Thank you for your reply.
Media is definitely a powerful tool to distort reality. I read media from both sides and of course the presented information is completely different. I don't know who is right, who is wrong, maybe the truth is somewhere in between, but I do know that war is never the answer. I talk to my friends and family in Ukraine on a daily basis. I hear their stories and what they go through. It is real, it is war, it is not a "special operation". Violence is not the way.
Thanks again for the opportunity to ask questions.

Russia may win a conventional battle for the eastern part of Ukraine but will lose the inevitable counterinsurgency that will oil-spot over time from west to east.

With enough overt and clandestine western aid flowing in to the country, the west could turn the tide and defeat Russia [in Ukraine, I would suggest a war in Russia would destroy the west.

I have no real feel or idea what is going on there because the media cannot be trusted and the Russians are also master disinformation, misdirection and black propaganda.

Hello, everyone!
Hopefully unlike on ships, women are welcome here. Thank you in advance:).
This is Kat, Bo's girl.
As some of you may know, current situation with Ukraine-Russia hits pretty close to home literally. Poor Bo has to listen to my endless questions and concerns, answers to which not many know.
He encouraged me to post my questions here.
I appreciate opinions of those who are definitely more knowledgeable than me in the warfare and tactics.
I wanted to know, in your opinion, how the conflict will end? Does Ukraine stand any chance to win it and if so, what needs to happen for it to win this war? I don't know if "win" is an appropriate term to use here, honestly. With all the devastation, destruction and trauma victory doesn't seem to be he right word even if it the conflict ends in Ukraine's favor.
Thank you for your time and input!

It's a family thing . The last and only time I snitched was on my older brother Ron . He took his dirt nap last year Gawd bless him . He had started a nice campfire in the woods behind our home . It got a bit out of control and the fire department had to come put it out . I told my dad and he beat my ass for snitching on my brother . I never did it again . Big Ed did not tolerate snitching . It's a family tradition .

I think they green lit the sequel and I thought it was a great remake.

I saw the new Dune.  It was great.  Although, it's only part 1, and they haven't even green lit part 2 yet.  So, in that sense, you'll probably be left wanting.

I was pissed they left out Fede, but he's supposedly going to be in part 2 if they make it.

It'll be good for your soul to get on here with the field team . Things are getting rough . I been calling,emailing,writing all my worthless reps in congress and I think they are getting worried . Went into the nearest village for some smokes and gas yesterday . Stopped at a filling station and in less than two minutes three orcs and a EMT squad pull in . Orcs staring at me hard and they were all unstrapped . Been practicing my quick draw and I think I could have busted them all but the woman was with me and I didn't want to put her through that shit . Payed my bill and got back in the old jacked up Ford and went down the street to Krogers . The woman went in and I pretended to study my phone while observing the situation . She was in the store 11 minutes and I saw 6 cars that were marked . How many unmarked only God and Caesar know . Made the 7 mile trip home and seen nothing else . After parking a very noisy copter went over several times . Strangely the chopper had a target like rear rotor on it . The center was very clearly marked . Situational awareness and plenty of reloads for future excursions . The Buckeye has always been an orc infested police state since I can remember and I'm 70 years old. Back in my youth I grew up spending summers at the FOP camp on Lake Erie with Mom and Dad and the family . The cops were not perfect but they were one hell of a lot better material then . These clowns today are those who can't or don't want to compete in the workplace . Much easier to shoot a couple dogs or kids and get your paycheck . Welcome back ! Don't work yourself to death though . I almost did that before I retired but never the less was quite successful . And watch the news . If they get me cornered I guarantee you will hear about it .
