      Doesn’t he have cancer or was that just wishful thinking?

        He likely does or did, but the waters are too muddy to have certainty.

          Well, only for us. I’m sure the intelligence community knows.

        He had some weird medical issue that some people guess is cancer. But it just as easily could have been overly cautious covid protections for all the info that gets made public

        Maybe he’ll become as paranoid as Stalin and kill all his doctors. Once can hope. (Sucks for the doctors of course.)

    That would be a big mistake by Putin. Could be his last. And it will take more than 8 years to even think about it. Ukraine has deflated the Russian military. It will take more than 10 years for them to rearm

        Then? He’s geriatric now.

        Ah, the miracles of plastic surgery and not moving your expression much.

      They need those 5-8 years for the kids to get big enough to hold the weapons.

    So in Russian terms, that’s like 40-60 years right? We’re two years into a couple week special operation, so I doubt that they’ll be anywhere close to being able to take on an entire military alliance by 2030 when they can barely handle a single former client state.

    This is the best summary I could come up with:


    An increasingly belligerent Russian President Vladimir Putin could attack the NATO military alliance in less than a decade, Germany’s Defense Minister Boris Pistorius warned.

    Following the Kremlin’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine, Russia has upped its aggressive rhetoric against some of its neighbors — including the Baltic countries and Poland, which are all members of NATO, and Moldova — prompting top European defense officials to warn of the risk of a major conflict.

    Earlier this month, Sweden’s commander-in-chief General Micael Bydén similarly called on Swedes to “prepare themselves mentally” for war.

    In his interview with Der Tagesspiegel, Pistorius said the Swedish warnings were “understandable from a Scandinavian perspective,” adding that Sweden faced “an even more serious situation,” given its proximity to Russia.

    Lithuania’s Foreign Minister Gabrielius Landsbergis, an outspoken Putin critic who has been one of the loudest voices in support of Ukraine in the EU, on Thursday called on Europe to speed up preparations for more Russian aggression.

    “There’s a chance that Russia might not be contained in Ukraine,” Landsbergis told French newswire AFP at the World Economic Forum in Davos.

      If nuclear powers went to war they would, together, hand in hand, wipe the floor with the human race. We’re talking about the potential for 9000 nukes to get launched in this hypothetical war.
