The attack on Kyiv has begun. 

As I noted on the Refugee page, the convoy has not stalled, it was just a staging post, exactly where it was needed. 

First attack repelled with significant ambushes by the Ukrainians. 

Good video in the Wail.

I am intrigued by Facebook's moral compass. Would it have been ok for Iraqi citizens to call for the deaths of GIs. If it is ok to call for the deaths of Russians is it ok for Russians to post support for their boys to give the Ukrainian forces hell and worse?

Ah the justifications that will be thought up to condemn and defend FB's policies.

I don't want anyone to be killed in this war, although the idea that if someone were to fatally topple Putin it would all end is quite appealing.  Perhaps that's what FB is on about, not automatically deleting 'Death to Putin' posts?

I went on the protest marches against the war in Iraq. I condemn the Russian military bombing of Ukrainian hospitals now as much as I condemned the Russian military bombing hospitals in Syria. Wars waged against innocent civilians are unforgivable.

What’s happening in Ukraine is not a picnic - the only way Ukrainians can defend their country is to kill Russian soldiers. Unfortunately, as long as the Russians keep attacking, Ukrainians have no other option. They could of course surrender and become a Russian puppet state like Belarus (no doubt some cynics in the West would welcome this solution so that their beloved oligarchs can rise like Lazarus from the ‘financial death’ to quickly be ‘back to business as usual’), but this option, at least for now, seems deeply unpopular among Ukrainians. I predict that even if the Ukrainian army/ government decided to lay down their weapons, there would potentially be ongoing fierce resistance from the Ukrainian people (circa 40 million), who, in the main, understandably feel nothing but hatred for their Russian invaders.

This conflict could go on for many years. Should that happen then there will also be no peace in the rest of Europe either.

Hopefully within 10 days...someone in his "inner-circle" will have stabbed Putin in the back of the head. Man has changed and is under the influence of some condition, medication or steroids.

Why do you think he is using those super long tables?  I doubt anyone can get close.

Best chance is that China withdraws there support and encourages him to back down.  Unfortunately they don't seem to keen to criticise Russia and even gave them some support on the allegations that Ukraine has been developing biological weapons (somewhat ironically given the theories on the origin of Covid-19)
