I really don't see this ending peacefully for the world outside of Ukraine.
Other than Putin being assassinated by a Russian businessman tired of sanctions, it does seem like the conflict will only escalate

But as long as China doesn’t get fully on board, Russia can’t really go at the west. And I think China would rather have a weakened and subservient Russia to a triumphant one. But who knows, like I said, none of this shit makes sense. Russia should’ve just moved the Black Sea fleet to Sochi and let Ukraine do what it wanted to do, be a borderline failed state moving at a glacial pace towards democracy and EU standards

Yeah I never thought about it but Sochi has to also be a warm water port too, right? It's nearby.

That's what this conflict is over in my opinion. Control of the Black Sea.

I mean, sure the potential spread of NATO and the West's influence over Ukraine is a big part, but losing access to the Black Sea would probably cripple Russia.

I wonder if could go to war with china, and still do trade with them.

That's how f'n insane this world we have built is right now. It wouldn't surprise me.

Russia will win by June.

I have a history of good predictions.

I’m not sure we’d make it to China before the Japanese buried them

Everyone shrugs off Japan but they crushed every empire they faced until Chester Nimitz (Texas) showed up

There won't be a victory. There will be an uneasy truce with Russia controlling some parts of Ukraine and rebel/terrorist attacks happening on the regular. It is going to be ugly for a very long time.
