"The first casualty in any conflict is the truth."
Sooo... you believe Putin?  Got it...
In a boat at sea one of the men began to bore a hole in the bottom of the boat. On being remonstrating with, he answered, "I am only boring under my own seat." "Yes," said his companions, "but when the sea rushes in we shall all be drowned with you."

Now, now, BT.  How can you come up with such a supposition? Was it meant to troll me, or are you hallucinating?

You have it reversed.  You put your way of thinking into the many situations that seem to be above your head.  That was a quote from a California Republican Senator in 1918.  From personal experience, I have to agree with him.  I never mentioned anyone, especially Putin.  Where do you come up with this sort of stuff?  Must you critique many posters here with your rubbish?

AND yet... I still have no idea what you are referring to. Is there some sort of point your trying to make regarding the Ukraine situation or are we just going to post random quotes from 20th century politicians... happy to debate or discuss but need to understand your point...

Marinka, Ukraine – Valentina Gordeyeva realised something was coming when the tops of nearby fir trees started to shake but as she ran to shelter in a nearby shop, a shard of shrapnel pierced the soft flesh of her left hand.

“I was holding a bag and felt pain, and then I saw blood running down my bag,” the 65-year-old said, her thumb and wrist now bandaged after she became one of four civilians wounded in shelling by Russian-backed separatists since Thursday....

Putin warns Kyiv, "You want decommunization? We will show you what it’s like."  Putin recognizes break away regions effectively nullifying the Minsk accords... the war has already begun...

^ Not only did Putin recognize them but he is now moving in Russian "peacekeeping" forces to them, essentially making them Russian territory.  Now, with his fake pretext of border skirmishes, he will have what he wants to justify to his people invading Ukraine.  A lesson in the power of propaganda, lies, disinformation and controlling dissent (not unlike what we are seeing today close at home).

Right off the bat, if Putin does invade, I hope Ukraine can destroy Putin's recently built multi-billon dollar bridge from Russia to Crimea, for starters.  Putin needs to suffer economically, physically and emotionally.  Only then, one can hope, may the Russian people remove him from office, voluntarily or involuntarily.
