First of all, even before the fighting broke out, the United States had intentionally hyped up tensions between Russia and Ukraine instead of pooling efforts to smooth things over.


How so?



And now with NATO heavily arming Ukraine,....


So that they can defend themselves against a brutal invasion from a tyrannical neighbour.
If Russia hadn't invaded then no-one would have had to send them so many arms....pretty obvious.



US-led west continues to heavily arm Ukraine, Russia continues to step up the assault till nothing left of Ukraine.


So, you give Russia a pass for the invasion and the killing and lay the blame squarely at the feet of the US who have in this instance killed no-one?
Bizarro.



I’d also feel better if there were less double standards going around the world,....


So would I....but we aren't talking about the rest of the world here, we're talking about Ukraine.



.... plenty of other nations need military aid too. But this coalition of NATO and US are no where to be seen right now:


NATO and US coalition?
USA is part of NATO.

And if NATO gets involved in conflicts outside of areas directly concerning them they are then accused of intervening in other countries business, effecting regime change, bullying, blah blah blah.
Damned if they do.....damned if they don't.



“the secretary general of the Norwegian Refugee Council. "The people of Yemen need the same level of support and solidarity that we’ve seen for the people of Ukraine” source: original.antiwar.com...


The US and UK's support of Saudi Arabia is an absolute #ing disgrace and a shame on both nations.
But that has # all to do with Russia invading Ukraine.



All life is equal but here Yemen has 233K deaths vs Ukraine 1k deaths. And no assistance from NATO.


Yes.☝

Start a thread about Yemen and Saudi Arabia and I'll gladly contribute.

I think it would depend. The type of chemical weapons used and its impact - how many soldiers (Russian/Russian allies were killed / injured and was there collateral damage (civilian casualties).

I would imagine, based on the above outcomes, that it would be situation specific. With that said the ICC cannot prosecute anyone unless the person in question that's charged is before the court (the ICC forbids trials in absentia).

Locally (in this case Ukrainian law) the government could charge people for violating any laws on the books (however I dont see that as a possibility). The other thing to keep in mind is what was the status of civil law at the time. From what I have seen Ukraine still has martial law declared in parts of the country / cities. I have no idea how the Ukrainian military justice systems works (tribunals) or their civil-criminal law (civilian courts).

In short is it possible for people to be charged with war crimes - yes
Would a Ukrainian citizen (military / civilian) be charged - in my opinion no
Would a war crimes trial against Ukrainian nationals actually be held - in my opinion no.

I think it would be like a person defending themselves (in the US). Homicide / Murder is a felony however the prosecuting attorney would look at all the facts (mitigating / aggravating) before charging a person. If it meets the criteria for self defense then the person wont be charged.

As such take everything as a possibility and NOT as absolute truth.

The 'story' about the russian commander being killed by his own troops would count for roughly 500 of russia's absurd 1351 claim.

The Western view is that the Kremlin is supposed to understand and accept that the alliance’s activities, among them war games replete with American tanks staged in nearby Baltic states and rockets stationed in Poland and Romania – which the U.S. says are aimed at Iran – in no way present a threat to Russian security.


Source: www.google.com... sia-177999

Yeah if your IQ is below 75, you would fall for the claim that US missiles in Poland are aimed at Containing the Iranian threat. MHmmm sure. Of course...


Open Google maps, it’s free.. and explain how Placing missiles in Poland are aimed at Iran who don’t even have the missile capability for that type of coverage today let alone back in 2011 when those missiles got deployed. And even if it had a few missiles, why would it use them against Europe?

Again, smoke and mirrors... its 75 miles from Russia so while USA and NATO claim they are not a threat to Russia, I maintain that they are perceived as a threat by Russia and rightly so.

Let’s see what the following Notable, high ranking, US foreign policy experts think about the situation and ignore a bystander such as myself:


CIA director, William J. Burns, has been warning about the provocative effect of NATO expansion on Russia since 1995. That’s when Burns, then a political officer in the U.S. Embassy in Moscow, reported to Washington that “hostility to early NATO expansion is almost universally felt across the domestic political spectrum here.”


Source: www.google.com... sia-177999

Oh well look at that, he concurs.

Who else?



George Kennan, the intellectual architect of America's containment policy during the Cold War, perceptively warned in a May 2, 1998 New York Times interview what NATO's move eastward would set in motion. "I think it is the beginning of a new cold war," he stated. "I think the Russians will gradually react quite adversely and it will affect their policies. I think it is a tragic mistake


Source: www.google.com... sia-177999



Yeah tell me about it George, so why are some posters in this thread playing dumb? Acting like Russia doesnt have genuine security concerns? They aren’t being threatened?

Is there ANYONE else that agrees?? Let’s see who else of these high ranking officials we can dig out...



In his 2014 memoir, Duty, Robert M. Gates, who served as secretary of defense in both Bush's administration and Barack Obama's, conceded that "trying to bring Georgia and Ukraine into NATO was truly overreaching." That initiative, he concluded, was a case of "recklessly ignoring what the Russians considered their own vital national interests."


Source: www.newsweek.com...


Que the NATO apologetics, claiming the above is all hogwash and not evidence of any threat. I mean its okay for USA/NATO to perceive IRAN as a threat and deploy missiles all the way in POLAND jesus christ. But Russia threatened by NATO expansion? Nahhhh... that’s baloney right?

I mean what do these US policy makers know about the topic anyway? The experts are right here!!! In this thread!! Choking on potato chips and beer.

As usual I bring the facts, but they’re unfashionable around here.. even when its from the american side

Polish air defense missiles are a threat to russia?

Or the fact that some countries aspire to join a defensive alliance meant to defend against a russian invasion, is a threat to russia?

Sounds pretty absurd.

Thanks for all the jibberish, but it doesn't contain any actual threat to russia.
