Run the jewels
The black hole of Ukraine-related bullshit looks deeper than ever, but for the hour-long interview below about what it’s actually like to be a infantryman in a hole in the middle of nowhere during the 10th year of the war with Russia.
Valeriy’s tale illustrates the the gigantic disconnect between CNN’s situation room, reality, more looming disaster, Ukraine boosterism and neverending lame attempts at self-promotion.
Weak condemnation and endless delays in acknowledging that Russia blew up Kakhovka dam demonstrates Putin can get away with much worse than ecocide, so we’re left waiting for the next catastrophe with Luke and Nolan.
Of the many stains left across Internet this week by the current crop of idiotarians – rubber-stamp obviousness being a close-to-hand example – surely one of the greasiest is more grousing by an independent defense consultant about Russian propaganda and social media.
Nolan thinks we all should be more courageous and resist bothsidesism.
Which brings me to two of my least favorite old white cats, David and Bohdan.
Get that damned little swine out of here! It’s trying to get itself in with you. It’s trying for even more advantage. It’s obsessed with its gut just like a bloody rugby ball. Now it will die, it will die!
The last time I encountered David, Russia’s GRU had transformed him into an Internet lure for unsuspecting Russia well-wishers. But that’s another story.
