Since the Crimean crisis , there was a question about Vladimir Putin – what kind of leader is he?
As a former KGB head, Putin seems to have developed a taste for playing a dictator, but to me he is just an outdated macho politician like a pre-teen, complaining that his baldy head hardly match with Lenin’s thick eyebrow.
Through Crimean annexation, it is clear that what Putin wants from the West, especially from Obama administration, is the good old Chamberlain who can shove it off Churchill’s disgruntled face.
Of course, Putin knew the West couldn’t do anything to prevent him from devouring Ukrainian sovereignty in the name of gunpoint democracy. Majority of Ukrainian agree to that annexation, take that, Westerner!
Yeah, you can rape any girl and get away with it if you are able to convince the girl to marry you, right?
Well, that may not be the flaw he alone is responsible for; but the Crimean merger to Russia was a calculated disregard of international laws, and it cannot be dismissed as an unwarranted inevitable.
Unless we want another Adolf Hitler in our time, the cool-headed retribution seeks for attention of all parties of the West.
If the Putin’s Russian troops behave like a bunch of old hobos, then show them that the world has changed, and we are living in a different, quite civilized, world from their rustic daydreaming.
Putin will further test the patience of the West. It is imperative to consolidate the European forces to converge in the sombre efforts to stem that old lunatic from dreaming of his old KGB orgy to make the whole world turn upside down.
We cannot underestimate a possibility of armed conflict between Russia and Ukraine.
“There is no intention of the Russian Federation to do anything like that,” said Vladimir Chizhov the Russian ambassador to the European Union, according to the World Post , and he also added that Russia doesn’t harbor “expansionist views” and didn’t have its eye on other Ukrainian territories.
That’s what exactly Hitler had said to the world, which led the Great Britain to a belief that diplomatic measures could save Europe from war. We all know how all those words turned out in the end.
The bottom line is we all hate war; but we cannot avoid a war only by hope and endurance; if the evil strikes, we’d better strike back.
