If Russian President Vladimir Putin has anything to say about it, the conflict in Ukraine is not only just the start of Russia’s climb to global power but the tipping point for the fall of the US. Speaking to lawmakers back in Russia, Putin did not mince words when it came to his feelings about the situation across the globe.
“They should have realized that they have already lost from the very beginning of our special military operation. Its beginning also means the beginning of a radical breakdown of the American world order. This is the beginning of the transition from liberal-globalist American egocentrism to a truly multipolar world… The so-called collective West, led by the United States, has been extremely aggressive towards Russia for decades.” In his opinion as well as the opinion of others in attendance, this transition “cannot be stopped.”
While the mental gymnastics of Putin to blame the US for the problems across the globe is done at a level only a sociopath could truly understand, when he chose to blame the US for the conflict in Ukraine, that’s where he starts proving how much like Biden he is becoming. As sleepy Joe has the cheese slipping off his cracker, the berries have slipped off Vladimir’s blini.
While watching world leaders try to find the reasons to blame one another can be utterly enjoyable under the right circumstances, under the wrong ones it’s just embarrassing. His further doubling down on blaming the US for everything is what took the cake though. “It was unleashed by this very collective West, organizing, and then supporting an unconstitutional armed coup in Ukraine in 2014, and then encouraging and justifying genocide against people in Donbas… Everyone should know that, by and large, we haven’t started anything yet in earnest.”
A push to transfer blame like this is not too surprising for Putin or Russia as a whole. Given his new developments in weapons testing and his continued deals with parts of Europe despite the sanctions, he feels like he has nowhere to go but up, and if he can bulldog the US into looking weak in the process, then all the better.
However, he has quickly forgotten the lessons learned in blood by his own military. The farmers in Ukraine were ready for a fight. Even with minimal arms at best, and little to no training, they still devastated the Special Forces Putin sent in at the start of the conflict. These Ukrainians were fighting for their land from a nation that has been known for trying to invade and take over Ukraine. They used meager weapons, and it took time for the leadership in Ukraine to properly arm their civilians to help with the fight.
In the US, we don’t have such problems. As much as the left loves to applaud those farmers for fighting back, they don’t want US civilians to have firearms. Never mind how useful they could prove themselves to be in the event of a ground attack from Russia or any other force. Despite the best efforts of the left though, much like in Ukraine those farmers and country boys here in the US are armed.
Unlike in Ukraine though, they are very well trained, and often have generations of Veterans who live in one area. These groups hunt, fish, and train together. They know how to communicate without saying a word when the big buck is getting close. Having that shill makes them 10x more dangerous than Ukrainian farmers, so let him come try to end the “American World Order”. He has no clue what is hiding behind those palm trees, boulders, corn stalks, or taxi cabs; but we do.
