One wonders whether one would be able to summon the bravery being shown by so many Ukrainians. I wonder.

The thinking among some U.S. and European officials is that Mr. Putin might stop the war if enough Russians protest in the streets and enough tycoons turn on him. Other U.S. officials emphasize the goals of punishment and future deterrence, saying that the carcass of the Russian economy will serve as a visible consequence of Mr. Putin’s actions and a warning for other aggressors.
That has been tried before (after WW I), and it had some unintended consequences. Expect Big Nationalism.
The French finance minister, Bruno Le Maire, has used some of the harshest language yet to articulate the mission, telling a radio program on Tuesday that Western nations were “waging an all-out economic and financial war on Russia” to “cause the collapse of the Russian economy.” He later said he regretted his words.

A spokesman for Prime Minister Boris Johnson of Britain said on Monday that the sanctions were “intended to bring down the Putin regime.” Mr. Johnson’s office quickly corrected the statement, saying that it did not reflect his government’s view and that the goal of the measures was to stop Russia’s assault on Ukraine.

Glenn Greenwald@ggreenwald If you want to say that someone is a "pro-Putin" Russia apologist for believing NATO expansion to Russia's borders has been genuinely threatening to most Russians, then you have to say Biden chose a traitor to run the CIA. Here's William Burns' warning to the Bush WH in 2008:

President Obama, in 2016, on Russia, Ukraine and the US. He was being pressed by the neoconservative editor of @TheAtlantic, @JeffreyGoldberg, on why he refused to "stand up to Putin" by arming Ukraine. Here's what Obama said. Well worth reading. This was after Crimea annexation:

A couple of days ago, Matt Levine reported no one wanted Russian assets. That’s changed. Bottom feeders are hoovering them up….although perhaps not yet enough to offset the selling pressure. From Bloomberg:

As the U.S. and allies tighten sanctions on Russia and choke off investor demand for its assets, parts of Wall Street are jumping on the buying opportunity that it’s creating.

Goldman Sachs Group Inc. and JPMorgan Chase & Co. have been purchasing beaten-down company bonds tied to Russia in recent days, as hedge funds that specialize in buying cheap credit look to load up on the assets, according to people with knowledge of the private transactions.

Bloomberg piously notes that trading Russian assets isn’t banned.

Blackrock is also increasing some Russian holdings. From Sharecast:

Private equity giant Blackrock has taken a punt on beleaguered Russian gold miner Polymetal, doubling its stake to just over 10% even as the stock takes a battering from sanctions imposed against Moscow.

Note here Blackrock is buying this stake when the giant Norwegian sovereign wealth fund is selling.

From someone in Belaya (south of Kyiv)...apparently, there have been a few attempts to ambush Zelensky today.  I hope he has a plan...because most of Vlad's include him right now.

Edit:  when I say someone.... a friend's cousin via a phone call within the past hour.

if anyone had any question that putin was remotely trustworthy or had any concern for innocent human life
the last week of his "special military operation" should remove all doubt
the level of evil he has reached is stunning

after getting a good look at this despot the deliberate killing, crushing and destroying

i'm seeing normally some pretty smart folks that have been solidly anti-war rethinking that position

putin is more than willing to sacrifice innocent ukainians and even his own innocent fellow russians to keep his dictatorship

i wouldn't be surprised if someone close to him eventually puts a stop to his madness

he's clearly asking for it

The NYT showed pictures of barricades and reinforcements of the nuclear site days ago as the Russians were moving closer. A likely military target.

Some of their reactors went offline before the Russians got there. Safety protocols too, I guess.

we know he currently has command over a serious nuclear arsenal and should believe him when he threatens us with it

it's hard to watch this kind of evil and not be moved to tears, frustration and eventually retribution
i've banned hate from my personal operating system, but watching this psychopathic dictator purposely extinguish innocent lives is trying
