When we'll look back at the history, we will be ashamed at what the West did not do --- WE did not STOP the War from expanding.
NATO and the West have got it all wrong in Europe. This is not a NATO vs. Russia conflict; it's a Democracy vs. Dictatorship fight for Europe. Putin's already sliced sections off Moldova and Georgia, they're next for a full scale invasion. And they're not a part of NATO, so easy pickings.
One man once scared all of Europe into submission and you're allowing that same type of Nazi to take us into another world war. Yes, we are in one now"
The Annexations are Over"This is Poland --- 1939!
The still uncounted deaths and destruction that will destroy Ukraine can be stopped, but it will take more than the nothing, or the not enough, that is present.
The West needs to do something Brave!
Recall the final battle stand scene in the movie, "Saving Private Ryan".
Tom Hanks' character, propped up against the stone wall of the bridge; wounded fatally, fires his .45 at the Nazi tank crossing over. Bullets pinging off the metal monster's skin.
He then fires his last shot in defense of his comrades and the cause, and just as all hope seems lost for his remaining squad the Nazi tank explodes as if the power of a single bullet, from a single soldier, gave them time, hope, for a tank buster missile to be fired from an American fighter plane".. it's a moment that seems right, justified.
Well, that squad of soldiers left to defend a bridge in that movie are now being played out in real life by every Ukrainian soldier throughout Ukraine"..until the last shot.
Only they aren't lucky enough to have a justifiable ending to the New Nazis who are attacking his fellow soldiers, and families in Ukraine. Unfortunately, this isn't a Hollywood movie ".But it could be, and perhaps it should be!.
I understand. No one wants to take a chance on starting a nuclear war. Putin knows that, it's his most important weapon in this invasion war. THE FEAR!
In 1939, it was the fear of just ANY war. Yes, it is different now. Mass destruction is on the table now; but it will always be so, and by any nation. We can't live in such constant fear. Asteroids or bombs, so far, nothing in life is guaranteed except your eventual death".sometimes we have a choice to die for protecting a simple principle staple of humanity".In this case --- Freedom!
If Putin should next decide to consolidate Moldova and Georgia into his new empire will you allow Russia to walked into Georgia and Moldavia and not do anything because they are not a part of NATO? And will the West acquiesce when Putin next threatens to move into Estonia, will you then step aside because he might use a nuclear threat"?
Or, would Estonia finally be that, bridge too far"?
