Before we peer into the future, we should look first at the consequences of the past.


And learn from our mistakes, the negative patterns and practices, conflicts and wars, in order to not repeat them.


Some 75 million people died in World War II as a direct result of the Nazis and Axis aggression targeting not just 6 million Jewish people, but also “2.7 million ethnic Poles, and 4 million others who were deemed “unworthy of life” (including the disabled and mentally ill, Soviet prisoners of war, homosexuals, Freemasons, Jehovah’s Witnesses, and Romani) as part of a program of deliberate extermination”*


In addition,  “40 million civilians died because of deliberate genocide, massacres, mass-bombings, disease, and starvation.”  Many of the civilian deaths included mass bombing of Caucasians and other groups living in Warsaw, Rotterdam and London.  


There was no distinction between civilians, military or those supporting Nazi Germany outside Germany as all were targeted in indiscriminate mass bombings and massacres.  


From the ashes of the mass crimes against humanity perpetrated by the Nazis, the Geneva Convention of 1949 established international laws governing rules of engagement, rights of non-combatants and humanitarian treatment in war.  


Now Russian aggressors are repeating the crimes against humanity from the Nazis of the past in flagrant violation of the Geneva Convention targeting civilians in indiscriminate mass-bombings of schools, hospitals and homes where there are no military targets causing thousands of deaths of innocent children and civilians.  


In addition, Russian propaganda and hacking targeting the West blanket the world in lies whitewashing mass crimes against humanity.  


These crimes against humanity include the deliberate spread of misinformation from COVID-19 to the exaggerated dangers of vaccines designed to protect against contagions and disease causing the deaths of millions of people around the world including of 1.2 million people in the United States.  


Other crimes against humanity include the incitement of hate and fear of minorities and immigrants, lewd conduct and sexual abuse against women and grooming into compromised behaviors in order to control and destabilize the United States and the West and further Russian aggression and propaganda.  


The lack of defense against such aggressions only undermines the ability of the United States and the West to defend against incursions and aggressions made against the West and humanity by Putin’s Russia.  


Knowing the crimes against humanity perpetrated and instigated by Russian aggression and still not defend and protect the Republic, Ukraine and humanity from harm is unconscionable, unholy and unlawful.  


There is no future of freedom and security if these freedoms and securities are under constant threat and attack and dangers go unchecked and undefended.


Our duty is to the Republic for which it stands and humanity, not to traitors and Judases of humanity under Putin’s thumb and control.


Those not vigorously defending the Republic, the West, Ukraine and humanity must not reap its rewards, but held to its highest count of accountability.  


In order to have a future in prosperity and peace, we must maintain the rules of engagement and conduct in ethical rules of law.  


And check those in corruption and treason perpetrating crimes against humanity and selling out to Putin’s Russia hell bent on bleeding the world dry and destroying humanity, the West and America.
