Bloomberg and ZeroHedge are reporting on what appears to be Hypersonic Missile Technology used by Putin’s army of war criminals to destroy one of the Ukrainian weapons caches the US has been supplying.
For a convincing film of the purported hypersonic missile that NATO will face when Putin draws them in, ZeroHedge provides it without a paywall:
Since NATO has declared emphatically that it will not confront him directly, Putin will chase out, terrorize, massacre, and starve civilians, carting off captured souls to remote Russian/Siberian prison camps (NPR radio reported today that some prisoners already have been removed to Russia). Once no more resistors stand their ground, Ukrainian territory can be awarded to Putin’s loyal disciples, gifted with Ukrainian land as the spoils of war.
One Russia expert on NPR Radio this afternoon stated that Putin is using the same illegal tactics in Ukraine that his army used in Syria: keeping humanitarian aid out of pulverized cities like Mariupol long enough to starve the resistance to death.
The intentional targeting of Ukrainian hospitals, maternity wards, and children cowering in basements demonstrates that Putin’s forces are practicing the same art of illegal warfare they perfected in Syria and Chechnya.
Since Russia’s brutal civilian-targeting tactics in Chechnya and Syria went unpunished - despite violating the international law of war, the Geneva Conventions, and the moral laws of humanity, Putin reigns as the Alpha Dog of the United Nations. No UN member has challenged him or demanded punishment of his past war crimes and none dare defy him now.
Following on his promises to escalate and retaliate against humanity’s defenders without compunction, Putin intentionally demonstrated dominance by use of a hypersonic missile to take out the US-supplied Ukrainian underground weapons facility today.
If a NATO country or UN member stands up to him - defensively or offensively, Putin need only remind them that he is ready to arm a successfully demonstrated hypersonic missile with a tactical nuclear warhead. Such a threat, backed up by his obvious capability and willingness to defy all civilized rules and human laws, may continue to keep all other global leaders, including China’s Xi, at bay.
Knowing what happened 90 years ago, when a heart of absolute evil ruled as a tyrant unchecked, it is hard to believe that civilized nations sat silently and watched it happen again. The august leaders of the United Nations have allowed Putin to so thoroughly flout international law in Chechnya and Syria that he is confidently pursuing the same pernicious tactics in Mariupol and other areas of Ukraine. Putin and his generals presume their actions of the last month will not result in any war crimes trials or serious military response by NATO or any member of the United Nations acting on behalf of humanity itself.
To Putin, international law, conventions, and treaties mean absolutely nothing. The only thing that means anything to him is power - force, leverage, or an equally unfettered heart of evil - a steely willingness to stop at nothing to dominate any foe.
