The events of last few weeks in Ukraine shows how close heaven and hell are to each other. A few months ago, Fareed Zakaria of CNN was calling Putin the most powerful man on the planet earth. Two months ago, Putin was in high heaven. He was a dictator who was loved by most of his own people. He was given the right to be the president of Russia for life. He had all of the money the world. He was a true Tsar of Russia.
However, all of that was not enough, he needed to prove to himself and the world that in case there were any people who did not know that he is really the most powerful man on earth. So, he could not help it. He had to win a war.
I thought of him as one of the most intelligent leaders of the world, but he came up with the genius idea of invading Ukraine. This is not a war. It is the worst screw up that I have seen in my life. I used to think that Saddam Husain's invasion of Kuwait was the worst stupid war of all times, but invasion of Ukraine is worse than that. Saddam Husain with all of his madness, at least conquered Kuwait and held on to it for eight months. Putin's forces are bugged down by the doorsteps of Kiev for weeks.
The two hundred thousand troops with thousands of tanks, armored personnel carriers and zillions of artillery pieces cannot overcome an army as big as National Guard of Texas.
Zelenskyy who was an ex-comedian actor turned out to have kahunas of gold and let Russian generals have it. On top of being a fighter he turned out to be a master of world stage communications. So far that boy has got standing ovation from the parliaments of Britain, Canada and the U.S. When Biden offered him to be rescued from Kiev, he replied "I do not want a ride, give me guns".
While I am writing this piece CNN announced that Ukraine has refused the eight-page delusional terms of surrender and asked for a corridor to get the women and children out.
It was less than two weeks ago that pro Russia gang were telling me that I do not understand geopolitics. I would like to return the favor and say "do not put your trust in narcissistic psychopaths. Didn't you learn anything from Trump's virus debacle?
