Yeah, the U.S. (and other western nations) really don't have any moral ground to stand on when they condemn Russia. What's good for the goose is apparently not good for the gander.
They have plenty of moral ground. Russia has, without a single reason, taken over part of another sovereign nation.
They have plenty of reasons (protecting Russian nationals, protecting their Black Sea Fleet naval bases, taking back historically important land, etc), just not reasons you agree with. I'm not saying it's right, just that we are massive hypocrites for calling them out on it.
lol @ protecting Russian Nationals. Russians live in almost every country in the world. Using that excuse, Putin can invade anyone at any time.
Ukraine is unstable and Russia is coming in to grab some land. Any excuses used to justify it are just that: excuses and poor apologetics.
It looks like Russia's ultimate goal might be to reinstate the ousted pro-Russian government in Ukraine.... much like the US-led conflicts which aimed to install pro-US governments in countries like Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, etc.
Libya was a NATO affair, not a U.S. led conflict. If you are going to continue to spew all of your anti-U.S. rhetoric at least get the shit right.
