Ukraine, The Easy Way Out
If the United States gives weapons to Ukraine to defend itself against Russia it is almost certain that most of these weapons will be sold on the black market to enrich the high level officials of Ukraine. Some of these weapons could end up in Russia or in the hands of terrorists who will use them against us. It is much better to give them money; we could just wire it into the President’s Swiss bank account. He could then distribute the money to his cronies and mistresses.
Every life lost over the current situation in Ukraine is sadly wasted. It is easy to understand why Ukrainian soldiers would desert in large numbers if the war escalated. If Russia takes the entire Ukraine the average person will not see much difference in their lives, they will still be living under a corrupt and incompetent government and would not even need to learn a new language. The plan outlined below is the best solution for all.
It is quite possible that Putin will want more when he sees how easy the Ukraine and the West capitulated. Just look what happened in Crimea. Russia took it without any resistance and was not satisfied.
The next target would seem to be Belarus. However, we need to convince Putin that his next target should be a Western European country which has been heavily impacted by immigration. I recommend either France, Germany or the UK. The fact that these lands are not contiguous is not important and may make the plan more acceptable.
I am certain that many of the citizens of these countries would not object to a Russian annexation if Russia agrees to similar terms listed above for Ukraine. Russia would need to wait 2 years so that the world can see what happens in the former Ukraine. If the transition is smooth and there is a slight decrease in crime and corruption I am sure that the Western Europeans would be anxious to join Russia given their alternative. The benefits to Western countries with large immigrant populations would be much greater than for Ukraine. Each of the three countries could hold a special election to determine how many citizens want to join Russia. The country with the greatest number of votes for Russian annexation would be designated as the next target for Russian expansion.
If this works well there would be no reason to stop. However, before allowing Russia to take over the next Western European country, there would again need to be at least a 2 year to 5 year waiting period to be sure that Russia will keep its promises. The most important promise being the removal of immigrants. These immigrants came without the consent of the majority of the citizens and therefore Russia could be seen as restoring order to Western Europe. If things go very well after this second annexation the other Western countries will be anxious to become part of Russia.
Perhaps by the year 2050 all of Europe would belong to Russia and be free of unwanted occupying populations. A few more Russians can be tolerated, but no large scale alien immigration. Perhaps ultimately the Western culture of liberty and prosperity will spread to Russia itself.
On the other hand, if Russia takes Ukraine and arrogantly violates peoples natural rights or if the West decides to draw the line and get involved militarily to prevent Russian expansion, it could develop into a major war in which millions would die. If there is such a war, native Europeans of military age should not waste their lives defending a continent in which they have no future. Only immigrants and their descendants have a reason to fight in such a war; the Europe of the future belongs to them. Under such a scenario native Europeans should just leave and find a new home to live out their lives watching their former homeland descend into chaos.
