Nah. You've attempted to frame everyone as being disingenuous for merely framing this is as Russian Imperialism.What a weird take. First off, no one has advocated "surrendering", so chalk that up as more evidence that you don't feel you can defend your position without misrepresenting the other. But yes, pretty much any option that avoided war with the USA would have been TREMENDOUSLY more beneficial for Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, Afghanistan, and Iraq. Did you not see what happened to those countries? Decimated by the USA bombing, descending into civil war, adding strength to some of the most bloodthirsty terrorist and extremist groups we've ever seen....yeah, war completely fukked them.
Of course, "war" and "surrender" are not the only two options. But warmongers are always disingenuous on that front.
That makes zero sense and is pure bullshyt. I have never, ever been pro-imperialist, not have I ever seen pro-imperialism as a position of "the left". And a country can be perfectly justified in wanting to defend itself via traditional military warfare and also end up strategically lost and create vastly more suffering for its people in the process.
Now you've gone full 1984 with the doublespeak. YOU dumbasses are the ones happy to indefinitely sacrifice the Ukrainian populace with no end game in sight.
And your claim that I pushed the idea "borders don't matter" directly contradicts my clear statement from yesterday that borders absolutely matter. So either you're falsely misrepresenting me out of ignorance, or you're just a liar. Either way you look like a piece of shyt.
In this thread I have asked all three of you at least 10 times what your endgame is beyond indefinite war. And I am still waiting for the answer.
We wouldn't be here if Russia didn't arbitrarily decided to invade Ukraine.
The idea that defending your own sovereignty is a bad decision because it will lead to losses is the weakest argument I've ever seen.
You're a smart guy, but you're a weak man.
