Putin Must Die Now

The title of this article may seem absurd or even repugnant to some.  But the atrocities and destruction in Ukraine may only stop when Russia’s KGB-trained killer Vladimir Putin is dead, like Adolf Hitler before him.  Otherwise, such madness may continue and broaden into a much-wider war, possibly international in scope.

The savagery and brutality that Putin has unleashed is unspeakable, obscene and inhuman, with potentially much worse yet to come.  Ukrainian women have been raped and tortured.  Their babies have been killed or orphaned.  Their husbands or significant others have died or been wounded, or taken prisoner by Putin’s animals, perhaps never to be seen alive again.

All of this is what Joseph Stalin did.  When his military forces entered Berlin at the end of World War II, they raped an estimated 2 million German women, the largest mass raping and degradation of women in human history.  A former secretary of mine was a young girl there; and she told me that she had seen things which were unspeakable, and no human being should ever see.

What Putin has done and continues doing defies all notions of a civilized world, and is barbaric.  But this is all he knows, and it is consistent with the rest of his life.[2]  None of this will end until he is dead.  There is no other way, and he knows it.  A tragic commentary on Russians today is that most of them support him.  Thus, they too have the blood of innocents on their hands.  Even if they are treated as lepers, and ostracized by much of the world for a generation, many or most will not change.

Years ago I was in Germany; and a German woman told me that the only thing wrong with Adolf Hitler was that he had not killed all of the Jews.[3]  Her family had supported his rise to power in Munich; and I listened because I wanted to understand the history of the past, as well as existing German sentiments.

At the end of that tragic war, Germany was divided, with the Soviet Union taking East Berlin and East Germany, or the DDR, which became the most repressive regime in the Soviet Union’s orbit, and where Putin perfected his art of killing.  He is truly a monster now, but many residents of the former DDR support him.  Also, he is spreading disinformation in the United States and the West.  But the truth gets through.[4]

The Godless Putin must die.  How it happens and by whose hand is unknown.  However, the civilized world owes it to future generations to end the atrocities that Putin has inflicted on Ukraine and elsewhere, just as Americans of what has been described as “The Greatest Generation”—and their allies in other nations—sacrificed for us.

We cannot allow World War III to begin in earnest in distant Ukraine.  Putin must be put down now, like a rabid animal.  And the courageous Ukrainians have shown us the way.  They must not die or suffer in vain.  Indeed, the resurrection of those who have died will begin with Putin’s death.
