What I don't see much of?
Reports of huge numbers of casualties.
There are some obviously but not what one would expect from one of the largest military powers in the world bringing a neighbor to her knees. Russia has always been known for lots of raw firepower, so if the intent was to destroy Ukraine and kill lots of people that would seem pretty easy. Instead it seems that they are kind of taking their time, almost like the intent is to force Ukraine to give in to Russian demands instead of wiping them out.
There was a good post on WRSA about this, Cadre Sends, describing this is more akin to a big raid:
Ukraine looks like a raid. Really big one, but still a raid. Raids may have political and strategic implications. Think a tad bigger than Ranger School.
Political and strategic objectives laid out.Stated non-occupation, which at least implies a planned withdrawal (‘Planned withdrawal’ defining a raid.)
RTWT, pretty interesting and not a long article.
The whole story about Ukraine-Russia is more complex than we are being told and few, if any, people know what is really going on over there but what is becoming clear is that while the Russians are the aggressors in the sense of firing the first shot, and that doesn't mean you started the war, they are not looking to destroy, conquer or occupy Ukraine for the long term.
That is not to excuse the Russian invasion, just more food for thought. Whatever you think, just be certain to take nothing you hear at face value from our media.
