    Default Too many Ukraine threads

    Do we really need four threads in the backroom ostensibly about Russia and the Ukraine? I understand people like to play fantasy all day with their "my tank is better than your tank" and "B-2 bombers ROFLSTOMP all your AA" but I feel like we could converge the massive circlejerk to just one thread at this point.
    In all these papers we see a love of honest work, an aversion to shams, a caution in the enunciation of conclusions, a distrust of rash generalizations and speculations based on uncertain premises. He was never anxious to add one more guess on doubtful matters in the hope of hitting the truth, or what might pass as such for a time, but was always ready to take infinite pains in the most careful testing of every theory. With these qualities was united a modesty which forbade the pushing of his own claims and desired no reputation except the unsought tribute of competent judges.
