Did Trump’s Love Of Putin And His Plan To Stop Biden’s Succession Give Putin His Belief On His Ukraine War Plan?

The page one 1/22 Washington Post story about Putin’s many options means to me that Biden has only one: Stop Putin’s invasion. Read that story here.

Economic sanctions after Putin takes Ukraine won’t reverse his occupation.

The 1/22 NY Times article talks about giving diplomacy a chance to work when we know Putin’s history of subterfuge. Ridiculous! Read that story here.

Getting as many arms to Ukraine as fast as possible should be our policy. Biden knows he must exhibit strength and resolve now.

What advice does our military have now? Let’s hear from General Milley!

Putin surely understands that escalation to more than his Ukraine ambitions eventually means implying an unacceptable nuclear threat, but propitiating Hitler didn’t work as Neville Chamberlain proved.

Thus a primary policy of rapidly providing Ukraine with our complete range of non-nuclear weaponry must be urgently pursued. Why spend the kind of money we do and not use its power?

Certainly bi-partisan support for that action will ensue.

You re-read my 1/21 piece on Thomas Friedman’s take on Putin’s dilemmas. Now is not the time for fuzzy thinking!

My contention that war is obsolete does not mean that war will not be used by power maddened Hitler types which includes Putin and his buddy Trump, as he proved in the now burgeoning news of his treasonous attempts to remain President after he conclusively lost.

Stand up now or see Ukraine get taken.
