Provoked by Insipid Weakness
This Morning, 9:00 a.m. 02-26-22, Ukraine Stands
As I explained in my last post, I was in a foul mood all week. In fact, I wasn’t even going to post today.
But this morning, everything changed. I turned on the news and Ukraine is still standing. Its people are defending themselves, fighting for their freedom with everything they have. Meanwhile, I was feeling sorry for myself because I had a bad week. How self-absorbed is that?
Halfway around the world people just like me, are fighting an existential war. There is killing and dying on both sides and … It hit me hard. I really don’t do much, not much at all. I drive a bus. How insignificant is that?
What I do has no effect and does nothing to help the people who are hiding in bomb shelters to survive a needless war. A war waged against the innocent and provoked by insipid weakness. Putin is guilty of waging war on a country that did nothing wrong. But Biden is guilty of provoking the war by being insipidly weak. He imposes sanctions that do too little—too late, and then buys Russian oil. Yes, the United States is still buying Russian oil because of Biden’s domestic energy policy. If you finance an insane tyrant, don’t you share in his blame? Think about it.
So simply put. Guilt has me at the keyboard. Even if I only reach half a dozen, it’s something … at the very least.
Please watch the entire video below and listen to Olena Gnes. Yesterday, her children were in school. Today, she is hiding them in a bomb shelter.
PS – While Olena hunkers down in a bomb shelter and cares for her children, her husband fights for their freedom in the streets of Kyiv. They have the real potential to lose everything.
I don’t know what you did yesterday but I … I drove a bus.
PPS – She apologies for not being articulate enough (in English) to convey her feelings. What do you think?
