You could have said that the west collectively have invaded countries for a lot less reasons than the Russians had, many of which are proven to be lies which were known to be lies at the moment but that didn't stop them using it as an excuse.
The bio weapon labs in Ukraine and China and all around the world that are US government funded seem to exist so they can do things that would be illegal to do in the US or the west.
The CIA has been using eastern european countries to do things they can't do in the west too, as has the US military keeping people in Cuba at Guantanimo bay because it would not be legal for them to do to them what they are doing there in the US.
Essentially they are doing things that are war crimes and anyone who speaks out like Assange gets put into jail.
What moral right does the west have left if it just ignores international law and morality when it suits them?
- Told him it was because they attacked and killed 14K people in Donbass. He said that was just Russian nonsense.
Technically it is Ukrainian nonsense because at the time they were Ukrainian citizens whose crime was to want to continue speaking Russian.
You are in Canada... if the government of Canada decided that it was time to use native languages from the region instead of evil colonial languages like French and English and both languages were banned and regions in Canada revolted against those rules and the government of Canada sent in the military with air attacks and artillery to shell those people and kill them... would the US and France be wrong to intervene to stop that government?
If that government got into power with 5 billion dollars of "investment" from China would it still be OK?
- Told Russia lost hundreds of thousands of troops and Ukraine has 300K men for the counter offensive and will retake Crimea
Russia is not doing this for fun, there is evidence the Ukraine was going to attack the Donbass and try to retake the entire territory and then attack Crimea, which means this war was always going to happen, but Russia got in some serious blows first and it is taking billions of dollars and a rearmament from the western weapon stocks to keep them going... but they are in no condition to do anything to Crimea except pin prick terrorist attacks.
- Told that General Sirovikin was fired from his job in Syria.
Russian generals can't pick and choose... they get sent to posts and they get removed from posts... there is no resigning posts.
- Putin is a Nazi cause he is genociding Ukrainians.
Ironic... the May Day parade is about destroying the nazis in Germany, so why would he allow that celebration if he supported them?
At the end of the day however his ignorance is amusing and ineffectual... just let him continue to fund the Ukraine because no amount of funding will help them... and the more they give the less Russians will think about the west as a future partner in anything.
