Day 38, Phase 2
Weapons, Weapons, Weapons
Jason was member of Nancy’s delegation visiting Kyiv.
“We have to make sure the Ukrainians have what they need to win. What we have seen in the last two months is their ferocity, their intense pride, their ability to fight and their ability to win if they have the support to do so. The United States of America is in this to win, and we will stand with Ukraine until victory is won.”
Jason served as an Army infantry captain in Iraq, in a war the United States shouldn’t have started. Then he became a lawyer. Then he went into politics.
The next time you find yourself listening to middle-aged men talking about guns focus your attention instead on reason, science, humanism and progress.
Go for a run, drink Mukuzani. Тake a nap.
That’s exactly what I did on Sunday, May 1, on Day 67 (Day 37, Phase 2) in the ninth year of Russia’s war against Ukraine.
I woke up thinking about Detachment A, asymmetrical warfare and then wrote a letter to Jason, since he’s so passionate about Russia not rubbing us out.
In other news, Joe said nice words about media coverage of fascist Russia’s genocidal war against Ukraine.
I have been more critical.
I tried to listen to the TwitterSpace chit chat between Dmitri, Nolan and Michael, but was distracted by the cat.
Leonid’s weekly Q&A kept my attention, tho.
Using terms like rebels, separatists, breakaway regions and insurrection to describe the crisis serves no purpose of diplomacy or journalistic balance. It is a failure to serve the public interest. Russia’s war against Ukraine should be described as what it is: an armed conflict instigated and sustained by Russia’s armed intervention. Day 30. Mass Deportation (March 25, 2022)
