I don’t agree with this, but it is a very interesting perspective.
I don’t believe however there are any angels in this story.
I do also believe that the West and America stands for good, and embraces wholesome values. NATO is a defensive alliance. I don’t believe anyone in NATO wants war. Quite the opposite.
I know that America is not a perfect place. Far from it. They have done so much bad shit in the past. But for my adult life, America has stood for something positive. Again, not perfect, but they do strive for freedom and equality.
“Putin could win. If the west so abandons its principles and values to let that happen, the long-term price, for everyone, will be a whole new world of pain.”

“I think is important for people to understand, is that Vladimir Putin, for whatever reasons he made the decision to do this in Ukraine, ultimately has created conditions that the U.S. has long wished were there for the United States to assert total dominance over European decision-making on issues of militarism. It also is an enormous boondoggle for the war industry.”
