Open Letter to People Pretending to be Anti-War (because it’s popular right now on social media)

Apparently, Russia has attacked many targets across Ukraine. That much seems to be true.

Once again the mainstream media has been caught misrepresenting reality.

See here, here, here, here, and here for a sampling.

It’s tough to know what’s actually going on when it comes to war or anything else- especially overseas- because the news is so full of shit. Don’t get me wrong, a lot of independent outlets are full of shit, too. It’s just that the mainstream media delivers its BS with such an air of credibility and coordination that their lies and omissions are arguably far more dangerous to society.

Regardless of the actual truth of the Russia-Ukraine conflict, a lot of people are expressing their sympathy for Ukrainians on social media this week.

That much is good to see.

Even on LinkedIn, where political commentary is typically sparse, there are every manner of “support Ukraine” posts floating around. Some people are sharing links to fundraising campaigns.

It’s wonderful to see people here in the USA expressing interest in Peace.

Strike while the iron’s hot, they say. So let’s do some soul searching:

Next time the USA invades a country, will the voices of Americans suing for peace in Ukraine today emerge again with the same heartfelt concern for those being attacked?

Or are we judging Russia against a standard we ourselves will forever refuse to uphold?

It’s hard to envision a world where the people who attack an effectively defenseless nation with nothing more than vague accusations serving as justification are the good guys…right?

You guys are talking the talk.

Moving forward, let’s walk the walk.
