I have been thinking more about why I would not want to die for Ukraine/
Here is the thing.
If Ukraine as a government was not the corrupt mess it was even before the revolution then I would likely be more sympathetic.
But as far as im concerned the situation is messy. Both sides are corrupt to the core. sure the Pro Russian side is worse but the Pro European side
is pretty rotten.
I see a intervention as messy and morally ambiguous as Vietnam. Sure North Vietnam was "worse" sure it was wrongfully invading south Vietnam to help
the pro communist rebels. But the republic of Vietnam was a pretty #ty government too with certain extreme members.
At the end of the day its a civil war.
Civil wars are messy
Best to keep out.
