I’m thinking part of his calculation is to pull the Biden administration into an unsolvable diplomatic mess which will increase the chances for Trump 2024. Republicans everywhere will just use it as another opportunity to criticize him instead of rallying in support of Western Europe like they would have in the good old days.

Then US is gone from NATO. Probably South Korea and other places too unless they successfully pull off a campaign of sustained, blatant ass kissing.

I’ve been thinking/wondering the same thing. When’s the last time she was physically seen, November?

Granted, with omicron so transmissible, and her age at 95, caution is certainly warranted.

Oh yeah, but a lot of the statements coming out of the Palace have a very "The Queen is going to a farm where she can run and play with other Queens" kind of vibe to them.

Other than it being terrible for her, and her family (except the pedo son I guess), I am somewhere on the Dont care about Kings and Queens scale.

In what I'm sure is unrelated news, Combat Mission: Black Sea is currently on sale at Battlefront.com.

EDIT: It was over the weekend! C'mon Battlefront! The opportunity is RIGHT THERE.

They're just trying to find Hunter Biden's laptop, that's all.
