"I don’t want to take anything away from the Ukrainians, who have basically been a banner case of military transformation, but it also helps that the Russians are really, really bad at the whole 'war that involves more than bombing hospitals' thing."

A lot of unnecessary pessimism and malevolence exists because good people assume the bad guys are super-competent and have more power than they really do. They need to appreciate that the bad guys are the incompetent weak ones, and will ultimately capitulate from sustained resistance from the good guys, often quicker than we imagine is possible in the heat of battle.
