From Raskolynikov@21:1/5 to All on Sun Apr 10 08:40:23 2022
As the little Russian is forced (sometimes by authority of fear,
sometimes at point blank) to kill or die in execution of a "special
military operation", little Ukrainian is dying without any influence
on his or her government's policy but being obliged to support
it in distress and danger for the survival of the nation.
Mr. Putin made a crucial mistake to make little people pay for
the big blocks settling their accounts.
I fully understand Mr. Putin's concerns about the possibility that
Russia may be surrounded by nuclear ballistic missiles with
far too few minutes to react in the possible world Armageddon
situation. But fear is the ultimate enemy. Relying upon the LORD
brings man into the shelter of faith (Proverbs 29:25).
Man can never neutralise all of his enemies, this is a futile
attempt. Needless to say, but the means chosen, many died
who did not deserve to die and I have to assert on both sides:
equally unprepared conscripts, thinking they are going on an
exercise without any experience in combat. And the poor
Ukrainian who was forced to defend his family.
Are the thermobaric bombs on the general population in big cities
the right answer to the alleged "Nazification" of the Ukrainian
army and the state?
Such weapons of mass destruction are not justified by the
fact that they might have already been used in Iraq or Syria.
Somehow Ukrainian situation hit us "closer to home and too
near the bone".
Maybe we are inherently racist and we care or get hurt more
when Caucasian, Slavonic people are killed - as it turns for nothing.
There are already healthy forces of the Bald Eagle that question the justification and execution of the use of weapons and methods of mass destruction in Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria and Lybia. Such a force
doesn't seem to exist in the realm of the Great Bear.
The oligarch system doesn't seem to be able to deal with its
errors with methods other than eliminating dissent.
To prevent mankind to go down the slope, the solution is not to
adopt the worst practices of the adversary, but to "overcome evil
with good", and supplant them with new good paradigms.
One of them is refraining from the mass destruction of cities, as
the world pulled back from Hiroshima and Nagasaki, suddenly
realising the victim in what seemed to be merciless brutal
This is the difference between a fight between boxers that
stop and wait when the opponent is knocked down, as opposed
to the beast that will devour the prey instead.
The Ukrainians now seem to be willing to adopt the neutral
status and dedicate and bind themselves to a new non-nuclear
proliferation as in the Budapest Memorandum of 1994.
Why continue to destroy the country and the nation needlessly,
making two brotherly nations enemies with wounds that may
need centuries to heal?
I do not hate any Russian, nor Mr. Vladimir Putin. I respect him
and his arguments. But he thinks like KGB and he misses some
important moves in this game of chess on the board.
There is no ultimate price for peace, and it has the highest value.
The prosperity of any good and noble endeavour depends on it.
