The devastation and unnecessary loss of life due to one man's greed is tragic.

Reminds me of Churchill's comment on Hitler: "For God's sake, don't kill him! His stupidity is England's greatest asset!"

Putin is not the first tyrant who fancied himself a peerless military leader.

The EXACT same thing Hitler was doing at the end of the war, making bad tactical decisions on battlefield level, trying to move forces and micro-manage his troops, it was a blunder for Hitler and its a blunder for Putin

Vladimir Rezun's "Inside the Soviet Army" shows that little has changed since those days in Russia. Soviet officers also ruled by fear and kept an emotional distance from their troops.

This isn't new however. Western, more specifically the US military utilizes a decentralized command structure which gives field-level command elements the ability to make decisions, whereas Russia (and old Soviets) use a more centralized command structure. This is evident in how this war has gone for them. They're very slow to adapt to what's happening on the battlefield and keep running into the same ambushes and getting air assets shot down in their same areas of operation.

This is like the situation in the movie "A few good men". The soldiers carried out an act that was commanded by their leader and were prosecuted, along with their commander.

These young soldiers are in their physical prime, but mentally. They are not ready for these type of atrocities. Whoever commanded him to do this inhumane act, needs to pay for this, dearly.

I sort of remember a WWII leader doing this and his failed ambition ended with his suicide in a bunker. History repeats! May Putin follow his lead soon.

Who would have thought that the much feared Russian military could be so inept?

This is one General who talks, so that really every one can understand what he is saying. Besides that his story was clear and to the point. Must have been a GREAT man of a commander for his troops.

Aa Really brought home how bad the situation is when the guy at the end expressed gratitude for simply having enough space to stand up inside his shared apartment.

In our military by contrast, our members are trained to be thinkers as well as fighters. What Russian generals are tasked with; the US military gives those tasks to more junior officers.

I have never heard of Pres. Zelenskyy running military matters. I assume he leaves that to the experts because he trusts them. That is the mark of a good leader.
