Putting the Russian Ukraine War in Context
The Russian Ukraine war is now is over a week long and for many who are trying to understand what it is all about that is proving difficult. The sheer scale of the relentless propaganda is astounding and the hate that is being encouraged and fueled for all things Russian is frightening. Once again as with the Covid scamdemic the way in which people have lapped up the fear porn and refused to carry out any level of critical thinking is scary.
In short the origins of this war go back to the promises and legal agreements at the end of the Cold War that NATO would not expand Eastward. Hint. It did.
This is basically a rerun of the Cuba missile crisis where after the US placed nuclear missiles in Turkey which was approximately 15 mins flight time to Moscow, that the Soviet Union then decided to retaliate and place missiles in Cuba on the US doorstep. During the resolution of the crisis it was agreed the US would remove the missiles from Turkey if the Russians removed them from Cuba but nobody was to mention the Turkey side of the bargain in public and so they didn't for 30 years.
Today Ukraine had been trying desperately to join NATO and much of the military infrastructure was being integrated into the NATO network. The next step would have been placement of missiles -purely for defense of course. Except, they would have been about 5 mins flight time to Moscow. Whilst flight time of a missile from Russia to the USA would be a good deal longer and this is why the Russians have a strong nuclear sub capability so they can pop up anywhere. Either way, this advantage to the US side would surely tempt some to think a quick first strike on Moscow could mean a nuclear war was winnable.
Whether you believe that was true or legit is irrelevant because the Russians believed it and saw it as an existential problem.
They had been asking nicely for decades now not to do this but they went ahead and did it.
Then you have the neo-nazi coup in Kiev in 2014 which was openly supported by the US & EU and the two separate wars against the newly recognized Eastern republics. And so on it goes.
