I would love to believe that Ukraine is a victim state, a freedom loving democracy whose sovereignty and sacred honor have been impugned by a war-crazed tyrannical nation. But I can’t.
Were it not for U.S./NATO meddling, Ukraine and Russia could have resolved their differences long ago. And were it not for U.S./NATO support, Ukraine would not now be fighting a grinding battle it cannot win.
I get the impulse of good-hearted people who want to stand up for Ukraine. I even get wanting to call Russia an Evil Empire.
What I don’t get is people who want to stand up for Ukraine until every Ukrainian is dead or raped. And I don’t get being willing to endure the consequences to our own people and to our friends that must occur when we act with hatred toward a peer nation.
Eschew the MSM propaganda. End the war in Ukraine.
