PUTIN REMEMBERS RUSSIA'S PAST so HE CAN REPEAT IT
Checkmate Russia! Give Emergency NATO Membership to Ukraine
This unconscionable war is not Russia’s first perpetrating genocide on its neighbor Ukraine.
The Russian genocidal monsters murdered four-to-seven million Ukrainians before. Let’s cut to the chase. The civilized world in search of global peace cannot meander, waffle, and be “patient” about a total war waged against a UN member state. Time is of the essence.
We did not start this war. We must end it.
PRESIDENT BIDEN: RUSSIA HAS FAR MORE TO FEAR FROM US THAN WE FROM THEM! America with NATO is a unified, blunt force Russia cannot take out. As for sanctions:
“Sanctions make a substantial contribution to power based on privation, and they have never hurt a single despot in the whole history of their use.”
Sanctions never worked in history. Sanctions failed to work on North Korea, Iran, and Russia. More sanctions will have the exact same effect.
Sanctions will not deprive Russia’s economy of the oxygen it can easily generate bypassing the west’s financial institutions, or Russia’s acquisition of technology through hacking and other bad actors China, Iran, Venezuela, Cuba and “friends.” Include America’s profiteers and deceptive punditry busy propping up the Putin regime. Most importantly, sanctions have only the power the Russian people believe about them. Whereas, arguably some diversity of opinion exists among America’s media, given the curious’ ability to find it, there’s none in Russia’s.
The Russian people are deluged with state-generated inventions, fake Ukrainian history about the RUS, convincing arguments for those willing to be convinced. Add repetition and falsified evidence. Just as it went down for the American people who willingly convinced themselves with CNN’s and MSNBC’s drivel. As well as their own. Hammered for a solid four years, 24/7, with the Trump-Russia collusion fairy tales only children, but not serious people, would have believed.
In fact Russia collusion between 2012 that got us to 2022 did exist. It landed us where we now are. The US media chose to not report the facts. Meaning, the American people didn’t know or didn’t care marinated in their Trump hatred, that their heroes Barack Obama, Joe Biden, Hillary Clinton, DNI James Clapper, FBI’s Jim Comey, Andrew McCabe, and CIA chief Bill Brennan were the main colluders.
The Ukrainian Genocide Chapter-2 will not be stopped with sanctions. Only with force. Keeping the Russian oil spigots open to the west will merely finance the terrorist Putin’s unconscionable butchery of Europeans - and his taking another nation’s sovereignty…before he attacked the next nation, Moldova, Finland, Sweden.
It is why front-running NATO membership to Ukraine must be emergency-prioritized.
Sanctions punish only the innocent Russian people.
Writes Vitaliy Katsenelson at ISRAEL TIMES:
“I belong to a WhatsApp group chat with my classmates from middle school in Russia in the 80s. This is what they told me: Russia was forced into this war. It is getting rid of neo-Nazis in Ukraine. The Russian Army is liberating Donbas and Lugansk from Ukrainian genocide. Their admiration for Putin was at a new high. (The stories I read that Putin’s popularity is hitting new heights seem to be true.) At the end of the conversation, I was convinced they were brainwashed and they were convinced that I’m brainwashed.
We had no shared reality to stand on.
These are folks I went to school with, played in the snow with. I even had crushes on a couple of them. They are kind, good people, but Putin’s TV has completely zombified them. As one of my friends said, they have Russian TV playing in their brains…”
True, neo-Nazis do exist in Ukraine.
They are fighting and dying for Vladimir Putin and Mother Russia.
“Russian President Vladimir Putin signed the Executive Order on awarding the title of Hero of the Russian Federation to (Nazi warlord) Vladimir Zhoga.” - REF
The Russian’s fiction that Ukraine represents a legit buffer zone against NATO’s encircling and encroaching of the terrorist state-turned-gas station goes both ways. Ukraine is also a buffer zone against the Russian Federation encircling and encroaching on Eastern Europe. The former Soviet block states want nothing from Russia and nothing to do with Russia, but energy for which they are willing to pay.
Rather than kowtowing to the SQUAD nitwits and their traveling companions, John Kerry, Barack Obama and George Soros, Biden might reverse his ill-considered, diabolical crushing of American energy exploration. Also, reverse his cancelling of the Israel-to-Euro pipeline (the lack of which fund Russia’s genocide). Europe’s energy independence must be restored.
As well as America’s!
The megalomaniac Putin’s unconscionable massacre of humanity, the war criminal’s carnage and genocide he perpetrated on Europe, must end, by force.
Persuasion and sanctions and nice speeches will not persuade a genocidal thug. They never have, they never will.
A billion or two dollars are not enough in a war that consumes tens, hundreds of millions, per day. Inadequate and poor quality weapons will not do it.
President Biden has been slow-walking Ukraine’s defeat. The right weapons system, a UN peacekeeper NO FLY ZONE, Made in Russia Polish MIGs, Aegis SM-1, S-300 and THAAD Interceptors, and twenty billion dollars of military and humanitarian aid, are the minimum. Scare tactics, and silly gibberish about “escalation” from the fearful and Russia colluders, in a world where Russia alone has been doing all the escalations against Ukraine, should fall on deaf ears.
CHECKMATE RUSSIA MR PRESIDENT - HISTORY WILL JUDGE YOU - AND AMERICA:
Demand emergency membership of Ukraine in NATO. It is the solution.
REMEMBER PRESIDENT BIDEN: RUSSIA HAS FAR MORE TO FEAR FROM US THAN WE FROM THEM!
