TALKS LIKE A NAZI, KILLS, MAIMS & TORTURES LIKE A NAZI. IT’S A NAZI.
The Nazi mentality based as it is in a legacy of a semi-mythological belief that the Nazis were good for Ukraine make a nonsense of semantic niceties.
The Nazi mentality in question is about as simplistic and as hateful as it comes. To those who have this mentality every man, woman and child in the Donbass region of Ukraine is a de facto Russian, a ‘Moskal’ and therefore a traitor deserving death.
This is the view of the most radical terrorist forces outside of the Middle East and provide a direct parallel in this kind of terminally skewed mental process to those within ISIS who conceive all those not adhering to their Wahhabi form of Islam to be equally disposable as human beings.
I hope you see the direct parallel between these two modes of unquestioned mental corruption. It negates all concepts such as compassion. A few years ago I watched a video where ISIS terrorists had stopped a large truck and made the driver get out and face questioning. They then demanded he answer a question regarding some part of the Koran. This would tell them if he was on the right side regarding their religious dogma or otherwise. In this case it proved otherwise and he was immediately shot.
The above is the exact same mentality with which the Ukrainian radicals set up their mortars near Donbass villages, towns and cities in the Spring of 2014 and began firing mortar shells at random into them killing indiscriminately. All were traitors to the Ukrainian nation, dirty ‘Moskals’ and Russians, Russians who these radicals utterly despised and blamed for events which took place before they were born, in Stalin’s era.
Such is the blind hatred which our world has seen so much of in recent years, group thought constructs that permit the most awful acts against fellow human beings without any compassion for others intervening. Done coldly at best, with glee and enthusiasm in I am sure many respects.
It is this mentality that Russia is fighting and winning against in the Donbass today. Having lost upwards of 27 million fellow Russians in world war two it was simply unconscionable to watch as the mentality that saw them die rose again in their neighbour, the country and region which had seen the birth of Russia by the original Rus settlers.
Russia, pushed ever further into a corner by primarily the USA and UK via NATO had reached a point of no return. The radical political atmosphere after the western-promoted coup in 2014 on the Maidan Square in Kiev had built steadily over the intervening years and now, in 2022, Russia had reached breaking point. The Nazi-legacy battalions were now firmly embedded in the Ukrainian army and National Guard, Ukraine had become a de facto NATO state and its president was calling for the regaining of Ukraine’s nuclear status. On top of all this the Ukrainian army was being trained by the West and provided hi-tech weaponry. Then, in recent times Russian intelligence discovered that, as Zelensky had stated, Ukraine intended to take back both Crimea and the autonomy-seeking republics of the Donbass by force and a major assault on the latter was planned.
Was Russia to allow the Nazi-legacy terror forces who hated all those within the republics to wipe out every one of the civilian population there? To stand idly by as the saying goes. And if you think Putin’s words about a planned genocide were mere hyperbole you are wrong. To those invading the republics or at least for a large percentage of them there were no good Ukrainians in the Donbass, all were traitors and deserved to die. Can you imagine the bloodbath that was contemplated for a second? It would have come very close to genocide, I have no doubt at all about that.
This is where we are. Russia is moving forward with its operation to eliminate the very real threat that has existed for eight years now both to it and primarily to the civilian population of the Donbass. It is currently clearing the major port city of Mariupol of those who look to their “heroes” who collaborated and fought alongside the Nazis against Russia in WWII. Russia cannot have such people near it and threatening it, a threat which could only become ever-greater if allowed to continue. The trends were all negative with Kiev abandoning the only road to peace and reconciliation available, the Minsk Accords, with Ukraine arming steadily with the West’s help, its troops training with NATO troops and Zelensky seeking ever more weapons including nuclear weapons. Putin and Russia had no good choices left and acted in the only way left that could stand any chance of a secure outcome for the nation.
That outcome was intended to be and will be the elimination of the intolerable threat that was growing ever more deadly just a short distance from the Russian border, encroaching steadily nearer.
