The Sequel…

A few days ago, I wrote a piece on Ukraine’s need to sue for peace with Russia and the comments were as expected, quite scathing:

No Ukrainians were interviewed by the author of this article.

Which is weird, because he appears to be a Russian puppet.

This dude claims to be a bibliophile only I don’t think he’s read much at all. Putin troll more likely.

He should be writing about something he knows about. He reads the same news as the rest of us, then spits out some nonsense.

But It must be stated that I have absolutely no problems with my points being eviscerated by those who have taken the precious time to read what was published, in the very first place.

This article was written to provoke debate among those who deeply care about the state of the world.

And regardless of what your political leanings are, the state of the world is cause for major concern: from coups in former French colonies in West Africa to war and genocide in Sudan to climate change emergencies in Pakistan, Greece, America and Libya.

And when we add the Israeli genocide of Palestinians and Ukraine’s interminable war into the mix, do we start to have an idea of the peril in which we are all caught up in right now.

But back to the subject of this article.

Without America’s unconditional financial backing, it is almost impossible to see how Ukraine achieves a decisive victory over Russia, in the coming weeks, months and years.

And America, in the 21st century, is indeed a strange beast.

The Republican party, which played an outsize role in getting the whole world to embrace liberal democracy, while simultaneously disintegrating Soviet Russia in the late 1980s, is incredibly pro-Putin in 2023.

Donald Trump is as far removed from Ronald Reagan and George Herbert Bush as can be, and the billionaire businessman has his party in his back pocket while Russian dictator wields considerable influence over Biden’s immediate predecessor.
