War threatened with Russia?
Russia’s barbaric bombing of civilians in Syria, under strict orders from Vladimir Putin, has prompted condemnation from the United States of America, Germany, France and the United Kingdom. The Russians’ aggressive course of action in Syria and especially in Aleppo is intensifying international tension.
The problem with Putin is that he thinks it is legal and acceptable for him to invade Ukraine, take Crimea, target a Malaysian airplane packed with innocent civilians, use barbaric force to kill innocent civilians in Syria to help Assad stay in power, and then to plead not guilty of such barbarism. If Putin can lie to stick to his aggressive plans, what makes anyone think that he is not going to lie with impunity to protect his job and remain at the helm?
Vladimir Putin is a threat to Europe and to the United States of America. Political collaboration is necessary to stop him from persisting in this course of action. There should be no resumption of relations with the Russian Foreign Minister because he is just Vladimir Putin’s puppet. Dialogue with the devil himself is absolutely useless, because he thinks he can do what he likes no matter how strong the opposition to his tactics is.
One solution remains: collaboration between democratic nations of the world and the implementation of a course of action against his barbaric aggression.
Europe still remains the barometer of the world’s political weather... so what are we waiting for?
