Mad Men Of The World


A few years ago — it seems like an eternity to me — we were hearing talk about Sadaam Hussein, the leader of Iraq, being a “Mad Man” and some people were wondering how they could make sure he was never able to attack the United States with the “Weapons Of Mass Destruction” that he was supposed to have had. — As it is now known, Hussein was finally “Removed” from the world stage in a most dramatic and final fashion. — There are, of course, a great number of powerful men in this world who might be considered as deranged and right now, I believe the main contender for that crown would be Russian President Putin.

And now that Putin has unleashed his gush of death and destruction on Ukraine and has been making veiled threats about using nuclear weapons against anyone who gets in his way, the case might be made that we have another “Mad Man” on the world stage who has the wherewithal to attack The United States with his “Weapons Of Mass Destruction” — and there is no doubt that Putin possesses those — unlike Hussein who never had any.

So if there are similarities in the situation between Hussein and Putin — both allegedly Mad, both being a potential threat to the safety and security of The United States and the world in general, why has not someone in a position of power decided to do a Hussein move on the new guy? I am not suggesting that something like that should happen; I am just asking why it does not seem to be in the works.

This whole war between Ukraine and Russia seems to me to be the weirdest thing I have ever witnessed. Missiles are exploding all over Ukraine and none are exploding in Russia. That does not seem to be fair to my way of thinking. I think that what is good for the goose is good for the gander — yet the gander in this case seems to me to be getting a free ride!

  1. Unlike Putin, it was discovered that Saddam had no weapons of mass destruction whatsoever. The Saudis masterminded the attacks on 9/11, and the Gulf War against Iraq was only ever about Kuwait, and oil. They had to get rid of Saddam to get their hands on it.
    Best wishes, Pete.
