Michael Walsh, AFP’s Spain-based Europe correspondent, joins me, Kevin Barrett, AFP’s North Africa correspondent, for a little trans-Mediterranean dialogue.
In his recent American Free Press article Michael Walsh notes that Putin’s right-hand man, Dmitry Medvedev, advocates “the reduction of Kiev to ashes” and says the defeat of the West is “inevitable.” The reason should have been obvious to Western policy-makers from the get-go: “For Western countries, it is a distant conflict but for Russia, it is a war of self-preservation…” Or to use the hackneyed and somewhat un-Muslim metaphor on involvement vs. commitment: In a ham-and-eggs breakfast, the chicken is involved but the pig is committed. Russia is fully committed to winning; as the biggest nuclear power on Earth it would use all of its weapons and reduce the Earth to cinders before it would allow itself to be defeated in a conflict it sees as existential. That is, after all, what nuclear weapons are for. So the notion that Ukraine can win, i.e. Russia can lose, is a lunatic fantasy that only cokehead fools like Zelensky could ever even pretend to believe.
