And the Blessed One addressed the bhikkhus, saying: "Behold now, bhikkhus, I exhort you: All compounded things are subject to vanish. Strive with earnestness!"

This was the last word of the Tathagata.

The sutta you purport to quote from is not MN 11 but SN 22.78.
Thank you for the correction.

“Then, bhikkhus, when those devas who are long-lived, beautiful, abounding in happiness, dwelling for a long time in lofty palaces, hear the Tathagata’s teaching of the Dhamma, they are for the most part filled with fear, a sense of urgency, and terror, saying: ‘It seems, sir, that we are impermanent, though we thought ourselves permanent; it seems, sir, that we are unstable, though we thought ourselves stable; it seems, sir, that we are noneternal, though we thought ourselves eternal. It seems, sir, that we are impermanent, unstable, noneternal, included within identity.’ So powerful, bhikkhus, is the Tathagata over this world together with its devas, so majestic and mighty.”—SN 22.78

Putin does not accept impermanence, he fails to accept Russia’s decline from its position as a great eighteenth century empire, therefore he must be brought to 21st century reality.

He is going through the same process as with North Korea.

Remember the "Fire and fury"?

Remember the "I hope we can be friends some day"?

See what direction NK/US relations are going now? Expect to see the same with Russia.

Metta,

Senator Chris Murpy just smashed the reddit to pieces. He got 1470 upvotes in just 5 hours while Trump tweet got just 600 in a whole day:
Senator Chris Murphy - "Let me get this straight: we’re going to bomb Syria because Assad attacked civilians, but next door in Yemen we are eagerly participating in a bombing campaign that has killed thousands of civilians?"

US of A are impermanent, too. And they should take that into consideration.

Their "good karma" of liberating the world from evil might come back at them somehow.

The Iranians, and Syrians have already evacuated all air bases and such so that the Americans can make there little TV sound bite with a few bombs.

It won’t make any difference.

They go back after the show is over.

Western politicians are probably testing the general Western public for protests; so to measure the degree of their absolute power over the hoodwinked public. Based on the responses at least on Dhammawheel the totalitarian politicians are doing very well. Most (but not all) posters here appear excited about war, in favour of war, think this is some type of "business deal" or think: "As long as it doesn't affect me then is OK". Below are the people the Western governments are trusting & seeking to protect; the same ideology that allegedly did 9/11.






As this video shows, the war supporters here are supporting Wahabbi ("Islamic") radicals & fundamentalists. :roll:

There is always an official executioner. If you try to take his place, It is like trying to be a master carpenter and cutting wood. If you try to cut wood like a master carpenter, you will only hurt your hand.

Ya, I remember one of the USA-supported rebel groups captured a Syrian government soldier, and cut out his heart and ate it, and then posted it on youtube.

The "opposition" are a coalition of radicals & mercenaries from over 30 nations. There is no civil war and no rebels. Just an orchestrated regime change agenda that has so far failed & cost lots of money. The Syrian govt has been unbelievably civil, trying to minimize war. 95% of East Ghouta was liberated. It is ridiculous the Syrian govt would use chemicals. It was obviously the "rebels'; who probably killed captives.








Hundreds of women paraded in cages by rebel groups in Damascus as human shields

Is there a reason somebody just didn't assassinate or targeted-strike President Assad? I guess maybe his movements are secret...
