"For God’s sake, this man cannot remain in power."
That's what all this wringing of hands and backpedaling is all about. From Blinken on down, to the Senate and House, everyone is in a race with each other to put the kibosh on regime change in Russia and they're all dead wrong.
You see, Joe spoke from his heart and was backed up by his intelligence, instincts and yes, dare forbid, his emotions. He knows too well that Putin is, at the very least, the devil incarnate and therefore has to be taken on full bore.
Biden is smart enough to recognize that with a demon seed, a wider war with NATO is almost inevitable. So...NATO, the EU and others can fight Putin now, or likely inevitably fight him later.
In Foreign Policy 101, you learn that when you fill the geopolitical bottle with water, sooner or later it overflows. In the Ukraine context, that means steady filling by Ukraine's allies with ever increasing supplies of weapons of sophistication -- we all already KNOW how Putin will ultimately respond, he will attack NATO, period as he can stomach our reinforcement and resupply in Ukraine for only so long.
Joe instinctively knows that and so in his mind, it's a calculus of fighting Putin now or taking him on later. But either way, we will be at war with Russia in the final analysis.
And the other major humanitarian implication screams out for general mobilization across NATO right now. It's known as the Ukrainian government and people. With each passing day, more and more innocent civilians die. At what point does that number become unacceptable for NATO and worthy of military intervention? Exactly.
The Demon Seed cares not for civilian homes, hospitals, seniors' residences, schools, day-care centers, etc. Putin and his inner circle need to be defeated yesterday so they can collectively be on their way to The Hague for trial and punishment for their crimes against humanity and war crimes, period. Surely, this is one ICC dossier that the United States and every other civilization nation can rally around?
As Joe said from the heart, human decency is crying out for the saving of Ukraine. Don't disappoint The Almighty and don't ignore your collective humanity if you're in high positions of power in the United States, NATO, the EU and other allied countries.
Don't make the same mistake Obama made in Syria. This red-line needs to be defined now and tanks, fighters and bombers need to be in Ukraine as soon as possible. Then Ukrainians can take the war to Russia, so they can fittingly experience exactly what they have put Ukraine through. In French, we call it donner donnant.

On Ukraine, the democratic world needs World War III and we need it YESTERDAY. This is a war against the devil incarnate so we really only have two legitimate choices: NATO, the EU and others can fight Putin now or absolutely be drawn in further down the road after hundreds of thousands of civilians will have been massacred. It's long overdue for the rubber to hit the road.
The United States got in late in WW I & WW II...what would have happened to the Free World but for Pearl Harbor? Exactly.
In short, it's up to BOJO to become Churchill. The UK must get in now, along with the Commonwealth and that will force the Americans' hand. FINALLY. Once the UK is in, the other self-respecting democracies will get in and Putin will be one hell of a lot closer to meeting the noose in The Hague.

This is Biden's latest position and it's, for lack of a more definitive word, G-A-R-B-A-G-E.
What the fuck are Biden and the others waiting for? 50 million dead? My God, how can our leaders have such stupid blinders on and not be willing to immediately take on the Anti-Christ's latest representative on Earth?
NATO and the West need to get that demonic bastard now, not later. Waiting amounts to indirect appeasement à la Chamberlain when all of us already know that Ukraine is only stop one, think Georgia and Moldova next.
This narcissistic psychopath-sociopath will also take on former Soviet republics that are now NATO members, so collectively get that in your heads now.
Prepare for general mobilization and do it yesterday.
This party needs a leader with a long track record. That person also has to be intimately familiar with every aspect of the party and its positions. That person has to have a proven record of dedicated service to the party and Conservative governments, post 2003.
Jean Charest says he's a Conservative. Then let him produce his membership information for all to see. If he's been discreetly all in since 2003, then great. If not, then stop pretending. He better not be a Johnny-Come-Lately nor another Erin O'Toole -- who's one thing while in the PCPC, another while premier and finally a third incarnation while running for the CPC leadership.
It brings me back to Clark's remark about Orchard about being a tourist in the [legacy] party. Could Charest win a general election? Sure he could. But the membership is calling the shots in this race and they will go for the genuine article. That's why if Charest isn't 100% authentic, he and his people might as well simply stay home.
Like I said before, watch Harper's cabinet ministers. They will show the way to a considerable extent. For Charest to win, he needs at least a plurality of ministers. But where the rubber really hits the road is whether he can actually do that. Colour yours truly skeptical at best.

Oh my God, what a disaster in the making: this leadership race is shaping up with the potential not only to fracture the party but could also ultimately destroy it.
Yes, it's that serious. It's all about polarization, attacks on the other and a refusal to come together on policy, not to mention a leader.
Just look how Poilievre and Byrne are playbooking it: Charest, the devil incarnate, who has no history with or loyalty to this party, coming in and it's takeover time.
At the other end, Charest, yes, a veritable tourist in this party with a strong sense of entitlement for a guy who's never been a member.
Like I said before, what a disaster. There's no middle ground for anyone to safely occupy and talk of Harper not being neutral. I hope that's not true as it would only make matters much worse.
So, Charest now will announce on Thursday and he's already sealing the deal: first with Brown and now Tasha. Some are crying about an attempted fix almost already being in.
So, expect a battle with elbows up and chips that fall where they may.
Meanwhile, the Trudeau Liberals are happier than a pig in shit watching us make complete fools of ourselves.
Ours is now a party only about self. Just another Trudeau party. No bold vision for Canada, no economic remedies, no course to chart for the future. All that remains is a war of entitlement and absolutely no consensus on either candidate, or future direction for the party and the country.
Like I said, it simply can't get any worse.

Each of you is sentient, you see what's going on in Ukraine day after miserable day. So, ask yourselves this question: the Ukrainian President and Foreign Minister have it exactly right, just how much suffering and death are NATO members willing to let the Ukrainians endure?
You need to get out of that mindset that you are a defensive alliance. People are dying right across from your borders. You can't do nothing and fortunately, you and the EU are not doing nothing but remember that by not doing nothing, you invite an almost inevitable attack on at least a NATO member in eventual retaliation. Put another way, Russian attacks outside Ukraine are both predictable and likely.
With that in mind, you can join the fight now and limit the bloodshed, not to mention shorten the time to victory for Ukraine or you can do it later, when there are no legal niceties available to keep you out of World War III.
Hitler went into parts and then all of Czechoslovakia. The West was foolishly in solely reactive mode and did nothing until he invaded Poland. And surprise, surprise, NATO is still as cowardly now as the West was then. Make no mistake, when Putin inevitably attacks NATO, it will be war writ large. Better to fight for the good right now than to wait and do it later when circumstances on the ground effectively mean you have no other choice.
The world is watching and seeing how the Ukrainians are defending their country with far more success than anyone thought. This invasion is transforming before our eyes into a guerilla war and that is never to the advantage of the aggressor.
That's when the invading army gets bogged down, worn away and ultimately cut from their supply lines. In short, without supplies -- especially fuel -- an advancing army can no longer advance.
Add to that the fact that Putin is a lousy military strategist. He's more in the mould of Hitler and that isn't good for troop morale, especially given the fact that perhaps only 30% of the invading force are not conscripts doing their one-year mandatory military service. That puts the writing on the wall.
Putin is stuck with lousy options in this war: he can go full force and nuke countries but that's a suicidal strategy and he knows that. Sure, Russia like the United States, the UK and France have a sub-based part of a nuclear triad but no one's subs are less detectable than those of America. So, that means in a nuclear exchange, American forces would launch such a wide ranging retaliatory strike that Russia would quite literally be at risk of incineration. So, that's an empty threat at best.
Then comes his declaration that any country that enforces a no-fly zone will be considered an active wartime participant. No kidding. For now, a no-fly zone remains off the table but ultimately will come into being after Russia takes action to quell the steady incoming flow of Stingers, Javelins and other defensive weapons. In short, Poland now has a big X on her back and sooner rather than later, Putin will directly take on NATO and that will inevitably mean one thing: at least the political end of Vladimir Putin. That will be followed by what most offensive forces never think about: war crimes trials and the meting out of punishment.
Like I said on the top, Putin is losing and will one day pay the consequences.
