The U.S. Defense Department believes that as many as 80,000 Russian troops have been killed or wounded since the Kremlin's full-scale invasion of Ukraine less than six months ago, a top Pentagon official told reporters today.

I think the DOD is majorly under counting.

It's not undercounting, and those are casualties so it's somewhere between 30k to 50k dead, in exchange for somewhere in the range of 40k to 160k Ukrainian military casualties.

It's very manly to wipe out that many men in their primes and it bodes well for their economic future to lose that much economic productivity. Just ask the cl0wns.

China on the other hand could shed a few million males in their primes since it has a surplus... not miss a beat. There are enough military-ready young males to replace our entire population.

Our kids don't join because they can't fit in the uniforms.

Doesn't matter how many deaths and caualties Putin admits unless the Russian people get to hear him do it.

It's the speed with which Putin has racked up these casualties which I find so impressive. It took Trump about two years to kill off 100,000 Americans with Covid.

Your numbers are way off.

Probably. The 80,000 includes all Russians injured or killed. The 100,000 are just the people killed by Trump's incompetent and criminally negligent response to the epidemic.

No, I mean way more than 100k were killed by Fat Donnie's incompetence.

What is a more accurate number? I am genuinely interested. And what is the source?

"They concluded that 40% of the US's roughly 450,000 coronavirus deaths as of February 4 could have been avoided if the country had handled the pandemic similarly to its wealthy peers. That's 180,000 lives."

Biden should cut out the MIC and Ukraine middlemen. Just offer a $1 million bounty per Russian male (20-50). The murder mayhem it would cause would negate most of the payouts.

It sucks Biden and Dems are OK with this war. Those deaths on their hands.

"The 100,000 are just the people killed by Trump's incompetent and criminally negligent response to the epidemic."

And the hundreds of thousands killed after he was out of office are the due to Biden's incompetent and criminally negligent response to the epidemic. You know, the epidemic he said he'd have contained right after office?

I don't believe any of the statements above. Just pointing out the ever-growing list of hypocritical statements made by Libs who clearly just don't care anymore. Now, if Biden had said he would do his best and that it's a difficult situation to change, that sarcasm above wouldn't hold any weight. But he didn't. He and other prominent Dems said they could fix it immediately. And they didn't. And there is no measure or metric that can prove it. So, yeah, it's just hypocrisy at that point. Try to prove me wrong. It won't go well for you. In fact, if the last 10ish years are an indicator of Liberal debating, all it would do is have you resort to name calling and demonizing instead of making a clear case with evidence.

COVID became the Republican disease after Biden was elected, by Republican choice, as a mark of Republican tribalism.

You bloody-minded, primitive ----- are still killing yourselves off.
