Historic Speech of Putin, Sept 30, 2022- (Donetsk, Lugansk, Kherson, and Zaporozhye) ENG Sub
Many of us that live in the US are well aware, we are ruled by psychopaths who have no empathy. They care nothing for the lives of ordinary Americans never mind the lives of others. They routinely order military actions that leave tens or hundreds of thousands of dead over and over again and they could not care less about those people or their families I think we all know that.
The thing is, no one is listening to Putin. I recommend everyone listen to his Sept 30 speech very carefully. Putin knows what we know. He made it quite clear. He knows he is dealing with tyranny. He knows they aim to destroy Russia and he knows he can never negotiate because they are liars and their treaties, agreements and promises are worthless. He knows the history. He knows the lies and the deceit of the 1990's because he lived it. He knows how the west pillaged Russian national resources when the Soviet Union collapsed and then gleefully watched the Russian people descend into poverty and starvation.
The current escalation has reached a level of hostility that the post WW2 world has never even come close to before. This makes the Cuban missile crisis look like a petty squabble by comparison because even then, JFK could still negotiate to make a deal with Khrushchev. Neither of them wanted war. Neither of them wanted to destroy the other but Putin knows you can not make a deal with psychopaths especially when you know the psychopaths want to destroy you and that is why the situation now is exponentially more dangerous. Putin knows.
