This was an easy one even before The Donald's praise of the Russian war monger in chief.

I support Russia, but not out of any liking of Putin. It's down to the fact that the West has been goading Russia for a couple of decades, eg by stationing NATO troops right on his border (Baltic States).

Imagine if Mexico invited Russia to station troops on the Texas border - see how long that would last...

Ukraine is unfortunately piggy in the middle. It is geographically in the wrong place. Putin has asked Ukraine to remain neutral without any NATO troops and NATO/Ukraine say they have every right to place their troops in Ukraine if invited by the Ukrainian government. Yes, of course they have the right. But don't be surprised if Russia reacts.

As for Crimea, this too is a geo issue. Russia needs unfettered and secure access through the Black Sea for its navy. Even a schoolboy could foretell problems if they don't have such access. Ukrainian Crimea is simply too risky to allow.

AFAIK, those are the only 2 demands that Putin has made (neutral Ukraine and Russian control of Crimea). Look at a globe and those demands are 100% understandable.

'The Battle of the Ants'
From Chapter 12 of "Walden, or Life in the Woods" (1854) by Henry David Thoreau

You only need sit still long enough in some attractive spot in the woods that all its inhabitants may exhibit themselves to you by turns.

I was witness to events of a less peaceful character. One day when I went out to my wood-pile, or rather my pile of stumps, I observed two large ants, the one red, the other much larger, nearly half an inch long, and black, fiercely contending with one another. Having once got hold they never let go, but struggled and wrestled and rolled on the chips incessantly. Looking farther, I was surprised to find that the chips were covered with such combatants, that it was not a duellum, but a bellum, a war between two races of ants, the red always pitted against the black, and frequently two red ones to one black. The legions of these Myrmidons covered all the hills and vales in my wood-yard, and the ground was already strewn with the dead and dying, both red and black. It was the only battle which I have ever witnessed, the only battle-field I ever trod while the battle was raging; internecine war; the red republicans on the one hand, and the black imperialists on the other. On every side they were engaged in deadly combat, yet without any noise that I could hear, and human soldiers never fought so resolutely.

Technically Ukraine, but I give as many fucks about their disputes as I do when random Middle Eastern countries have conflicts/wars.

I'm just pissed that the US economy has been doing so well, and now this. Biden has been very successful at helping our economy get back on track, but now this Russia/Ukraine conflict has caused all sorts of supply chain issues, inflation and increased gas prices.

The most confusing part is why now? Putin had his best friend in the Whitehouse for 4 years, and now he's going to try this with Biden in office? He's very dumb. Even Stephen King understands how stupid he is.

Image

Either way, Biden has a long history of dealing with these corrupt countries, including Ukraine, so I'm confident he has a good game plan and we can all relax.

I am sure the outcome will figure largely into CCP plans for Taiwan.
