The fact that the media is telling you that the Ukraine situation is a simple case of good guys vs. bad guys tells you all you need to know.
When the media presents only two options, one of which is the highly moral choice, and all others being immoral, it means you are being tricked. No situation is ever so black and white, especially when it comes to foreign policy.
The Ukrainian situation is no different. This is an insanely complex situation with so many players that very few people truly know what’s going on, and that includes the people involved. There is no doubt the main actors involved have a grand scheme, but as we all know the best laid plans often go awry.
But what we do know is that western nations are shipping heavy military weapons to the Ukraine in a way that is totally unprecedented. Not only in scope, but the glee in which politicians are bragging about sending these heavy weapons.
Marc Rubio Tweeted early in the conflict as if this was all a fun game full of “surprises”.

But if you stop and take a break from the propaganda, you can start to see similarities to other regions of the globe where western nations flooded them with military weapons as well.
The Middle East is a perfect example. America and other nations have armed just about every side of every conflict in the Middle East by this point. All of it has come back to bite us in the ass in one way or the other. From the funding of Osama Bin Laden in the 70’s and 80’s to arming Saddam Hussein. It all backfired spectacularly.
So here we are, doing the exact same thing in Ukraine. But this time, we are flirting with a nuclear superpower, something that was never at risk during our Middle East debacles.
Secondly, it’s the bizarre glee with which everyone is arming the area. Even local private companies here in America are bragging about sending munitions to Ukraine. Nobody has any idea where this stuff is ending up or what’s going to happen.
It all seems like a case of bizzaro world. Where normally people would call for peace, but instead they are openly cheering for heavy weapons to be sent to a war zone with zero oversight or any knowledge of who is even fighting or what the loyalties are. It’s as if the public around the world is watching some sort of reality show, and they want to add weapons to the equation to see what the result will be.
The problem is, this isn’t a show. The entire European region can be destabilized, and with it a nuclear superpower.
How this will end is anybody’s guess. But history has shown us that flooding a region with weapons and little oversight always comes back to bite us.
