Russia terrorism expands

Let’s start with this recent report:

Russia’s actions in the war they started with Ukraine have no limits. There is no line they won’t cross, there is no action too appalling, no atrocity off-limits. This isn’t state-sponsored terrorism, this is state perpetrated terrorism. There is no attempt at a fig leaf of plausible deniability. The fact is that Russian propagandists openly acknowledge the terrorism and call for more, including wiping France, The U.K., and Germany off the map with nuclear weapons.

NATO and many other countries are providing aid to Ukraine, and the more the better. However, at some point NATO needs to draw a line re Moscow’s attempt at slow-motion genocide in Ukraine. Russian success in Ukraine will only lead to further adventures in the rest of the former Soviet states. This needs to be stopped sooner rather than later.

Russia is a lawless terrorist state

Yesterday, Russia carried out the most massive shelling of Ukraine’s energy system since the start of a full-scale war, Energy Minister Herman Galushchenko said. He noted that this attack could have an impact not only on the energy system of Ukraine but also on the energy systems of some of its neighbors.

America under internal siege

Let us be honest about what is happening in the United States right now. Americans are under attack by white nationalist terrorists that are emboldened by the words, actions, and tone of Donald Trump and the sycophantic Republican party.

No, not all mass shootings are white nationalist terror attacks, but a growing number are. And there are way too many mass shootings taking place all across the country: 251 in the last 216 days. You didn’t know there were that many? Well, you’re not paying attention, and often the press isn’t helping. Many of these shootings take place in lower-income and/or primarily non-white neighborhoods, so they receive less coverage – if any.

It has to stop, but the NRA-owned Congress will not act. As voters, you know what to do.
