I pretty much never post in political threads, but here is just one.
For all of the people who unconditionally support Ukraine and are cheering on the latest tanks being sent over, I hope you are prepared to be sent to fight, or to send off loved ones to fight. This disgusting escalation needs to cease. Peace must be negotiated, and yes, that means concessions on both sides.
Do I know what those concessions should be? Not in the slightest. I am not overly knowledgeable in world politics. However, I am very much anti-war and am appalled by our world leaders who only seem to be provoking the other side.
"If you think Putin is equivalent to Hitler, remember, he is Hitler with nukes" - Viva Frei
Our leaders need to be doing everything possible to avoid this, which does not seem to be the case at all.
This is my only post on the matter, so I will not reply to any possible vitriolic responses.
I pray this ends ASAP.
It would have been all great if there was at least some ground for a diplomatic negotiation. You need to remember one thing: every time Putin says that he has some valid negotiation arguments, he lies. As others already said, the only thing he will accept is if Ukraine bends over and becomes his puppet state. Which will never happen, because more than 90 percent of Ukrainian population won't accept it. Yes, with how badly the war has been going for Putin, he probably won't be against taking a break and stop at some demarcation line for now, only to come out with some more false accusations of NATO threats and "Ukrainian nazi regime" breaking the agreements to justify attacking again after a few more years. We already saw that back in 2015.
