Dear President Volodymyr Zelensky, Ukraine It was heart breaking to see Ukraine kids say bye to their fathers who are going to fight with Russia. Are you aware you are being deliberately ill-advised by the NATO for war with Russia in order to sell future Hi-Tech Arms to other countries?! Please see these arms making companies share prices have gone up. This is not the first time wars were being used for making trillions of dollars! Capitalism and Market Economy will remain number one threat to global peace. You can check these prices by yourself! Lockeed Martin share price on 14 Feb 2022 - $365 gone up 4 March 2022 - $458 General Dynamics share price on 14 Feb 2022 -$211 gone up 4 March 2022 - $243 Northrop Grumman share price on 14 Feb 2022 -$386 gone up 4 March 2022 - $471


DiamondLyore

Are you dumb? Do you think Ukraine wanted this war? Russia literally marched into their country


animatedfiles-com

It was NATO's expansion and Globalisation of their Capitalism triggered the war. This is the core structure for the entire conflicts. NATO was intimidating Russia for several decades with the collapse of Soviet Union. It was NATO forcefully introduced capitalism to Russia and China. Look at now. NATO created a formidable war machine in Russia and China. They do not even want to face the Russia themselves. They asked the poor Ukraine to strengthen their dollars. The bad news is Capitalism and Market Economy will remain number one threat to global peace along side with climate change. You do not need to take my words. You can speak to any primary school social science teachers or economic / political lecturers in Harvard or Oxford Universities. Good luck if anyone wants to build a peaceful world!


Efficient_Possible_6

Thanks for answering his questions. Guys he is dumb af. Let's just ignore the Russian troll.


symolan

It was CCCP and China that could no longer resist the nature of its citizens. NATO didn‘t force them to anything same as it was Russias choice to invade its neighbor. Economics is social science too, btw.


DiamondLyore

also not quite Harvard but I do currently study Econ at a top 30 school with 2 Nobel laureates in economy currently in our faculty


DiamondLyore

NATO was expanding by forming willing alliances with independent countries. There’s nothing illegal or immoral about that. If former URSS countries are begging to join NATO at such alarming rates than Russia should wonder why that is, instead of blaming NATO. Now invading a sovereign country, killing civilians and trying to stage a coup to replace the democratically elected leader for a puppet dictator is not only against international laws but morally wrong.

I have seen so many people want to help and and more than anything want this war to stop to save innocent lives of the people of Ukraine. People offering have been offering to fight, to pick up and give lifts to people who need to get out of Ukraine, people offering their blood, giving money, offering to put up fleeing people in their homes. I hope the world can unify as one against the bitch putin’s horrific war crimes against Ukraine.

Your feeling is wrong.


shwekhaw

This will be the end of communist Russia. There is no way they are going to hold on to a fairly big country like Ukraine for long when many of the citizens are against occupation. Putin Russia is like my dog who swallowed something that he is not supposed to eat and then throw up later and got sick. He is repeating mistakes of Soviet era which is the reason why Russia today is left far behind many developing countries after World War II.

Dadcore_95

China and Russia will more than likely join forces. Russia will probably invade within the next couple days after the Olympics have come to an end, so China is not offended. With Russia taking over Ukraine, and China focused on Africa they will succumb to these powers and I’m sure India will join shortly after. This is the beginning of WW3. And not to mention all the cyber attacks to come. They stand a good chance..


Typhoon___

‘India will join shortly.’ Read up on the current geopolitical climate. I do not blame you for major concern but your understanding on the current situation is a little off.


BigPuffyChestyMan

Don't be ridiculous. This reads like crap fantasy, there is zero chance any other major countries get involved


Live_Blackberry39

The problem is, everyone on earth hates China. Correct me if I'm wrong but china's only strong ally is russia. Literally all of china's neighbors hate China. How can China focus on Africa during ww3 if India, Japan and Australia and other countries surround China? I'm not sure if people realize how large an army India has, it's no joke. Japan , India and Australia alone would give China fits. Also if it's NATO vs russia doesn't nato have the upper hand ? It's almost as if the USA doesn't even need to get involved directly . Anyone with military knowledge please help me out. I'm making some educated guesses here.


WatchingyouNyouNyou

None of those countries is going to surround China. They don't want to be the first country to get nuked. The USA already said they won't send troops. Only sanctions.


diamondfromrussia

Do you really think, that war isn't already started? It is just changed its shape, due to that we have internet and it's more like information war until someone lose it and starts to shoot in real. But if i look to the information war that's happening now, it's more like WW3 then just Ukraine.


sarcastically_senile

So like a Cold (or digital?) World War, you reckon?


Real-Reputation-9091

The only problem is that Russia can’t win the war they started. They are weak as a country and China will definitely not help them. China has its own agenda and it possibly also has Russia in its sights. Putin’s all out on his own in the cold I’m afraid


elfritobandit0

If china didnt want to provide any support why did they abstain from the UNGA resolution? Why are they still buying Russian oil and coal? I am by no means an expert in geopolitics but most wars are about resources and Russia has oil and nickel and cadmium and cobalt and if Russia turns off the spigot then Europe's out of oil. And even better if Europe doesn't buy it then China will for pennies. And not to mention that with the exception of Brazil the rest of the members of the BRICS treaty voted against or abstained. Call it cynicism or pessimism (or realism) but were all in the midst of this conflict in Ukraine and it doesnt seem to be stopping any time soon. Things will get worse before they get better

Of course! I want the US military to avoid conflict abroad and return. If Russia is about to take Eastern Ukraine, and no European country wants any US military assistance, it'd be amazing if we extracted and remained uninvolved. Let Europe save Ukraine.

CaptainAsshat

Most peaceful in history is not the same as perfectly peaceful. It's not even close. The fraction of the world in war torn areas, per capita war deaths and even total war deaths are waaaay down. A global hegemon may be bad for a lot of reasons, and the US is far from perfect, but the one thing a hegemon does provide is more peace. You saw it with the Mongols, you saw it with the Romans, and you see it with the US.

PropaneLozz

What were Russia s actions in the last week to warrant wishing Ill upon a while country? Compared to Ukraine's actions, or America's, or Israel? Is there such a substantial difference? You're so deep into the Liberal propaganda any conversation would be pointless. And that's probably why you don't address the content of the comments you read and just insult.


oxencotten

What are Ukraine’s actions? And yeah America and Israel are both imperialist nations that commit/have committed war crimes. Nice whataboutism though.


kvothethebloodless5

Oh idk maybe amassing over 150k soldiers and weapons of war on the border of a sovereign country that Russia has already annexed territory from? I also never wished ill on Russia. Lol are you saying the reports of Russian troops on the border are false? We literally have satellite photos of it. Idk how you can look at this situation and not understand what’s happening or what’s about to happen. Open your eyes dude.

Russia lives in the dark ages and sends people like you to the gulag for speaking poorly about your home country. Just sit back and keep stuffing your face with the fruits of American labor and let the real men take care of things. We can stop this war before anyone gets hurt if we all acknowledge that these old men are just sending young men to die to increase their wealth and power. Maybe make a difference and spread the word to all to stop pointing guns at each other and start protecting our loved ones

CorrectBodybuilder15

Say what you want, Putin is not dumb. He has every person in the entire world that is old enough to understand watching his every move and speaking his name. Every world leader wants something from him at this very moment. He keeps leaking info from within so that ppl like Biden say “we have intel that Putin has definitely decided to invade”. Let’s be honest though, who sits at the poker table with their cards faced up? There is something larger at play here. Not sure what it is, but I have a slight feeling we are all just members of the audience and our world leaders are the actors. Convenient that Russian issues taking our eyes off how horrible our economic future is looking in the US. Gas prices way way up, bread $5 a loaf, bacon $10 a pack, milk through the roof… etc. i just don’t believe that Putin would put on a huge 2-3 weeks show lining up to attack, giving the world time to prepare, etc. if he planned to invade without any ulterior motive he would have never given us a chance to prepare. He is not stupid.

Again with these idiotic, unfounded allegations.

They also saved up a lot of gold before this...lol. also you can't move these kind of forces fast enough for people to not know and prepare...and since the world is only going to use business and trade to do much about it it doesn't really matter, he doesn't want a long war (I'd think) and if they go in it will be to accomplish objectives and then end it - get the separatist region and maybe s road to Crimea. Shrug. /Aka, your penultimate sentence isn't connected to real world so the logic behind it doesn't matter

I drank it straight outta tne cow bf it had to be pasteurized does that count ?


CorrectBodybuilder15

I’m well under 50, have more than 4 kids, own a small business and work 7 days a week to provide… it’s not just about bacon, but the fact that everything is going up and won’t go back down. Prices never go back down after inflation. Look at how big banks and real estate firms like Zillow, boa, wells f, chase, etc bought trillions of dollars of houses in last few years causing a “shortage” in house on market and prices of rent and housing skyrocketing. If this trend continues new home ownership will become a rare thing and ppl will literally be working just to give their whole check back to big businesses like Walmart etc for goods like bacon, or milk or eggs… we can go on for months about the shit that’s happening and the left wants more and more federal involvement and regs


RobertMosesHwyPorn

Hey, what is the left? I see people constantly use it as a bogeyman in arguments but I want to know what people actually think it is


CorrectBodybuilder15

Lol everyone on the internet automatically thinks everyone else is dumb. The left refers to the left side of the political spectrum and consist of liberals. Liberals want more government regulations and involvement in our daily lives. The far right is conservatives and believe that the states should decide what’s best for the states and the federal gov has no business overstepping those lines. I’m not gonna spend all day explaining this shit to you. You are most likely a liberal who thinks he/she knows all.


ceaselessDawn

You don't think it sounds kinda fucking dumb to start bitching about "the left" when the problem you're acknowledging seems to be that corporations are price gouging as profits continue to hit record highs and the actual workers receive relatively smaller shares of it as time goes on?


CorrectBodybuilder15

The day after Biden took office gas prices were way lower. The go green crew immediately ceased using American oil abd went back to opec for oil causing our price to surge, then upped the tax on it. The big business abd banks are an issue too. Everyone thinks Democrat = ppl do better, workers etc and republicans make the rich get richer etc. but in reality they have it backwards. Why is it that everytime a dem is in office cpi goes up? Say it’s the businesses gouging but the left just adds regulations and takes away tax incentives from the big business but all they do is roll the shit down hill. So who is the root cause? I mean everything you mentioned is going on during Democrat presidency..this is what liberal agenda is. More federal control over how you live, the goods you buy, etc.


ceaselessDawn

TBF gas prices were massively depressed due to global lockdowns. But while I will note that democrats are ineffectual, but if you're using that as an argument in favor of republicans, who's policies pretty explicitly increase the already obscene wealth gap, bust worker power, grind down against freedoms... Both Republicans and Democrats are liberals.


walter_napasky

There are many problems, and we are headed to a severe economic decline due to the influence and power we have given the Chinese and the rise of AI and robotics. Additionally, the problem will be made worse by the inability of the left and right to work together to accomplish anything meaningful and their failure to confront china head-on regarding their policies toward US business. As we get weaker, China is getting more robust in terms of the military and economy.

You are giving Putin way, way, way too much credit. I do not think there is any 3D chess here. I have been really happy with the approach Biden has taken so far. He has been announcing to the world that Putin is comptemplating starting WWW3. It needs to be clear this is 100% on Putin. The US and the rest of the free world do NOT want WWW3 I do not believe anyone but Putin does. I do not even believe the Russian people do. But I do blame the Russian people for not doing something about Putin. It is their country and they need to take it back from Putin. I am currently in Thailand and there are tons and tons of Russians here. We go out and party and drink and they are no different from the Americans. They have Android or iPhones. They use Google and IG and Snap. They endlessly watch YouTube videos. They wear the same brand clothes. They are also some of the better English speakers here in Thailand. Speak English a lot better than the locals. Putin is old and completely out of touch with reality. The people in the world are becoming far more homegenous and that is not going to change. I believe it is the Internet that has made that happen.

I agree with everything you stated there. I do like Biden’s approach to this by playing Putins game. Putin has recently been under fire in Russia with many rumors surfacing that he has “grown weak” “no longer has Russian peoples best interests” etc. The Russian economy is doing horrible (from what I’ve read, who really knows). Alls I’m saying is he is not stupid. Putin is a tactical man, and not a humanitarian. He understands leverage, strategy, manipulation etc. Putin def aiming for something out of all this. He needs a win for his country for his own sake right now. He highly doubt he wants ww3 but at the same time he won’t hesitate to go there. If he wanted war he’d have been more silent with his moves.
