Can you see what’s going on? The Russians are creating a buffer zone along their western perimeter. Why are they doing that? What benefit do they derive from a buffer zone?
Well, a buffer zone creates a distance between Russia and Ukraine which Putin thinks is necessary since Ukraine threatened to revive his country’s nuclear arsenal, moved troops to Donbas/Lugansk borders, and promised to join NATO. So, the Russian president is creating his own DMZ on his western flank.
But what does that prove? It proves that we’ve been lied to from the very beginning. Putin was not planning to reconstruct the Soviet Empire as the media told us. He never had any intentions of seizing the Ukrainian capital Kiev. And he stated quite clearly from the beginning that he had no intention of liberating and securing other than the beleaguered Donbas and Lugansk regions. He did not want to conquer the entire Ukrainian landmass. That was all baloney.
What he wanted to do, is what he has done. Look at the map. You don’t need BBC, ITV, mainstream red tops or CNN or Rachel Maddow to tell you what you can see with your own two eyes. This is the reality ‘on the ground’.
This is a buffer zone. It creates a distance between Russia and Ukraine, it protects ethnic Russians in the historically Russian region of Donbas/Lugansk region, and it establishes a land bridge to Crimea where Russia’s vital deep-water port of Sevastopol is located. In other words, it achieves what Putin wanted to achieve from the very beginning, that is, enhanced security along his western border.
What we are seeing is the basic parameters of Russia’s Special Military Operation. Yes, many people will prefer to call it a war, but the term is not nearly as precise as Special Military Operation.
Why? Because Special Military Operation indicates that the main objective is to save the lives of the ethnic Russians who had been under constant bombardment for the last eight years that caused the deaths of 14,000 mostly civilians, women and children, the innocent and the aged shelled daily by the Ukrainian Army and ultra-nationalists.
The intention was to also create a security zone that prevents a hostile NATO army and its missile system from being deployed to Russia’s border. These are the goals of the Special Military Operation; to demilitarize and remove the demonstrably Russophobe ultra-nationalists.
Will the Special Military Operation go beyond the Donbas to Kiev and cities in the west? No: Going beyond the Donbas would likely involve an increase in mobilization of men and resources which has not yet taken place in Russia. By not mobilizing, Putin is signalling to the west that he will limit his operation to the area on the map, with possibly some slight expansion to ensure secure borders.
Putin is indicating that his main concern is security, and since his concerns were casually brushed aside by Biden, Boris Johnson (an American born US passport-holding citizen) and Israeli citizen Volodymyr Zelensky, he took matters into his own hands. In other words, the Russian president imposed his own settlement.
Okay, but if these are the parameters of the Special Military Operation, then what are the chances of a wider war? That depends on Biden. If Washington and Westminster continue on the path of escalation by sending weapons systems that can strike targets in Russia, then Putin will respond.
We should know that by now. Putin is not going to back down no matter what. If Washington and Westminster – on the same page – want to up the ante, then they should prepare for an equal response. That’s the way it’s going to work. For now, the Special Military Operation is just a Special Military Operation. But when it becomes a war, then all bets are off. Then we will see a full mobilisation, a complete rupture in US-Russo relations, and a halt to all hydrocarbon flows from east to west.
Do you think Europe and the United States are prepared for that? Do you think the EU can replace the 25% of the oil and 40% of all the natural gas it presently imports from Russia? Do you have a wind-powered car that will get you to work on time or a factory that will run on solar power? Do you have a plan for heating your house with hydrogen or perhaps a battery from an old Prius?
No, you don’t, and neither does Europe. Europe runs on fossil fuels. America runs on fossil fuels and the more fossil fuel that is consumed, the more the economy grows. The less fossil fuel is consumed, the more the economy shrinks. Are you prepared for life in a shrinking economy with high unemployment, skyrocketing inflation, unending recession, and deepening social malaise brought on by your government’s misguided desire to “stick it to Putin”?
That’s a bad choice, isn’t it? Especially when a face-saving deal can be made at any time. In fact, Biden could stop the fighting tomorrow if he declared that, yes, Ukraine will accept neutrality till the end of time and NATO expansion will stop right where it is. That’s all it would take. Just extend the olive branch and Putin will ‘call off the dogs. Guaranteed.
That’s what Donald Trump would have done. Remember him? Remember ‘how bad things were’ when Trump was in office and gas was just $2 a gallon, everyone had a job, there was no inflation, and violent crime was under control?

Listen to what Trump had to say about Russia: “Well, I hope we do have good relations with Russia. I say it loud and clear and I’ve been saying it for years. I think it’s a good thing if we have a great relationship with Russia. That’s very important. And, I believe, someday that will happen. It’s a big country, it’s a nuclear country, it’s a country we should get along with, and I think we will eventually get along with Russia.” Source
