Would India be better off if it invaded or seized control of Pakistan and Bangledesh and forced them to become part of India again?
I am saying the same in both cases... both Russia and India have their own problems and don't need to add the problems and complications of former parts of their states to those problems.
I am not saying Russia or for that matter India should not try to have good relations with its neighbours but lets be realistic... feeding a big fat baby when it cries to shut it up is doing that baby no favours at all.
I am also not against Belorus and Ukraine per se. It is the virulent anti-Russian elites and large part of the masses in those countries that
is the issue. If they cannot deal with Russia fairly and have to poop their pants with hate every time the word Russia is uttered, then they
can go and get f*cked. It is insane for Russia to coddle such swine. The best medicine for them is to be left to fend for themselves
and see what reality is all about.
In the case of Belorus, we have a surreal situation. I can't even find a single historical event that defines Belorus. Nothing. At least
Ukraine had Bohdan Khmelnitsky and some sort of identity formation for centuries. Belorus is a pure concoction of the Bolsheviks
and all this talk about independence is just sick. Why not carve up Spain, UK, France, Germany into some ad hoc countries based
on regional dialects or other token differences? Unfortunately for Belorus it is too late. They have had generations drinking the
distinctiveness koolaid and now think that they are different. Whatever. Those of them that have the right historical self-awareness
can move to Russia and make Russia great. The others can wallow in their phony nationalism based on stealing Russian history and
hate for Russians.
