So we’re refraining from supplying arms to help Ukraine expel Russian invaders, so we can get the murderous Putin’s help in negotiating a nuclear deal with with the equally murderous tyrants in Tehran. Makes sense, huh? Not to me.
Putin’s denials he had nothing to do with the hit on Boris Nemtsov are about as laughable as his denials that the non-uniformed Russian troops in Ukraine aren’t his. He’s not only a liar; he’s a murderer. My guess is that Nemtsov’s “girlfriend” was involved, too. She fingered him. How many professional assassins leave a potential eyewitness unharmed? How could the assassin possibly know where Nemtsov would be without the girl’s help? She apparently said taking a stroll on the open bridge was Nemtsov’s idea, but of course she would. She led him to his death. It may have been a honey trap all along, and all ex-KGB Putin’s idea.
So these are the people we’re dealing with. Murders in Moscow, terrorists in Iran. And we’re making deals with them? How about no deals with anybody we can’t possibly rely on. Use crushing sanctions on them both. Putin has already taken Crimea, is in the process of taking eastern Ukraine, and will shortly set his sights on Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia. What are we going to do then? And all this is encouraging China to make its move on Taiwan. What do they have to fear from this President? Nothing.
I’m not suggesting boots on the ground, but crushing and relentless sanctions on both Russia and Iran to force regime change. In addition, in the case of Iran, let the Jews bombs the bejesus out of them. Prime Minister Netanyahu all but promised just that if we would finally see our enemies for who they are.
One final thought: the pending “agreement” with Iran is an arms control TREATY, just the ones we did with the old USSR, and must be ratified by the Senate. Period. And, thank God, the deal under consideration will never be ratified.
