    Not Russia. He's and expert in Realist International relations theory. His studies are to help understand nation states conflict. I'm not suggesting he is an historical expert of any sort.

    I first read him in the early 90's when he was telling all the End of History types that they were full of shit and that Interstate disputes would continue despite American Hegemony. Also read his and Walts book on the Israeli lobby and how it effects foreign policy. He's a very smart guy.

    Yep. And he and Ritter are buddies. Weird isn't it. I'm not going to split hairs. Prof Mearsheimer has made and makes the argument in defense of Russian interests on all counts for over a generation.. I'm not throwing out all conclusions he makes based on Realist theory. On another note. This video is worth watching. Lines up with what Ritter, McGregor and some others are suggesting too. I think he's full of crap about suggesting the the West ever suggested they would start a nuclear war, but he's spot on about alot of the main points.

    But here's the crux. Scott Ritter Mearsheimer and Steven Walt come from the same school of belief on international politics. Ritter isn't the academic expert, but he developed his beliefs based on his experience. I find it kind of strange that you don't know this. He quotes him often. He has been involved in lectures and seminars since the early 2000's with both men speaking on these issues. I think you might need to rethink calling Mearsheimer and idiot. These guys have been right about the whole damn course of international politics for decades. I was reading Mearsheimer and Walt in my college days. There are very few International Relations thinkers who are as clear and as accurate on what causes international conflict than these two guys. Nobody is 100% truth. Ritter is great, but just because it aligns with your belief so much doesn't make it absolute. I am not going to nitpick Ritter's false assumptions and analysis. That' throwing the baby out with the bath water. He's very spot on about the overall situation. I agree with you on that. But they are all from the same school of analysis.

    Who should we be listening to in order to learn about the International relations situation in this region then? If Professor Mearsheimer isn't the one, I'm all ears on your recommedation.

    Then I guess John Mearsheimer who is one of like maybe a handful of of voices who has been talking about this since 2004 is an idiot?

    Anyone predicting exact time frames for biblical prophecy should be completely dismissed. yeah it's fun and all and I get that reading books like Late Great Planet Earth raises the hair on you arms, but the Bible explicitly says this is false prophecy.

    I have found Lee to be very objective. Haven't seen anything whitewashed or trying to sway opinion toward Ukraine. it's just information he presents. If he took an active role in actually commentating on what the material means, then yeah I'd be skeptical. In other words. He hasn't changed my opinion on who is winning this war or losing from any bias. Still think Russia has this.

    So has Russia conceded this area? Seems kinda strange to cede ground in a war where you main objective is to control territory strategic locations especially when you are engaged with a Near Peer enemy? It's not impossible but it's strategically rare and considered absolutely retarded to give ground to "trap" someone. I'm sure there are some examples of military strategists going against this rule and succeeding. I'm doubting there is any General in this war that is that talented.

    yes. I have REALLY been following it. Do you know who Eva Bartlett is? She's literally on the ground in Ukraine. How about Rob Lee? He's literally on the ground too and probably one of the few objective persons covering this. I don't dispute anything you have said AND the Russian military has taken a huge brunt of casualties in a addition to all of this. If you follow Lee, all you see is Russian armor and vehicles strewn all over the place. Sorry, that's alot of military hardware and dead bodys in heaps in his reporting. Offensive operations to control ground is high casualty operations. It's just not logical.

    Excellent take. I heard an interview with Scott Horton suggesting the same. Which is why the South assault by Ukraine failed.

    Look I've been following this for a while and I am as unbiased as anyone else can be on this war, but he is a damn idiot if he wishes for us to believe The Russian army has only lost 6000 Soldiers and Ukrainian army is devastated. They just mobiiized immense combat power last week that moved the battle lines for the first time to the East.

    Yep it its disrespectful. AND the way politicians have been treating people with this clown show and bankrupting future generations is MORE than disrespectful. It's downright CRIMINAL. People get what they deserve. Even more "People get the Government they deserve." All Alex has done is say, I'm done with trying to follow their rules and I will mock them with abandon. I personally do not do this. But I completely understand others who have reached that point. Screw the establishment that wishes to cry "poor me". Ever heard of the term the Tom Joad test? You sound alot like that. Blaming the victim over the abuser. Let me break down who the Abuser is in this situation. It ain't the guy with the cell phone camera. Politicians bank on you playing by the rules.

    He calls everyone here who recognizes major flaws with Trump guilty of TDS. He has no clue. I talk to a guy everyday on social media who thinks Trump is worse than Biden or any President ever and who thinks he is the most corrupt politician who ever existed. That's TDS. Some of us just know this douchebag may be an "outsider" but that doesn't mean he represents liberty principles one Iota. I have no idea why Swordy is here. Believe someone was outing him before she got the boot for getting too irate.

    Hedges is a Progressive I can get behind. He completely understands the problems. And Kiriakou is from the same ilk as Ray McGovern and Phillip Giraldi and other Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity. We need more of this crossing lines and left/right paradigms.
