Putin, evil incarnate
This is what a world without a strong America looks like.
Front Page Magazine has the translation of an audio with Putin threatening to use women and children as human shields:
Putin: Listen to me. Listen to me carefully. I want you to correctly understand me.
If we reach that decision, only if we reach that decision, it will only be for the defense of Ukrainian citizens, let anyone from the military dare shoot at their own people which we will be behind, not in front but behind, let them try and shoot at women and children.
Let me see who in the Ukraine will give such an order.
They also report Russia Today as saying this:
“We are not going to a war against the Ukrainian people,” he said. “I want you to understand it unambiguously. If we do take a decision, it would only be to protect Ukrainian citizens. Let anybody in the military dare, and they’d be shooting their own people, who would stand up in front of us. Shoot at women and children. I’d like to see anyone try and order such a thing in Ukraine.”
Listen to the video on youtube. It’s in Russian but if you click transcript underneath and then put the transcript into the google translator, you will find that the translation is exactly accurate.
