The Time for Us to Blow to Hell Putin’s Murderous Drive Through the Ukraine is Now!

A Commentary by Niagara At Large reporter and publisher Doug Draper

Posted March 2nd, 2022 on Niagara At Large

I’ve been an anti-war  peacenik since my high school days in the 1960s so I have a very hard time saying this.

But I’m going to say it anyway.

I turn on the cable news and look at those aerial shots of that 40-mile-long convoy of Russian tanks and other lethal military equipment on open roads, heading slowly but surely toward Ukraine’s capital of Kyiv and the brave people still there to defend their city and country from the hellish ambitions of a madman and I am thinking; ‘Where are the NATO force’s jet bombers?

Why aren’t the United States, Canada and other members of NATO ordering jets in the air to blow this convoy to smithereens?

There is Putin’s military convoy, right there in plain site. NATO forces could turn it into a pile of burnt flesh and metal now. What are we waiting for? – more of Ukraine’s men, women and children to die? Where do we draw the red line – at a hundred thousand? a million? More? A time will come, sooner or latter, when we will have to intervene with military force anyway.

I have heard over and over again from retired generals and other senior officers familiar with the NATO forces that NTO has enough air power in this region of the world to turn this convoy and all of the Russian military personal manning it into flaming piles of metal and flesh within 10 or 15 minutes.

So why not do it before the military vehicles and those manning it enter Kyiv and disperse through the city’s Ukrainian population where they will be so much harder to pick off without the risk of turning the good people there into collateral damage.

Yes, I’ve heard some of the arguments against NATO forces going in there now. A combination of Ukrainian resistance and sanctions may be enough to defeat Putin in the end, and of most concern, we don’t want to trigger something approaching World War Three with a lunatic who has nuclear bombs.

To which I say didn’t we learn any lessons from history around Hitler and the Nazis?

Earlier on, Hitler and his army marched into Austria and it was; ‘Oh well, maybe that’s it.’  Later he pushed his way into Czechoslovakia and it was; ‘Well, maybe we can still negotiate with him, get him to sign a paper that he won’t do it again. Then he invaded Poland and there began a world war that snuffed out the lives of 100 million people.

Have we not yet learned the lessons of history – that you cannot reason with an murderous monster who is hell bent on paths of destruction anyway?

Have we not even learned the lessons of the school yard – that the only way to finally stop a bully is to punch them so hard that they can’t get off the ground?

So why are NATO countries waiting to use the kind of force that was built to stop evil like Putin in the first place?

Why wait until Putin turns Ukraine into a mass graveyard and moves on to invade Poland or another country that was once curtained off in that old Soviet ‘East Bloc’ he is so obviously hell-bent on rebuilding.

Millions of Russians are reportedly just looking for the right time to take Putin down. So let’s do everything we can to encourage and help them.

There is Putin’s military convoy right out there – a sitting duck in plain sight!.

All NATO leaders have to do is give the orders and blow it to hell. Chances are the Russian people will do the rest. There are plenty of reports to suggest that they are just waiting for the best opportunity to rise up and finish Putin off.

Let’s show this this tyrannical bastard and others with his inclinations how serious we are about defending freedom and democracy around the world.

What do you think?

    I agree with you 100%. They should have gone in long ago. I have relatives in Ukraine and I’m devastated by what is happening.


  2. I apologize in advance for rambling but I have been so upset by the events of the past few weeks that it is difficult to maintain a calm focus.

    I was disturbed by a news report yesterday that Canada was taking a ‘wait and see’ approach to serious sanctions of the Russian oligarches. The reason for the delay was to see what actions our allies took, because said sanctions would have serious financial repercussions for Canadians (although not as serious as spending days in a bunker, with bombs falling, trying to protect your family.)

    I am old and so remember there was a time when Canada would lead on ‘right action’ and let the others follow us (It was said that Canada “punched above our weight”.) After all, Canada joined the second world war immediately after England (and a full two years before the US.) Might there have been a different outcome it we had delayed?

    Your comparison of Putin and Hitler is especially appropriate. Hitler’s blitzkrieg was an attempt to break the spirit of British civilians. It FAILED! Instead they rallied around their country and everyone united and rolled up their sleeves. My mother, an English war bride, lost her home and two of her schools were destroyed by the bombing.

    Ukrainians have responded with incredible courage.

    My hope is that Putin will copy Hitler once more in his final decision!

      I totally agree with you Sue.
      Add to that the threat against Canada. Next door we had a nation ruled by a mini Mussolini. I hope he ends up the same way.
      He has been complicit with Putin for years. Remember him at a photo op pushing only one President out of the way at a NATO summit, the President of Montenegro, a nation that had just joined NATO? Putin had a hit man after him with two assassination attempts. Why did Trump push only him? Putin’s lap dog.
      He also withheld approved military aid from the Ukraine, aid they could really have used, demanding they find dirt on Biden.
      He calls Putin a genius.
      Remember Helsinki? He believed Putin, not his own intelligence agencies.
      Secret meetings with no records.
      Love letters from Kim.
      Openly said he would like to be dictator for life like Xi.
      What more evidence do we need? Pity us if Putin succeeds and “Agent Orange”, Dubious Caesar gets reelected. He might like to take over us. They’re already infiltrating our social media and so called truckers’ protest with @ 70% of their funding from US right wing sources. Don’t forget the Confederate flags and F*** Trudeau signs. Shades of January 6th.
