The US Government has Gone Mad.
Only 3 months ago, Biden announced that he would not send $10 million F16' to Ukraine. He has reversed this decision and is sending them anyway. The Ukraine military can't fly these highly technical and expensive war machines; thus, the Americans must train them. This is bad news for the world at large. In war terms, this is commonly called an 'exalation.' While Ukrainians are receiving billions in social aid and weapons of mass destruction, the US is considering cutting basic social welfare for American citizens because of the US's' debt ceiling.
This is utter madness.
The anti-Russian propaganda machine has been in full swing since at least 2015. Government officials and corporate stenographers have ensured the world that Russia is a bad actor and must be stopped. Anyone with half a brain and a little knowledge of Russia's history knows this to be propaganda.
NATO has surrounded Russia with military bases and deadly weapons in violation of the verbal treaty made sometime after WWII. NATO extended its forces eastwards anyway, putting Russia on high alert. What would the US do in a similar situation? Because the US is an economic war machine, the answer is an obvious one.
Last year many called the Ukraine war a proxy battle between the US and Russia, while Ukraine is a sacrificial pawn for American imperialist intentions. Back then, you'd be called a Putin puppet or Kremlin apologist. It's common knowledge that this is a proxy war between Russia and the US. From various leaks and now the promise of F16s, there is no doubt this is a proxy war.
When the legendary American journalist, Seymor Hersh, reported the destruction of the Nord Stream Pipeline was the act of the US., the neocons went silly/stupid, first blaming Russia for the sabotage (yea, right!) then claiming it was a "Gilligan's Island" operation, the world couldn't stop laughing and crying at the same time. At any other time, this would be an Act of War. Considering Hersh's reputation as an investigative reporter, there's no doubt that America conducted the operation.
What is the American government doing? They're putting the lives of millions of human beings at risk for absolute annihilation. And for what? Absolute economic hegemony?
Again, this is pure madness.
I'm not a "Kremlin apologist" but a human concerned about the planet's welfare.
To be crude, the US Government needs to get its collective head's out of its ass and push for peace - and the weapon manufacturers can all go to hell.
