Congress loves Rambo Zelenskyy and Ukraine, but war is not a movie
Ukrainian President Zelenskyy worn no suit, he addressed congress in a dirty t-shirt from the battle grounds of Ukraine. He was on a large video monitor with the lights down and the video feed played to the anxious congress. Pass the popcorn. This was the most exciting moment in congress since the first President Trump State of The Union address in 2017. Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi introduced President Zelenskyy of Ukraine; the crowd gave him a standing ovation. A real-life Rambo was too much for the congress to bare, this sure better for them than waiting for viral tweets on twitter.
If Zelenskyy were in America, he would be given a TV show, or a movie offer today. He could easily be elected to congress in any democrat state. America loves a hero, and this is what Zelenskyy is in America.
Zelenskyy did not come empty handed, knowing America loves movies, he brought his own adult only not safe for work video of children being slaughtered by Russian missiles. What Zelenskyy did not mention was the fact that Russia said they entered Ukraine because Russian safety was been threatened as European nations have been inching closer to Russian land. They keep coming closer and closer, with weapons firmly in hand. Russia President Putin says he had no choice but to break down the military in Ukraine. Before entering Russia, Putin begged Ukrainians to lay down arms and flee into neighboring Poland.
CNN recorded Putin’s plea to lay down arms before anyone got hurt the day before the battle began.
Putin said he wanted no bloodshed, but the USA told Ukrainians to fight, “We got your back”.
Zelenskyy has been made into a hero for resisting Russia, the slogan of the democrat party is “Resist” and resist he has.
Now Zelenskyy (the new Rambo) is asking America for more weapons, and surely, he will get his weapons, the fighting will continue, in a futile effort to defeat a world power.
Had America told Zelenskyy the truth about a war with Russia, we can only guess how many civilians may have been saved. The plain fact of the matter is most Ukrainians wanted no part of the Rambo show, more than 3 million have fled Ukraine into neighboring Poland. Ukrainians know that missiles will continuingly rain down over Ukraine long after American congress members are home for dinner. Ukraine is in rumbles, it has been blasted back to the stone age, yet Zelenskyy has a plea for Americans in congress, the plea is not for talks with Putin and Russia, the plea is for more weapons. War sells a lot of news, and the American media is loving this Russia vs Ukraine battle, but the fact of the matter is Zelenskyy may have been misled by Americans into believing he is a movie character that could go up against a superpower with nuclear weapons.
