Pack up your bags Vlad and whatever is left of your army and head back to Mother Russia.  The world tried to warn you Vlad but you wouldn’t listen. Russian kids deserve better than being shanghaied into fighting a needless war with a peaceful neighbor who used to be part of the U.S.S.R. family.

Your army looked so strong, mighty and intimidating parked at the Ukraine visitor center.  The Russian main battle tanks looked fierce, deadly and indestructible. The crews appeared young and confident standing behind their armored plated turrets. Russia was ten feet tall and invincible and the entire world held its breath.

Everyone thought that you were a wise and powerful king who would be smart enough to avoid invading a peaceful country.  Vlad, do the words Hitler, Panzers and Blitzkrieg ring any bells?  They should.  Russia was once at peace with Germany and suddenly Hitler’s henchmen were pounding at your front doors and slaughtering innocent Russians.

You should have known better Vlad, you really should have. War is brutal and the outcome is usually unpredictable.  Mother Russia sacrificed so much defeating Hitler and the world cheered your brave and heroic soldiers in their quest to stop the deadly Nazi war machine.  The price of war is death, destruction and despair which Russia paid dearly for in WWII.


The world stopped cheering and watched in abject horror when you invaded Ukraine and commenced slaughtering innocent, peaceful Ukrainians.  Mothers across the Ukraine and Russia are crying as their beloved sons, daughters and husbands have been killed or severely injured.  Cities lie in ruins and one third of the invading Russian army has been destroyed.  You did that Vlad! Your main battle tanks were no match for 21st century anti-tank weapons.  Javelin missiles destroyed your tanks and vaporized crews.  A Neptune missile sank Russia’s flagship, Moskva, which now forlornly sits at the bottom of the sea.  Vlad, for God’s sake, Ukraine doesn’t even have a Navy and they sank your flagship!

Vlad, I’m an old guy and I know a thing or two because I’ve seen a thing or two.  Your ill-conceived invasion has been an unmitigated disaster and the consequences continue to be catastrophic.  Stop destroying Ukraine, sound the retreat and send your young soldiers back home where they belong.

Mr. Putin, it is rumored that you are gravely ill with some type of cancer. This would be an opportune time for you to hang a MISSION ACCOMPLISHED banner and retire.

The entire world will breathe a huge sigh of relief when you leave the world stage forever.  We can’t miss you until you leave.
