PEACE—NOT PERPETUAL WAR
I n our last issue, we focused on the still-ongoing war in Ukraine and warned that atrocity tales coming out of war zones always need to be examined carefully. As it turns out, many of the claims of atrocities by Russian forces in Ukraine have turned out to be outright lies. Since our last issue, for instance, the Ukrainian parliament, the Verkhovna Rada, removed Lyudmila Denisova, the parliament’s commissioner for human rights, from her post. According to Newsweek magazine: “The move to dismiss Denisova came after outrage about the wording used in public reports about alleged sexual assaults committed by Russians, as well as the alleged dissemination in those reports of unverified information. … Ukrainian media outlets and journalists signed an open letter in which they requested that reports concerning rape and sexual assault be ‘published with caution,’ particularly when involving children, according to an English translation.”
The letter also cautioned, “[Unverified accusations of rape] cannot serve as illustrative material to inflame the emotions of the audience.” In another development, there are reports from Russian officials of fanatical Ukrainian paramilitary fighters shooting surrendering Ukrainian soldiers as they try to lay down their arms. The message is clear: “Fight to the death or be executed.” The Russian Ministry of Defense issued the following statement: “In recent weeks, incidents involving the shooting of Ukrainian servicemen in the back by ‘nationalist’ units have become more frequent in areas of military operations.”
In one instance, the Russians say, Ukrainian “servicemen with white flags began moving toward Russian positions. At that moment, a Ukrainian nationalist ‘barrier unit’ arrived at the stronghold in armored vehicles and opened crossfire in the back on the servicemen of the 54th Brigade of the Ukrainian Armed Forces.”
The reality of the situation on the battlefield is so dire for Ukrainian troops, many military experts believe the Ukrainian Army cannot survive much longer. The best thing for Ukraine to do is end this war by coming to some agreement with Russia. Of course, no one wants to reward Putin for invading Ukraine, but the sooner this war ends— whether it results in the ceding of Ukrainian territory or not—the better it will be for the world and the people of Ukraine. Tens of thousands of people have died, cultural sites have been bombed to rubble and economic and agricultural activity has completely halted in areas of Ukraine.
Due to Volodymyr Zelensky’s insistence on fighting a much more powerful foe—and trying to drag Western European nations and the U.S. into the fray—the entire world has for months been but one miscalculated military decision or one false-flag attack away from a serious escalation of the hostilities that could forever alter the world in which we live—perhaps even destroy it. It’s time to end this war, not keep sending more advanced weapons to Ukraine merely to extend the conflict for as long as possible, simply to preoccupy and weaken Russia. Though we have a great admiration for the tenacity and patriotism of the Ukrainian people, peace and stability is the best option for Ukraine and the rest of the world. This incredibly stupid and tragic war between ethnic brothers must end. The White race has suffered enough from these kinds of fratricidal conflicts. In the end, it is only arms makers, warmongers, bankers and power-mad politicians who profit from them. ❖ —PAUL ANGEL, Executive Editor
