The noise comes to a crescendo! Why doesn’t the US do more to shut down the Russian economy! What the hell are we waiting for!?? Why doesn’t this country lead the way it should?!?
Shut down the oligarchs. Seize and stop chip flow. Shutdown their money transfers and grab their assets in the West! WTF! Are we the US or some nationalistic, regressive country that pulls back from every treaty and agreement we have established in the past 10 years!?! Shit, can we not behave like the superpower we are?!
Well your late to the party, fair weather, silent then and noisy now, whatever you are. Where were you during the Trump years when we cowtowed to Putin, bent over, genuflected, allowed a useful idiot to run a Nazi-like, nationalistic regression focused policy both internally and externally to destroy our credibility? Crickets…
Putin is at this point due to the past regimes relationship. Genius! Peacekeepers at our border. That is said and yet, not a breathe from any of you. If we had the same regime now, Ukraine would already be a blot since he and his would have welcomed the illegal overthrow (remember Impeachment 1). Pompeo, Tucker, and Trump are all over Russian TV supporting the prick. And again, crickets.
But now you voice courage. Now you say WTF America!
We have two words for you.
Now that they are in your ears, try to understand how the world really works. That unilateral behavior like that attacking democracy now, is not the way to build support and ensure success. Swift is a Belgian company interwoven into all the worlds transactions. Just flick a switch and expect magic? The US does not own nor house Swift. We don’t behave like the last regime did. We need to build back the trust, credibility, and validation that was completely eroded
If you want to help, stop the noise and get involved with a solution that includes Europe and beyond. Your rhetoric is damaging. Your words echo the bias inherent in your past silence.
