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.
