caterpillar tracks loaded onto railway trucks shareholders cash in
n.b. As we move closer to open conflict between Russia and “The West” I attended a party recently at which there was open talk about moving savings intoarms manufacturing shares and disappointment expressedat missing out on buying stock in an American armament corporation. Ironically, it was at a wake.
There was also talk of fear of direct war with Russia...as opposed to what? A proxy war that sacrifices the very last Ukrainian?
evacuate call cruel deceit of remaining victims who'll be blamed
n.b. A call to Moscow to help evacuate Donbas as Ukraine’s army advances, means the area will only be lived in by people who wanted to stay in their homes, but they risk being called Ukrainian patriots and therefore “enemy” to the recently retreated occupiers. Victim blaming being set up, like an idiot’s chess move.
they still have enough cowards to push the buttons heroes would refuse
n.b. Resistance to conscription in Russia is an act of great courage. For Russians facing the press gang, “Do you have a plan? Run; Hide; Fight,”
Which is what public notices in US railway stations advise in case an act of domestic terrorism develops where the public gather. I understand that this is advice in other public buildings too, particularly schools.
Of course, the press gang was once how the British Royal Navy recruited when a ship was low on matelots. Able bodied boys and men were simply dragged off the streets of the island’s ports “to serve” the King and country.
Ukraine’s war of independence is now being fought on two sides of the border. It is a Vietnam, with Russian domestic resistance to an unjust war being as critical to the outcome as draft card burning youths were in the early 1970s, when flowers were bravely placed in gun barrels. Resistance is not futile.
