I read through the list of Pulitzer Prize winners this morning and I noted with regret the photographic winner. It is almost unimaginable that everybody in the West and just about every Western government hails the Ukrainian resistance to Russia's special military operation which only erupted after all the same idiots repeated every single mistake that led to the Second World War. Ukraine continues to suffer an agonizing destruction as the West funnels endless weapons and money into the corrupt government's hands to fight the Russians to the last Ukrainian.
I have to say that I tend to side with Putin on this war. All of the West, all of NATO gave solemn assurances to Russia when the Berlin Wall fell and the Cold War ended that we would not advance the NATO frontier one inch closer to Russia when they permitted the consolidation of East Germany into the Federal Republic of Germany. They lied. They lied again when they assured the Russians with the Minsk Accords that the Russians living in the Donbass would be treated fairly and equitably by the utterly venal and corrupt kleptocrats running Ukraine. They lied again.
Even after decades it still amazes me how something like 95% of Americans always fall for the propaganda its own government and media put out as truth and fact.
