    Here is your answer, straight out of the Henry Kissinger book of Real Life is a Shit Sandwich. One wonders how many people did Nehru kill when he was Prime Minister of India, or how many people did Nelson Mandela kill when he was President of South Africa. I know not all of Canada's Prime Ministers have been saints, but what does the roster of killings look like in that country?

    So I assume Carlson has a simple view: Strong Leaders Kill People, Get Over it.

    He did say this, though without naming Putin:
    "it's horrifying what happened to Navalny. The whole thing is barbaric and awful. No decent person would defend it."

    The other Putin fan who is actually running for President seems to have said nothing on the subject.

    Carlson is a worthless hypocrite, cherry-picking his way through the corpses stacked up by his favourite dictators to condemn some while remaining silent on others.

    He has interviewed Viktor Orbán on the grounds he shares the same 'family values' as he and the Republicans claim to share, and the importance of Christianity, and of course, The Nation as the foundations of a decent society. Only it now emerges that Orbán and his Fidesz colleagues are far from decent, and have had their grubby hypocrisy exposed, though we don't yet know if this will force Orbán out of office. He has another boyfriend in the US, Sebastian Gorka, a permanently hysterical bag-carrier for Bannon.

    Can we hope this year sees the tide turn against these nauseating hypocrites who champion the very kind of politics that in other countries would land them in the Gulag?

    Now the poor man is effectively defending Putin on the grounds that he would not have ordered the murder of Navalny when the Munich Security Conference was taking place, indeed anyone who says so is an 'idiot'-

    "People who say Putin killed him are idiots,' Carlson said."
    Tucker Carlson jumps to Putin's defense again after Navalny's death (msn.com)

    Historians now argue it was at the Munich Conference in 2007 that Putin indicated his patience with 'the West' was over and he was planning an expansion of his new Empire, so it actually made more sense to murder Navalny when the Conference was taking place to remind the delegates there he calls the shots in Russia. Whether or not he personally ordered the murder is not relevant, as the system he has created knows how to deal with any opponent of the regime.

    The idiots are those who defend Putin -ask yourself, would they want in the US what the Russians have? Maybe that is a chilling thought.

    Two years on, and the question might not be can Ukraine win, but can Russia be defeated? I doubt the latter, though on BBC Radio 4's World This Weekend (Sunday 25th) it was pointed out that a war economy can survive in the near future but stores long term problems for Russian economy and society. Production of weapons and the upgrading of old stock is giving people jobs, but it is a 'Kalashnikov economy', and the current weakness is on the Ukraine side with war fatigue and the prospect of it losing financial and military assistance from NATO and the US.

    The real anxiety now has shifted to Moldova and the fake Russian Republc of Transnistria, as the Russians there will be seeking the formal integration into Russia, probably in the week ahead-

    "Pro-Russia rebels in a separatist part of Moldova are preparing to ask Vladimir Putin to annex their region amid warnings that an emboldened Kremlin is trying to destabilise Europe."

    It would be another way that Putin does what he wants without regard for the consequences as long as it benefits him and undermines whatever 'the West' thinks it can do. When it comes to suffering, most people I think agree that Putin doesn't care about that. We shall see.
