The Frontrunner for the Dumbest Commentary on Ukraine

We give you U.S. Republican Senator Tommy Tuberville (boldface mine):

Tuberville discussed the escalating tensions between Russia and Ukraine. He claims that a large part of Vladimir Putin’s desire for further annexation of Ukrainian land is due to the amount of farmland in Ukraine.

“He can’t feed his people,” Tuberville said. “It’s a communist country, so he can’t feed his people, so they need more farmland.”

If Alabama voters are this stupid, maybe, like happens in D.C., Congress should have to approve their budgets too.

Aside: Admittedly, the Substack Bois and the Anti-Antis have said stupid shit, but I think this takes the prize.

    Ok, that take is Dumb and Nonsensical… and yet, it still provides a more logical explanation for Putin’s behavior than anything else I’ve read.
    Is Putin really this senseless? If so, why now? If not, why is he doing this?

    Yet before the invasion the reasons why the invasion were prominently on display and discussed in the media. After the invasion it is as if nothing had ever existed.

    If you are really curious, I would recommend Professor J. Mearsheimer, and the talk he gave for Kings Politics at Cambridge University. This talk occurred on Feb. 15. J. Mearsheimer is reasonably well respected, and a former US Officer in the air force. A quick search shows he has broad respect and international recognition and is not just another talking head. Your question is exactly his area of expertise.

    If you want something more low brow, the Slacker seems so far to be rather good at predicting the future.

    Both of these links came to me from the webiste Naked Capitalism, who specialize, like this site, in among other things links. Naked Capitalism is how I found this site by the way.

  3. Russia hasn’t been communist for over a generation.
