So,,,, Russia has invaded Ukraine and what,,, "they (Ukraine) can decide their own future". OK they want to be left alone by Russia. How does that work ? What is Russia going to do, go door to door looking for "the element" of the country that wants to kill Russians ?
When the US invaded Iraq, they were not there to grab land.

They were there to remove a threat to their country.

Ukraine has not stated they want to be "left alone by Russia" - they have stated that they want to become hostile towards Russia and point guns at them.

Russia will not accept that juts like you wont accept your neighbor pointing a gun at your house.

So, Ukrainians have been conducting terrorist attacks in Russia ?


Yes.

The car bomb that killed Daria Dugina was planted by Ukrainian terrorists in Moscow.

Ukraine at first denied the claim and said that "Ukraine didn't do that only terrorist states like Russia do that".

Then this week, the US put the blame on the car bomb on Ukraine.

Then this week, the Ukrainians used a car bomb to blow up a civilian bridge. The bridge bomb was not to completely disable the bridge - but to "send a message to Moscow" - which is what ISIS and Al Qaeda do.

Has anyone entertained the idea Ukraine is striking their own cities to create a false flag cause or to paint Russia in a bad light?
Professor Sachs: "Ukraine Needs To Stop Bombing Nuclear Power Plant And Blaming It On Russia"

Professor Jeffrey Sachs stated Sunday that the U.S. should be demanding that Ukraine stops shelling the Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant and blaming it on Russia, otherwise the world will face a nuclear armageddon on two fronts.

“It is almost surely Ukraine shelling the power plant and we can’t bring ourselves to express a simple truth and that hurts because they continue to shell the power plant with impunity,” Sachs further declared.

“We don’t know ever with our government what is really going on because they don’t tell the truth,” he further warned, adding “That just goes with the business of government, the way that it is viewed in Washington.”

It's hard to believe there are people who would go on about escaping communism and yet let themselves be so easily fooled by a totalitarian dictator such as Putin

Such simplifications won't do anyone any justice. It's way more complicated than that. Ukrainian government has a lot of blood on its hands in this.
Oh, I see. So complicated that you can't say "Yes" or "No" that Russia invaded Ukraine ? Boy, that's complicated. Hmm

That's because I experienced communism with own skin, and I can tell you with confidence that nowadays Russia is nowhere near that.

You know, it just seems like you just want to be contrary.

(question) "Do you agree Russia invaded Ukraine ?" (answer) "When the US invaded Iraq, they were not there to grab land."

I guess you just don't want or can't answer the question.

My question regarding Ukraine conducting terrorist attacks in Russian was addressing your statement: "Every speech Putin is gave about Ukraine in the last 8 months he is always said Ukraine can decide their own future he's just looking to remove the elements of the country that want to kill Russians."

In other words did Russia invade Ukraine in retaliation for terrorist attack BEFORE Russia invaded Ukraine. The car bomb and the bridge were after the Russian invasion,,, oh sorry the Russian "military operation" in Ukraine.

The car bomb appears to be directed at Aleksandr Dugin, the father of the woman killed, she was operating his vehicle. He is apparently a consultant of Putin's. Unlike Russia that has never bombed Ukraine hospitals, schools, private residents, or murdered or tortured anyone, Ukraine has killed an innocent civilian.

A civilian bridge ? Yikes, that's bad. Was never used for moving supplies or weapons for the Russian invaders ? Who was the civilian built the bridge (must have been real rich eh ?) ? So in war the combatants shouldn't destroy bridges ? Well unless they are military bridges, so like Bailey bridges or pontoon bridges ????

Oh, I think if they could have blown the bridge to smithereens they would have. That would have sent a bigger msg to Russia. But hey, Russia is relatliating ! Bombing civilians. You do know that doesn't serve any military purpose, don't you ?

Military attacks during war, are not terrorist attacks, they can be "war crimes" if certain atrocities are committed,,, you know like the Russian soldier have done, wholesale. Comparing the attack on the bridge to ISIS or Al Qaeda is ridiculous.

Did Soviets invade a NATO member in 1962? And what was the US response?

I can smell propaganda from miles away. And the stench of it coming from NATO Russia-haters, and their puppet states is overwhelming.

I’m talking about the Cuban missile crisis of 1962. Why would nowadays Russia accept something on its borders, so hostile to its security, what the US wouldn’t back then?

Cuba has never been a NATO country, Russia was invited by Fidel Castro.
