If the current situation with Russia in Ukraine was between the US and Mexico, this would be as if…
The US President was overthrown in Washington DC by Americans, but the overthrow was not something all Americans agreed with - especially in Texas, where ethnic Mexicans (who live in America, are both US citizens and Mexican citizens, and speak both English and Spanish) were among the groups who opposed the overthrow.
The Mexican government then decides that Texas and ethnic Mexicans are under threat by destabilizing forces in Washington…and thus justify their decision for Mexican troops to invade Texas??
How does that logic even follow? Crimea isn’t even all ethnic Russian, so what happens to the Ukrainians and Tatars who live in Crimea? And do ethnic Russians in Crimea even want to be annexed? They must live in Ukraine instead of Russia for a reason…
I cannot even wrap my head around all that’s happening in Ukraine right now, but it scares the crap out of me because I smell so many kinds of information blackout happening. How is the average Ukrainian doing? Can we believe our own media as to who is “good” and “bad”? What will this massive destabilization mean for the country?
…and how on earth can Russia justify putting troops down into sovereign soil this time?
And the thought of whatever (in)action the US might take? Shudder.
