Putin Already Facing More Resistance Than He Anticipated — Including From His Own People – Opinion

Joe Biden’s reaction to Vladimir Putin’s actions against Ukraine has so far been pathetically weak. He hasn’t thrown down any of the more significant sanctions that might hurt Putin or the people closest to him. He’s still holding back. Biden has just contradicted the entire team. He can’t even seem to get on the same page with them, and he has no grasp on reality when it comes to the sanctions or their effect. He said that no one thought sanctions would prevent Putin’s actions. Yet that was all his team was pitching, that the threat of Biden’s terrifying sanctions would deter Putin.

How’d that work out? Biden is still not willing to pull the trigger on moves that might have an effect, while claiming to Fox’s Peter Doocy that what he has done will be as effective as the “bullets” Russia is using against Ukraine. It’s madness.

The Ukrainians are tough people, and they’re not done in quite yet. Even though they eventually become overwhelmed, Putin will still have to face a hostile population, which has been the death knell for those who invaded Ukraine. That isn’t going to go well for him.

Right now where Putin is facing a lot of resistance  — in addition to the Ukrainians — is in his own country. Russians are not happy that they have been dragged into this by Putin’s land grab. In cities throughout the country they are protesting in their thousands.

Looking like Canada.

Now, we’ll have to see how strong that resistance is, and how much of an impact that might have on Putin. According to some reports, more than 1000 people were already detained. Putin doesn’t allow dissent to stop him. Putin prefers to kill or lock up those opposed. But, if this is as widespread as this appears, it may have more of an effect than Joe Biden’s piddling sanctions.

This is the place where crazy liberals used to be.

Even though Russian protesters are being mistreated, Canadian protestors can still be attacked. They both have the right and privilege to protest. But even now, they’re so invested in the liberal agenda, they can’t see that both have the right to be free of assault from their governments. They don’t understand or care about individual freedoms and rights.

They still don’t get the reason for all this action from Putin is Biden’s weakness and their liberal Democrats. That’s how you have posts like this from folks like Alexander Vindman, who doesn’t understand that he helped get us to this place that has emboldened Putin.
