I see reports of Putin possibly having bowel cancer, may be the reason he invaded the Ukraine at this time.

There seems to be more and a little urgency in his actions, and the nuclear threats, that may driven by his personal health issues.

Despots are all about legacy.
Parkinson’s has been mentioned, too.
I watched a news item from OS on Putin where they were discussing the cancer, debenture, parkinsons, scenarios based on 'evidence' from interviews and russian news items, they showed him gripping the table with one hand and his foot tapping while talking with another world leader recently and how this was being used as evidence, they went back 10 years and found footage of him doing exactly the same thing, only difference was the other hand was gripping the table with same foot tapping.
Nothing would make me happier than him not waking up tomorrow (not even clive palmer), I'm not sure anyone knows what goes on with him and his health, he is so closely guarded by his devoted (maybe money inspired) followers I'm not sure anything accurate escapes the Kremlin, one can only hope he does actually have it and dies a horrible death.

A lot of money, let's hope that arsehole Putin gets a rocket up his arse and we never here from him again. Although, if he does have cancer, I hope it subjects him to immeasurable pain and suffering. 🤞

So, Finland has announced its decision to join NATO as quickly as possible, Sweden is expected to follow suit shortly.

Is Putin feeling cornered? Will he lash out with nukes? As Captain Miller said in Saving Private Ryan; “Things have taken a turn for the surreal”.

Moscow has, of course, warned of consequences. Kremlin spokesman, Dmitry Peskov, has stressed that NATO's eastward expansion would not bring stability to Europe. And last month former Russian President Dmitry Medvedev warned that Moscow would fortify its presence in the Baltic region if Finland and Sweden joined NATO.

But there is the other side of the coin given what we see on the idiot box daily, the lady below may be right.

Elisabeth Braw, Resident Fellow at the American Enterprise Institute, says that a Russian invasion of Finland or Sweden is highly unlikely.

"Nobody would seriously argue that Russia is likely to invade Sweden or Finland if they apply for NATO membership because Russia clearly doesn't have the resources. At the moment it's not only tied down in Ukraine, but is putting on a really poor show in Ukraine. So now would not be the time for Russia to retaliate militarily against Sweden and or Finland," she said.

And what will NATO get out of it?

Quote; Harry Nedelcu, NATO expert and director of policy at Rasmussen Global, an international political consultancy.

"The first message of these nations joining NATO is political and targeted towards Russia. Secondly, for NATO it's all about the genuine capabilities that Finland and Sweden are bringing to the table. While everybody else in Europe has been sort of winding down their military capabilities after the Cold War, Finland and Sweden have been building their military capabilities, that can bring quite a bit to the alliance,"
End

Sounds like a smart move on Nato it would seem

But it’s all in the hands of the closest thing to a deranged hitler we have had since, well, hitler. And who knows if a madman might just say fcuk it, and hit the big reset button.

(ok, and stalin for the anally impaired, and the likes of pol pot, idi, mugabe et al were just amateur sideshows).

Interesting times. :unsure:

The sooner a bullet goes through Putins forehead the better off the world will be, sorry for saying that openly but it is the truth, maybe Russia will wake up to reality of its situation then, nothing seems to be getting through to the masses at the moment. I'm not sure there is a worse example of ex KGB morons there to take his place.

Just heard from a friend of mine in a country on the border that the rumour is Putin has blood cancer, that would be nice.

I watched some of this. It was disturbing. More so their views on women.


I can see "some" parallel's here in our Australian politics. It is a slippery slope. Matt Kean from the NSW LNP summed it up pretty well.

"Last week, New South Wales Treasurer and moderate faction powerbroker Matt Kean weighed in -

We've seen the impact of what happens when centre-right parties lose moderate voices," he said at a press conference while standing next to Mr Sharma.

"Look at the Republican Party [in the US] … [it's] now become the party of Trump, the party of Putin sympathisers and anti-vaxxers"

Having lived and worked in the 'merican south none of it surprises me.



Some of the heavily armed rednecks I worked with were certifiable loony nazis.

This is just horrendous, when will they wake up? These people live and walk among us, even here, but through management not in the same percentage as the US. Like DB I've worked across the US, I have many good friends who would be just as shocked as we are but you just know there are others who follow and repeat such actions. As I mentioned in a previous post there have been 198 mass shootings so far this year in the US.

Putin dies and goes to hell, but after a while, he is given a day off for good behavior.

So he goes to Moscow, enters a bar, orders a drink, and asks the bartender:

-Is Crimea ours?

-Yes, it is.

-And the Donbas?

-Also ours.

-And Kyiv?

-We got that too.

Satisfied, Putin drinks, and asks:

-Thanks, how much do I owe you?

-5 euros.
