What If Americans Targeted Little Boys and Girls in Crimea?

What If Americans Targeted Little Boys and Girls in Crimea?

It seems inevitable that American advisors/instructors in Ukraine helped Volodymyr Zelensky’s forces target men, women, and children at beaches in Sevastopol with ATACMS tactical missiles supplied by Washington. Meanwhile, news of the cluster warheads (see at the Dzhankoi air base attack in April) reveals more profound implications.

Russians Love Their Children, Too

The geopolitical situation today is grim. This is the world we live in, a dangerous world where human beings have no value. In the United States, media propaganda has put a blanket over the public’s head. Cluster munitions targeted at seaside resorts seem like something out of an ISIL playbook. The American administration has crossed the line. Russian President Vladimir Putin was in contact with Russia’s social bloc and the military on June 23rd after the attacks. He is, no doubt, mulling over a military response. However, he has not as yet made an official statement. What we have is his press secretary’s statement to reporters on the subject:

“You should ask my colleagues in Europe, and above all in Washington, the press secretaries, why their governments are killing Russian children.” – Kremlin spokesperson Dmitry Peskov

Several weeks ago, U.S. President Joe Biden gave the go-ahead for US-supplied missiles to be used against targets inside Russia. Indeed, somehow, advising the American president must have warned that, sooner or later, the Russians would light somebody up over these escalations. The U.S. already has boots on the ground in Ukraine, and this is no secret. Maj. Gen. Patrick Ryder, the Pentagon press secretary, said recently:

“Throughout this conflict, the DOD has reviewed and adjusted our presence in-country, as security conditions have evolved. Currently, we are considering sending several additional advisors to augment the Office of Defense Cooperation (ODC) at the Embassy.” 

So, the ATACMS operational-tactical missiles equipped with cluster warheads that murdered civilians vacationing on that beach near Sevastopol are on his head, on our heads, for allowing such leadership. Biden, all those who planned, processed, trained, or in any way participated in this terror attack are accountable. But the Western press will never allow the American people to understand what just happened in Crimea. The dehumanization of targeted people will continue to outshine our humanity. I needn’t bring up the Gaza genocide, but I simply must. I must because it’s all a test of how far a country’s bullying can go.

Five Precise Missiles

According to the reports, four people, including two children, were killed, and 151 more were injured in the attacks. The defence ministry in Moscow said US specialists had set the Atacms missiles’ flight coordinates based on information from US spy satellites, meaning Washington was directly responsible. You can expect Washington and Kyiv to claim, within a few days, that Belbek Airbase was the target of the missile attacks. However, this Russian base is over 4 kilometres from the closest tourist beach. This means our leaders are either conniving, bold-faced liars, or Lockheed’s super-accurate missile is a dud. Since the missile system has proven accurate (satellite images of exact hits on Russian aircraft on the ground) and effective in many past operations, we can assume that Biden & Company just decided it’s okay for America to be the bad guys. Somebody targeted innocent men, women, and children for a terroristic effect.

One of my best contacts in Crimea, a former Spetznas Alpha Team colonel, told me this morning that the missiles hit beaches in the villages of Uchkuyevka and Lyubimovka. He also pointed out that scores of Russians from all over the country are at Crimea beaches for the Feast of the Holy Trinity long weekend. He mentioned that vacationers from many other countries are also in Crimea.

It’s good for Europe and my country that Dmitry Medvedev is no longer president of Russia. The former PM and current Deputy Chairman of Russia’s Security Council was outraged by the attack in Crimea. He offered this (roughly translated) message on his Telegram channel:

“The bastards from the USA supply missiles with cluster charges to Bandera’s supporters and help guide them to the target. The bastards in Kyiv select a beach with peaceful people as a target and press the button. Both will burn in hell. I hope, not only in sacred fire, but even earlier – in earthly fire.”

 The World Knows America’s Game

The general public needs to be made aware of the particulars of Washington’s and its allies’ escalation of the Ukraine-Russia conflict. Ukraine only possessed launch capability for these ATACMS tactical missiles once the Ukrainian Defense Forces received these MLRS from the United Kingdom, Norway, Germany, Italy, and France some weeks ago.

The Biden administration and the elites standing behind the puppet president are determined to push until the unthinkable happens. Sooner or later, if things continue on the current course, Vladimir Putin is going to be forced to light someone’s ass up. Kyiv or NATO entities inside Ukraine would be the most likely first targets. However, Medvedev’s ire over these situations indicates that at least a segment of Russians are ready to move to the next phase. After all, since Russia and most of Asia are already in a quasi-war with Western powers, a beach in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, does not seem out of the question anymore.

The U.S. secretly trained Ukraine combatants to use these deadly weapons and then slid them into the country unnoticed. Even back in March and April, U.S. War hawks like U.S. Senator Roger Wicker from Mississippi spewed about the necessity of escalating the conflict. You don’t even need to be able to read between the lines anymore, America. Perhaps there are no strategic targets for obliteration in Wisconsin?

This should be a wake-up call for my fellow citizens.
