Putin The Cornered Rat
I am just hoping enough people see the insight given by Putin when he told the story of his experience with a cornered rat in the building where he lived when he was still just a boy. I hope so because, examining his actions right up to today, you can see he is using exactly the behavior of a rat cornered and unable to escape being crushed under foot.
This bespeaks Putin’s inner determination to use whatever form of violence can be mustered (and he is certainly mustering massive brute force).
It’s the newest escalation of brutal force being used against unarmed and helpless people in the Ukraine that triggered me on this. Today we saw reports of Putin’s missile and artillery attacks on a music school sheltering civilians. Hitler could not target London bomb shelters but would have if he could. This is another “first” Vladimir Putin can be known for (and hopefully prosecuted for). In addition we saw his first use of hypersonic missiles he’s been bragging about since Donald Trump was president. You see here he is showing just how bat shit crazy he really is because he’s clearly indicating that tactical nukes will be his next choice of weapons.
Overall this makes more clear Putin’s deranged devotion to the Cornered Rat Strategy he loves so much.
If this suggests I’m urging increased activity to take Putin down from behind, just look at what Ukrainian President said to Western Leaders today. He said, “Sanctions, humanitarian support, political support, finances, everything you need to keep the peace and quickly save the world, to save lives.”
Putin himself cornered all his top officials when he presented his plan to invade the Ukraine. He forced every one of them in turn to say aloud, “I support the plan to invade the Ukraine.” This was video captured and used in a new Oliver Stone documentary, “Ukraine On Fire.” No one can force anyone to accept in their own minds that which they don’t believe and oppose. All Putin did was to increase the number of people behind him who are now more likely to see that removing Putin is an urgent necessity for their own sakes and the sake of the people of the world.
Putin must at least sense this and that’s why he’s rushed to use hypersonic missiles against unarmed Ukrainian civilians. He’s rushing to conclude his conquering of the Ukraine in the hope of preventing anyone from preventing his continued dominance of the West. His only more violent tool is tactical nuclear weapons which he will be using against at least one Ukrainian city. Most likely he will use one against the currently more decimated cities of Mariupol or Kharkiv. That’s it. All we have to do is wait to see it happening.
