Western Leaders Witness Loss of Ukraine
National Freedom and the Russians are Coming and Coming!
How to Stop the Leadership Cruelty
All tyrants get corrupted by their own tyranny.
The global warriors have infested mankind with tyranny and transgression. The resulting killing of civilians, destruction of human habitats, cruelty and global disorder are widespread across West Europe having an influx of millions of refugees, and the Russian sphere of strategic influence go unchallenged. All tyrants get corrupted by their own tyranny. Russia, America, and NATO need to be wise, not to become Warrior Empires in global future destruction. Obsessed with weapons and the power of energy (oil and gas), Russian and Western leaders have embarked on reinventing global disasters by a relentless proxy war in Ukraine and its spill-over immediate impacts on neighbouring Poland, Moldova and the rest of Eastern Europe. NATO, the EU and Russia created strategic divides and now bombing perpetuates animosities. There is no check-and-balance strategy open to international accountability – no international law and no so-called ‘preservation’ of the Geneva Conventions. Contrary to the official statements, the daily killings of the civilians go unabated across the Ukrainian war theatre. Russia’s end goal seems to be the destruction of the national freedom and identity of Ukraine as a free nation.
We the People, We the Humanity are reliving the unthinkable horrors, bloodbaths and massacres of innocent civilians watching the daily news on Ukraine and what happened during the two European World Wars – still fresh on the human slate of memories. Wars and aggressions kill people, and do not produce peace and harmony but resentment and degeneration. History illustrates when a nation or its leaders challenge the limits of the Laws of God and approach near the end of their lifespan, insanity takes over commonsense and they tend to ignore warnings and reject all voices of reason.
Analyzing critically and comparatively, most Western leaders defy the logic of reason and honesty while reflecting on the current war between Russia and Ukraine and its spill-over impacts on all nations. Most are not truthful about their capacity of strengths and weaknesses; they pretend to be stage actors to appease the masses as if they are doing something useful to protect human lives as endangered species in war zones across Ukraine. Not so, words do not replace actions. They are fearful of their own obsession with an animosity that could not be defined in a simplistic narrative against Russia – the outgrowth of the former USSR. Do the Western leaders (those of USA, NATO and the EU) have the capacity and determination to stop Russia and its three-month-long invasion of Ukraine? If they claim unity of minds, why can’t they challenge Russia to stop its war against Ukraine? They launched a bogus war against Iraq for hypothetical weapons of mass destruction (2003), but Russia has far more superior advanced weapons against the West and its affiliated entities than Iraq did. Even the US Congress joined the wrongful war against Iraq. Do the US, NATO, and its allies realize the horrible mistakes of the past? Have they learned any moral and intellectual lessons from the living history?
Perhaps, Western leaders have weapons but not unanimity of mind and aim to challenge Russia and its unexpectedly prolonged capitulation of Ukraine on many fronts. Do they view Ukraine as a test lab – how the war will go to encounter Russia in future war zones of common socio-economic and strategic interests? It is fast becoming unpredictable when the fateful conjunction between the old and obsolete and the beginning of new age of visionary peace and sustainable future will grasp the human wisdom. Whatever happens in between, Ukraine is at a great loss being allowed by the Western political mythologists to be victimized by the Russian onslaught. History will haunt Russian, Ukrainian and Western political thinking and cultures for rational answers for generations to come. All parties involved in the war zones seemed engaged in unbridled ambitions and power to enhance their own fame and fortunes.
The UN is Missing Its Credibility and Usefulness
While in Moscow, the UN Secretary-General should have asked President Putin for an immediate ceasefire. Had he the courage and self-confidence as a leader, he should have demanded compliance with International law, peacemaking and respect for the territorial integrity of Ukraine. The UN and its leaders act as if they are ignorant of what is happening on the ground and forgetful of their own chartered-based role-play in global peace and conflict resolution. The UN and its organs were supposed to be active to prevent such horror stories and massacres of the civilian population across Ukraine as happened during the Second World War, but its leadership is no different than the inept leaders of many other global enterprises. They issue statements of “grave concern” while Russia bombs Kharkiv, charcoaled Mariupol lives and habitats, and most importantly, created 10 million or so refugees displaced forcibly in neighbouring countries. What kind of UN is functioning today to resolve emerging conflicts and usher in peace for 21st-century humanity? Its leadership failed miserably as did that of the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) to evacuate the civilians in war zone emergencies. Are international law and the protection of civilians in war zones (Geneva Conventions) just paper-based conventions that nobody cares about or respects in actual conflicts?
Towards Understanding the Facts
Many Western and Russian scholars falsify facts and articulate media-based fictions about the ongoing war in Ukraine. Russian leadership terms it a “Special Military Operation,” contradicting the global view of a war against Ukraine. In March 2003, it was not different when the US-Nato invaded Iraq under a false pretext of WMDs. Sherwood Ross (“US Sponsored Genocide against Iraq 1990-2012 killed 3.3 million including 750,000 children.” Global Research: 12/06/2012), outlined many such pertinent facts. The encompassed picture showed Arabs and Muslims as if they were born in the eye of a dangerous storm that should be crushed by advanced American–Nato technology available to pilots when bombing the Iraqi-Syrian landscape. The push for war is instinctively part of human ignorance and arrogance and is alive in Ukraine. What if the same could happen to Russia? If Russia’s military operations are too confident, they could end up getting surprises from the Western alliances. Whatever remains in the future – however improbable at this moment – could become the truth of the future. Wars contradict human nature and the Nature of the living Universe. It is co-existence and peace that bring people and nations together and help life and relationships to flourish and benefit humans, Nature, the Earth, and the larger universe. Civilizations grow out of peace, not fear and conflicts. The global leaders are destroying the future – our Earth – our universe of peace and harmony.
Global leaders are obsessed with war. They need to learn how to co-exist in universal harmony. They should take a trip to outer space to view the existence of the Earth and how the all-powerful God has created it and continues to manage it harmoniously despite large-scale human ignorance and violations of the Laws of Nature. Could the warmongers grasp the basic knowledge – how the planet Earth exists and moves at its axis and rotates at 1675 kilometres per hour or 465 metres per second which is 1,040 miles per hour. The Earth’s circumference at the equator is 40,075 km. And the length of time the Earth takes to complete one full turn on its axis is 23.93 hours. And how do all living beings get lifelong nourishment within the splendid Universe? Do people ponder and realize how human beings are created by the Divine process and how societies flourish since time immemorial? This understanding is critical for peacemaking and peaceful co-existence within the Universe.
History speaks loud and clear how, in every age and time, few powerful warmongers, often mentally retarded individuals, have always driven mankind to large-scale slaughters, victimization, deprivation, and long-term ripple scars that it never goes away from the human memory and written pages of human history.
To challenge the deafening silence of the American, Russian and Europeans, and of all the authoritarian rulers for global peace and security, the global community must find ways and means to look beyond the obvious and troublesome horizons dominated by the few warlords and continued to be plagued by daily massacres, displacement of civilians, barbarity against human culture and civilizations, destruction of the habitats and natural environment as if there were no rational being and people of reason populating the God’s splendid and living Universe. The global human conscience feels an urgent need to organize peaceful public protests and sit-ins against the warmongers. What is happening between Russia and Ukraine must not be viewed indifferently by all the global war players. If Russian, American and NATO leaders are honest, proactive, and accountable to the global community, they urgently need people with new ideas and creative strategic thinking to cope with multiple scopes of the political conflicts and humanitarian crises and to find peaceful and workable solutions away from the entrenched political box of the few global warmongers.
Recall what this author proposed recently to the leaders on both sides of the iron curtain:
To stop the war in Ukraine, the US, the EU and NATO should have direct face-to-face communication with President Putin. It could be facilitated under the G20 auspices. It is logical when people of diversity and opposing ideals come to talk directly, tensions and evil-mongering are reduced to reason and mutual interest. This has not happened except for military options for weapon supplies and enlargement of the scope of regional conflict. Time and history will neither forgive nor forget any of the leaders if they failed to agree to an immediate ceasefire and peace deal.
