Dear President Putin…

UPDATED Wednesday 8:30 p.m.

Not so long ago, President Joe Biden referred to President Vladimir Putin as a “killer.” Biden was probably right, but his last physical confrontation was against the legendary Corn Pop, many years ago. The current Biden should channel the long-ago Biden to draft a speech such as this one that President Bykofsky would give.

Dear President Putin:

You have twice made reference to nuclear weapons. It is a horrible mistake to even mention this, but since you did — heed me: The U.S. has a missile with your name on it, and we know where you are every minute of the day and night.

“President Bykofsky” at the presidential podium at FDR’s home in Hyde Park, N.Y.

Should you give an order to employ nukes, it will be the last order you give. No more bare-chested horse rides, no more nights with your mistress, no more counting your billions, no more poisoning your political opponents.

You will be dead. That is a promise you can take to the bank, should they ever open again.

Some analysts here think you are crazy. I do not. I do not believe you want to die, along with your mistress, and your children. The U.S. and NATO have been more than patient, but our patience is at an end. We will not declare a ”no fly zone,” but we will send arms to Ukraine, just as you sent arms to our enemies.

Don’t pretend that didn’t happen.

If you resort to biological or chemical weapons, NATO will consider that an escalation and will furnish MIGs to Ukraine, plus another step to be determined.

Now I speak to the leaders of the Russian military. Your job is to protect your country and your people. If you start a nuclear war, you know both will be destroyed. You know the U.S. will not fire first. You also know if we are attacked, our response will be immediate, overwhelming, and devastating.

Don’t test us.

To the Russian people, our beef is not with you, as people. Our fight is with your leaders and we are sorry you will be made to suffer. As someone once said, life is unfair. The suffering your leaders have brought to Ukraine will return to you if they go too far.

Don’t test the U.S.

  1. I’m afraid that Putin is not afraid of us or our nukes. Unlike him, we are not crazy enough to deploy them and he knows that. We also have a moral compass, which he does not. If he does initiate biological, chemical or nuclear war, he will do so knowing that we will be exceedingly reluctant to retaliate in kind.

    1. I did not address bio or chemical. Maybe I should have.
      I concentrated on nukes and I don’t believe he would twitch, knowing he would die.

  2. You look like FDR!
    And sound like DJT.
    Are we so certain Putin won’t use nukes just because we won’t create a no-fly zone? Some(?)are suggesting he’s losing the war. If so, what does he have to lose?

      1. Stu, just in case you have not heard yet, President Biden has labeled puken a war criminal.
        The follwoing is from Reuters:
        “𝙋𝙧𝙚𝙨𝙞𝙙𝙚𝙣𝙩 𝙅𝙤𝙚 𝘽𝙞𝙙𝙚𝙣 𝙤𝙣 𝙒𝙚𝙙𝙣𝙚𝙨𝙙𝙖𝙮 𝙨𝙖𝙞𝙙 𝙍𝙪𝙨𝙨𝙞𝙖𝙣 𝙋𝙧𝙚𝙨𝙞𝙙𝙚𝙣𝙩 𝙑𝙡𝙖𝙙𝙞𝙢𝙞𝙧 𝙋𝙪𝙩𝙞𝙣 “𝙞𝙨 𝙖 𝙬𝙖𝙧 𝙘𝙧𝙞𝙢𝙞𝙣𝙖𝙡” 𝙛𝙤𝙧 𝙖𝙩𝙩𝙖𝙘𝙠𝙞𝙣𝙜 𝙐𝙠𝙧𝙖𝙞𝙣𝙚 𝙖𝙣𝙙 𝙖𝙣𝙣𝙤𝙪𝙣𝙘𝙚𝙙 𝙖𝙣 𝙖𝙙𝙙𝙞𝙩𝙞𝙤𝙣𝙖𝙡 $800 𝙢𝙞𝙡𝙡𝙞𝙤𝙣 𝙞𝙣 𝙨𝙚𝙘𝙪𝙧𝙞𝙩𝙮 𝙖𝙨𝙨𝙞𝙨𝙩𝙖𝙣𝙘𝙚 𝙞𝙣𝙘𝙡𝙪𝙙𝙞𝙣𝙜 𝙬𝙚𝙖𝙥𝙤𝙣𝙨 𝙩𝙤 𝙩𝙖𝙠𝙚 𝙙𝙤𝙬𝙣 𝙍𝙪𝙨𝙨𝙞𝙖𝙣 𝙥𝙡𝙖𝙣𝙚𝙨 𝙖𝙣𝙙 𝙩𝙖𝙣𝙠𝙨.”

    Mr. President,
    I would like to offer me services to you and our country, again. I would proudly perform the duties of the Secretary of Defense. I can assure you that my credentials, although not outstanding, will give credence to my abilities.
    Several of your bloggers question the sanity or desires of Mr. KGB. Putin, as noted, loved the former USSR and longs for it to be established under his leadership. After he (presumably) takes Ukraine, he will look to the other break away countries and bring them back into the fold.
    Wanda asked about the old NBC ( nuclear, biological and chemical warfare as it was known ). Here’s your answer in your own words. If you resort to biological or chemical weapons, NATO will consider that an escalation and will furnish MIGs to Ukraine, plus another step to be determined.

    1. Tony,Agreed.. BUT/AND Bio or Chem equals much more than old MIG swaps.Next step on deck.
      Stu is on point… as usual.

    2. Thank you. I will forward your job application to my director of diversity, equity and inclusion. 😧
      Wait! You are a veteran. You’re hired.
