Putin is calling the bluff of NATO, Europe, Britain, and the USA (Nuclear Fear Redux: Long-buried fears of Nuclear Armageddon Return for Many”). Do we react in fear or do we call his bluff by recalling that when America was threatened with German submarines off shore, we were reminded that “the only thing we have to fear is fear itself.” Postiive thinking, not the bullshit about Armageddon. Today, nuclear weapons are being used by Putin to call our bluff and see how far he can push the envelope. We need to come together and call his GODDAMN bluff.
According to a report on CBS News, the UN voted to censure Russia with a huge majority. China was not mentioned, but China was also not listed with the fascist autocratic regimes in the wold (four of them) which did not support the majority in the UN. Trump made it look as if he was so much against North Korea with its nuclear armament. North Korea voted NOT to support the censure of Russia and Putin.
Today, it was learned that Trump spoke open.ly about supporting Putin. Anyone who speaks against democratic government is a traitor to the USA. Trump is a traitor who should be accused of lying, cheating, an treason. Those who support the Russian mob int he USA, from DeSantis to Scottt and other Republicans, need to be treated as traitors, too. Those who support the anarchism of libertarianism are traitors because they support the idea that “anything goes.” People like Rand Paul of Kentucky. A traiotor. Mitch McConnell a traitor.
In the name of democracy and capitalism or socialist democracy of Scandinavia, we need to call Putin’s bluff. No questions asked. Stop the fear.
When people acted against the boats carrying Africans to American slavery, they did so, many times, in the name of criminal acts which favored human justice and humanity. In the name of human justice along with PEACE, we need to call Putin’s bluff on this issue of “nuclear fear redux.”
