I didn’t realise that you can liberate a place by just bombing the hell out of it

Their strategy certainly doesn't involve logistics.

Remember how Putin insisted, before the war, that he had no plans to invade Ukraine? Maybe he wasn’t lying after all: maybe he really didn’t have any plan. Just point his troops at the border, tell them “go on, then” and hope for the best.

I recognize this strategy! Attack a target you perceive to be much weaker with overwhelming force and they will crumble like a deck of cards. If you are wrong, your force is now so spread out all of your attacks are weak. Therefore siege warfare, "the lowest form of warfare" -Sun Tzu

Putin: “I used to live here until 1989. I’m back to reclaim it. Please step aside.”
Mariupol: “Get real, mate. We’ve been paying the mortgage on this place for 30 years. Do one.”

I am sure that military analysts will write books on this operation and analyze combat tactics in order to learn. This is not a visit from one side, guys. The card is incorrect.

I don’t understand why we’re allowing this to happen?

Some very strong echoes of the 1939 Winter War here. Overconfident Russian forces launch a war of aggression against neutral Finland, a former Russian territory, expecting to overrun the country in a matter of days. Expecting to be greeting as liberators they instead meet fierce resistance and suffer huge casualties launching frontal attacks. Huge road-bound Russian armored forces literally run out of gas and get ambushed and destroyed. Foreign sentiment is overwhelmingly with the Finns and a flood of foreign volunteers and military aid flows into Finland. The Russians regroup and initiate a war of attrition, using overwhelming firepower with artillery in an attempt to pound the Finns into submission. Everything we are seeing today we have seen before.

I like the part where he feels the need to draw around Kharkiv when it's written in four inch tall letters. Definitely couldn't have seen it without that circle.

Imagine literally being able to target a country from 3 of the 4 directions and still being too incompetent to beat the inhabitants.. This has got to be pretty embarrassing for spiteful Putin and I bet it's quite the eye-opener to countries that thought Russia had a considerable military force. All they have is modern weapons.

One part I agree with you on, its a war of attrition.

Pootin: We're scared of NATO so we're going to destroy Ukraine!
Fails to realize Ukraine borders NATO.
Brilliant!
