Attacks on journalists show the Putin regime’s fear of the truth

blank

The cowardly killing of reporter Brent Renaud and wounding of his colleague Juan Arredondo as they slowly drove past a Russian checkpoint mirrored the gun attack on Sky’s Stuart Ramsay and his crew. him earlier this month (‘American journalist shot dead by Russians, becomes first press fatal’, Irish Independent, 14 March).

r Ramsay’s official press van was also moving slowly past a Russian checkpoint when it also came under fire
point-blank range.

Miraculously, Mr Ramsay escaped with “only” two bullet wounds in his back.

Putin’s henchmen in Russia did not poison, shoot or stab the journalists who tried to cover exactly what he and his corrupt regime were up to.

Russian journalist Anna Politkovskaya is a case in point. She was given a cup of tea laced with poison in 2004 but survived. She continued her fearless work as a reporter until she was shot dead in 2006.

If anyone is afraid of the truth, it is the cowardly Putin.

The West must stop encouraging a war Ukraine can never win

Now that the whole world is suffering the consequences of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, maybe it’s time to stop the propaganda to save the lives of innocent Ukrainians and the economies of Europe.

Putin invaded because of threats that Ukraine would join NATO. Had it been chosen neutral, the invasion might never have happened.

Once the invasion occurred, the West, and I included our Irish Government, encouraged Ukrainian troops and civilians to fight a war they could never win.

All it does is make more Ukrainians die.

They also encourage sanctions that don’t work but merely give the Russians more reason to keep pushing into Ukraine, while it brings economic collapse to the West.

There is only one way to prevent this war from getting worse, with more Ukrainian deaths and refugees, and that is a political agreement by all democracies called recognition of a central Ukraine. have everyone’s support.

And the West can then help Ukraine build its economy for the benefit of its people. There is no other solution than global misery of all kinds.

We should keep faith in God to stop the atrocities of the Russians

Circa 1972, the violence in the North was, at least, inhumanely disgraceful.

The everyday acts of alleged Christians have become unacceptable to the Irish media.

A very wise decision was made to reduce reporting and especially the visualizations. The reduction in media reporting has led to a significant reduction in street violence in the North.

Likewise, today Putin is glorified by miles of footage and mass media coverage of his unlikely war with Ukraine.

He fooled himself into thinking that he was the almighty king of the world. Combine this with the fact that the Russian Orthodox Church is encouraging him, thus abetting the mutilation and slaughter of innocents.

Personally, I think Putin is now such a deranged man that neither God nor man can influence his ideology.

Is there a lesson for the international media in the Irish media’s decision in 1972?

It can be much better for our mental health if we put our absolute trust in God to deal with Putin.

Instead, we should fervently pray for world leaders opposed to Putin and his group of power-hungry people.

Putting age categories in books may offend children

Having Having recently discovered that one of our children has dyslexia, it is heartbreaking and confusing for me to see the age categories on children’s books displayed in bookstores. Surely this is ageism and discrimination?

Rest assured after years of studying and honing at home every evening our struggling reader can read!

However, it breaks my heart to see the deflation on their faces when the age mark on the bookshelf is marked with their names.

Can we not sell children’s books by genre to appeal and encourage all readers?

Children, like adults, will find their own class and there is no need to be embarrassed when choosing a book they love.
