I am fully aware of the United States' Wolfowitz Doctrine which guides US political and military elites to actively seek to prevent the rise of any other global superpower and…… Image
Just imagine a Southern Africa now recreated into the United States of Southern Africa, now like this. More powerful, more prosperous. All these spaza shops of countries we currently running are just useless in Geopolitics & International Relations and just keep us weak and poor. Image
I still ask today: why are we keeping European borders and these tiny, unviable countries? How do we control our resources when we are so fragmented and divided? How do tiny countries of 3 or 5 or 10 or even 50 million negotiate anything successful against others? Image

Today hundreds rallied in DC for America to enforce a no-fly zone in Ukraine, effectively promising to shoot down Russian jets in that airspace.

The group played a "lullaby" video with images of babies and lyrics like, "If you don't close the sky, I will die."
Full lyrics:

"If you don't close the sky I will die
IYDCTS mom will cry
IYDCTS he'll lose home
IYDCTS there'll be doom
IYDCTS the sky will still fight
IYDCTS we'll feel the night
IYDCTS he [Putin] might win
Now look in these eyes and think again"

'Defending Democracy Together' Director @BillKristol praised "the people of Ukraine who are reminding us what free men and women can do under brutal assault from an aggressor, from a dictator who is violating obviously all the laws of war and norms of decency."

In Berlin main station 15000 dear Ukrainian people arrive very day, about 1000 are housed DAILY by Berlin council, the other families ans friends move on to other cities in Germany and beyond.
I love Germany 🇩🇪. It’s where my family originated from.
But 1/
2/ so so much more needs to be done.
Housing and giving a home abroad when people are fleeing is one thing.
And the country where I am also a citizen of,the UK 🇬🇧,is currently NOT doing enough to help those who are in that desperate situation. My other people (Germans) 2/
3/ caused the biggest World War and suffering across the globe (along with colonization which Germans, British, Spanish, Portuguese etc caused , so I am mindful of what I am saying and not saying here:
But my PARENTS also fled the Russians in 1945 from the East to the West … 3/

1/Watching the EU making statements in unity about Putins war murders makes you realize the UK is standing on the side lines.Ministers barely making random visits to the Polish border for photo shoots for British tabloid papers

What was the reason for leaving a block of 500 Mio?
2/ … What was the reason to leave the EU, the block of 500 Mio people and 27 countries again? Oh yes, #ToryBrexitDisaster was about limiting Immigration into our country because we Brits need those houses and Jobs and Money that the evil people (like me, I’m on both sides) from
3/ “abroad” are taking from “the natives” in the UK 🤦🏻… . Everyone here has ancestors who came to Britain. That’s the funny side of that one.
The not funny part is finding out more every day how the Tories bowed to the Russian money,took it and hence became complicit in weaken

A few observations about the just-concluded @UN General Assembly vote condemning Russia's invasion of Ukraine. The vote was 141-5. And the bottom line is that Vladimir Putin is more isolated than ever before (1/7):
First, just note that Cuba and Venezuela did not support Russia at the @UN. When you’re Russia and you’ve lost Cuba and Venezuela…
Meanwhile, just last week, the United Arab Emirates abstained from a similar resolution at the @UN Security Council. Today, UAE voted with Ukraine. So has Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, and Saudi Arabia—the entirety of the @GCCSG.

As the world watches in horror at the violence inflicted upon the Ukrainian people, we join the growing call from people of conscious all around the world in #StandingWithUkraine. No matter who you are, all people have the right to safety in their homes and on their land.
Palestinians, like many people, know all too well the pain and suffering of military invasion and occupation. So when we see images from Ukraine we can’t help but empathize with another group that knows that pain too.
Everyone should be protected from violence. When people's homes and lives are under threat, anyone would fight to defend themselves and the ones they love.

1- چند وقتی بود به علت مشغله فراوان و از جمله عدم انتشار تحلیل و نوشته به شکل مفتی، در توییتر فعال نبودم. اما در این چند روزه، شبها دیر خوابیدم و صبحها زود بلند شدم تا اخبار حمله روسیه به اوکراین رو دنبال و منتشر کنم. در اینجا تحلیل خودم رو در مورد این اتفاق بسیار مهم ارایه میکنم
2- پوتین با حمله تمام عیار به اوکراین احتمالا بزرگترین و شاید آخرین اشتباه زندگی سیاسی خودش رو انجام داد. این حمله ناشی از دو فرض غلط بود. اول اینکه روسها و اوکرانیها یک ملت هستند و اوکرانیها به ویژه روس تباران شرق این کشور از ارتش روسیه استقبال خواهند کرد و حکومت اوکراین به سرعت
3- ساقط خواهد شد. دوم اینکه غرب و @NATO از هم گسیخته هستند و نمیتوانند یک پاسخ منسجم به روسیه بدهند. نه تنها اوکراینیها به شدت مقاومت کردند و به ملی گرایی اوکراینی جانی دوباره بخشیدند بلکه حتی عمده روس تباران شرق این کشور ترجیح میدهند در یک اوکراین دموکراتیک با اقتصاد بازار آزاد

1/6 THREAD: 2 urgent steps to stop Russia's war in Ukraine: #StandingWithUkraine #StopRussia #StopRussianAggression
2/6 Russia's invasion of Ukraine is taking innocent lives and devastating a peaceful country. We can stop it. There are two practical steps the international community can take to halt the Russian invasion in its tracks immediately.
3/6 1) Russia funds its wars with its oil and gas pipelines. To stop the Russian invasion, we need to demand an immediate embargo on Russian oil and gas. Only then will Putin run out of rubles for his war.

A friend of mine is very disheartened whats going on+how some people even defend Putin+how he+those who disregard rules+democracy get away with it. In the UK or in 🇷🇺
„Why should we not give up and be like the selfish+theTyrants?“
This is how I responded to her.
A Thread 🧵
1 /
2 /„I totally understand your frustration.
It’s unbelievable what selfishness people have these days.

You are right and correct in all you say.

There is zero excuse for the brutality and mass murder that Putin is doing in Ukraine
3 /(and in several other countries of course) and how he corrupted Brexit and how he corrupted the UK government and how he gives billions of pounds to his oligarch friends in Knightsbridge while his own Russian people are dying of poverty and freezing to death in the wide areas

Note what looks like polystyrene being added to make the Molotovs more potent - acting like a plasticiser or home made napalm.

A truly horrible but sadly necessary defensive weapon in this context unless the world rearms or better reinforces #Ukraine
This image says it all wife’s, sisters, mothers, daughters, grandmothers forced to prepare for war.
