I am stopping myself every time I want to use offensive language in relation to the Russian criminals or post something that would play to their hand. I am constantly reporting Russian chats. For example yesterday they all cheered and were ecstatic about Stoltenberg’s statement that NATO will not be interfering in Russo-Ukrainian war and I posted about it. Translated their snug commens. I then deleted the post because I realized that that’s exactly what Putin wants - to engage NATO into this war and turn it into WW3. So I took down the post because after conversation with my mother we came to the conclusion that it’s better for Ukrainian nation to sacrifice itself protecting ourselves and the rest of the world rather than ask for NATO’s intervention which will start WW3. This is the fate we were granted with by God and we accept it. We as a nation will not perish. We will protect ourselves and the world from these atrocities Putin is lusting for.
The thing is, the rest of the world no longer cares about the bizarre world of American politics.
Absolutely anything and everything is turned around and made into an American centric issue.
And one's take on it depends purely on one's predisposed party allegiance.
So many Americans just can't help but turn this into an American issue.
People who I've read for years preaching about anti-authoritarianism suddenly supporting Putin - an authoritarian tyrant - simply so that they can turn it around and somehow blame Biden.

"I have not seen one person "supporting" Putin here ".
There's quite a few posting endless pro Putin propoganda on here and quite a few mocking/hating on Zelensky, too.
Not sure how you might not have noticed?
Not trying to shut you up at all.
The party system itself has failed the US badly.
We had 40 years to help rebuild Russia, bring them into the fold, lift up the former USSR states. But for some reason we let it pass us by
Letting inept leaders like W Shrub 2 get us into ridiculously unjustified wars. We were asleep at the wheel myself included. I supported both wars at the time
s". We didn't go to war in WWII over Poland, we went to war over ideals and the preservation of a way of life.

CNN BANNER right now: TALKS UNDER WAY TO RELOCATE UKRAINE's GOVERNMENT TO POLAND.
What does that mean? Is that why VP Kamala Harris is going to Poland on Wednesday?
Could it mean the current U.S. Government is secretly (and oppositely aka "the pattern") supporting the Russian Government ?
Sure looks like it don't it 😵
