What impact will a Russian occupied Donetsk and Luhansk have on the US?
I understand war is an awful thing. It causes much pain and suffering and I don’t support the invasion of any country.
But what about the countless other invasions, genocides and military occupations around the globe; why is the Ukrainian response different? Why didn’t anyone in the west care about Azerbaijan’s invasion of Armenia a year ago?
I haven’t heard one argument outlining what impact the Russian invasion of Eastern Ukraine will have on the US. What are the possible ramifications of sanctions? How high could gas prices go? How high could inflation rise? What will that do to the future of US economy?
This may sound selfish but countries need to put their own citizens first when it comes to policy. We need a clear explanation as to why the US is getting involved and what the pros and cons are before we move forward.
