So, I guess mankind won’t have to worry about climate change after all: the nukes will destroy modern civilization before extreme weather events do.
In case you missed it: While Russia’s Vladimir Putin has been acting out on the world stage in his bid to exterminate Ukrainians, the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) issued its starkest warning yet this week. Climate change is happening much quicker than previously thought, and its effects will be devastating for humans over the next 20 years.
I wish we had another 20 years, but somehow a madman has been allowed to bully the human race into nuclear oblivion. It boggles the mind how this has been allowed to happen. But quite frankly, Vladimir Putin is only one of many people preaching hate and destruction these days in every corner of the world.
If there really were a God, you gotta think It is considering another global flood. But then again, that might not be effective enough. Rich people could ride out a flood on their yachts and ships. No, a nuclear war would be more effective at this point.
Not that Putin is an instrument of God, if there were a God. If we go down that rabbit hole, he is undoubtedly the devil.
And then there is COVID-19. All kinds of right-wing haters have jumped onto the truckers’ anti-vaccine protests to put forward their agendas — which all, curiously, want to overthrow democratic governments. They’d prefer Putin? Probably. I felt from the start that Russia was behind the rise of the extreme right around the world, in lockstep with former U.S. president Donald Trump.
No doubt, Putin sees himself as some sort of world ruler. But as we are seeing in Ukraine, people would rather die than live under such a pig. Ditto for Canada, the U.S. and free democratic countries all over the world.
So, let your nukes fly, Putin. And we’ll let ours fly.
The planet will eventually recover without the human race, and then it will be as if we never existed at all.
P.S. Coming soon: Why Donald Trump and so many other men despise Justin Trudeau. Hint: They’re jealous of him.
I’m an optimist. Thats not a popular or even comprehend able position to take these days but I’m an optimist all the same.
I also don’t do any god in any way, shape , form or incarnation. That’s also a very unpopular position to hold.
Between the imagined reality of Jill’s immediate thoughts for mankind on the earth and my wishful optimistic view for mankind, is a viable, probable reality .
I do believe in the basic good of man along with the honour and dignity we all have the ability to possess .
Throw my vision together with Jill’s , temper it with a little bit of someones god
and we end up with a reality.
I think we all want to live in peace, harmomy and want to be respected without being oppressed.
I think we are all willing to take risks for that to happen.
For me, that means not bowing to Putins threats and bullying. If he lets his nukes out … simply stupid as that is, I would agree to let ours fly manifold times in retaliation.
It’d be a disaster but ultimately worth our freedom, dignity and honour for those that would be left with.
Our species is tough… we ‘ll survive in some way!!!
Did my last comment get posted? I have always had problems with WordPress.
My comment was:
If Putin orders a nuclear launch, I fully expect someone close to him to deliver a Caesarean solution.
Your previous comment was posted, Steve.
I would reply with drones attacking their launch and control facilities, then give them a few hours to deliver the aforementioned Caesarian solution. If that doesn’t happen, then reply with conventional weapons. We should be able to take out their military capabilities pretty fast with minimal loss of civilian life.
Replying with our nukes would be the doomsday scenario that no one wants.
Trump was a “useful idiot” to Putin. Trump tried for four years to weaken or dismantle NATO for daddy Putin. This is why he wanted Trump to win in 2020. Taking Ukraine would have been easy if Trump had won. Crimea was just practice to measure the response of the rest of the world.
If Putin orders a nuclear strike, I would fully expect a Caesarean solution to the problem.
