RE: Pain in my Ukraine

You are viewing a single comment's thread:

Ok, first off I think I am a bit high strung because while I am 'far away' from the current situation, my life is actually pretty well. If I have to say so myself. My son just had a baby so I am now a grandfather. I think that would be a good start on my position based on myself as an experience.

Ok why I think this is delusional because I have to form a basis on it:

The mob's energy will obviously be redirected to eventually support American imperialism.

This is where I take exception. Really? American Imperialisms? The US cannot even have a concerted front to begin with at home. Imperialisms died when Bush came into office along time ago, there is no more legitimacy that the US held for so long prior to Bushy and those danged terrorists. Hence why I say delusional. The mob wouldn't be able to hold as a mob for long, have you seen how interconnected we all are these days. One day we talking about Ukraine next thing you know, I knw this for a fact its back to climate change. I just have to look at my feed. I am already being feed the next topic by the algorithms.

This theory that we are being controlled or more precisely feed propaganda I can sort of agree with but, propaganda to me is centered around state control and frankly the US or the West do not hold that much control like the big reds. So I that is then delusional again as a basis for my little outburst.

My stake is quite small and will not even scratch your paint but I will stand by my statement.

The threat of nukes coming out of nowhere while I see a tomorrow with my new grandchild far outweighs any sense of safety that you are so 'confident' will not happen. I like to think there are cycles in human conflict and from looking at the last 3 centuries before the 2000's we are close to that cycle of strife. Which worries me.

I don't know you personally and my only interaction with you has been in written for, which can be dissected and regurgitated to form any kind of way that suits a narrative by any party.

Humans are flawed, I know because while I am staunch at not drinking till Easter I have already had a few sips of alcohol here and there already. So with the buildup of armies within the borders of Ukraine and Russia by NATO armies. The chances of human error increases shit getting all going to hell as quickly as a sneeze from a soldier accidentally squeezing a trigger by accident. A domino effect.


Ah, congratulations on grandfatherdom.

Really? American Imperialisms?

Yes, American Imperialism.

We are called the World Police for a reason.
Nothing has changed.
We are out there tinkering in the affairs of every country that we think we can extract value from.
Libertarians despise it.
Comedians joke about it.
Jingoists embrace it.
This is a fact, so to call that delusional once again puts me in a position of shear disbelief.

Look at the other comments of this post and the threads on Twitter.
Look how much shit I stepped in today.
At this point it's more amazing how much shit there is to step in rather than the actual situation itself.
Landmines everywhere.
There's a lot more to this situation than meets the eye, and I think that will reveal itself over time.

There's also other serious questions that need to be asked like...
What good is worrying about something that you have zero control over?
Stress is not healthy.
Lot's of people are worried about these things,
and that fear is going to be exploited by the master manipulators running the show.
I very much feel like you've proved several of the points I was making in the OP.
Yet you will continue thinking it is delusional.
Very strange.
This situation is almost as emotionally charged as 9/11.

And don't worry about the downvotes.
I never complain about those.
Getting downvoted to zero on a post like this would be the least of my problems.

Unfortunately, that's part of your history and how America has "earned good percentages" of its wealth.

A friend of mine has had a talk with a Syrian a few months ago. The man was a high positioned in the Syrian army that has become a refugee in Syria, he no longer could bear the situation for him and his family although war was part of his life.

The interesting thing that he told to my friend, based on confessions from ISIS members who managed to escape the group and prisoners was that the US was sponsoring ISIS so they can fight the Syrian army...

Then they were offering Syrian army aerial support, when the army could no longer hold against ISIS at the cost of $10,000/missile. How do they think has Syria paid back its debt to the US?

Oil... I'm not judging Americans here, some of you are really great folks, I met some in person, but you're country leaders are worse than Putin and have caused much more pain than he did.

I still feel sorry what what the Ukrainians are going through, being our neighbors and I still stand by the take that they have the right to choose if they want to join the EU or NATO. Nevertheless American Imperialism is obvious.
