Anzio? Stalingrad more like. Or - to go with the theme of Waterloo - Napoleon’s Retreat from Moscow
We are talking a major debacle here, and one that happened to a totalitarian monster. Let’s keep our analogies on target!
I am reminded of Clinton here, his attempt to socialize medicine had hit a brick wall and he pivoted and put it behind him. I grant Clinton with highly developed self survival skills, I wonder whether Bammy has the intelligence to do the same or will go down with the ship? So far my opinion of bammy is that he is unable to be flexible. This is not surprising since he has spent his entire career (I guess thats what you call it) preaching to choir. I doubt seriously that he has the acumen to see the picture and chart a new course. He will deligate that to his advisors - scary.
I like that - especially since they love Moscow so much...
