LOGIC’S ESCAPE By Abena Osegu Boateng

Logic has managed a clean escape from the heads of western leaders and their cheer-leaders in the media and the result is complete senseless confusion.

The other day, the world heard Joe Baiden and his friends from England, Germany, and elsewhere in Europe complaining bitterly about Russian aggression in Ukraine and threatening hell fire.

The truth however is that the 100,000 Russian soldiers the west has been complaining about are stationed in Russia. They have not invaded anybody’s country and there is not a shred of evidence that they will venture into anybody’s territory.

These Russian soldiers are in their own country, and they say that they are preparing themselves to defend their land and people against the crazy militarization of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization on their borders.

Since the USA began its war-hysteria, it has dispatched so-called military advisors and weapons of so many grades into Ukraine. Several NATO countries have sent military advisors and weapons into Ukraine.

Whiles all these are going on, Volodymyr Oleksandrovych Zelenskyy, the president of Ukraine appears very alarmed. He has asked western leaders not to exaggerate the situation in his country. In plain language, he has told the western leaders who appear to love Ukraine more than him, that his country is not about to be invaded by Russia.

Who will listen to Zelenskyy? Certainly not the BBC or Voice of America (VoA). They are hell-bent on worsening the anti-Russia hysteria to create the most favorable conditions for the invasion of Ukraine by NATO forces.

Isn’t it interesting that the United States of America which has military bases in more than 100 countries usually without the approval of the people there, is complaining about a possible Russian invasion of Ukraine by Russia?

In any case if the invasion of other people’s countries is a bad thing, then what is the USA doing in Syria and Iraq? What was the USA doing in Afghanistan, Vietnam, Cuba, and Panama?

Perhaps the strangest of all the developments is the threats issued the USA and its friends to Russia. Baiden says that the West is ready to severely punish Russia if it invades Ukraine.

Sometimes I just wonder how the mouse can dream of threatening the lion.

Fact is that a few months ago the USA was so badly beaten by the rag tag army of the Taliban in Afghanistan. Perhaps Baiden needs to be reminded that Russia is not Afghanistan, and the Russian army is not called Taliban.

How can anybody with the slightest idea of history quiver in the face of threats from Washington? The USA was badly beaten in Korea, it lost the war in Vietnam and has been repeatedly defeated by the small Island of Cuba with a population of only 11 million people.

The escape of logic is true and that is the only explanation for the mass foolishness around us.
