Putin: his greatest feat

Some thought about Vladimir Putin

Putin: his greatest feat

First I must answer the most urgent question that loom in the minds of many readers, “Who are you?” “Who are you to have a say about anything?” “You ain’t nobody!” I hear many saying in the background, on the sidelines, a way off in the dark shadows. And they are correct, “I am no body.” I am simply a humble United States Citizen. Oh yes! I did retire from military service after serving 20 stellar years, after having won two Navy Marine Corps Service Medals for doing outstanding volunteer work, out in the streets, feeding the homeless, providing free, “golden-standard” level, primary care medicine, to the homeless. I practiced medicine caring for the homeless, the same way other physicians practice medicine when they are caring for the rich. By the way, even though I was a respected war-fighter, I never killed anybody. I don’t like killing people, I like healing people. I am a lucky person, have spent 20 colorful years in the active military service of my country “without killing” a soul. Thank God for that.

I am a theologian, a physician, a historian, a Japanese Nature farmer, and my Amish friends see me as a “World-class” educator. Those who respect me, for what I have achieved in Life, call me Dr. Haddox. Most of my friends call me “Just Freddie.”

Okay, now that you know who I am, please allow me to share with you what I think is Mr. Vladimir Putin’s “greatest feat” and “most imminent opportunity.” I am going to keep this discourse short, by the way.

Within the last week our Vice President John Kerry has been trying to deal with the great idea, that he casually mentioned, “getting the Syrian government to allow the international community to take control of Syria’s chemical weapons stockpile, with the ultimate goal of ridding the world of this problem.” That was a good idea, regardless of the minimal effort it took to verbalize it.

Will Syria’s President Bashar Assad, agree to this idea? Does he really have a choice? This is where the influence of Vladimir Putin comes to play into the picture. My belief is that Mr. Putin can help to accomplish this mission, that is, the mission to secure Syria’s chemical stockpiles.

What’s done is done. In wars, people die. Even women and children die in wars, in all wars. There has never been a war fought in the history of this world where women, children, and old people, by the way, did not die. “War is Hell!” Somebody uttered this statement and I cannot remember who she or he was.

Vladimir Putin deserves to have our respect. I did not say you had to like him. I said he deserves our utmost respect, for who he is, and for what he in a position to do, for this world.

WHERE ARE YOU GOING WITH THIS? I can her some asking.

I feel, NOW IS THE TIME, for us to consider the idea of getting rid of all WEAPONS OF MASS DESTRUCTION!

Somebody needs to say this, so why not me? I am serious. There is no longer a need for the concept of WEAPONS OF MASS DESTRUCTION. We don’t need these weapons anymore. Actually, we should have never created them in the first place. Some may say, “We dropped two WEAPONS OF MASS DESTRUCTION on Japan and ended a war. “ There is not enough time and space in this discourse to get into the ethics of such an act, so I want get into it.

But I can say this, and without reservations, “We need to get rid of all the “weapons of mass destruction,” now. Now is the time. We are in the right place, in history, and this is the right time. Right Now!

As we go,

Peace.

Dr. Haddox

      Mar29Swift Last time I flew I was sitting next to an older man lsnetniig to my mp3 player and he asked me to check with a stewardess about turning it off. I didn't.The threat from electronics on airlines is interrupting communications during take off. Slight chance from mobile phones and WiFi devices, but zero from stuff like mp3 players, e-readers etc It's seriously retarded, airport security is next these days, if electronics where such a threat they wouldn't let you take them on the plane and terrorists would be sneaking radios onto planes.
