big portion of the Ukraine — of Ukraine -- Putin declares it as independent. Oh, that’s wonderful."

                          "I said, 'How smart is that?'" the former U.S. president continued. "And he’s gonna go in and be a peacekeeper. That’s the strongest peace force… We could use that on our southern border. That’s the strongest peace force I’ve ever seen. There were more army tanks than I’ve ever seen. They’re gonna keep peace all right. No, but think of it. Here’s a guy who’s very savvy."

                          Trump added: "But here’s a guy that says, you know, 'I’m gonna declare a big portion of Ukraine independent,' he used the word 'independent' and 'we’re gonna go out and we’re gonna go in and we’re gonna help keep peace.' You gotta say that’s pretty savvy. And you know what the response was from Biden? There was no response. They didn’t have one for that. No, it’s very sad. Very sad."

                              I wonder if Mexico ever paid off that wall they built on the southern border?

                              Savvy indeed.
