No one with any morals would support a war and Putin is an evil mad man. With that said, US does provide an opening for people like him to take advantage of; from the disastrous military withdrawal in Afghanistan to promoting gender equality in our military; The inflation has been running hot and with Russia's vast resources in natural gas and oil, Putin is testing our resolve for even higher inflation.
Let's put this way, if gas hits $10 per gallon, how many Americans will want the war to stop with Ukraine surrendering much of its sovereignty?

I think it's crazy that gender equality in our military gets talked about like a top issue.

Not the fact that the Pentagon failed every audit ever conducted, while our military budget has grown more than 2x from 320 billion in 2000 to 778 billion in 2020.

Nobody seems to even question why we spend more on our military than the next nine highest spending countries combined.

Don't think it'll even get to $10. By maybe $8, we'll sign up for WW3.

Where were all these anti-war voices when the US invaded Iraq?  1,000,000 Iraqi's died and nobody cares.

Saying nobody cares isn't very accurate. It was always a polarizing issue with huge partisan divide.

Maybe at the start of the war, you could stretch a bit and claim that nobody cared.

In 2003, 89% Republicans and 53% Democrats said using military force was the right decision.

But it quickly became very unpopular among Dems. Less than a year in, the Dem support already dropped to 30s. The R support remained high, even in 2018, 61%% of Republicans still believed it was the right choice.(vs 27% Dem support)

Were you against it after what happened? Or did you forget already?

So does that mean you support the Putin invasion of Ukraine?

IHO - This is beneath you, more on par with what I expect from eyephone.  I'm sure the dying & dead in Ukraine and Iraq could care less about our pissing matches.

Then stop posing and answer the question. Back your accusations up.

You can see the parallel/similarity as vaccine mandate...it is still about forcing a mainstream narrative and then control and obedience.

Vaccine mandate for healthy young people never makes sense, now we are forcing ordinary citizens to disavow Putin to make a living?

I am on Ukraine's side 100% but the media has gone overboard with a lot of misinformation (for COVID the media misinformation is how effective and safe the vaccines were and for this war is how innocent Ukrainians are and how evil Russia/Putin is).

I was against the Iraq war from the very beginning.  Some of my historical posts on TI validate this fact.  Feel free to search them if you have the time.

Hard to validate this since the Iraq War started in 2003... well before the IHB.

It's always easy enough to say you were against in when there is no evidence to prove it. And since you have a pattern of revisionist history, we'll just have to leave it at that.

I think there are differences between the US/Iraq War and what Putin is doing now so you can't use such a broad stroke to compare the two.

So does this mean you are against the Putin invasion?
