I found it amusing in a demented way to read about Putin describing the crippling attack on the recently built (2018) Kerch Strait bridge this last week connecting Crimea with Russia as a terrorist attack.
This coming from a tyrant who has brutalized a population, raped it’s women and tortured it’s citizens, forcibly confiscated it’s precious children for Russian “reprogramming”, attacked nuclear plants with missiles and artillery demonstrating beyond idiot stupid contempt for region and environment, bombed hospitals and other civilian centric targets while his woeful army getting battlefield busted out and allegedly failing miserably and REPEATEDLY.
But bridge attack is an terrorist attack? THIS IS A WAR HE STARTED and as world lollygags into the 8th month of conflict it is becoming apparent there will be a “reckoning”. As the West feeds armaments to Ukraine that appear to be VERY EFFECTIVE in countering attacks from seemingly inadept Russian forces, how much longer will Putin tolerate this lethal support ? The Nord pipeline “sabotage” may be a Russian response if proven they did the deed but in this war one can never REALLY KNOW as both sides can benefit from escalations.
I personally harbor serious trepidations on veracity of battlefield reports coming out of Ukraine FROM BOTH SIDES so who really knows what is transpiring over there. Either way Halloween in Ukraine will certainly be a different type of terror.
