A baffling question ...


Just a few days ago I posted a short entry that told of my fear and dismay with the United States as it has become. I mentioned that, to my mind, it is a disgrace beyond imagination … referring to those who see Vladimir Putin as a strong and brilliant mind (that list being topped of course by ex-president Trump.)

One blogger posted this: “Putin did not dare invade Ukraine while Trump was president.” I was puzzled by it because it is so blatantly incorrect. It’s true that Putin sat back when Trump was President but that was not from fear of him. He, and the leaders of China and North Korea, knew that Trump idolized “strong men” and they all used it to their advantage.

Playing to Trump’s ego was a daily and embarrassing thing to watch and it was obvious that trying to get the US out of NATO was a Putin inspired wish that Trump tried hard to accomplish. Thank goodness it never happened. Now NATO is stronger than ever and we are one of 30 nations committed to it.

It saddens me to think that so many “Trumpers” are so easily brain washed to believe his lies. How did this happen? We, and frankly all of the democracy loving countries in the world, must join together and find a way to fight this !

I agree with you about Trump and NATO. He was following orders. Biden has pulled the NATO allies together. I hope they keep us out of war.

If that is partially true, maybe Putin was just happy pulling Trump’s strings and having him dance to Putin’s tune. I mean why invade Ukraine when you can control the leader of the USA?

I am so happy Biden has undone the damage to NATO that Trump attempted. Always amazed at those who think Trump and Putin are strong leaders and ignore the brutal factor.

from friend Jan ...

"My guess, for what it is worth, is that Putin did not invade Ukraine while the Rump was in power because he still believed he could get US to help him destroy Ukraine from within… and, he also knew the majority of Americans would be against his war to annex Ukraine and the Rump would most likely mess things up by interfering on the side of Putin and that would backfire on him.

I also think that Putin had to start his war before Ukraine joined NATO… because that was clearly on the horizon, and that would ruin his plans."
