I do not support Putin, his violence or his war.
After the obscenity of the Iraq invasion, the West is in no fucking position to lecture Russia on International Law or morality!
We lost the moral high ground a long, long, long time ago here.
If you wanted to be extra cynical, you would note that at least Russia has an actual existential issue with Ukraine being its immediate neighbour. The same could never be said about the invasion of Iraq.
I think we would also note that to date Russia has not done anything in the same vicinity of death and destruction America rained down on Iraq!
Sure, it’s early days and Putin is talking nukes, and I’m convinced it’s about to get very grim very soon, but sweet Jesus, the self aggrandising on the West by critics of Putin is sickening.
I DO NOT SUPPORT PUTIN.
I DO NOT SUPPORT HIS INVASION.
I DO NOT SUPPORT HIS VIOLENCE.
But the very hands we are pointing fingers with are drenched in blood.
Let’s not forget that in all the virtue signalling wallowing.
