The Heroes Of Ukraine May Be Dead Soon

4 03 2022

  By Timothy D. Naegele[1]

If there is beauty in this world, it is being destroyed. If there is hope in the world, it too is being snuffed out. China’s Coronavirus pandemic has killed millions, and destroyed the hopes and dreams of many who remain behind. Ukraine may be next, with Taiwan after that.

Tragically, Ukraine may fall to the psychopathic megalomaniac Vladimir Putin.  And its heroes—including all who have stayed and fought for their freedoms, such as young mothers—may be slaughtered.[2] Putin is a savage killer, with an unbroken track record that stretches back to his days as a KGB operative in the DDR or East Germany, before the Soviet Union collapsed.

The West is full of weak, woke, feckless, cowardly and sometimes traitorous “leaders,” who are no match for an unbridled killer like Putin.  He doesn’t need to seek anyone’s consent, much less run for reelection in any Western “democratic” sense.  No dictators ever do.  Down through the ages—including the Caesars, Hitler and Stalin—they have unhesitantly and ruthlessly butchered their challengers and opposition.[3]

Presumably Putin thinks of himself in these terms, not as some Westernized “democrat.”  To be facing a weak, corrupt, unprincipled and “mentally-challenged” American President like Joe Biden must be music to his ears.  And to know that the Biden-Harris presidency does not end until January of 2025 is a godsend to him—and to his “senior partner” China’s Xi Jinping, who fancies himself taking over Taiwan at the very least.

How can this gloom-and-doom, pessimistic scenario be changed?  By killing Putin now, and everyone who supports him[4]—which should have begun when the first Ukrainian was killed or hurt, and before he was able to sow so much chaos in the country and globally.  Are we witnessing the fall of civilization, World War III and the reemergence of dark ages?  Lots of Americans and others are asking: where is God in the midst of so much suffering?[5]

At the outset of this article, it must be emphasized—and stated clearly and unequivocally—that the author wants the Ukrainian people to be triumphant, and survive.  He wishes fervently that none of them would have experienced a single tragedy, and that dictators like Putin were never born; and that evil is eradicated from the Earth, or does not exist in the first place.

Rabbi Harold S. Kushner wrote a book many years ago entitled, “When Bad Things Happen to Good People.”  The author’s distillation of what he said is that more often than not the bad things that happen are a result of man’s inhumanity to his fellow man.  But where was God in the midst of the most horrific events imaginable, such as the coronavirus, wars and the like?  Why didn’t God prevent them?  God gave men and women free will, for good or evil.  God was present, providing meaning to events that seem so random and unfathomable and hurtful at the time, and giving us the courage to go on, as Rabbi Kushner has written.

OLD MIDDLE EASTERN PROVERB

It only takes two lions to rule over 5,000 shepple. Too bad the Westerners lack teeth. Our foreign affairs are essentially nonexistent. Therefore, any future war we get involved in will likely result in many losses.

So, about all we can do is protest, legislate, threaten, bluff, negotiate, and appease, appease, appease. Too weak to do much else except crack-down and bully Trump supporters and conservatives in the Homeland.

Thank you, Craig, as always.

Yes, I agree.

The tragedy is that the suffering began with the Americans and Afghans who helped us and were left behind in Afghanistan.

Now it is the Ukrainians who will be slaughtered. Next are the Taiwanese.

With the Biden-Harris presidency ending in January of 2025, we may witness nonstop tragedies; and at some point, they will reach our shores.

We have been “softened up” already by China’s Coronavirus pandemic.

Have the Cyberattacks begun already?

Also, it would seem that the only way to stop the carnage in Ukraine, with much worse yet to come — including the wholesale raping of Ukrainian women — may be to kill Putin now. However it is done, and by whom, seems to be the only solution.

See https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-10579619/Baby-rescued-scene-atrocity-Russian-forces-step-attacks-civilian-areas.html (“Photo of baby being carried to safety by Ukrainian soldier exposes the appalling human catastrophe of Russian invasion that has reduced cities to rubble – as deluded Putin continues to insist he is NOT hitting civilian areas”) and

The world must never forget that Pakistan has a nuclear arsenal; and that country sheltered Osama bin Laden.

See https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_states_with_nuclear_weapons (“List of states with nuclear weapons”)

. . .

Lastly, I believe in God and hope, and miracles. The history of the courageous Ukrainian people hasn’t been written yet.

IMAGINE

Imagine knowing that you and your courageous fellow Ukrainians will die, and there’s nothing you can do to stop it. Imagine that other countries offer help but it’s just enough so they look good, but not enough to turn the tide and save you. Imagine if you pray to God, and the killing continues unabated. Imagine if one man is responsible for all of this suffering, but no one will stop him. Imagine how those who died in the Holocaust must have felt, because no one came to their rescue as well.

See, e.g., https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-10580113/All-people-die-Zelensky-slams-NATOs-refusal-establish-no-fly-zone.html (“Russia bombs civilians fleeing Mariupol during ‘ceasefire’: Mayor orders people to turn back after Putin’s forces break their promise to let thousands of families escape – Zelensky tells Ukrainians to ‘continue fighting’ as Russian death toll ‘hits 10,000′”)

If true, how can Putin hide 10,000?

FINALLY, A VOICE OF REASON

See https://m.washingtontimes.com/news/2022/mar/5/electric-car-baron-elon-musk-calls-increasing-us-o/ (“Electric-car baron Elon Musk calls for increasing U.S. oil and gas to combat Russia”)

Brilliant, and absolutely necessary to cripple Russia economically, and end the reign of its psychopathic megalomaniac KGB-trained killer Vladimir Putin before he crucifies the courageous Ukrainians.

Will Putin Decapitate Ukraine’s Leadership?

Vladimir Putin is a KGB-trained killer. He has killed and killed again; and it is all that he knows. It is as if he emerged full born from the Gates of Hell.

See, e.g., https://naegeleblog.wordpress.com/2010/02/09/russias-putin-is-a-killer/ (“Russia’s Putin Is A Killer”)

Like Joseph Stalin before him, he does not care how many Russians die in the process. They are cannon fodder too.

Will his “agents” kill Ukraine’s President Zelenskyy and/or the Klitschko brothers, and decapitate that country’s leadership, and create more chaos and possibly World War III?

Time will tell, but hopefully not. Certainly this is a reason to send him back to whence he came now, before he can unleash more deaths and suffering.
