Dutch -- Ali Velshi led off his program from Ukraine yesterday with an historical record of what Putin did to Chechnya in his rise to power. He was absolutely ruthless in engaging in an endless bombing camping after his inept soldiers could not subdue the Chechnian soldiers or the populace. He basically reduced Chechnya to rubble and then installed one of his strongmen to force the people into total submission. I know you are well aware of all that history
He did the same thing in Syria. Bomb the shit out of any city or community that resists because his "boots on the ground" are not up to the task. Throw in a little chemical in those bombs for good measure. That allowed the strongman Asad to hold power.
Now he is doing the same thing in Ukraine. He will obliterate Ukraine's cities and infrastructure to rubble, install another ruthless strongman, and then force the people into total submission...or will certainly try. He is a mass murderer without a conscience. History will not be kind to him.
Yes, he is crazy by our standards, but not to the authoritarians of his ilk including those "Rootin for Putin" Trump Republicans. It's in their DNA.
Thanks for correcting my "Freudian slip" when I typed "Trump" instead of "Putin". You know there are so many similarities. I think of Trump as being a Putin if they were both unchained by laws and civil norms. Only one is currently reined in by laws, but what if the attempted coup worked?
