What is up with the media? They keep saying, "we underestimated Putin"...

"Putin is enigmatic". Are they really that obtuse? Do they think the West's intelligence community doesn't understand what Putin's broader goals are? WTF? Might as well join the Pig and laud Putin as a stable genius.

6. Biden, a week ago: Russia will attack next week. Everybody, now: How did we miss this?!

US intelligence has been right.

The problem wasn't a lack of intelligence. The problem is that there is no good way to stop a nuclear power determined to conquer and annex its weaker neighbor.
