Yes Rikkitic,  
I guess everyone was seeing that time, greater economic ties, mutual benefits of peace would suffice.

 

He does end the article with following.
""
A miracle defender of Christianity or the most evil man? Well, it is Ukrainian Christians among others whom he is now slaughtering indiscriminately and he has little understanding of Jesus, who said “blessed are the peacemakers”.

 

No, this is a power vision threaded through with nationalistic Christian theology. And evil is the right word when a leader uses religion to justify in God’s name invasion, violence and annihilation.

Americans going to fight with Ukraine

What you mean is, many citizens not from Ukraine are going to fight with Ukraine.

 

You are again pushing the boundary of fact. 

 

What if I went to fight with Ukraine, does that mean Kiwis are going to fight with Ukraine??

If you're a Kiwi, then yes, I'd say there would be Kiwi's fighting with Ukraine.

Can you please give this topic the seriousness it deserves?

 

There have been many conflicts over the years. This one is different. Its the start of Cold War 2.0 with China added in, or its the pushback of it.

 

Its a turning point, or the stop of that turning point

Apparently there are enough Canadians to have their own battalion. 
However that does not say they don't have family or other connection to Ukraine.
Given long running problems have had Ukrainians immigrating for many years.

 

There was some concern about other people not really understanding what they are getting into.
A brit who has served in Afghanistan and was in Ukraine was interviewed saying that
Anyone, who had never been in a 'war zone', should think again.

 

Its undoubtedly a very nasty war on the ground with Hospitals, Maternity Hospitals and such not off limits.
WHO has confirmed 19 health facilities destroyed so far in UKR.
If you are a soldier rather than a baby, I guess you can expect even less mercy.

 

Not humanities best moments. 
Especially as heads of Russian Orthodox Church fail to send Putin a very direct message to desist.
Rather encouraging the whole thing about returning the true faith to the land ?

Apparently they have a different answer to question of what would Jesus do.

Its shocking. Although I wouldn't call it a humanity bad moment. One person isnt humanity. Same as a previous person who was also governed by an emotional obsession. 

 

In summary Putin is being brutal. News tells us this is normal for him, same playbook, been done before. His ace cards are his oil, and his nuclear weaponry. So, he has free reign. A Youtube detailed clip suggested that an overall takeover of Ukraine cannot happen due to the size and the resistance, he will take the North, East and South, including Kviv, Kharkiv and Odessa, and the water border. Redraw the boundaries, job done. Its over, remove the sanctions.. If the West continues to allow him, so be it. Sanctions must stay. Whats left of Ukraine needs to be added to NATO. Russia'a economy can shrivel up. Then Putin can be backed into a corner militarily, economically, and politically, he can answer to his people. A brit women had a speech tonight, ending in Putin must fail, that has to be the endgame here.

 

Russia will be screwed

kingdragonfly: Washington Post: Trump’s effort to rewrite history on his support of NATO and Ukraine

Only days ago, Trump lauded Russian President Vladimir Putin as “very savvy” for making a “genius” move by declaring two regions of eastern Ukraine as independent states and dispatching Russian armed forces to seize them. “Putin declares it as independent. Oh, that’s wonderful,” Trump said Feb. 22 on the “Clay Travis and Buck Sexton” show, referring to the troops as “the strongest peace force I’ve ever seen.”

Of course, it turns out that Putin launched an invasion of all of Ukraine. With Ukraine putting up a gallant fight and the United States and its allies imposing harsh sanctions on Russia, Trump on Monday issued a defensive statement repeating falsehoods he regularly made during his presidency.

With Trump, it’s hard to know if he’s willfully ignorant or if he has simply swallowed his own spin. Far from being a savior of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, he frequently sought to undermine it. Here’s a quick guide to what’s wrong or misleading in his statement.

“It was me, as President of the United States, that got delinquent NATO members to start paying their dues, which amounted to hundreds of billions of dollars.”

 

I hear Trump might be seeking re-election next term and that if he gets in (unlikely imho) US focus could shift to China, leaving the EU more or less facing Russia alone.

 

America apparently dropped the Two Front War doctrine in 2012.

 

Admittedly the prospect of EU without USA seems far less scary following the underwhelming performance of Russian forces and Germany's rearmament U-Turn.  :)

 

 

 

I read (WP possibly?) Biden's one term tenure and Trump possibly running again factored into Scholz's decision to rearm.
