    Essay by Georgian journalist Natalia Antelava about how the West enabled Putin for the past decades by ignoring and excusing his excesses. There’s plenty enough blame to go around.

    Why did it take the West so long to wake up to Putin’s outrages?

    This terrifying, world-changing conflict in Ukraine did not start in 2022. Nor did it start in 2014. It began a decade and a half ago when Russia invaded Georgia and got away with it.

    “Remember the red button?” a friend texted when the first Russian bombs fell on Kyiv. In the region that has been colonized and tormented by Russia for centuries, everyone remembers the red “reset” button: the gift of an illusory fresh start that Hillary Clinton presented to the Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov during their meeting in Geneva 2009.

    Many of us, including me, didn’t think Putin would launch an invasion of this scale against Ukraine. Millions of us — Ukrainians, Moldovans, Georgians, Syrians, Armenians and Azeris — have all participated in dress rehearsals for the horror show that the Kremlin has now unleashed. And we know that it did not have to come to this.

    The playbook Putin has been using to rebuild his empire was always rudimentary. The supposed antagonists were always an oppressed population and a “fascist” government backed by the United States.

    In Georgia in 2008, Putin’s soldiers had dirty boots and rusty tanks, but he first tested his now infamous cyber attacks. He got away with it.

    By the time Russian troops arrived in Crimea six years later, they had shiny new boots and new uniforms modeled on US special forces. And Putin, fresh after his Olympics triumph in Sochi, was more confident than ever. He lied at a scale we had never seen before, telling the world that Russian soldiers were not Russian soldiers , and then he annexed Crimea. He got away with it.

    Then came Donbas and Syria, interference in the US elections, the Salisbury killings and the Navalny poisoning. And each time he got away with murder, we met a new Putin — more brutal at home and more audacious abroad.

    The United States and Europe spent millions countering Russian disinformation. But debunking his propaganda was not enough to counter the narratives Putin had pushed using powerful, multi-million dollar media networks that he kept building, at home and abroad.

    This network, which included big names like RT and Sputnik, but also hundreds of small websites and social media channels, tapped masterfully into existing fears and legitimate grievances of each audience they addressed.

    He turned LGBTQ+ rights into a frontline of his domestic attack on the West, telling traditional Russians and their neighbors that their families and their values were under threat. It worked.

    Eventually this family values narrative caught up in the West, turning Putin into an unexpected hero for the far right. Authoritarian populists all around the world were suddenly reaching out for help: Kremlin-funded Sputnik was training state media workers from Georgia to the Philippines and India and by 2020, Brazilian president Bolsonaro was repeating a myth about a supposed Western plot to legalize pedophilia that I first heard on the Russian state TV back in 2012.

      Even after the invasion of Ukraine, which the president has condemned, the United States has continued to buy around 500,000 barrels of Russian oil per day.

      Bwaha! Lolgf https://www.thepiratescove.us/wp-content/plugins/wp-monalisa/icons/wpml_cool.gif

      • Elwood P. Dowd says:

        Is the brilliant ShitLips now advocating that the US government nationalize
        the oil companies? NuConnie patriots are big on wanting the gov’t to take over private businesses.

        Crude oil refiners started relying more on Russian crude when the US govt blocked the import of Venezuelan crude in 2019. At the same time OPEC cut their output.

        U.S. imports from Russia averaged 538,000 barrels a day in 2020. Damn you Biden!!

    You and the other commies empowered Putin by giving him the impression that he could pick and manipulate our president. Despite the fact Trump hand nothing to do with the Russians, the idiot left gave the world the impression there was enough power in Putin to promote Trump. Yet, Trump was the only leader with enough insight and strength to take on Putin and company. Great job ass hole, Biden and his buddies then finished us off by his dementia and corruption.

    New York state officials found the effectiveness of Pfizer’s vaccine against Covid infection plummeted from 68% to 12% for children aged 5 to 11 during the omicron surge.
    The dramatic drop in vaccine effectiveness was likely due to the lower dosage the youngsters received, according to study team members.

    Yeah, that’s it, we didn’t give them enough.

    This week FL has 400% more covid deaths than NY both have similar sized populations. Unvaccinated are 15 times more likely to die of covid than vaccinated
    Mandates are being relaxed because more Republicans are dying.

    Fully vaccinated people 93% less likely to die from covid
    Yeah!!! Relax the mandates

    • Jl says:

      And as shown, they have almost the same total deaths, bong man. Florida was open, New York was not. Looks like open wins,,

    QAnoners side with Putin, ascribing the Moscow Madman’s brutal invasion of Ukraine to be a just attack to eliminate the Democratic and democratic pedophile cabal that rules the world. Putin and trump together will finish the job of destroying the pedophile ring. Save the world!!

    QAnon John calls the invasion “a proper, and NECESSARY deep cleaning of Cabal operations and military assets” and that “the Cabal will be exposed in Ukraine and it will be one of the last pieces of the Plan.”

    “The Cabal” is the global cannibalistic pedophile ring, the one ring that rules us all. Putin is continuing trump’s fine work that was interrupted by The Cabal’s stealing of the election!! trump will be reinstated to his throne once Putin breaks the back of The Cabal.

    This explains Marjorie Gazpacho Greene (Q-Russia).

    Republicun Lowrent Boebert (R-Crazytown) heckled President Biden when he was starting to talk about his dead son, Major Beau Biden. Stay classy Republicuns, stay classy. Didn’t Lowrent poison some 80 customers?

    • Facts Matter says:

      Stay classy Republicuns, stay classy………. Didn’t Lowrent poison some 80 customers? AS NANCY PELOSI TEARS UP DONALD TRUMPS SPEECH ON NATIONAL TV…Stay classy DEMOCRATS.

      This. Dowd is demented. He can’t remember what the first part of his sentence said as he writes the second part.

      Republicun Lowrent Boebert (R-Crazytown) See my above analysis.

      Both Boebert, 35, and Greene, 47, both yelled out “build a wall,” referring to former President Donald Trump’s calls to construct a wall across the US southern border when Biden referred to securing the border and reforming immigration law.

      Yeah. We will defend The corrupt Ukrainians who fed Joe and Hunter Biden with millions in corrupt money but won’t defend Americans against the mass murders being waged on Blacks vs Blacks. Won’t defend the USA against Antifa, but will arrest MOMS who want their sons and daughters to be taught Math, and English and History and Not that their children are wretched racist bitches.

      Yeah, Biden and the left will defend anyone and everyone except Americans. Let those Child rapists, criminals, gang members, drug lords, thieves, thugs and lunatics swarm into America. Fly them, first class, to cities where Blacks are struggling to survive.

      Yeah. Is it any wonder why the USA after 20 damn years of wars in the Middle East is NOT the least bit interested in a EUROPEAN PROBLEM?

      • Elwood P. Dowd says:

        You should have listened to the speech. Or have someone read the transcript to you. Republicuns Boebert and Greene need to be taught manners. Perhaps their embarrassed voters will do the job.

    Sen Manchin (DINO-WV) is wrong

    Had to move it down here, because the thread has reached its limit.

    Senator Manchin is, of course, representing his constituents in the Mountain State, constituents who gave Donald Trump his widest margin in 2016, and second strongest margin in 2020, constituents who have elected Republicans to every other statewide office in West Virginia, and who re-elected the incumbent Democrat senator by a fairly small margin in 2018, 49.57% to 46.26%.

    Senator Manchin achieved his first elective office in 1982, becoming a member of the state House of Delegates. No one would have thought him anything other than a Democrat in 1982, because he was very much in the mainstream of the Democratic Party in West Virginia at the time, because the Democrats of 1982 weren’t all stupid ‘progressives.’ Former Democrat Ronald Reagan had said just a few years earlier that he hadn’t left the Democratic Party; the Democratic Party had left him.

    Democrats used to be at least somewhat sensible, but not anymore. Now you have the spectacle of squadrista Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez combitching that the State of the Union address didn’t provide any “path to citizenship” for 10 to 13 immigrants in the United States. If those immigrants were here legally, they’d have a path to citizenship; it’s only the criminals who do not.

    Senator Manchin is a, sadly nearly only, representative of the Democratic Party of the 1970s and 80s, a party which was slightly more liberal than the Republicans but which was still concerned with American citizens and actually being American.

    The Bluegrass State had the last state legislative chamber, the state House of Representatives, controlled by Democrats, until they were unseated in the 2016 elections. They were moderate to conservative Democrats, able to appeal to the moderate to conservative Kentuckians in the rural counties. The stupidity of the Obama Administration, and the candidacy of the odious Hillary Clinton, finally convinced Kentuckians that it didn’t matter how moderate their local Democrats were, voting for them was enabling the Democratic Party nationwide. It wasn’t that the Democrats were slowly losing seats; the Democrats held a 53-47 advantage before the elections, while the GOP held a 63-37 majority after the votes were counted. That was a huge change!

    Remember Kim Davis, the Rowan County Clerk who was eventually forced out because she refused to grant a ‘marriage’ license to two men males? She was elected as a Democrat, back when Democrats had some sense.

    Democrats in Kentucky and West Virginia are still mostly moderates, or at least pretend to be. Amy McGrath Henderson, who ran for the Sixth District congressional seat said she was a moderate, but she was caught on tape, at a fund-raiser in Massachusetts, telling potential donors, “I am further left, I am more progressive, than anybody in the state of Kentucky.” Mrs Henderson remains a private citizen today.

    Democrats have allowed the lowest form of human, communists, to take over their party. dOwd is an example of how easily lead they are from a “normal” patriotic Democrat to a subversive commie sympathizer. Give them no quarter. They have left the Union just as their slave-driving ancestors did albeit so far limited shooting. A Congressman here and unarmed mother of two their. In fact todays Democrats bear no resemblance to those of even the 1990’s. Just by reading dOwds comments one can see how they have devolved into the 7th circle of hell since then. They are always on the wrong side of everything, refuse even to discuss anything let alone compromise and have the honor, compassion and cruelty of Attila the Hun. And they never, ever accept responsibility or apologize for what they do.

    Most of the crap dOwd spits out here is so damn bad it’s not even wrong. It’s incredulous.

    And Brandon’s SOTU? The mumbling fool. The Brandon SOTU: The world laughs, America just weeps. Even Jill cringed, then thought about that $90,000 tea set she just ordered for entertaining Communists in the Rose Garden, and she laughed. At We The People.

    Let’s go Brandon, more lies, more corruption, more inflation. Why are the worst Democrat presidents referred to by their initials: FDR then JFK then LBJ now FJB?
