International Peace Day

David Swanson does a good job explaining what it means to be against the war in Ukraine without thinking that either NATO or Russia are innocent victims.

I oppose all of the horrible killing and destruction in Ukraine, fully aware of the imperialistic history of Russia and of the fact that NATO expansion predictably and intentionally led to this war, disgusted that peace activists in Russia are locked up and sickened that they are so effectively ignored in the US that it is not needed, except for high profile whistleblowers.

  1. “Oh my God, he’s saying he might use nukes!” Yeah that’s what happens when you start a war with a fucking nuclear-armed nation, dipshit. That’s why you’re a fucking moron for yelling at those of us who’ve been calling for de-escalation and detente. Change how you are. Stop cheerleading this insane game of nuclear chicken and begin calling for de-escalation.

    It’s so crazy how people pretend the US wouldn’t use nukes in response to the exact same type of attacks that Putin is warning against.
