WWIII Watch: Former Ukraine President Says They Need Weapons, Sanctions, And NATO Membership

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Well, the US and some EU nations have given them weapons. They’ve invoked sanctions that really aren’t doing much of anything. As for NATO membership, various NATO members have been blocking it for almost a decade, and there are enough to block it now, because that starts WWIII fast. Right now they’re just trying to saunter on up to WWIII. This is Petro Poroshenko, who served as president of Ukraine from 2014 to 2019.

Former Ukrainian President: We Need Weapons, Sanctions, and NATO Membership

The winning formula for Ukraine is simple: Supplies of weapons, economic sanctions against Russia, helping to strengthen Ukraine’s resilience, the de-Putinization of Russia, and the accession of Ukraine to the European Union and NATO. Only all the elements of this formula combined would guarantee permanent security for Europe and the whole world.

Napoleon is credited with once saying that to wage war, he needed three things: first, money; second, money; and third, money. Money is the fuel that powers the deadly military machine of Russia that kills Ukrainians. To bring this machine to a stop it will take more than military action. There must be powerful financial punches—indeed an economic crisis—and even social upheaval.

The price for aggression must constantly rise, becoming ever more unbearable. This is the way to change the Russian bear’s behavior, drive it backwards, and spoil its appetite. Putin cannot be stopped by half-steps and half-measures. He will always look for gaps, loopholes, and allies of convenience.

How many weapons does it take? Because Russia has a lot more than could be supplied, unless NATO countries want to strip themselves bare.

The Suez Canal must also be closed to Russian cargo. Doing so would add three to four weeks for a tanker to get from Russia’s western ports to India and China, huge consumers of Putin’s oil and coal. The longer these routes are, the more transportation costs, the greater Russia’s losses, the fewer Ukrainians will die.

Anyone want to take a guess how that would turn out? Think Russia would take that well? Of course, Egypt is a pretty big trading partner with Russia, and isn’t really taking sides between the West and Russia.

The Russian economy is highly dependent on imports. The exhaustion of gold and currency reserves would force the government to further reduce imports, leading to the absence of many vital goods on shelves and the curtailment of many industries. In short, it would kill Russian imports, which means it would kill the economy. Inflation and a sharp drop in living standards would strike directly at the heart of the Russian people. Putin needs his people to at least stay quiet—if not supportive—if he wants to remain in power. But without Putin the world would definitely be a better place.

These people are pushing for Russia to commit to an all out assault on Ukraine, and trying to drag the world in a war.

Is the West escalating the Ukraine war?
One year on, there is no sign of an endgame

Barely a day had gone by from Ukraine’s successful request for German Leopard-2 tanks when the government in Kyiv called on Nato countries to yet again prove their solidarity by supplying it with US-made F-16 fighter jets. While military experts doubt these vehicles will significantly alter the situation on the battlefield, Kyiv touts them as important symbols of Western political resolve. (snip through lots of interesting info worth reading)

For it is in Kyiv’s interests to steer Nato into becoming more closely entangled in the war. Ukraine has resorted to a combination of tactics — including information warfare and exploiting historic Western guilt — to instigate an informational and reputational cascade among Nato members that would assure accedence to Ukrainian demands. Given its clear long-term weaknesses in quality manpowerartillery, and ammunition, the Zelenskyy government has shrewdly fought a hybrid war from the start, knowing that Ukraine cannot defeat Russia without Nato fighting on its side. The question now is whether the West should allow itself to be entrapped into that war and jeopardise the fate of the entire world in doing so.

There seems to be no strategy other than Ukraine dragging the West deeper and deeper. And there seems to be no strategy from the West except to be dragged deeper and deeper. There seems no plan. It’s like going into the Super Bowl without game planning, just winging it. Of course, if you lose the game, the world doesn’t blow up.

      Next he will DEMAND Nukes, Aircraft Carriers, Satellites then EVERYTHING. WHY NOT JUST SURRENDER THE ENTIRE WORLD TO HIM? (sarcasm)

      Can someone please take this globalist puppet actor off the stage please. Someone please tell the puppet zelinski that his 15 minutes is over and he should exit before he gets stoned to death. I hear he has many supporters in the metro Detroit area. I would love to hear him speak. Preferably in an open outdoor area surrounded by a lot of tall buildings plenty of cover and easily access in and out.
