Of course he is, because that's how you inform off-the-cuff remarks at conferences.

But now now the CIA is a credible source? Good to know.

That's for the Russians to decide, not US/Euro/NATO bloviators.

Put in a good word, comrade. But avoid tall buildings with windows.

From the same article: "Campbell’s assessment seems to contradict those of the Pentagon and America’s allies in Europe."

So this one dude, speaking at a conference on an entirely different topic, is contradicting people who ought to know—including people much closer to the situation. But he says something appealing to you, so he's credible.

Sure, sounds legit.

But let's say he's right, and the Russian military has recovered from the absurdly high attrition its brute-force tactics have cost it. Then...what? The western world should stop supporting Ukraine so they're forced to submit to an imperialist conquest of their country? Or what?

That mighty military, at full strength, bogged down trying to crush an adversary many times weaker than itself. It is feeding its young men and resources into a meat grinder, gaining a few meters a day. It controls about 18% of Ukraine's land mass, down from 27% at peak occupation.

Maybe Russia should reconstitute its political leadership instead.

Ukraine is at great risk of its front lines collapsing
According to high-ranking Ukrainian officers, the military picture is grim and Russian generals could find success wherever they decide to focus their upcoming offensive.
With a history of urging Ukraine to agree to territorial concessions — and his opposition to the $60 billion U.S. military aid package snarled on Capitol Hill amid partisan wrangling — Musk isn’t Ukraine’s favorite commentator, to say the least. And his remarks received predictable pushback.

But the billionaire entrepreneur’s forecast isn’t actually all that different from the dire warnings Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy made in the last few days. According to Zelenskyy, unless the stalled multibillion-dollar package is approved soon, his forces will have to “go back, retreat, step by step, in small steps.” He also warned that some major cities could be at risk of falling.

Obviously, Zelenskyy’s warnings are part of a broad diplomatic effort to free up the military aid his forces so desperately need and have been short of for months — everything from 155-millimeter artillery shells to Patriot air-defense systems and drones. But the sad truth is that even if the package is approved by the U.S. Congress, a massive resupply may not be enough to prevent a major battlefield upset. (...)

And according to high-ranking Ukrainian military officers who served under General Valery Zaluzhny — the commander-in-chief of Ukraine’s armed forces until he was replaced in February — the military picture is grim.

The officers said there’s a great risk of the front lines collapsing wherever Russian generals decide to focus their offensive. Moreover, thanks to a much greater weight in numbers and the guided aerial bombs that have been smashing Ukrainian positions for weeks now, Russia will likely be able to “penetrate the front line and to crash it in some parts,” they said. They spoke on the condition of anonymity to speak freely.

“There’s nothing that can help Ukraine now because there are no serious technologies able to compensate Ukraine for the large mass of troops Russia is likely to hurl at us. We don’t have those technologies, and the West doesn’t have them as well in sufficient numbers,” one of the top-ranking military sources told POLITICO.

Good point. High time to make Russia pay reparations for the immense damage it has caused.

Those used to come after some country lost a war. For now it just sounds like the West engaging in more piracy/theft. Another can of worms that might boomerang as well (like sanctions).
Despite the structural challenges it faces, and notwithstanding the
legally questionable freezing of $300bn (or around half) of its foreign
exchange reserves, Russia is anything but short of liquidity.
Maybe John Yoo is still available to help with some legalese.

Also high time to actually go through with the sale/liquidation of already seized Russian oligarch assets (yachts, properties) and funnel the money immediately to the Ukraine government.
