It's mind blowing to me the loss of human life that occurs in an instant. Most of those deaths were probably guys in their teens and early 20's, kids really.

Thats what war is always has been..always will be.....huge amount of loss of life, loss & waste of earths resources in making the machines /equipment of war, huge economic losses...let alone the huge death tolls on civilian life, the huge amount of waste in destroying existing buildings & infrastructure....


Look back at any war..how much life was lost?....how much did it take to get the cities rebuilt?.... get the economies rebuilt??.... & all for what??...some stupid egotist who basically shot himself in the foot??...

I've been saying that for ages......thing is it'll only make the war more destructive as all the top people vying for the position & military lot want to go "harder" with the war as Putin's been "pussy-footing" around compared to the standards that most of the military lot have...
The only way to win is to not hold anything back.

No one ever won by rolling into a country and then hanging around fighting the locals.

If you can't completely flatten your enemy you simply can't win.

Hard to say as it depends on who comes in. There are rational voices that would be in favor of a withdrawal in return for a lessening of sanctions

There are a fair amount of professional military that aren't on board with this "special military operation" - just like most in our military said "WTF" when they were told to pull out of Bagram before everyone was evacuated.

In both countries, the military is often overruled by civilian leadership that has no clue.

That said, the Russian military still has a fair share of fanatical Soviets, so it really depends.
