For all those who thought Putin wouldn’t just do whatever he feels like doing, attacking an independent country without provocation, or who even worse, thought he might have some justification for “protecting” Russian speakers in eastern Ukraine, this is exactly what that kind of delusional, denialist, apologist, appeasement mentality leads to. And if he isn’t stood up to now, right now, he won’t stop.
The epidemic should have made it clear to people, you want to live in denial of basic and obvious facts and truths, you pay a big price. There are psychopathic totalitarians in the world who unfortunately are well-equipped to gain control of the machinery of governments and militaries, and when they do, the outcome is never good, for their own people or those of other countries. Your living in a state of delusion isn’t just harming you, it harms others.
Now we will see if there is anyone in the current decrepit administration that has the courage to rise to the occasion, stop the woke bullshit that is destroying our military and our economy, fight back against the insidious Russian attempts to undermine our society and politics and turn this country again into the defender of freedom it had always been. It is truly fightening to have our country led, or should I say misled, by a senile, incompetent political hack at this perilous time.
