• Antinuclear Song from the Cold War (Russians)

    From Marvin Barley@21:1/5 to All on Sat Feb 26 07:39:51 2022
    "Russians" by Sting

    In Europe and America there's a growing feeling of hysteria
    Conditioned to respond to all the threats
    In the rhetorical speeches of the Soviets
    Mister Krushchev said, "We will bury you"
    I don't subscribe to this point of view
    It'd be such an ignorant thing to do
    If the Russians love their children too
    How can I save my little boy from Oppenheimer's deadly toy?
    There is no monopoly on common sense
    On either side of the political fence
    We share the same biology, regardless of ideology
    Believe me when I say to you
    I hope the Russians love their children too

    There is no historical precedent
    To put the words in the mouth of the president?
    There's no such thing as a winnable war
    It's a lie we don't believe anymore
    Mister Reagan says, "We will protect you"
    I don't subscribe to this point of view
    Believe me when I say to you
    I hope the Russians love their children too
    We share the same biology, regardless of ideology
    But what might save us, me and you
    Is if the Russians love their children too

    Dear Russians,

    The question now is whether Mr. President Vladimir V. Putin has children,
    and whether he would like them to live in a Nuclear Winter?

    Such Winter would arise even if the West would not respond with a nuclear retaliation attack, to
    preserve Russian wheat fields that feed many.

    Does Mr. Putin know that radioactive strontium from nuclear fallout has the half-life of 28.9 years,
    which means it would take 90 years for radiation to fall to 12.5%, and only for Sr-90?

    Worse, depleted uranium U-238 has the radioactive decay half-life of 4.5 billion years.

    I hope you are praying for peace as I am. I am also praying for all the Russian peace-loving dissidents
    and people persecuted by Mr. Putin's regime.

    in the name of the LORD God of Abraham,
    Lord Jesus Christ of Nazareth
    and Holy Spirit holy name

    Amen.

    Dear Russian friends,

    What type of democracy Mr. Putin wants to "export" to his neighbour Ukraine when he arrests
    peaceful protesters, who want only peace?

    Mr. Putin is probably wrong when he fears that Ukraine would host NATO nuclear weapons targetting
    Moscow as the nuclear Jupiter missiles were also withdrawn from Turkey.

    It might seem like a strategic advantage, but it would bring the world on a shorter fuse, and I don't think
    that peace-loving Ukrainians would NOT want nukes on their soil.

    My goal is world nuclear disarmament and getting rid of the "Oppenheimer's deadly toy" for good.
    I also pray for world peace.

    This would include an immediate ceasefire in Ukraine.

    Trying to achieve with the military what he failed in negotiations, Mr. Putin will raise the cost in human
    lives on both sides of the fence.

    I hope both sides can return to negotiations, and sadly probably not in Minsk, as Belarus had lost its neutral
    status by hosting Russian troops proxied to Ukraine.

    Mr. Putin's intervention in accord with the "limited sovereignty doctrine" forged in the Soviet Union has drawn
    less independent states to want to remain neutral, as neutrality is obviously not a warrant of peace any longer,
    under the New Rules.

    May God bless all of the peace-loving people In Russia.

    in the LORD God Maker of Adam and Eve holy name
    Amen.

    This might make me look weak before Russians, but I think it is politically correct to fix my error of double
    negative in the sentence above. As I am not afraid to admit my own errors. I am secure enough.

    The correct should be:

    ] Mr. Putin is probably wrong when he fears that Ukraine would host NATO nuclear weapons targetting
    ] Moscow as the nuclear Jupiter missiles were also withdrawn from Turkey.
    ]
    ] It might seem like a strategic advantage, but it would bring the world on a shorter fuse, and I DO think
    ] that peace-loving Ukrainians would NOT want nukes on their soil (not even as an aggression deterrent).

    in the LORD God Maker of Adam and Eve
    Amen

    The proposal of the site for peace negotiations is Helsinki, the neutral ground.
