If you want to stop a theft…

Support Ukraine

Do not ask “Where will it end?” You already know the answer.

Trump and Hitler - their rhetoric compared.

No other option

Disgusting filth

The most soviet-like member of putin’s criminal enterprise is sergey lavrov, the so-called foreign minister of the ruzzian kleptocracy. This miserable pile of rancid rat droppings is best described by the phrase “If his lips are moving, he is lying.”

The West needs to act before the world is faced with a second Chernobyl

ruzzian occupation of the Zaporizhzhia region, including the Zaporizhzhia Nuclear Power Plant (ZNPP) threatens the health and safety of millions of people in Europe and ruzzia, and possibly other areas as well.

Currently, five of the six ZNPP reactors are in cold shutdown, while the sixth is in hot shutdown to produce needed steam. There is only one working connection to the power grid providing the electricity needed to monitor and control the plant.

Wreckless ruzzian forces have surrounded the facility with mines. The IAEA is not given adequate access to the site to assess damage and safety threats. When ruzzia destroyed the Kakhovka Dam the ability to properly cool the ZNPP was threatened. Recently, there have been two drone strikes that hit the plant. ruzzian recklessness and incompetence continually threaten the safety of the plant. A serious accident could result in widespread deaths and illness from radiation. ruzzia has learned nothing from Chernobyl.

The West must make serious, concerted efforts to end the ruzzian occupation and/or targeting of ZNPP regardless of other circumstances of the war. This despite putin’s callous disregard for the health and safety of his own people as well as that of Europeans.

Where are the Patriots?

ruzzia is showering Ukraine with a nearly non-stop barrage of drones, bombs, and various missiles, aimed at civilian targets and critical infrastructure. Ukraine has insufficient resources to fight off these waves of airborne attacks and has been pleading for more air defense assistance. While almost any modern form of air defense would be useful to Ukraine, what they need most are Patriot missile batteries. They have surveyed the continent and determined that there are roughly 100 Patriot systems deployed. Ukraine is asking that seven such systems be transferred to them to keep their people alive and prevent their infrastructure from falling to total ruin.

On 11 April 2024 the European Parliament, by a 515 – 62 vote, refused to discharge the EU Council’s budget until European leaders decide to support Ukraine with additional Patriot air defense systems. Great! But, to date only Germany has actually pledged to supply any more Patriot systems, vowing to send one battery as quickly as possible. Thank you, Germany. However…

If a country in Western Europe has Patriot batteries, they have them for one primary purpose – to defend against ruzzian attack. The growing consensus is that if Ukraine falls, other parts of Europe will be attacked in turn, so it is to Europe’s advantage to have ruzzia defeated now, and driven out of Ukraine’s 1991 borders. So if Western Europe does not want to have to fire Patriot missiles over their own skies to stop ruzzia’s imperial ambitions, they should supply ample numbers of batteries and missiles so that Ukraine can properly defend itself. Ukraine is, in effect, acting as Western Europe’s shield. The Western Allies must provide Ukraine with any- and everything they need to succeed.
