Was Crocodile stronger at Marineford? Or was he holding back in Alabasta?

 During the Alabasta arc, Crocodile displayed a level of power that was initially considered overwhelming by the Straw Hat Pirates. He possessed the Logia-type Devil Fruit called the Suna Suna no Mi (Sand-Sand Fruit), which granted him the ability to control and transform into sand. He had a reputation as a Shichibukai and controlled the desert kingdom of Alabasta from the shadows. His strength was showcased through his battles with Luffy and others. At Marineford, Crocodile was present as part of the war that took place at Marine Headquarters. While he did participate in the battle, he didn't display the same level of dominance as some other powerful characters present. This has led fans to speculate that he might not have been as strong as initially portrayed in Alabasta. It's important to note that power scaling and character abilities can be subject to interpretation and development by the author. Oda often keeps details deliberately open-ended to keep the story intriguing.

Biden says Putin ‘can not remain in power'

The White House explained US President Joe Biden's affirmation that Russia's Vladimir Putin "can not stay in power" was not a call for shift in power. On Saturday, Biden raised his manner of speaking against Putin as he clearly required the Russian chief's evacuation as a result of his intrusion of Ukraine.
"For the good of God, this man can't stay in power," Biden's said at end of a discourse in Poland's capital as the US president covered his four-roadtrip to Europe.

A White House official explained saying, "The President's point was that Putin can't be permitted to practice control over his neighbors or the area. He was not talking about Putin's power in Russia, or shift in power."

The authority added that Biden's line was not in his pre-arranged comments in which the US president said that Putin is lying in a bid to legitimize the conflict.

Biden criticized Russia's activity in Ukraine saying "It's nothing under an immediate test to the principles based worldwide request laid out since the finish of World War II, and it takes steps to get back to many years of war that assaulted Europe before the global rule-based request was set up. We can't return to that. We can't."

Biden's comment provoked a quick response from Kremlin Spokesperson Dmitry Peskov who said it isn't to be chosen by Biden.

"This isn't to be chosen by Mr Biden," Peskov said. "It ought to just be a decision of individuals of the Russian Federation."

In the mean time, Russia flagged a possible new front in the intrusion of Ukraine as rockets struck the western Ukrainian city of Lviv. Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky repeated his interest from Western countries to send military equipment, finding out if they were threatened by Moscow.

"We've proactively been holding up 31 days," Zelensky said during his daily location.
