Famine and Radiations as Weapons of War; Or: Nobody Will Win in Ukraine

ALONG with rape (of women and children), there are weapons of war that aren’t firearms. Massacres (like the above) are difficult for one’s eyes, but there are even uglier sights than these. Take Terror-Famine for instance. “More than 2,500 people were convicted of cannibalism during the Holodomor,” Wikipedia notes. There are references there, this one being the most prominent one albeit offline (but in the Wayback Machine).

Ukrainian people still remember (the oldest among them experienced it) what the Soviets did to them. Maybe some of the children shown below are even alive today (they would have to be almost 110 in age, at least for the older generation).

Soviet Genocide against Ukrainian people

Earlier today I wrote that a resolution, not a war, ought to be sought. Nobody wins in wars. Everyone loses. In the meantime, trafficking weapons to Ukraine is likely to perpetuate wars. Send supplies like food and medicine instead. Try to find a compromise like a ceasefire. Some of the sanctions accomplish nothing as they can further radicalise the Russian population, driven (like in Stockholm Syndrome) to sympathy with the dictator.

This conflict is just over a week old. If it doesn’t stop soon, it could end up killing millions. Stop the war. Stop it now. Don’t inflame it.
