Canada's House of Commons put on an impressive display of unified enthusiasm for war, clapping like drones on Steptember 22nd 2023. In this video, Zelensky lays out the official narrative.

I don't care about the 90 year old soldier who was the occasion of such phony outrage. The truly dangerous thing is what we are doing right now. The embarrassing historical ignorance of our politicians merely underlines their incompetence and disinterest in truth.

This unanimous enthusiasm is inorganic and unpalatable. 

One can't help but get the impression that the politicians are applauding themselves as much as anything. It's much more comfotable to to cheer sending men to muddy graves than it is to be among those who fight.  Our soft and fattened politicians are feeling powerful. They have lots of Ukrainians to sacrifice on the alter of self-importance.



We’ve helped provide material to prolong the lopsided butchery of our ostensible beneficiaries.  Propaganda flourishes among the ill informed. Government financed Media organizations dutifully supply half-truths to fortify our ignorance.  We were never told about the farcical Minsk agreements, the color revolution, the bombing of civilians in the Ukrainian civil war, the popular support for succession or the operational realities of the military conflict. We are not told about the shuttering of churches and opposition parties in Ukraine.

These results were easy to anticipate. What is less clear to me is what animates it. This is not organized by anything resembling statesmanship or strategic thought.  Any ‘strategy’ is opportunistic reactivity when there are no clear goals set out.

Participating in organized violence without an articulate object seems to indicate some combination of three drivers: Actions are being taken on behalf of another party [pressure from the United States]. What clear objectives exist are too venal to admit publicly [Industrial profits or pandering to ethnic voting blocs]. Then there are considerations of a psychological nature. War fever. Boredom. Lack of direction.


4:35 Zelenskyy; “This russian aggression must end with our victory….” *politicians stand and applaud* “Yes!”

-Let's talk about your version of victory Zelensky. Let's talk about your apprehensions of danger. I don’t believe Russia intended to engage in such a bloody war, nor would it have without our intervention. It may seem to be an intervention in favor of Ukraine, but could not have been more damaging to it.
