  • Western Amnesia –

NATO and the EU have apparently learned nothing from World War Two. Either that, or they have developed a collective case of amnesia. When I read the statement today by the new German Defense Minister Boris Pistorius, “There will have to come a time after the war… when we in Europe will be able get along with Russia, in whatever form”, I became angry. When I previously read about French President Emmanuel Macron saying, “we must not humiliate Russia so that the day when the fighting stops we can build an exit ramp through diplomatic means”, I was very upset. When Hungarian President Viktor Orban recently stated, “This is not our war”, I was furious.

What Western leader in their right mind in 1945 would have stated “we must not humiliate Nazi Germany (or Imperial Japan) so that the day when the fighting stops we can build an exit ramp through diplomatic means?” Or, “There will have to come a time after the war… when we in Europe will be able get along with Hitler’s Nazi Germany and Hirohito’s Imperial Japan, in whatever form.” No Western leader would have said that for obvious reasons, one of them being that we didn’t want to “get along with” or give a rat’s ass about humiliating Nazi Germany or Imperial Japan. In fact, the more humiliated they were, the better, as well having them experience as much suffering as possible. Why? Because there was a WAR being conducted for the survival of Western democracies, just as the war in Ukraine is a fight for the survival of Western democracies is now.

Nazi Germany and Imperial Japan had also committed untold atrocities and war crimes on both military personnel and innocent civilians during that war, just as Russia is doing today. Just like current day Russia, Nazi Germany and Imperial Japan would not have stopped their aggression unless defeated militarily and stopped decisively by the West. Worrying about the sensibilities of the enemy (Putin’s Russia), the nation responsible for the war and the many horrific atrocities, pain, death and destruction, is ludicrous and makes me downright livid.

Until NATO and the EU find a cure for their common amnesia and cowardice, Ukraine will continue to suffer for our sins, and we, the collective West, will have no one to blame but ourselves. – David DeBatto
