Missile No. 2
Russia has been at war with Ukraine for eight years. We just started paying attention two months ago.
Russia has been at war with the entire west for about that long as well. We still haven't noticed. Their weapons are non-conventional. They're bots on Twitter and hackers who phish political operatives. Дональд Трамп was a guided missile aimed directly at the fissures in US society. Brexit was a guided missile aimed directly at the fissures in UK society. Their purpose was to destroy NATO and the EU, and they've made big strides in that direction. It will take us decades to repair the damage caused by those missiles.
It's time to return the favor.
I am a pacifist by and large, and a small d democrat. I don't like weapons. But when a totalitarian fascist dictatorship attacks you, you have to fight back. When said dictatorship announces that its aim is to erase an entire nationality from the map, that's genocide. There is no pacifist solution to genocide, no compromise position. "Never again" we said after the Holocaust. And after Cambodia. And after Rwanda. And after Darfur, Sudan. And after the Rohingya in Myanmar. Right now, the battlefield is in Ukraine, but this is the World's war. Ukraine needs heavy weaponry; tanks, armored personnel carriers, missile defense systems, and missiles. Ukraine is starting to get some of what they need, but they need more. You can contact your representatives and ask them to support increased military aid to Ukraine. Also, the National Bank of Ukraine has set up a special account that you can send money to to support the Ukrainian Armed Forces.
