I have just replied to @Alienbeing that the reason for Russia's response is due to the American war criminals who have already caused the deaths of millions around the world & continue to cause death & inhumane illness & mutation in the Ukraine, Korea, Vietnam, Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Serbia, Bosnia, Palestine, Venezuela, et al. -[worldfuturefund.org]
The ongoing long term criminal action is of course through America's stupidity in causing the deaths & defects through the inhuman use of weapons including depleted uranium, agent orange, withholding life saving medicines & techniques through political sanctions, uncleared landmines, sabotage, causing civil unrest, unchecked illegal CIA action, unneccessary opposition to state health services in order to favour & promote ridiculously expensive profiteering American & British insurance companies.
You & yours have been & continue to be war criminals promulgating civil disturbance, murder, genocide and misery around the world.
The world is not laughing at me . . It is starting to realise that the world will be a better place without the paranoia & examples set by the likes of you who have directly caused or contributed to far more deaths than Putin has until now. You are the lowest stupid* scum.
The world's contempt of American behaviour grows exponentially each day.
There have been no wars prosecuted by America since WWII. One and all, they've been UNCONSTITUTIONAL military adventures, directed and funded directly (and indirectly into pockets of legislators by the military-industrial complex) by a congressional 'wink and nod'. But NEVER declared wars. Another Constitutional dodge has been negotiation of 'DEALS' by the executive branch/Department of State and THEIR well heeled 'Johns' in the military-industrial complex, instead of ratifying them as required constitutionally for 'treaties'. All they've done is change the name to deals, just like they changed the name war to 'police action' for Korea, setting a trend of sacrificing Americas children for the next several generations on the altars of war gods. 'The People' are no longer self-governing; not for my entire lifetime have they been self-governing.
My initial response was to ask whether you are making false equivocations? It's only a question, but it still stands. However, my second response was to check whether I could find any confirmation of your viewpoint from any sources I would consider credible. I hate to admit it, but I found such comfirmation in a video featuring Noam Chomsky. Emotionally I am still with Ukraine, but intellectually the picture is muddy.
You continue to try to justify Russia's invasion of another country by saying "so what, other countries invaded a neighboring country in the past".
That is the worst justification one can imagine. It is exactly like saying "murder is OK because others have been murdered".
“In England, the system is benign and the people are hostile. In America, the people are friendly and the system is brutal!”.
Today unfortunately in both cases the people are brain washed to love and even demand brutality, even at their own expense because they see it as a sign of "strong" leadership and their economically driven leaders are all to happy to oblige the illusion.
This is why Trumps so admired Putin and wished to emulate him, and Vlad was all to please to return the compliment.
All wars are unjust. Wail America invades all over the world , as they call it, policing or call themselves heroes of war. When Russia does it, it's hell on earth or it's world war three. Now Russian trees, dogs and boats are banned. It's a very deep mass hysteria, the people have been programmed or endocrirnated for decades
My response to anyone stating whataboutism is :
"whataboutism" an expression used to ignore uncomfortable reality. The reality is that USA has proclaimed that it is the pre-eminent world leader who expects the rest of the world to be like it - fucked up, inhumane & criminal.
Now you complain because Russia has followed the US provocation & example.
Such bitching is called hypocrisy & false argument in attempting indoctrination.
