Putin’s Pyrrhic Victory

Russia may be getting whacked hard in Ukraine, but Putin has the Western world exactly where he wants it.

Am I set to receive a swarm of comments insisting that I’m either a Putin or NATO stooge? Most likely! Information war is like that.

But remember: war is not sport.

Which side you root for is irrelevant. It’s the people who bleed that determine the outcome, and what the fighters across Ukraine are trying to tell the rest of the world is that they still need a lot of help.
