I favor a Russian civil war that results in
the country breaking up into smaller units.
Tis a lesser evil than havingYou favor something that would almost inevitably lead to thousands or possibly tens of thousands of civilian deaths, not to mention likely war crimes against civilians?
It seems that your concern is limited to theThis is why I find it concerning when I see arguments that seem to reduce distant countries to abstractions and geopolitical assets.
Tis a lesser evil than having a country like Russia
It seems that your concern is limited to the
short term. Lives wrongfully lost is bad.
But worse is a vicious predatory aggressive
nuclear power with century long designs
on its neighbors.
Think of how many Ukrainians & Russians
died in the latest "special military operation".
It would be great to avoid more of those.
We all make assumptions....even you.That involves major assumptions, mainly that a replacement to Putin's regime couldn't be less bellicose without the need for a civil war.
I don't claim that civil war is necessary.I don't think a civil war is the only way to avoid more of those.
Agree to disagree aboutAlso, my concern is definitely not limited to the short term considering how long civil wars can last and their decades-long effects.
You speak of what "could" be.Look at the effects of the Syrian civil war and the resultant humanitarian and refugee crisis. A civil war in Russia could have similar effects on a far larger scale, with the additional issue of militant groups' possible acquisition of nukes.
Doing nothing portends costing much more later on.
Are you buying the MAGA argument against
defending Ukraine because of financial burden?
Or Russia's & China's belief that the
west would make such conquest
Pre-WW2 Japan thought so too.
You seem to argue much, but
without taking any position.
Are you a bickerbot?
I do find it strange an experienced Russian mercenary commander would be that reckless enough to enter a plane willy nilly givin the circumstances of recent events.The curious thing is that in the English Wikipedia page, Prigozhin is considered already dead.
It also starts with "he was a Russian oligarch, etc etc"
whereas in the Russian page, the verb is still in present tense. There is not written "byl rossijskij predprinimatel'", that is, the past tense.
It was his own plane, so presumably he believed he had it protected sufficiently - but people can be bribed, and hence probably how a bomb was placed onboard being the likeliest explanation as to the crash. Any Putin investigation of such will probably show otherwise though.I do find it strange an experienced Russian mercenary commander would be that reckless enough to enter a plane willy nilly givin the circumstances of recent events.
People will hate whom they hate, & wish what they wish.There are embittered cynics around the world who wish the same on your country.
Russia will never be dismantled.People will hate whom they hate, & wish what they wish.
I see a dismantled Russia as better for the world.
Those who want the same for USA might be happier
seeing Russian conquer Ukraine & others. Many fondly
remember the heady days of a united USSR.
Different preferences, eh.
I wager that the banking systemRussia will never be dismantled.
Because it's Europe that is changing.
There is a storm blowing furiously in Europe and is against the international banking system.
And I am afraid, you will have to kill us all this time, to prevent it.
Yevgeny Prigozhin, the former head of the private military company Wagner Group, was confirmed dead using genetic testing, Russian investigators said Sunday.www.upi.com
The Russians have no trouble at all getting rid of trouble makers and competitors for the leadership, compared to the USA.
Who go through interminable court cases and social media publicity.
