You explained nothing, Same words as we hear on the main stream corrupted media.
17:50 but Ukraine refused to trade a single inch of land for peacd
11:11 what about stepan bandera?
10:13 it is not an obvius step. They are depriving an human settlemen of water
I love your work here on the internet. On this episd. the fact that u went into bargaining examples, and also, game theory. Your lectures are well thought out, and you apply just the right amount of detail, so that a laymen such as myself can grasp what is really going on over their. When I was in college, my roommate was working on his masters in mathematics. You remind me of him. keep puttin out more great vids. Oh, Im going to pick up you book. God Bless T.E.
I think the one takeaway I have from all of your great videos is that you don't put enough stock in the "Putin wants to conquer more land and is willing to spend whatever it takes to do so" market.
Recall "The Scorpion and the Frog".
Putin is a jealous of UKRAINE. He wants to rule UKRAINE. The DAM RUSSIANS have wanted UKRAINE FOR A VERY, VERY, VERY LONG, LONG TIME……….THEY THE RUSSIANS HAVE NEVER NEVER BEEN SATISFIED OF WHAT THE HAVE , OTHER COUNTRIES SEEM MORE APPEALING. PUTIN AND THE DAM RUSSIAN GOVERNMENT WANT TO RULE AS MANY COU TRIES AS THEY CAN…… THIS MUST NEVER HAPPEN…..THE RUSSIAN GOVERNMENT IS CROOKED AND CRULE. NO COUNTRY SHOULD BE UNDER THE RUSSIAN THUM. THE IS ALWAYS POVERTY , HUNGER, AND DEATH INVOLVED WITH THE RUSSIANS. GOD HELP US ALL
Very good analysis, but who will win? Russia has not brought out the big stick yet. Not one Ukrainian or foreign fighter left standing
NATO expansion since WW2 is just one of the reasons for this war starting, innocent russian speaking people being slaughtered in Ukraine by Azov Nazis is another
Yikes. That bargaining war chapter is such bullshit. The fact you cannot trust Putin just throws bargaining out the window. That chapter could of been 1 sentence long.
Of course that Russia had a first move advantage. Most of their territorial gains were made in the first weeks. And now they have had time to consolidate so the counteroffensive is more difficult.
Putin Will not achieve much because the West is interested to weaken Russia hence eliminate opposition of a super power against USA. Anyone who thinks about killing the USA dollar is always eliminated ie musician like Peter Tosh
The main Cause is the NATO expansion ( Biden Big blunder )
Is this video,
is one of arm?
of the fraud leader of Washington?
does this man have any thoughts on the latest situation?
12:24 You forget the main resaon.
Wich Putin spoke about in his speech before the Attack and year prior. The unwillingness of the US and the West to give Security Garanties about Stationing ICBMs in Ukrain.
Also the Bio Weapon Labs the US helped build in Ukrain.
WMD are a reason for Invasion that is valid.
Fake News from the Start
Its admited by US officials that they were masterminding and paying the Maidan Protests.
The even admited why they did it. To provoke Russia.
Does your analysis include the US coup and replacement of the democratically elected president of Ukraine with a pro-West puppet back in 2014 and how the Eastern regions of Ukraine then decided they would rather live under Russian rule vs a US/EU puppet? Or how this invasion was triggered by the attempted expansion of NATO into Ukraine? Those are important facts not to be left out.
Just 4 minutes in and the cracks are already showing. Mentioning MSM reports versions of events – Maidan, separatist regions etc. – already hints at the superficiality of the "analysis" considering some comments here.
This is THE POISONOUS view THE SYNAGOGUE OF SATAN has concocted for ALL THOSE HUMAN MINDS unwilling to look deeper and thinking for themselves, because of their fear having to look at themselves into THE MIRROR and admit to complacency and complicity in THE GREATEST LIE ever told.
THIS SUPERFICIALITY ONLY LEADS DEEPER INTO HELL THAN TO THE TRUTH – LIGHT!
DESPERATION PROPERGANDA FROM WEF NEWS
I love your videos but I feel like you left one of, if not the most, important details that started this entire war. That would be the USA funding, arming and training another terrorist organization to create a coupe and overthrowing the current government. I know people hate to see it but its well documented with factual evidence and not a "theory" I get why nobody talks about it but its the truth.
You could not be more wrong. This conflict goes back to the gas pipelines through Ukraine. Where Ukraine kept violating contractual agreements
Is it just me or does he sound a bit like asianometry?
Putin has the Hilter Syndrome. Too long in Power without any checks and balance. Pity for all the neighbours.
Russia is a terrorist nation
The war is between Russia UK USA
Ukraine Germany France Poland
Sweden etc etc Nato and those who
Want to join Nato Americans pawns
On the chess board of war.
Putin would happily accept an agreement with Ukraine, because he gained everything and lost nothing he wasn't already willing to lose at the expense of everyone on either side.
Giving him what he wants is just as idiotic as what Chamberlain did in the late 30s, giving Hitler what he wanted for a useless agreement.
Pandering to, and giving in to Putin for the sake of peace will only give him the breathing space he needs to put himself in a better position to try again, and show other Autocratic leaders that they can just take what they want, whenever they feel they want it.
Unfortunately, this means we need to stand up to him, even at the cost of lives and resources.
Yes, I don't think Putin is necessarily irrational for starting the war. But he was (and probably continues to be) extremely misinformed because he fostered an environment where he gets told what he wants to get told. Garbage in, garbage out. That's why he appears irrational at times, because he exists in a bubble very different from the rest of us.
Indeed I do see one other cause. You forgot ideology.
Putin and the predominance of Russian people want their power back- much like WW2 Germany under Hitler. Russians seem to look back at the old union with fawning eyes, thinking that it was better to be feared than loved- and Russia was feared. They seem to forget, under the gentle agreement that the Russian's should leave politics to Putin, that the most fearful people of the Soviet Union were its citizens!
But as the war drags on, Russians will learn that one comes with the other. The more powerful the government, the less freedoms of its people- this will be proven again as Russia cracks down.
SO there is this ideological desire on the part of those much over 30 to "return to the time when Russia was powerful." Whereas youth chafes already at the control of Putin.
Right now, there is little pain felt by the over 30 crowd in Russia. But with the numbers of dead and wounded involved, even Putin can't hide it forever. In Afghanistan, there were no cell phones. But in Ukraine, there certainly are.
It remains to be seen when this will all end. I am sure that the population of Siberia grows daily- just as it did under the Soviet Union.
The one way it won't end is by an external power invading Russia.
I think the best way it will end, is if Putin fails to wake up one morning- much like Stalin.
This man IS the Russian Hitler and for him, this is his world view. Russia must regain its former glory- and rule the world. That means Ukraine, Latvia, Poland, etc, etc, etc, MUST join with him and "New Russia" to oppose the "imperialist capitalist."
Turns out that is a very old Russia… The more things change, the more they stay the same.
I love your content and you are doing incredibly well, but you inexplicably mispronounced "von Schlieffen". All English speakers get the "von" slightly wrong, I got no gripe with that, but for some reason you added an L to his name xD "SchlieffLen" @23:00
2023 – russians losing and sending old crap and untrained cannon meat.
Ukrainians are about to counter strike the shit out of those fascists.
Ukraine won't stop until every russian invader is dead, it's pretty obvious by now. Russia losing both tactically and strategically and it doesn't matter if shitty russia offers negotiations to stop war or not, the negotiations would be possible only after russia leaves Ukrainian territories.
No ; Obama and Biden (vice president) funded paramilitaries to assassinate Yanukovych in 2014. And ; having miraculously survived, ; fled to Russia to consider his options. And, after doing so declared he was still Ukraine president ; and, would return. Obama and Biden installed Poroshenko by coup before he could do so. So now ; Ukraine have succeeded in having their pro European president albeit they are now their pro Obama/Biden American president. So as agreed between Poroshenko and his American masters (controllers), he had to agree to wage war o Donbas Russians as a prerequisite to receiving American funding and the resulting installation into the Ukraine presidency. He had agreed with Joe Biden and Obama that he would accept all arms and weapons supplied to the paramilitaries to wage war on Russia via their citizens in the Donbas. They killed nearly 20,000 Russians AND Ukrainians between 2014 (when Poroshenko assumed presidency) and when president Putin sent in his troops to protect the slaughter of his fellow Russians living in the Donbas regions.
"Separatists claim their independence" – BUT WHY ? Maybe you should explain that first and not make it simple as possible . The most important reason that the war began in 2022 was not Donbas only but plans to join NATO by Ukraine , beside that Majdan has been sponsored by U.S Gov. – is it something new to you ?
The assumption Putin is crazy doesn't take in the amount of smoke being blown up his ass. I think the only reason he needs is he's Russian. A Russian mind that was believed to have been lost 40 years ago. Actually not just a Russian mind but he really has lost all rational thoughts.
