The Turkish attacks in Syria are really awkward for NATO. A major talking point we hear constantly in the context of the Ukraine war is the sanctity of NATO while one of its key members ethnically cleanses Kurds and sides with jihadists against them.
The lessons are the opposite; thank goodness neither Ukraine nor Georgia is in NATO.
Because of constructivism. This IR theory outperforms both realism and liberalism on this issue. It’s the only way to explain why Democrats went from indifference about Russia invading Ukraine to planting Ukraine flags in their gardens.

I wonder if Obama wishes he armed Ukraine instead of Al Qaeda.
Defense Department explicitly comparing Russia-Ukraine to China-Taiwan: “Beijing, like Moscow, seeks a world where might makes right, where disputes are resolved by force, and where autocrats can stamp out the flame of freedom.” https://t.co/XdJVnTU6n6
@EHunterChristie @bertina_alec What a weird response. You should be criticizing Ukraine and our NATO ally Poland for making false, escalatory, dangerous claims about Russia—not those who draw attention to them and help set the factual record straight. The fact you were a former NATO official hurts your stance.
@bertina_alec What we know for sure is Ukraine presented an extremely sensitive intelligence matter as fact before there was strong evidence.
@bertina_alec Even if Ukraine believed it had 100% certainty that it was a Russian attack (when the US government said the evidence did not exist for that claim) then that makes Ukraine a purveyor or reckless misinformation that puts America at risk.
Zelensky’s reckless disinformation about the Polish attack is another reason why Ukraine should not even be considered for NATO membership.
