PETERS – Now we see the true face of tyranny

ALL THOSE PROTESTERS crying “Tyranny!” should feel pretty sheepish right about now.

The occupiers who said they were willing to die to fight a government they felt was acting in an authoritarian manner are now being shown what dying for your way of life actually looks like.

It looks like Ukraine, where citizens going about their daily lives awoke to a full-scale Russian invasion Thursday.

This type of unprovoked military action by one nation against another hasn’t been seen since World War II.

And what we have seen this week is just the beginning.

  1. It’s time for another Papineau Battalion that went to Spain in 1936 to fight the Fascists.

  2. I was laughing at all those “truckers” clinging to the “tyranny” slogans and chants…now you know why.
    Now you know why I did not and will not support those preposterous buffoons.
    On another note, what’s happening in Ukraine right now is very upsetting and heartbreaking. And the dreadful consequences of these events will be felt for a long time.
