Putin’s ultimate goal is to resuscitate the defunct Soviet Union back to its former glory regardless of what America thinks.
Vladimir Putin is neither Stalin nor Peter the Great but compared to Mikhail Gorbachev and Boris Yelsin, he is a great Russian Leader and KGB smooth operator.
I said it before in a previous article that part of the ultimate mission of Putin is to avenge the fall or the break-up of the Old Soviet Union and to punish the United States for leading the dismemberment of the 15 Russian Republics, and to bring back to the fold few if not all of those countries sharing border with Russia like Ukraine which have not formally joined NATO and are therefore not covered by the Article 5 of the NATO Charter.
Putin’s goal is to start a new formidable Military Alliance with China and North Korea to replace the defunct Warsaw Pact previously led by Russia.
For Putin to succeed in doing that, he first had to find his own Mikhail Gorbachev in Donald Trump to put in the White House to do for Russia what Mikhail Gorbachev was able to do for America and his Allies in the West to destabilize the old Soviet Union.
He had succeeded in doing that even though he had succeeded in waking up America from her slumber.
A second term for Donald Trump in the White House would have spelt disaster for NATO and for America as the arrow head of NATO. America should thank God for having a President in Joe Biden who fully understands that America without the support and solidarity of her Allies in Europe and elsewhere around the world is like a naked Emperor or an empty barrel which makes the loudest noise.
Putin’s decision to carve out two independent Republics out of embattled Ukraine is now his first salvo at taking Ukraine back and only God can tell what happens to the other 15 Russian Republics if he succeeds in forming a more formidable Military Alliance with China as a counterforce to NATO than what he previously had in the Warsaw Pact. Putin has always regarded Ukraine the former Food Basket as part and parcel of Russia, if not as her crown jewel.
If Putin supports China in taking over Taiwan and Hong Kong in the fullness of time, China would also support Putin in taking back not just Crimea but Ukraine and the two independent Republics he has just carved out of Ukraine today thru an Executive Order signed into Law as the maximum dictator of Russia.
The threat of severe economic sanctions from the West may not serve as enough deterrence to Putin because he could easily neutralize the effect of those sanctions by looking up to China and to North Korea and cutting other corners yet to be revealed.
The next shoe to drop is Putin simultaneously signing a defense pact with the two newly created but Russian dominated Donetsk and Luhansk and to use that as an excuse or “Causus Belli” to station his troops as peace keepers in the 2 Republics just like he has done to Crimea with little or no resistance at all. Call him a thug or a mad man. He is a KGB operator who is used to being called names. There is a method to his insanity. If he manages to return Donald Trump back to the White House, it’s all over for America and NATO.
Putin could from his two subservient Republics launch an attack on Kiev, take over the whole country and install a puppet Regime that would be loyal to him. One by one he could start to take back the 15 Russian Republics.
There is no way on Earth that Ukraine on her own could withstand or defeat Russia and there is very little that America or NATO could do to save Ukraine at this point other than maximum pressure thru the United Nations where Russia and China also have veto powers like the United States and are also members of the UN Security Council. Ukraine has to be hoping for the best but bracing up for the worst in a face- off with Russia.
Putin has used Donald Trump to sow enough division and distrust within America and between America and her Allies in Europe to create any serious and lasting problems for Putin. A vote for Trump is a vote for Putin because Trump is Putin’s stooge. You have to be living in another Planet if you don’t yet know or understand that reality
Donald Trump has not only staged a Coup in America on January 6 with some clandestine support from Putin and the KGB. Trump is still actively fomenting trouble in America as he tries to destabilize the Biden Administration and to replace Democracy with Autocracy by indirectly making appeasement to Putin.
The sooner America wakes up to overwhelmingly reject Donald Trump and his appeasement to Russia and to put him to where he belongs, the better for America.
If Democracy fails in America that would be the end of Democracy in Europe and elsewhere around the World.
That would simply mean that Dictatorship and Communism have defeated Democracy and Capitalism all over the World and that could also lead to a major realignment of countries and a big shake-up in World Order as we have all come to know it.
I do not believe that sanctions alone would be enough to deter Putin as most of the American Allies have their own individual problems and security concerns as Putin has also tried to divide them just like he has done to America.
Russia may not be able to sell her goods and products but on Energy and Oil he could easily find other buyers and trading partners.
This development could cause a lot of problems that America and her European Allies have not factored into their equation as Democratic countries which do not have a central control system and a one- man rule like all Communist Countries do.
The Communists are far more united than Democratic countries and they speak with one voice unlike the Tower of Babel we have in America in particular.
If you listen to Fox News, Channel 5, you would think that Rupert Murdock is a paid agent or apologists for Communist Russia as characters like Tucker Carlson and Sean Hannity and the rest of them on that Cable TV are rooting for Russia and criticizing American Government while openly siding with Donald Trump and his boss in the KGB.
If you don’t believe me, just ask Malcolm Nance, the Black Intelligence officer and a brilliant guy with the best analysis on this Development in my opinion.
The article below posted by brilliant Toyin Omodara on WhatsApp on “why Ukraine matters” clearly lays out why KGB Putin would damn any consequence to take back Ukraine even if it is going to cost him his life.
It also explains why the Russian Aggression on Ukraine is also as legit as the Nazis and Moscow’s invasion of Poland in 1939 to mark the beginning of the Second World War. History is about to repeat itself.
Putin’s invasion of Ukraine could predictably lead to the beginning of the Third World War if care is not taken.
I post below and verbatim the article posted by Toyin Omodara. I am not hundred percent sure if the article was authored by Toyin or if she was merely sharing it.
All I know is that the article sheds more light on why Putin is prepared to risk so much in taking back Ukraine.
For those who ask: “Why does Ukraine matter? “
This is why Ukraine matters.
It is the second largest country by area in Europe by area and has a population
of over 40 million – more than Poland.
1st in Europe in proven recoverable reserves of uranium ores;
2nd place in Europe and 10th place in the world in terms of titanium ore reserves;
2nd place in the world in terms of explored reserves of manganese ores (2.3 billion tons, or 12% of the world’s reserves);
2nd largest iron ore reserves in the world (30 billion tons);
2nd place in Europe in terms of mercury ore reserves;
3rd place in Europe (13th place in the world) in shale gas reserves (22 trillion cubic meters)
4th in the world by the total value of natural resources;
7th place in the world in coal reserves (33.9 billion tons)
Ukraine is an important agricultural country:
1st in Europe in terms of arable land area;
3rd place in the world by the area of black soil (25% of world’s volume);
1st place in the world in exports of sunflower and sunflower oil;
2nd place in the world in barley production and 4th place in barley exports;
3rd largest producer and 4th largest exporter of corn in the world;
4th largest producer of potatoes in the world;
5th largest rye producer in the world;
5th place in the world in bee production (75,000 tons);
8th place in the world in wheat exports;
9th place in the world in the production of chicken eggs;
16th place in the world in cheese exports.
Ukraine can meet the food needs of 600 million people.
Ukraine is an important industrialised country:
1st in Europe in ammonia production;
Europe’s 2nd’s and the world’s 4th largest natural gas pipeline system;
3rd largest in Europe and 8th largest in the world in terms of installed capacity of nuclear power plants;
3rd place in Europe and 11th in the world in terms of rail network length (21,700 km);
3rd place in the world (after the U.S. and France) in production of locators and locating equipment;
3rd largest iron exporter in the world
4th largest exporter of turbines for nuclear power plants in the world;
4th world’s largest manufacturer of rocket launchers;
4th place in the world in clay exports
4th place in the world in titanium exports
8th place in the world in exports of ores and concentrates;
9th place in the world in exports of defence industry products;
10th largest steel producer in the world (32.4 million tons).
Ukraine matters. That is why its independence is important to the rest of the world.
Part of my mission in sharing this article is to help the fans of my column all over the world to fully comprehend and understand why Ukraine is worth fighting for and why America as leader of the Free World and the Bastion of Democracy and NATO and the European Union and the United Nations cannot afford to be playing the fiddle while Ukraine is burnt down to ashes by Communist Russia.
I rest my case.
