The former USSR is going insane

The Russian invasion of Ukraine opened the door, and we can all see how that is going. Armenia and Azerbaijan have been staring each other down for some time, and it's flaring up again. Kazakhstan has been dealing with internal strife, but is in a verbal conflict with Russia, refusing to support Russia's demands, supplying the West with fuel (through Azerbaijan) whiie bypassing Russia, and with China subtly warning Russia to stay away. Now, Kyrgystan and Tajikistan have opened fire on one another. I have a feeling Georgia is about to erupt, also. About the only ex-Soviet countries not fighting each other are the ones aligned with the West, who all see Russia as the common enemy. Russia has been reduced to asking Iran and North Korea for ammunition and weapons, as no one else will do it, and all their allies are fighting amongst themselves.

Xi and Putin met this week, with Xi not really giving Putin much verbal support, calling for "international stability and order" and treating Russia as a vassal state, with Putin acting very much like the weakest link. That had to be humiliating for Putin, but not much he can do about it.

Putin is such an idiot. All this chaos is going to spill over into Russia itself, which is having problems with oligarchs and high level officials falling out of windows and off boats, and such. Also, lots of internal attacks - seems like there have been a lot of careless smokers in Russia since the war broke out - as well as reported attacks on Putin himself. Also, Navalny has apparently disappeared from his prison, his lawyers went to see him a few days ago, and they were told "no such prisoner resides here". I expect to hear that he has been killed. EDIT: This is old info, he is being held in solitary most of the time and no on is permitted to see him or give or receive anything from him ... not that it is working: https://twitter.com/navalny/status/1570357379857793025

Perhaps we are seeing the Russian "Federation" starting to break up, and in any case, seems likely to be heading towards civil war, as other ethnic groups decide they want to be independent. The citizens of Moscow seem quite oblivious to what is going on, due to the complete contro of the media by the State, but at some point, that will break ... as suddenly as the offensive in Kharkiv.

Crazy times, but things are coming to a head. As bad as we have it here with Trump and his fellow Putin-ites (and have no doubt about it, Trump, Q, Fox, Brexit and much more are part of the larger Putin plan to destabilize and destroy the West), at least it's not as bad as it could be. With luck, maybe we can take Trump, Putin and the whole pile of garbage out to the toxic waste dump at once, and find a way to move forward. I'm hoping (with slim chance of it coming true) that whoever takes over from Putin decides to come clean on all of it, with the hopes of getting to rejoin the world community.

Anyone else get the feeling ...

we are about to see some arrests?
