To the Editor:
I read the editorial by Mr. A. Diamataris about Biden’s worrying blunder and hope that Mr. Diamataris will forgive me for disagreeing with him. I will say it briefly because I think he did well. Almost everyone says what Biden said about Putin was a mistake, but someone had to be found to tell him bluntly, to his face. But no one did it because of fear, because of distraction, because of relationships, because of weakness, because of power, because of shame, because of behavior, because of interests. But Mr Biden told him he was a “war criminal” and that he had to leave where he is. What Biden said to him he did not say to him out of ignorance, nor out of naivety, nor out of superficiality, nor out of inexperience, nor out of selfishness, nor out of snobbery, nor out of humor, nor out of sloppiness, but he said it out of seriousness and because he is someone who can tell him so he will understand it and understand that he has to take this seriously and not just let him to say whatever he wants. And Biden did well after the pressure he received to take back what he said, when he came out and officially said that these are valid [statements] and he does not take them back. I, the ordinary citizen, one citizen, congratulate President Biden on his stance and responsibility.
