@SJ82514812 @HiddenOG @RepThomasMassie Russia's decision to invade was 100% theirs. Ukraine is defending itself. But, we have the Monroe Doctrine, why? Why did the US assure NATO wouldn't move an inch to the east? Why did we ignore ethnic populations under attack in Ukr. while we ramped up weapons deliveries?
@stetzor @jimmy_dore @mattyglesias @abetterworld98 We've never been isolationist. We funded a coup in 2014 and armed Ukraine while eastern regions were under attack by govt and militia forces. "Cultural genocide" entails forcefully establishing a singular ethnic identity by banning minority languages, shutting down churches.
@JulianRoepcke "Historic failure"? Ukraine has gotten more support than any other country could ever dream of whether they are at war, sufferring starvation or any other crisis.
@Podolyak_M Ukraine is defending itself and good. But there are, and were. Lets not kid ourselves.

@dschatsky @GronFarm @emeriticus Chechnya wanted independence, but officially was part of Russia and still is. So it wasnt a "take-over" If you think they should have gotten independence, then I assume you feel the same about Crimea snd other regions in Ukraine that have been fighting for it the past 8 years.
