Are you comparing WW2 with Ukraine ? Really ?
Yes. Really. Letting assholes just do whatever the fuck they want leads them to keep doing whatever the fuck they want. Do you honestly believe for one minute that Bedpan will stop with Ukraine if he's allowed to win? Nope. He's already threatened Finland and the Baltics specifically by name.

Sometimes it's not WHAT you say but what you don't say.

Putin started waving his nuclear dick over Western weapons being used to hit Russian territory. Now this is an interesting comment since he considers Eastern Ukraine and Crimea to be "Russian" territory that he is "liberating" from so-called Ukro-nazis while engaging in a little ethnic cleansing. So, it's pretty clear he either doesn't consider those territories to be Russian considering the tonnage of Western weapons and weapon systems deployed there, in which case he's demonstrated that it is indeed an illegal occupation with mass murder of civilians. Or he's just impotently waving his nuclear dick like he has since the war began.
Bedpan isn't gonna nuke anyone. Why would he? All that would result in is him being the dictator of his little nuclear bunker as NATO responds in kind. He's simply trying to scare western citizens into pressuring their respective govts to let Russia have a free hand in Ukraine.

Man who killed 7-year-old Ukrainian girl in Montreal hit-and-run won't get jail time
Juan Manuel Becerra Garcia’s sentence includes six months of house arrest, a curfew and probation. He is prohibited from driving for two years.

The man who ran over a seven-year-old Ukrainian girl shortly after her family arrived in Canada to flee the Russian invasion of their country will serve no time behind bars after he admitted he failed to stop at the scene of the fatal collision in the Ville-Marie borough.


While delivering his decision at the Montreal courthouse on Wednesday, Quebec Court Judge Pierre Labelle twice told Maria Legenkovska’s mother, Galyna Legenkovska, that nothing he could say about the sentence would help her cope with her loss.

The judge agreed with a common suggestion made in May, from prosecutor Sylvie Dulude and defence lawyer Éric Coulombe, that Juan Manuel Becerra Garcia, 46, receive a sentence that includes six months of house arrest followed by a curfew for another six months. Following that, Becerra Garcia will be on probation for another 12 months. He is prohibited from driving for two years.

The judge told Becerra Garcia to expect that the conditions of his house arrest will be strictly monitored. He reminded him that he is required to have a land telephone line installed at his home soon and that he is expected to answer calls whenever his surveillance agent calls him.


If he does not follow the conditions closely, the judge said, Becerra Garcia risks having to serve time behind bars.

“Whatever I say here will not change anything at all in this tragedy. I don’t have this power. I hope that time reduces your suffering and that you are surrounded by people who can help you on your path,” the judge told Legenkovska, who was present in the courtroom.


On Dec. 13, 2022, Maria was on her way to school when she was hit by Becerra Garcia’s Jeep Cherokee in a school zone while she was walking near the intersection of Parthenais and de Rouen Sts. She was one of three Ukrainian siblings who came to Montreal with their mother just months earlier to flee the Russian invasion.

Her father stayed in Ukraine to fight in the war.


When Becerra Garcia pleaded guilty in May, he admitted that he knew he struck something with his Jeep. He also said he looked back to see what happened and did not see the girl, so he continued on his way. He said he only realized he had struck the girl when he heard news reports about the hit and run later that day.

He turned himself in at a police station in Longueuil and co-operated with investigators, which Labelle listed as mitigating factors in his decision to agree with the sentencing recommendation. The judge noted that Becerra did not have a previous criminal record and that neither speed nor alcohol were factors.

“The message to the public is that, when we hit something without knowing what it is, we have to stop. We have to get out and find out what made that sound,” Coulombe told reporters after Garcia tried to make a statement outside the courtroom in Spanish. “He didn’t know that he hit the little girl.”

Dulude told reporters that “the judge considered the full portrait of the accused” while determining the sentence.

“He considered how he doesn’t represent a danger to society and, because he doesn’t have a criminal record, the risk of reoffending is weak, or even non-existent,” the prosecutor said.

600,000 Ukraines dead, cities destroyed.

A peace deal was on the table with Putin before this war started but Biden wanted war, and sent

Boris Johnson to sabotage peace deals.


I wonder if the Ukrainians think it was worth it.
