Nato summit: Ukraine on 'irreversible path' to membership
  • They would also be abusive, but currently the country projecting the most power in the world is undoubtedly the US. It's not good to have a single world power that is so dominant. Us peasants are given little goodies if the ruling class feels the need to compete instead of simply occupying the number one spot in the world uncontested.

  • Tell me, what do you think the CIA does? Are you aware of their history? Do you think they just sit around with their thumb up their ass now? Sorry to see that you consider applying basic logic a mental workout.

  • Experts: DOJ has "sufficient evidence" to probe Clarence Thomas — but Garland won't go for it
  • Garland is the weak-ass supreme court pick that was a result of "reaching across the aisle". I'm not sure why he was given the AG role, but democrats should pick people actually willing to fight for us. Democrats positioned themselves as "the only thing stopping fascism" but they don't even try.

  • "Rabidly defending" in this case being me simply stating that there is more to the situation than what the official western propaganda states and then having dozens of people like you jumping down my throat with angry replies and downvotes. My mistake for taking the time to respond to these people, thus giving me this "comment history". Russia is obviously in the wrong for invading Ukraine, but we need to examine why it did it so we can prevent something like that from happening in the future. Apparently there is no room for nuance for people like you, it's just good guys vs bad guys and you're obviously always the good guy.

    Speaking of havens, it's also people like you who shriek endlessly about the need to eradicate all "tankies" as you march towards your goal of turning the fediverse into reddit 2.0. Go ahead and block me, you obviously can't stand to see an opinion that doesn't totally agree with your own.

  • Think about when Russia annexed Crimea and then compare that to the date of the article I linked. Clearly there was more going on behind the scenes and it wasn't just a matter of Russia deciding one day to expand their territory.

  • Nato summit: Ukraine on 'irreversible path' to membership
  • There is no need to overtly expand into a neighbouring territory when you can already exert sufficient influence with "soft" power. Russia doesn't have the means to pay off Canada or Mexico to switch sides like the US does with Ukraine.

  • Because the US has the means to work behind the scenes. Invasions are a crude tool which can be avoided when you can simply infiltrate the country with agents paying people off from within the country. Of course, this requires a sophisticated intelligence apparatus and isn't possible for most countries.

  • The first link is people protesting that they want the government to do more of what Zelenskyy wants to do. Do you think he doesn't want to spend more on the war? As for the second link, Zelenskyy is extending his term as president through emergency war powers. None of what you posted answered the question. If there was an actual coup attempt on Zelenskyy, protestors would absolutely be shot at. Bloodless coups are the exception, not the rule.

  • In the time it took you to write that nonsense whiny post, you could've just read the article. I explained it to you anyway, in a post shorter than the one you typed, but you melted down anyway.

  • First you intentionally make the dumbest interpretation of how a situation can occur, then when I post an article that shows exactly how something like this goes down, you call me a name, refuse to read, and revel in your ignorance. A simple article is not a book. Operations to subvert politics in a country take many years, even decades, and the article talks about US operations to interfere in the politics of Ukraine. Do you think you can make the connection between that and what happened around a decade after that article was written or is this too difficult for you?

  • So going back to my original question:

    If a similar coup were to happen to Zelenskyy, do you think protestors would not be shot?

  • Nato summit: Ukraine on 'irreversible path' to membership
  • Shocking, protests and organizations that don't threaten the current power structure don't get violently cracked down. Just so you know, this isn't a thing specific to Ukrainian politics.

  • Nato summit: Ukraine on 'irreversible path' to membership
  • If a similar coup were to happen to Zelenskyy, do you think protestors would not be shot? Regardless, we'll see how long being a pro-west authoritarian state works. The west likes to pump and dump their supposed allies.

  • Nato summit: Ukraine on 'irreversible path' to membership
  • Not my fault you failed to understand the simple point that "the people" aren't a monolith and that narratives about what "the people" want aren't necessarily true. If, say, January 6th was a success, Trump and the rest of the fascists would be claiming that the storming of the capital was an expression of "the will of the people" to run the "democrat dictators out of office".

  • The people of Iraq also welcomed the US as liberators.

  • "Anyone who dares to say anything that disagrees with the official western line is a tankie" - you, basically. Anyway, all anyone has to do is look at the upvotes and downvotes to see who really is flooding .world and it's not the tankies like you claim with your victim complex post.

  • That's why the west calls it the "revolution of dignity" lol. Do you have any sense of self-awareness? Such dignity having the CIA up your ass to make your country more west-friendly.

  • Nato summit: Ukraine on 'irreversible path' to membership
  • The US is objectively more of an aggressor. Where's the NATO equivalent for fighting them off? Oh right, dismantled, stomped on, and now taking victory laps around it.

  • Nato summit: Ukraine on 'irreversible path' to membership
  • You're taking NATO at face value while ignoring the actions taken underground to pry apart any countries who aren't friendly to the west. Why would the west need to fund operations like this if it was such a voluntary and clearly beneficial relationship?: https://www.theguardian.com/world/2004/nov/26/ukraine.usa
