Mr. Browder, once a major investor in Russia, discusses what influences Vladimir Putin and whether punishing the oligarchs around him could help end his aggression in Ukraine.
Today the western world was bombarded by horrible pictures of
what is said to be civilian’s wo have allegedly been tortured and killed by the Russian military.
I would urge people to be cautious placing blame until an investigation has occurred into what and how it happened.
We are in a storm of war propaganda over Ukraine.
No active side tells the (whole) truth when there is a war on.
Skilled use of misinformation, interpretation and targeting and
This is explicit targeted war pornography.
It speaks not to you, but to your beast.
It speaks to your hate.
We see hundreds of people who have been torn up.
it is hard to even process that for regular civilians.
This gives a shock and outrage response right away and
it is counter to our nature to not want to act NOW.
There is no time for contemplation
Burn the witch, lynch the negro, gas the jew.
and gang rape the girl.
It is time for the strategic bombers to fly.
For the B21 Raider shock and awe.
It is time to nuke Moscow to stop Putin,
Hopefully none of that.
But this is done with purpose and with skill.
It will justify to all what the next step might be.
The citizenry will not just allow it. They will crave it.
They will support anything those in do.
- Soviet landmines shaped like toys to kill Afghan children
- Iraqi soldiers invading hospitals in Kuwait to kill and rape babies
- Iraq WMDs, we act now or tomorrow there will be an be an atomic nuclear mushroom cloud to wake up to.
There needs to be an investigation into how this happened.
The US has 24/7 coverage of parts of Ukraine, I dont know if it includes this part.
If so they might release footage, even if low resolution to show exactly how it happened.
Perhaps the Russians have it.
Either side or both may have reasons not to share it.
It might well be real.
Russia could have done it with intent.
To show the world what they are capable of.
If you mess with us, we will show no mercy.
For the world to see that NATO can’t do anything to stop it.
It could be a rouge Russian unit that lost it.
It could also have been staged by Ukraine with intent.
To justify expanding the war or getting more weapons,
or bring in new actors to the battlefield.
Or it could be a rouge Ukrainian unit that lost it.
I have a suspicion that Zelenskyy was promised a lot more help and assistance by the current administration than what he is getting.
Zelenskyy is having a series of Greta Thunberg moments.
He speaks in front of the most powerful people in the entire world.
They stand and applaud him, cheer at his speeches,
they cry at his losses, and they tell the world how important
This issue is and how we must act now.
But in the end as Greta said it is “blah blah blah blah”.
No real action or help ever comes.
Now Zelenskyy is stuck in a horrible war.
Ukraine cities are getting destroyed,
its citizen feeling, dying, and fighting.
It would never have gotten to this point,
unless he had assurances that help would
come and losses be small.
