Must be part of Nuland’s months of preparation statement. Guessing she thought real hard about this tactic.

Is blowing up the dam, the flooding, complicating water provision for Crimea and the nuclear plant part of a strategery to delay the Russian advance or eventual river crossing in order to buy time for a ‘coalition of the willing’ to move into Western Ukraine in order to attempt making a frozen conflict ‘inevitable?’ What happens when the Russians steamroll over our people? Did we get the explosives from Japan yet so that we can shoot back?

In a war that has video for pretty much everything, it is a bit strange that there isn't something out there, or will be. Guys have been tracking planes in the Nordstream demolition, they've got drones up the wazoo, etc, etc. Simpilicious has video of mortar rounds (he says they might be underwater mines) or arty rounds going off in the water too.

Give it a day or so. More info will come out.

Moon has plenty of interesting conjectures here about the cause of the dam’s collapse and how its timing, in particular, serves to divert attention from the failure/meager gains of the “counteroffensive.” Also Ze has been blabbing thanks to the media for their continued cover…things seem to be spiraling out of control. I notice Mercouris looks more drawn and worried by the day.

Alex Christoforou is saying that UK Foreign Minister Michael Cleverly--who was just about the first out of the gate denouncing Russia on this--made a "secret" trip to Ukraine yesterday and met with Zelensky. Hmmm. But no link.

Everyone knows who did it. And I'll give you a hint. He is a senile idiot with lots of criminal handlers.

Also let's take a minute to honour those who bled on the Normandy beaches 79 years ago and apologise to them for how things have turned out.

And the top story in Britain is Prince Harry giving evidence in court. We are on a diet of bread while the circus performs. I despair.

Ukraine has the most to gain.

Everyone knows their spring offensive has no chance, and would have resulted in huge Ukrainian casualties. They even tried a few large scale attacks that failed miserably.

Blowing up the dam gives a scapegoat to pause the long awaited Ukrainian Offensive.
