Putin assures us that those Ukrainian civilians who were shot in the back were all evil Nazis. And the Russian soldiers shooting them in the back were actually the good guys. And I know it is true because Tucker Carlson, Marjorie Taylor Greene and EffetePoser say it is.

I wonder how many of their buddies the Ukrainian's shot in the back.

We won't see that video. I doesn't fit the narrative of peace loving plucky Ukraine. Or how many tank crews burned alive while the Ukrainian's watched and laughed.

War is hell. That's why it should end as fast as possible.

The Ukrainian leadership needs to talk to the Russians.

The US State Department wants these kinds of massacres to continue on both sides.

They are the Real Demons from Hell.

Both sides are ------- countries. We have no business even choosing sides. Let em' fight it out. If we stopped feeding the war,Ukraine stands a good chance just with what we've already given them.

It's too obviously a proxy war. The Russians are gonna do something really stupid. Trust that. They're making very dangerous noises that nobody seems to be listening to.

Radioactive isotopes don't stay put. Agriculture would be damaged through out Europe. Famine and unknown consequences of a nuclear detonation would cause unbelievable loss of life and productivity.

But the Ukraine could maybe bleed Russia a little more.

The US State Dept. Calls that "acceptable".

You only want to help Zelinsky. Are you a Zelinsky ball washer?

I just don't see an American interest,in this war. What compelling interest do we have in wether the Ukraine is denazified or not?

Did we care about Iran when Iraq invaded? No,the US sent weapons and aid to Iraq to prolong the war and increase the deaths. Like now,the US State Dept. Only wanted to make the war longer and more lethal.

We are not helping the Ukraine. Any more than arming Saddam to kill the Iranians was "helping" him.

How long before we turn on the Ukrainian's like we did on the Iraqis?

How long until we "shock and awe" them for not being good puppets?

The free money and weapons aren't free. They have to dance to our tune now. And if they don't, We Regime change them.

Wrong.

"If we stopped feeding the war,Ukraine stands a good chance just with what we've already given them."

Wrong.

"It's too obviously a proxy war."

Wrong. Not obvious enough apparently. Putin should have been aware of this possibility before he ever started a war.

If Putin uses nukes then that's all on Putin. He should have realized all of this before he ever started this war. It's a no win situation for him so he pushes the civilization reset button?

Thankfully you have no say in the matter and can only whine about Putin's inevitable losses. Hopefully Russians will take matters in their own hands before Putin loses it completely.

Dude, did you care at all when Iran got invaded by Iraq?

What's different about this? Both countries are full of --------.

Why did the"free world" support the AGGRESSOR in that war? Saddam received millions of dollars in lethal aid while he gassed his own people. I didn't see any of the hoopla we have now about THAT.

The US position then was to encourage and arm the aggressor with WMD, he even used gas on civilians but we were just fine with that.

What's different now is these are White Christians being killed.

Stick your Sanctimony up your ass, all our "principles" about Aggression depend on who's doing it. Not the aggression itself.

We invaded Iraq when Saddam became a liability,We waged an illegal and aggressive war on our own "puppet" when he stopped serving our ends.

The same thing could easily happen to the Ukraine if the Russian Sympathizers there took control of the government.

America is not helping by intervening.

More would be alive today if we didn't. Think about that. We want a Military outcome that favors our "interests". Civilian deaths are just grist for the propaganda mill. If they really cared about that they would be negotiating, not sending bazookas and guided missiles.

Both statements are true. Putin made a huge and unforgivable error by invading. Feeding the war is equally a huge and unforgivable error.

Left to themselves nobody knows how this would have played out.

Most likely the Ukraine would have surrendered territory in the east.

They probably will anyway. The difference is the shooting and shelling would be over quickly and there would be fewer people killed.

Also the risk of wider war and nuclear involvement would be nil.

As it stands now.I think the US will be fighting Russia directly by late summer. NATO is a dinosaur. They won't help much. It will be open war by nuclear armed enemies.

Only because of American hypocrisy about aggressive war. In the absence of that precedent I would be far more inclined to be more upset about it.

If American hands were clean. If Iraq had never happened. I would be more likely to censure Putin.

But now,after everything that's happened in the last 30 years.

This is just the flavor of the month.

Great argument. Invective. No substance. Ukraine has NO strategic American interest. It's a gratuitous waste of American resources to feed a foreign war the outcome of which is of no real consequences here. Meddling never makes things better. If there were no entangling alliances in Europe in 1914 the first world war would have been a small regional Balkan war.

Instead millions died for nothing. Only to seed the second world war that killed tens of millions.

I guess now we get the third world war.

Hundreds of millions dead?

For the Donbass?............

Freedom of speech ------------. Some people, Rcade included apparently, think free discourse is better than an echo chamber of propaganda. If you can't stand dissent I suggest you go to Russia or the Ukraine,both sides over there won't tolerate dissent.

Then you could cheer for the dear leader without have to hear any catcalls or disruption.

It's amazing how people who call themselves freedom loving want to shut up anything they don't agree with.

Find a nice echo chamber, there won't be any micro aggressions to upset you there.

That's why involvement by outsiders is not productive. If the Ukraine wins, how long before we attack them for not being a good puppet like we did Iraq?

How about Japan. They rolled over on being Nuked.

Because they didn't have any.

Nukes are the big game changer. They have rendered NATO impotent against Russian aggression.

Maybe we should have left the atomic genie in the bottle and fought the Japanese fair and square without our little nuclear friends.

Now everybody is getting them. Even people like Putin.

This war has set back nuclear arms control for decades.

People see NATO afraid and want one too.

Russian aggression has proven to be totally pathetic because the rest of the world helped ukraine resist WITHOUT NUKES.

Your logic is ONCE YOU HAVE NUKES YOU CAN DO WHATEVER YOU WANT.

Saying we shouldnt have used them to end WW2 is like dems saying we shouldnt kill the filibuster to save democracy. Your more evil enemy will use the nuke/kill the fillibuster the first time it suits them.

So getting stronger than ever with countries lining up begging to join is being "rendered impotent" to you ?

You are about as knowledgeable as a bucket of spit.

Yeah you and your butt buddy pooty poot go ahead believe that NATO is "impotent".

Shout it from the rooftops. Drive around town with a big Trumpy flag with a loud speaker shouting your lies and rolling coal on electric cars. You know ... Like insurrectionists like to do.

Meanwhile Ukrainians will continue to bury your friends, Russian terrorists invading their lands, with advanced NATO weapons and supplies. NATO weapons supplied by NATO from those so called "impotent" NATO countries that will continue to ship those weapons unabated from NATO countries into Ukraine regardless of whatever you and pooty poot believe or cry about.

Yup. You got NATO shaking in their boots Bob.

Russia is criminally insane here. Invading without real immediate threat.

America is too hypocritical about war and Militarism to be sanctimonious about aggressive war.

The UN should be brokering a peace accord. NATO should stay back and let the diplomats do their thing.

If the US can't help with the negotiations they should at least stay the ---- out the real dealmaking.

Give Zelinsky the power to ease sanctions in exchange for a ceasefire and line stabilization.

As it stands now it seems the US is running the show with Zelinsky as a figurehead.
