Surely it’s time to expel Russia from the UN. Russia have demonstrated a willingness to breach human rights and are quite prepared to lie to the UN Council. Therefore they are unfit to be in attendance at voting that they can and will veto. It is imperative that the UN acts in support of the non aggressor, in this case the Ukraine 🇺🇦. Russia is clearly unfit to be a part of the United Nations Council therefore it must be expelled. The UN cannot condone a nation that is prepared to tell lies to the Council and is unwilling to address it’s infringements of human rights and what looks like war crimes committed in the Ukraine 🇺🇦. Russia’s presence in the UN is a huge embarrassment which prevents the UN from carrying out it’s intended purpose.
Jens Stoltenberg and President Biden move aside if you’re not prepared to deal with Putin. The World now needs stronger leaders who are prepared to actually sort out Putin : instead of simply tolerating him. This attitude, seemingly endorsed by Stoltenberg and Biden, simply no longer tenable as we witness the daily suffering of innocent adults and children in areas of Ukraine affected by the conflict and unmitigated aggression of Putin and his murderous forces.
Stoltenberg and Biden are simply making NATO look cowardly by not actively engaging Putin. By doing this they have given Putin the upper hand to dictate the agenda. They have given him licence to practice his murderous intentions. The same thing happened in Syria, in Aleppo where Putin was able to decimate a pretty much defenceless population murdering innocent adults and children. The Ukraine 🇺🇦 is turning into exactly the same situation. In all these situations Putin has exploited NATO’s reluctance to actively get involved. In fact he has exploited NATO’s tolerance of Putin’s tactics of targeting the ordinary population: the innocent and the children. NATO have stood by and watched Putin’s murderous and indiscriminate tactics. During all this NATO has shown little compassion but instead upholds it’s club mentality maintaining that they will not get involved unless a member state is under threat. Well this excuse for lack of action is now sounding a bit thin and actually is beginning to look like cowardice. NATO now needs much stronger leadership than Stoltenberg and Biden seem prepared to offer. The World is under threat from a dangerous and ruthless tyrant. We simply cannot wait any longer to deal with Putin: it must be done now before any more lives are unnecessarily lost. There comes a time to deal with a problem and that time is now in the name of humanity we cannot let Putin’s unacceptable behaviour go unchecked. To not do so now is simply another act of cowardice.
Doing nothing to stop Putin is going to leave a lasting stigma for Europe and NATO
Imagine if Putin conquers in Ukraine without the intervention of the West and NATO. For many in the West and in Europe the knowledge that perhaps NATO intervention could have resulted in a different outcome, could leave a lasting stigma and an unwelcome feeling that they could have done more to help the people of Ukraine 🇺🇦. There is a risk that we could feel we could have done something to help. A feeling that we have made to believe that we are powerless even that we were cowardly not to stand up to Putin to force a different outcome. This is not how we want to feel. Historically Britain has always done our best in these situations and as such we have no regrets. Let’s hope we feel the same after this conflict.
Our ancestors were brave and fought for freedom from oppression and persecution: now it’s our turn to step into their shoes
Enough is enough. The situation cannot be tolerated any longer we must raise our armies and turn Putin’s forces back. The situation in Ukraine is now intolerable. This is genocide the same as which has been witnessed before. We cannot any longer watch and read about these events as bystanders. NATO must front up to Putin before an entire country is simply wiped from the map and all that entails to it’s citizens. We must help now . Our ancestors had to make the same choices before and we must make the right choices for the same reasons now.
NATO’s excuses are looking increasingly like cowardice. NATO are objecting to establishing a no fly zone over the Ukraine because of fears about getting drawn into a war with Russia. However if a no fly zone is established why would there be any need for any Russian planes to be there and if so they would be breaking the no fly zone so there would be legitimate cause to attack them. I get the feeling that NATO are simply looking for excuses to avoid conflict with Russia. NATO are beginning to look like cowards unwilling to confront Putin.
We all know what the outcome in the Ukraine will be
We all know what the outcome will be in the Ukraine despite sanctions on Russia to back down but this seems to have no outcome on NATO. Many innocent people are simply being slaughtered by Putin’s forces as NATO and the West just look on: tolerating the bully like a bunch of cowards. So after the Ukraine 🇺🇦 has been crushed do NATO simply look away again the next time? NATO’s response is simply not good enough. Countries in Europe maybe should consider eliminating Biden and the USA from the equation and do what is right for Europe and their individual countries. Biden and the USA remain largely unaffected by events in Europe so should not be dictating terms to those countries that are. Meanwhile as NATO procrastinates, time is running out for the Ukraine 🇺🇦 and the opportunity to make a real difference diminishes.
