Appeasing Putin jeopardizes Ukrainian sovereignty and undermines the liberal international order.
Exactly. How anyone can reasonably disagree with this is beyond me. Perhaps only those who forget the histories of both Putin and other dictators.
"the Ukrainian parliament adopted a “non-bloc” resolution in 2010. In 2014 Ukraine was officially a neutral state, and Kyiv did not have any intention to join NATO. But this clearly didn’t diminish Putin’s ambitions to divide and rule Ukraine. Russia went ahead with its military aggression and annexed Crimea."
This is beyond dishonest. You left out what happened in 2014, when the US helped overthrow that democratically elected neutral government to install a pro Western one. That's when Putin annexed the Crimea.
The rest of the article is glib neocon warlust and juvenile good and evil fantasies.
If we fight Russia over the Ukraine, why would nukes not be exchanged, like we feared they would be during the Cold War?
The West is soft, decadent, corrupt, and worse hates itself. A set of societies where thinking that women and men are actually different is "unworthy of respect in a democratic society" is finished.
We should send all the TRAs to the Ukraine / Russia border. They can teach the Russians about the importance of Zhe, Zir, and other personal pronouns. No doubt, Putin will call back the Russian army immediately.
The US can't / won't defend its own borders... But the border between Russia and the Ukraine is worth any amount of American blood and treasure... No thanks.
Hi Natia, can you please share the source of the casualty statistics you mention in "Russia launched a bigger military offensive with the annexation of Crimea in 2014, which took the lives of over 13,000 Ukrainians. "? Thank you
