The art of Gaslighting-
"The most dangerous psychological mistake is the projection of the shadow on to others; this is the root of almost all conflicts."-Carl Jung
When people project, they identify their negative emotions, beliefs, traits or actions onto someone else. People project to protect themselves from uncomfortable inner conflict and anxiety.
Say your Zelensky and your going to blow up a dam in hopes of wiping out persons, maybe Russian soldiers, who are holding territory you want back.
You, Zelensky, could make the claim that these very same Russian soldiers are going to destroy a dam, washing themselves away in the massive flood that would ensue. Possibly drowning themselves and impeding their ability to continue to hold onto that territory.
The problem with the idea Zelensky is putting forth is that it serves no practical purpose for the Russian’s holding this land. It doesn’t serve their goals or aims.
HOWEVER… this would work very well to advance the Ukrainian propaganda machine as well as allow for Ukrainian forces to advance on the territory.
Zelensky has shown himself to be very adept at spin.
“We have information that Russians mined the Kakhovka hydroelectric power plant,” Zelensky said in an Oct. 20 address to the European Council.
The Kakhovka dam holds about 18 million cubic meters of water. If destroyed, over 80 settlements, including the regional capital Kherson, will be flooded, Zelensky said. The president added that an international observation mission is needed, as “hundreds of thousands of people may be affected.”
The Kakhovka Hydroelectric Station is located 70 kilometers northeast of the Russian-occupied Kherson. The city next to the dam, Nova Kakhovka, is also occupied by Russia.
Reality is the Ukrainians probably have the means to blow up this dam themselves The UK sent them the Remus submarine drone
I’m willing to bet the REMUS 100 or a similar device serve more than one purpose. It just makes sense. So, Ukraine can blow up the dam themselves. One way or another.
I’m no military expert that’s for sure. However if the information in the above video is accurate the Ukrainians can do a lot of damage by blowing up the dam.
Zelensky’s confession through projection fuels my suspicions.
