It isn’t even a real word! Your making stuff up now?!

Seize and destroy all Syrian weapons. Take silverware and issue out plastic. Get these zones safe so that the good Syrian people can be returned from all over the world to their homeland by the end of this year! Maybe we can best show our love by taking these immediate steps to save the good people still remaining. All migrants, all refugees, returned. Even those from other countries could help rebuild, and together, by common bonds, could work for an everlasting peace. Money well spend, and other countries could invest in this.

It seems that Putin is determined to cause so much pain and suffering that the regime opponents will give up ans sue for peace with amnesty. The current status quo is fierce fighting and then a cease fire for “humanitarian intervention” followed by another round of killing repeated ad nausium.

The fact that Putin’s Russia has seen fit to threaten NATO with troops exercises and military buildup near the borders of many of its member states has hardly had a calming influence on the blood pressure of the vast majority of people who live in those countries. I ask you as a dutiful stenographer of the Putinist regime: What would you want the leader of your national government to do if a proven aggressive militaristic country was posturing ever closer to your countries ?

The fact that NATO (USA) has seen fit to encircle Russia with missile stations, troops and heavy weapons has hardly had a calming influence on Putin’s blood pressure. I ask all these Putin critics “what would you want the leader of your national government to do if a proven aggressive military pact was posturing ever closer to your country?”
