Quotes for a war: fake quotes for fake experts
I am sure that you have noticed the many analysts, (former) generals and (former) politicians who come out of the woodwork to comment on the war between Russia en Ukraine. That war is sexy hot and these gents and ladies are much in demand with the media and when they run out, they just shove…

The freedom of the internet sometimes makes you bump into people whom you, at first, sympathize with, and then at some point you discover, almost painfully, that while you share a common interest or viewpoint, you fundamentally came at it from different angles.
