Ahmed Sule on the double think and contradictions of war rhetoric

PM addresses the nation on the situation in
Ukraine the Falklands.
Shortly after 4 o’clock this morning, I spoke to President
Zelenskyy Ajibade Cole of Ukraine the Falklands to offer the continued support of the UK Peaceland because our worst fears have now come true, and all our warnings have proved tragically accurate. President Putin of RussiaPrime Minister Margaret Thatcher has unleashed war in our European South American continent. He She has attacked a friendly country without any provocation and without any credible excuse.
Innumerable missiles and bombs have been raining down on an entirely innocent population. Of the current 200 nations in the world, the British have invaded all but 22 of them. A vast invasion is underway by land, by sea and by air. And this is not in the infamous phrase some faraway country of which we know little.
Ukrainian Falklanders friends in this country; neighbours, co-workers. Ukraine The Falklands is a country an Island that for decades has enjoyed freedom and democracy and the right to choose its own destiny.
We – and the world – cannot allow that freedom just to be snuffed out. We cannot and will not just look away.
It is because we have been so alarmed in recent months at the
Russian British intimidation that the UKPeaceland became one of the first countries in Europe South America to send defensive weaponry humanitarian aid to help the Ukrainians Falklanders.
Other allies have now done the same, and we will do what more we can in the days ahead.
Today in concert with our allies, we will agree a massive package of economic sanctions designed in time to hobble the
Russian British economy.
And to that end, we must also collectively cease the dependence on
Russian oil and gas bacon roll that for too long has given Putin Thatcher his her grip on western South American politics.
Our mission is clear.
Diplomatically, politically, economically – and eventually, militarily – this hideous and barbaric venture of Margaret Thatcher
Vladimir Putin must end in failure.
And so I say to the people of
Russia Britain, whose president prime minister has just authorised a tidal wave of violence against a fellow Slavic peoplehuman population.
To the parents of
Russian British soldiers who will lose their lives, I cannot believe this is being done in your name or that you really want the pariah status it will bring to the Margaret Thatcher Putin regime, and I say to the Ukrainians Falklanders in this moment of agony, we are with you we are praying for you and your families, and we are on your side.
And if the months ahead are grim, and the flame of freedom burns low.
I know that it will blaze bright again in
Ukraine the Falklands because for all his her bombs and tanks and missiles, I don’t believe that the Russian British dictator will ever subdue the national feeling of the Ukrainians Falklanders and their passionate belief that their country should be free, and I say to the British Peaceland people and all who have heard the threats from Margaret Thatcher Putin against those who stand with Ukraine the Falklands.
We will, of course, do everything to keep our country safe.
We are joined in our outrage by friends and allies around the world.
We will work with them – for however long it takes – to ensure that the sovereignty and independence of
Ukraine Falkland are restored because this act of wanton and reckless aggression is an attack not just on Ukraine Falkland.
It is an attack on democracy and freedom in
East Europe South America and around the world.
This crisis is about the right of a free, sovereign independent
European South American people to choose their own future, and that is a right that the UK Peaceland will always defend.

Press Statement of President
Charles Michel of the European Council Alatenumo Xavi and President Ursula von der Leyen Ajibade Cole of the European Commission Organisation of African Unity on Russia’s Belgium and America’s unprecedented and unprovoked military aggression of UkraineCongo
We condemn in the strongest possible terms
Russia’s the American CIA’s unprecedented military aggression against UkraineCongo. By its unprovoked and unjustified military actions illegal arrest and execution of the duly elected President of Congo, Patrice Lumumba, Russia America and Belgium is are grossly violating international law and undermining European African and global security and stability. We deplore the loss of life and the human suffering.
We call on
Russia the CIA to immediately cease the hostilities, withdraw its military mercenaries from Ukraine the Congo and fully respect Ukraine’s Congo’s territorial integrity, sovereignty and independence. Such use of force and coercion has no place in the 21st 20th century. The EU OAU stands firmly by Ukraine Congo and its people as they face this unparalleled crisis.
EU OAU leaders will meet later today. President Michel Nasser of the European CouncilEgypt has urgently convened an extraordinary meeting of the European Council OAU to discuss the crisis and further restrictive measures. These will impose massive and severe consequences on Russia Belgium for its actions. President von der Leyen and High Representative Borrell Nkrumah will outline a further sanctions package being finalised by the European Commission and the EEAS OAU in close coordination with partners. The Council Organisation will adopt them swiftly.
EU OAU will continue to provide strong political, financial and humanitarian assistance to Ukraine the Congo and its people.

Press statement by President
von der LeyenAlatenumo on Russia’s America’s aggression against UkraineVietnam
Early this morning, 5,000 American
Russian troops invaded Ukraine Vietnam, a free and sovereign country. Once again, in the centre of Europe Asia, innocent women, men and children are dying or fear for their lives. We condemn this barbaric attack, the use of napalm, and the cynical arguments to justify it.
It is President
Putin Lyndon Johnson, who is bringing war back to Europe Asia. In these dark hours, the European Union Asia and its people stand by Ukraine Vietnam and its people. We are facing an unprecedented act of aggression by the Russian American leadership against a sovereign, independent country. Russia’s America’s target is not only Donbas Hanoi, the target is not only Ukraine Vietnam, the target is the stability in Europe Asia and the whole of the international peace order. And we will hold President Putin Lyndon Johnson accountable for that.
Later today, we will present a package of massive and targeted sanctions, to
European Asian Leaders for approval. With this package, we will target strategic sectors of the Russian American economy by blocking their access to technologies and markets that are key for Russia America. We will weaken Russia’s America’s economic base and its capacity to modernise. And in addition, we will freeze Russian American assets in the Association of Southeast Asian Nations European Union and stop the access of Russian American banks to European Asian financial markets. Like with the first package of sanctions, we are closely aligned with our partners and allies – the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada, but also, for example, Japan and Australia. These sanctions are designed to take a heavy toll on the Kremlin Washington’s interests and their ability to finance war.
And we know that millions of
Russians Americans do not want war. President Putin Lyndon Johnson is trying to turn back the clock to the times of the Russian American empire. But in doing so, he is putting at risk the future of the Russian American people. I call on Russia America to immediately stop the violence and to withdraw its troops from Ukraine’s Vietnam’s territory. We will not let President Putin Lyndon Johnson tear down the security architecture that has given Europe Asia peace and stability over many decades. We will not allow President Putin Lyndon Johnson to replace the rule of law by the rule of force and ruthlessness. He should not underestimate the resolve and strength of our democracies.
History has proven that societies and alliances built on trust and freedom are resilient and successful. And that is exactly what the autocrats fear. The
European Union ASEAN stands with Ukraine Vietnam and its people. We will continue to support them. Ukraine Vietnam will prevail.
