Ukraine no fly zone: Insanity of the First Magnitude

While out here trying to do my bit against the Kremlin’s re-incarnation of September 1, 1939…It’s important to raise concerns about some of the apocalyptic Moscow-fighting ideas that are getting put on the table in the excitement. It’s shocking my fellow Kremlin foes are advocating a U.S. led no-fly zone over Ukraine. This is a move which has perhaps 10 percent chance of ending civilization as we know it, since it would require direct, large-scale combat between the U.S. and Russia…inside Russia!

The real solution is deadly but a lot less deadly: Peaceable civil resistance inside Russia, at the discretion of Russians. Guerilla war and civil resistance inside Ukraine, funded, peopled and supplied from across the globe. The Kremlin can be beaten, but it has to be without direct conflict between the two top nuclear powers. This is a long established and proven concept; it’s already been done once in much tougher circumstances. Ideally it should happen at private rather than taxpayer expense, definitely without foreign military presence; each of us does need to do our bit without waiting for governments. We also need to do our bit to prevent Russian bystanders from suffering and prevent the Resistance from going nuclear. Most people are probably reluctant to say this; maybe I can say it since I was a volunteer inside Bosnia during that one and am hopefully doing my part for Ukrainians and friendly Russians during this one.

  1. Obedience by military personnel, is a direct cause of war.

    Disobeying “orders” to attack and maim people, that you don’t even know is not an act of cowardice in most contexts of war.

    If you are the person using offensive force, you can’t possibly be in the right. Not even a little bit.

    There are two kinds of force people can engage in, defensive force and offensive force. Everyone has the right to use proportionate defensive force, if they chose to. Nobody has the right to use offensive force, even if a “superior” told them to.

    Disobedience to orders to apply offensive force, is an act of heroism. Wars will end, when the cannon fodder becomes aware, when they literally gain a conscience. Breaking the hypnosis of Milgram experiment type responses, is how Peace proliferates. So, yes, let us honor, those who disobey!

  2. Clearly, there are ‘Professional’ saboteurs’ working in the White House, Congress, FBI, CIA, NSA & DOJ.

  3. Thanks Dave!
    I heard u on the radio today

  4. Ridley, I believe you should become a comedian. Russia will not go to nuclear with the USA or anyone else. How many soviets citizens do you honestly believe are going to peacefully protest during a military action?
    Ukraine has nothing we want. Putin feels the Ukraine is Russia’s because they were once a part of Russia since the 900s AD. That is one thing out of many other things Putin says about the Ukraine. The whole thing is crazy.

    Again, you are asking Russian citizens and military personnel just not to follow orders. All of this inside Russia and on the border of the Ukraine. That will never happen. Russia is radical. Do you have any kind of thought as to how many Russian people would die if they did that? More than likely more than this invasion into Ukraine

  5. I heard a solution the other day which sounded like a good one, to me.
    I never agree with Lindsey Graham and I was super psyched when he lost by a large margin to Vermin Supreme in the presidential primary one year.
    But I heard him say that someone in Russia should take Putin out!
    And that sounds like such a good solution to me, because it would be really direct and with very little, if any, collateral damage.
    It would be perfect; that’s what I’m hoping for.

  6. Jumping Jacks I honestly tried really really hard to find a valid point in anything you wrote. Silly me. I know, I know your brain thing …

    “Ridley, I believe you should become a comedian. Russia will not go to nuclear with the USA or anyone else. ”

    Oh really, well most of the world seems to be worried about such silly things.

    “How many soviets citizens do you honestly believe are going to peacefully protest during a military action?”

    Hmm Western media is saying thousands of anti-war protestors have already been arrested in Russia, if you believe that sort of thing. By the way, protesting is currently illegal in Russia, presumably because of “covid.” Lol

    “Putin feels the Ukraine is Russia’s because they were once a part of Russia since the 900s AD. That is one thing out of many other things Putin says about the Ukraine.”

    Putin said that huh? I couldn’t find that. Help me out with a link?

    “Again, you are asking Russian citizens and military personnel just not to follow orders. All of this inside Russia and on the border of the Ukraine. That will never happen. Russia is radical. Do you have any kind of thought as to how many Russian people would die if they did that? More than likely more than this invasion into Ukraine”

    Uh, Ridley didn’t say that. Bob C said something like that, and if you read his whole post you’ll see he made a distinction between a defensive force and an offensive force. I encourage you to read it in full, Jumping Jacks. But maybe after you get that brain thing of yours checked out, ok bud?
