3 Kremlin generals sacked

Sorry, I couldn’t figure out how to copy this:

3 Kremlin generals sacked; Biden urged to declare Russia a state sponsor of terrorism: Ukraine live updates

The METAR angle?

Wars are expensive.

Huge Russia is going broke trying to subdue tiny Ukraine.

Russia would probably do better to just give up and walk away.

Of course that probably wouldn’t be very good for Putin’s health. :wink:


Of course instituting a boycott on Russian gold exports would do more to hurt Russia economically than some of the alternative showboating. Maybe allowing the trade to continue should be the quid pro quo of them continuing to supply the EU with gas/oil.

Those wondering about the relatively stable price of gold during the recent turmoil only have to look as far as the pinning of the Ruble to the price of gold.
