Putin's War and the Threat of Nuclear Catastrophe

He is a nasty little man, the kind of little man who needs to hurt others to make himself feel bigger.

He is a foul bully who only Cons and political thugs like Donald Trump can admire,

He claims he wants to "de-Nazify" Ukraine.

But who is the Nazi now?

For let there be no doubt, this is a crime against humanity.

Russian forces have unleashed an attack of Ukraine on the orders of Vladimir Putin, who announced a “special military operation” at dawn, amid warnings from world leaders that it could spark the biggest war in Europe since 1945.

I'm sure the Ukrainians will fight heroically to try to stop the Russian hordes, but sadly I don't think they stand a chance against such a powerful invading force.

But every act of resistance will be celebrated all over the world, except by our traitor Cons, who are already turning it into another excuse to attack Justin Trudeau.

Just like the scummy Republicans are using the situation to attack Joe Biden.

Which is so sick and so cowardly, it amounts to treason in my book.

Unfortunately though, Canada and other democratic nations can't do much to help the Ukrainians militarily speaking, because the fascist dwarf is threatening other countries.

"Whoever tries to interfere with us, and even more so, to create threats for our country, for our people, should know that Russia's response will be immediate and will lead you to such consequences that you have never experienced in your history.

And I don't doubt that means if cornered or humiliated he might unleash a nuclear war.

2002 report showed that if just 300 of Russia’s 1,600 deployed strategic warheads were detonated over US urban centers, 78 million people would die in the first half hour. In addition, the nation’s entire economic infrastructure would be destroyed—the electric grid, Internet, food distribution system, transportation network, and the public health system. All of the things necessary to sustain life would be gone, and in the months following this attack the vast majority of the US population would succumb to starvation, radiation sickness, exposure, and epidemic disease. A US attack on Russia would produce comparable devastation there. And if NATO were involved, most of Canada and Europe would suffer a similar fate.

I also don't doubt that Putin is right about this.

In a rambling speech early Thursday, full of festering historical grievances and accusations of a relentless Western plot against his country, Mr. Putin reminded the world that Russia “remains one of the most powerful nuclear states” with “a certain advantage in several cutting edge weapons.”

For unfortunately Russia does have an advantage in a number of new weapons like hypersonic missiles. 

Hypersonic weapons such as Russia's 3M22 Zircon fly so fast and low -- at speeds of up to Mach 6 and at a low atmospheric-ballistic trajectory -- that they can penetrate traditional anti-missile defense systems.

The missile flies with an advanced fuel that the Russians say gives it a range of up to 1,000 kilometers. And it's so fast that the air pressure in front of the weapon forms a plasma cloud as it moves, absorbing radio waves and making it practically invisible to active radar systems.

Missiles that could turn a lot of Europe and North America into a fiery wasteland, before we even knew what hit us.

And before you think that nobody, not even Putin would be crazy enough to use them against us, I urge you to watch this tape closely and see if it changes your mind...

Because to me Putin doesn't just look like a monstrous bully, he looks like a maniac with his finger on the nuclear button.

There are rumours that have been circulating for a while, claiming that the weird little man has been showing signs of extreme paranoia, and is becoming more and more belligerent.

Which needless to say is alarming.

But there is no need to panic, the resistance is rising. Putin will eventually be seen to have made a fatal mistake. People all over the world are demonstrating in the streets and denouncing his murderous assault on Ukraine.

Including in Russia where crowd have gathered in cities across the country chanting "No to War"

Even though they know they will all be arrested by Putin's Gestapo police who have already arrested more than a thousand people today.

So I figure, that if those Russians are brave enough to let their tiny dictator know exactly how they feel, so can we.

And I've got a great new version of a grand old song to help get our message across.


For peace isn't weakness its strength. And solidarity is the only way to go.

There are many ways to reduce Russia to a bankrupt pariah state.

So let's unite to help take that little dictator down, and save our precious world...

NATO is the aggressive bully and Russia is the weakling that has to fight back or be consumed.

Strange but from what I know have seen on social media MPs from all parties are tweeting in unison with Ukraine and denouncing the invasion, and I'm guessing that your lack of samples of tweets "attacking" the PM on display for your cadre of gullible followers is proof of this.

Try not to choke on the irony of your own hypocrisy of attempting to politicize this and lying to advance your own political agenda.

Simon said...

Hi Steve... NATO may be a little pushy at times, but it's the Russians who are carving up Ukraine, not the other way around. It's important not to get confused and spread misinformation. Especially when the bad guys could blow us all to kingdom come...

Simon said...

Hi anon@9:38PM...I'm talking about con supporters who like Republican supporters in the U.S. are clearly siding with Putin. The reason they like him is because they consider him a "good Christian", which just happens to be the reason so many Con MPs sided with the terrorist truckers.
But if you con't believe me, here's what Dale Smith had to say this evening, in an exchange with Senator Paula Simons:

"Isn’t it great that conservatives, federally and provincially, are openly spouting this sort of conspiracy theory? So wonderful for our democracy, guys."

Trying to claim that Klaus Schwab and the WEF are manipulating Canadian foreign policy on Ukraine.

I have heard a variation of that conspiracy theory many times before. But at a time like this one it's absolutely obscene...

Do better Con, before you start sounding like a Putin propagandist...

What...misinformation like Harper got Canada involved in Afghanistan?? OK dumb-ass.

Simon said...

Hi anon@10:41....No, you're the dumbass. You seem obsessed with Afghanistan, but like most Cons you can't get the details right. Yes the Afghan mission was already underway when Harper became Prime Minister. But he was the one that kicked it up a notch and extended it when he should have closed it down. So many lives wasted just to try to make the ridiculous nerd Harpo look like a Great Warrior. I don't know how he can live with himself. BTW did you know that Putin is on Twitter and follows just 22 people, with one of them being Harper. I think your master Harper is hiding a few secrets, and we are going to expose all of them, just in time for the Con leadership vote. Won't that be fun?

Jackie Blue said...

For all the Kremlin Kudatah Klan acolytes on this board looking to sow FUD: The only reason Cons are clearing the lowest of bars paying slacktivist lip service to Ukraine is to push Ethical Oil petro-patriot climate denial bullshit, lambasting Trudeau and the Liberals for not "liberating" the tar sands as a supposed poke in Putin's evil eye. You don't really care about the Ukrainian people. You care about how this crisis affects the price of WCS on the market. You should be ashamed, but I know you don't have the capacity to care.

In reality it's long overdue that every Tory Trumpist tankie own up to their IDU puppet master's cozying up to the likes of Putinesque thugs like Viktor Orban and incendiary polemicists like Tucker Carlson, and the fostering of those like Tovarisch Tucker domestically. Explain how to reconcile your party's support for democracy with your eagerness to push lies through King Rupert's propaganda house of distorted mirrors. We see you. We're not stupid. We know Cons will resort to anything to "own the Libs."

Or have you forgotten already it was merely a few days ago you were calling Trudeau a dictator, a gross distortion of facts even as a real dictator goes on the warpath? Have you forgotten that it was Adolf Harper who blindsided the Liberal government by paying a visit to the White House for a "friendly chat" with Putin's puppet regime in D.C.? Don't try to rewrite history. Cons have shown no qualms about siding with the Groupies Of Putin (GOP) if they think they can fight dirty against the devil-incarnate Trudeau. And pad their greasy wallets in the process.

The fact is Cons support dictators, full stop. Cons are as corrupt as the filthy oligarchs behind Putin and you all have blood on your hands. I sincerely hope that there will be a full-blown investigation of, and crackdown on, Ruble Media and its dezinformatziya ilk that blows the Compromat Party of Canada out of the water and out of political contention once and for all. The end of Putin and his aspirational copycats like Trump and Harper can't come soon enough.

There seems to be solidarity in Canada in condemning Putin for invading Ukraine, however, if the Cons thought they could benefit from saying otherwise(eg. Syria), they would. In this case I would say that due to the majority Caucasian population of Ukraine and the fact there is a large population of Ukranian Canadians, the Cons didn't fuck up again by making this just another wedge issue. Meanwhile in the land of lard and money, Benedict Donald is publicly fellating Putin for his "genius", ugh. Same with the other GOP jerk-offs who are doing the same and especially the weasel Trucker KKKarlson. The best thing that could happen to the good old USA right now is if a cruise missile or two were to stray off course and hit Fox news and Mar a Lardo simultaneously. Boom! Boom! Fixed.
My heart goes out to the Ukranians whose innocent lives have been turned upside down by the deranged, paranoid megalomaniac Putin. Seeing them dazed and hunkering down in the subways with their little kids was gut wrenching to see. I wish they had listened to Biden who was pretty much bang on about the invasion while Zelensky led them into a false sense of security. So now what do they do?
The little dictator who could easily be mistaken as a product of inbreeding has just shit on our entire planet that was just beginning to recover from the pandemic and now Putin has ensured that things will only get worse before they get better. On a brighter note, word is that their markets tanked today so once all of the sanctions kick in, hopefully they reduce their ruble to junk metal status.
Chrystia Freeland looked quite distressed today for obvious reasons. Her beloved Ukraine being invaded will take a toll on her but it will also fill her with the resolve of destroying Putin. If anyone knows how to rattle his cage it's her and he's given her every reason in the world to rain hell down on him. This will be Putin's Vietnam except this time, the entire global democracies have condemned him and now, even his own people, at considerable risk, are rising up against him. Once the body bags start piling up it can only get worse for Vlad the invader.
I believe that whether Putin's insane or not will be judged by his inner circle and I pray there are adults in the room. If this ego driven invasion eventually becomes a threat to Russia's very existence, I believe that Russia's version of the 25th amendment will kick in and Putin will either be poisoned(oh the irony) or will take a walk in the snow, never to be seen again. Fingers crossed.

Georgia thought that NATO had their back and look how it turned out for them. Look at the weak response from the West back when Putin stole Crimea. This is practically saying, without saying it, that these countries and their people don't matter.
"Putin is a mad tyrant, his actions are unacceptable and won't be tolerated... But we need his gaz and we don't want to piss off those Russian oligarchs that bought so many luxurious properties here and donate to our political parties..."
This is like how the FluTruxKlan Clownvoy became emboldened from the non-response from law enforcement.
So far, the reaction has been slow and timid and everybody has rejected the idea of involving NATO troops. I bet POS Putin knew this would happen.
But what's to expect from the same "civilized" nations that let Yemen be the biggest humanitarian crisis in the world and do absolutely nothing to put an end to this. Let our best buddy Saudy Arabia play with all the toys they buy from us. Yemen is just a sh*thole country anyway.
So sorry Ukraine, but you're on your own. Our inept governments will do the bare minimum until POS Putin gets bored or China decides to yank his chain. Taiwan, you're next...

Simon said...

Hi Jackie....Glad to hear from you. I have been feeling somewhat beleaguered having being bombarded with more than a dozen Con comments each one crazier than the other. They really are a mess, the collapse of the terrorist convoy hit them hard. And they must be terrified what's going to happen to them when the inquiry begins into their support for the trucker thugs. I can easily see a couple of them going to jail. And of course, as you point out, after calling Trudeau a dictator for so long, what's happening in Ukraine is making them look like idiots. It's all so sordid and depressing, but at least we won't have to worry about the traitor Cons for a good long time...

Simon said...

Hi JD...My hope is that Putin's corrupt inner circle will find some way to eventually get rid of him. And that can't come soon enough, because there is something definitely wrong with him. He sees himself as some kind of Messiah, who has been selected by his Orthodox God to restore the glory of the 18th Century. And when he realizes he isn't, I fear for him and us all. He's now calling the Ukrainians Nazis while acting like a Nazi himself, He's also calling for the Ukrainian army to revolt, when the Russian army that is conscript heavy is far more likely to rise up against him. Invasion is one thing, occupation is another. In the meantime, seeing what the pocket dictator is doing to the poor innocent people of Ukraine is making me so angry. Coming after the Con terrorist convoy, I fear I'm going around wth smoke coming out of my ears, and may have to wear ear muffs in summer so as not to scare people too much.... ;)

Simon said...

Hi Carl...There is no doubt may serious mistakes were made by both sides to get us to where we are now. I believe the biggest mistake was NATO's failure to understand how many Russians were humiliated by the collapse of the Soviet Union. NATO should have reached out to them, and reassured them that their future would be brighter, and welcomed into the European family. But instead they tried to humiliate them further, and while most Russians were able to move on despite some dreadful hardships, people like Putin were left nursing a bitter resentment that has now come back to haunt us. I honestly don't know how we are going to get out of this one, sending in NATO troops I believe would only make matters worse. But one thing is for sure, we need a new generation of leaders, who rather than playing Cold War games, can focus on saving our burning planet before it's too late....

Pat King gets to rot in jail for the foreseeable future. Good. Next court date, March 18th. Great news when most is about the travesty occurring in Ukraine. It really puts into perspective of just how petty and insignificant the freedumb convoy was when the people of Ukraine are fighting and dying for their very existence. May Putin rot in hell.


DDR said...

Waiting with baited breath for Skippy and the other traitors to Canadian democracy to make up their next latest and greatest scandal (dramatic music)
Trudeau, Fidel, Bigfoot and Elvis aided and abetted Putin, in the invasion of Ukraine!

Simon said...

Hi JD….Yes it’s good to see that Pat King will be spending at least the next two weeks in jail. By my count he threatened Trudeau’s life at least three time on his grotesque FB channel before he was arrested, so he can’t get enough prison time as far as I’m concerned. Unless we can neutralize that kind of incitement to violence, we will end up like our southern neighbours, in a hell of own making. Not long ago that kind of violent talk would not have been tolerated, so we need to make an example out of King, to discourage all the other Cons. And that includes Ford’s daughter who is clearly out of her mind….

Simon said...

Hi DDR…..Levels of Con paranoia have reach new and disturbing levels, and some of the SoCons are actually cheering for Putin claiming that he is fighting a “cabal of pedophiles.” The world is truly going crazy, and I fear for our future. We should have cracked down on this madness long ago, but although I’m an optimistic person I fear it may be too late. The Con traitors need to be put down and forced to begin acting like Canadians…
