It seems we are faced with an interesting scenario when it comes to the war in Ukraine. America didn’t start this war and it seems it’s being seen differently by most western countries. countries more than willing to hand out opinions on “war crimes”
Meanwhile we watched a continuous war March through the Middle East for a long time and seemed to be supported by the same people holding up anti Ukraine war signs now?..
From the outside looking in anyone would take a look at this scenario and think it was absolutely insane.
Don’t get me wrong, any war is terrible, but this is just ridiculous… Is it not?
America can kill 11 million, almost twice the toll of nazi Germany in WW2 and we just sit idle by and accept it.
The war in Ukraine has triggered swift condemnation by several countries, immediate sanctions by the United States and other countries targeting Russian banks, oil refineries, and military exports, and marathon emergency talks at the UN Security Council (UNSC).
On social media, the speed of such an international response – which includes the exclusion of Russia from some cultural events and treatment of it as a pariah in sports – has raised eyebrows at the lack of such a reaction to other conflicts across the world.
Media pundits, journalists, and political figures have been accused of double standards for using their outlets to not only commend Ukraine’s armed resistance to Russian troops, but also to underlying their horror at how such a conflict could happen to a “civilised” nation.
CBS News senior correspondent in Kyiv Charlie D’Agata said on Friday: “This isn’t a place, with all due respect, like Iraq or Afghanistan that has seen conflict raging for decades. This is a relatively civilised, relatively European – I have to choose those words carefully, too – city where you wouldn’t expect that, or hope that it’s going to happen.”
His comments were met with derision and anger on social media, with many pointing out how his statements contributed to the further dehumanisation of non-white, non-European people suffering under a conflict within mainstream media.
