85728 - Transcription: Podcast With US #142: The protection of democracies against barbarity

N. Lygeros

The words of the President of the United States are clear and efficient. When Joe Biden said that the terror and tyranny of Hamas and Putin represent different threats which is indeed the truth, but both want to completely annihilate a neighboring democracy, this is the point which is crucial. They don’t want to defeat another country, another democracy. They just want to destroy this and they want to erase their presence. So, for us the things are clear and easy. It’s our duty to protect those democracies against the terror, against the tyranny and this message has to be done in this way because now it’s obvious that the target is just the destruction. We are not talking about the compromise, we are not talking about a negotiation. We are talking about a total war. In this new and big chessboard with many players, we have to be in a coherent way on a strategic mix to try to combinate all our tools, our weapons, our thoughts to save innocent people, to save democracies because if we don’t do that, we’ll be in fact the testimony of the win, of the victory of tyranny and terror. We have to do that and with this message everything is clear and we have to do it now. That’s why it was so important to listen to that.
