The status quo I’m talking about is long gone, destroyed by supporting a coup by ultra nationalists because it suited our western goals to de-Russify and turn Ukraine to the west. Further supported by rejecting the Minsk agreements.
It’s sad it got to this point though when it never had to.
So, your criticizing the approach without providing a realistic alternative.
Your understanding of how this war started is skewed; Proven by the resistance of Ukrainians to the invasion.
If it was only the US that wished Ukraine to turn towards the west. Russia's invasion would have been welcomed by a majority of Ukrainians, right?
It was inevitable Putin would invade Ukraine. The response to annexation of Crimea was a huge blunder by the Obama administration and EU leaders were essentially cuckold to Russian gas. This emboldened Russia. And as I've said before there is blood on Merkel's hands. A further example of how appeasement does not work.
Europe had a peace dividend after 1991, but it made several nations naive. If you want peace, prepare for war.This post was edited by Prox1m1ty on Jun 4 2023 06:51am
