No one cared about Ukraine three months ago.
Ukraine wasn’t in the top 50 issues that Americans care about.
The war has been going on there for eight years and 14,000 people had died in the conflict and “journalists” didn’t give a shit about dead civilians in eastern Ukraine.

I’ve seen so-called right wingers claiming that Azov Battalion are some kind of National Socialist group.
If you were National Socialist, would you use your own people as human shields and then open fire on them when they try to flee?
Uniting with NAZIS to defeat Putin in Ukraine is like uniting with ISIS to defeat Putin in Syria. It is a STUPID position to hold. Minorities will notice this contradiction

The western media is flat out lying to everyone. Azov is spread out in every Ukrainian battalion and they are using the citizens as human shields. This is after the Russian army defeated them in Mariupol and opened up humanitarian corridors allowing them to leave. pic.twitter.com/Juqm969MAT

Testimony from Ukraine citizens:
They were being forced to stay in their houses…were being used as human shields in Mariupol. pic.twitter.com/E8Mxr6qKWd

Some thoughts after 2 days of interviewing dozens of residents of #Mariupol who described to me the hell they escaped from. They were the lucky ones who were able to make it out in their own cars, but they left thousands behind with no electricity, gas, water and phone reception pic.twitter.com/zBdwlHhUq6

Understand: there is no story of “actually, the Ukrainians let them out finally.” Western media are just omitting the whole story of why the corridor is now open.
"Car convoys leaving #Mariupol. These are all civilians, who are now finally able to leave the city".
Only after the liberation of much of the city from neonazi #Azov battalion, green corridors began to function. pic.twitter.com/o3WxTONFXT

Understand: Ukraine is effectively a state that seceded from Russia when the Soviet Union collapsed.
On principle I favor the right of Ukraine to maintain sovereignty as an independent state. It is not my business to oppose that, if it is their wish.
However, I understand that the United States government has no interest in Ukrainian independence that isn’t a corrupt interest. Their “interest” in Ukrainian “democracy” is only a blunt tool to wield against Putin and other “rogue” nations that do not play by “our” (((their))) rules.
THEY HAVE ABSOLUTELY NO REAL INTEREST IN THE FREEDOM OR DEMOCRACY OF UKRAINIAN PEOPLE.
They would crush any and all attempts at American states attempting to secede and create an independent state (democratic or otherwise).
Their imperative is NOT democracy. Their imperative is forcing their vision of Globohomo on everyone else.
This is why I do not care about Ukraine.
My support in this case would equate to approval of American imperialism and globohomo. Russia might have imperial designs, but at least they don’t seem to be globohomo imperialism.
