Excerpts from H.C.R. post:

"The ability of European countries to come together to stand against Russia, as well as the global cooperation in cutting Russia off from the world economy, has offered an illustration of how countries can enforce a rules-based world and showed the strength of democracies."

"At the very least, the underperformance of the Russian military will enable opponents to exploit the holes it now sees (today, for example, it appeared that Russia’s boasted encrypted battlefield communications system doesn’t actually work)."

"More, though, the missteps of the Russian army have significantly weakened the country. Estonia’s chief of defense, Lieutenant General Martin Herem, told reporters “Today what I have seen is that even this huge army or military is not so huge.” Brigadier General Rauno Sirk, commander of Estonia’s air force, said of the Russian air force: “If you look at what’s on the other side, you’ll see that there isn’t really an opponent anymore.”

"Andrei Kozyrev, Russia’s foreign minister from 1990 to 1996, tweeted: “The Kremlin spent the last 20 years trying to modernize its military. Much of that budget was stolen and spent on mega-yachts in Cyprus. But as a military advisor you cannot report that to the President. So they reported lies to him instead. Potemkin military[.]”

"If Putin’s authoritarian government has turned out to be weaker militarily than was expected, democracies have proved stronger."

    Amen, preach it, Heather.

    A lesson in this, for those who doubted, is that representative governments produce strength. Authoritarianism is corrupted, and corrupts.

    I'll add that it's refreshing to read Heather not blaming GOPs for this problem or that, even though Dems run everything in DC.

    It seems that Vladimir can bring Americans together, even Heather and the GOPs.
