1. Why haven’t we been making drone strikes to destroy the
2. Why do we ever persist in wasting time trying to “reason”
with a dictator when it has long been established that you
cannot appease a dictator?
3. Why do we sit around making endless commentaries about
the Russian-Ukraine situation and not taking direct,
immediate forceful action to stop it?
4. Why hasn’t the UN expelled Russia?
5. Why haven’t we destroyed the Russian army instead of just
going after soft targets with sanctions?
6. Why is the world acting so cowardly in allowing a thug like
Putin get away with mass murder and destruction of a
democratic European democracy? His nukes are useless: Never
an option. Putin is a second rate, cowardly dictator with the
same street instincts as Trump: He survives by bribing thugs
and lying about everything ( Dictatorship 101 ).
He is polluting the Arctic Ocean which has the potential to
develop fisheries after the Gulf Stream destroys the North
Atlantic fisheries (Georges Banks) because mankind is too
little too late to stop global warming.
7. Why hasn’t NATO at this point admitted Ukraine, as
repeatedly requested by Ukraine’s president, and then
taking immediate, forceful action to dispel the Russians and
destroy their army?

Since Putin doesn’t have an acceptable off-ramp, it seems we need to help develop internal Russian pressure. That can mount to huge numbers of protestors, including leaders, only if the general population is better informed. Why not use satellite TV broadcasts to channel factual images and information onto unused Russian TV channels? There are French-built broadcast satellites that beam both to Russian and to Europe. Can up-channels from Europe be transferred in-satellite to beam down into Russia and Belarus, obviously in Russian? Such transmissions can’t be completely jammed. Veracity of that information can come from Internet leakage and direct communication using existing private relationships between the two countries.
