‘Russia Attacks Ukraine,’ is the headline in every newspaper across the world, while people are calling the Russian leader, Vladimir Putin, an evil man and a murderer. Which superpower country in the world has murdered more people than the United States of America?
That’s how hypocrites and selfish people who often listen to one side of a story react and begin to spread false propaganda against others. Before people will start attacking Vladimir Putin, they must first try to find out the reason behind the man’s actions.
If African leaders are like Putin, the continent will not have suffered much. Many African leaders are so stupid to the extent that they will accept money for every proposal by foreign countries in Africa, even if that will threaten the lives of their citizens.
As we know, many African countries have permitted the US government to build military bases in their countries because they believed America will prevent or fight terrorism on the shores of Africa. That’s a very big mistake the Russian leader will never let that happen.
Russia, China, North Korea, etc; are three countries that pose a threat to the US government, just as Libya was a threat to the US government. Through the National Alliance Treaty Organization – NATO, Libya was attacked and Khadafy was killed. Today, Libya, the wealthiest African country is in ruins.
Since Russia has been America’s enemy for a very long time, NATO has been in alliance with several European countries near to Russia and now they are determined to occupy Ukraine because they want to join NATO. This will be the biggest mistake any intelligent leader that considers America or NATO a threat to accept.
Putin knows America wants to use NATO to attack Russia. That will be very easy indeed since Ukraine and Russia share common borders. This is what Vladimir Putin wants to prevent to protect the Russian citizens.
Vladimir Putin is not like an African leader to permit a US military base in his country and before African leaders that have permitted such military bases in their countries, know the stupidity of their actions, then it’s too late. Time will tell.
The continent of Africa is not a threat to terrorists for African leaders to be tricked by the US government to build their military bases across Africa. They did that because of African resources.
The world is rapidly changing and pressure continues to pile up on Africa from both Europe and the United States of America because of the continent’s vast resources, therefore, those military bases were set up to quell any uprising.
The US always poses a threat to terrorists, we witnessed what happened on September 11, and therefore, it doesn’t make sense for the US government to build its military bases in Africa with its intention to fight terrorists for Africans.
Who cares about Africa anyway? It’s because of our resources Africans has been a victim of slavery, colonialism brutalities, Apartheid, and many man-made diseases. There are a lot of things African leaders can learn from the Russian-Ukraine war.
Putin is aware that since 1949, NATO is seeking to destroy Russia, thus; when he realized the US is increasing the Ukrainian crisis by pushing NATO, he needs to react fast, that’s why the war started.
If you watch the position of Russia on the map, you can see that the country is surrounded by NATO, in fact, it has expanded its positions around Russia, which in no time, Russia may fall into the hands of the US government.
Every wise leader must protect their citizens and since Putin is not an African leader, he has done the right thing, so people should stop judging him when our porous borders have invited every criminal, including armed robbers to enter Ghana and terrorize Ghanaians.
The West and the US government have never changed their behavior when Russia becomes the subject. This can be seen as the US President, Joe Biden and the European leaders started with the threats of sanctions against Russia but Putin is not the kind of leader that can be intimidated with sanctions.
Just think about the position Putin stands for, if you are a president, will you allow your enemy to occupy a country you share common borders with to attack you? Putin has the right to defend his country and the people, therefore, don’t be too judgmental.
