Problem is that half the the world is being "attrited" by it. And all wars involve attrition..
..and it's almost always the case that those who initiate or precipitate a war or invasion believe the job will be done and dusted in short order - a few weeks, a month, six weeks max.
Ego, machismo and rage undermine clear judgement and fuel the belief/delusion that the enemy will be shocked and awed into submission in no time.
Putin clearly likewise massively misjudged and underestimated the challenge..
