As soon as Putin is done making deals with Xi at the Olympics, he will apparently invade Ukraine. According to US Intel, 50-thosuand civilians could die.
“Russia is close to completing preparations for what appears to be a large-scale invasion of Ukraine that could result in up to 50,000 civilian deaths, decapitate the government in Kyiv within two days, and launch a humanitarian crisis with up to 5 million refugees fleeing”
“What could become the largest military land offensive in Europe since World War II would probably pose broad challenges to the U.S.-led postwar international order of the last 75 years.”…

“If Ginni Thomas is intimately involved—financially or ideologically tied to the litigant—that strikes me as slicing the baloney a little thin.” @JaneMayerNYer takes a look at Justice Thomas’s spouse’s involvements in potential conflicts of interest.
