Germany has become an unreliable ally (even if it was only a conquered client state). France has always done what is in it’s interest at the expense of all, but now Germany tells eastern Europe that it’s economy is more important than the european peace, and that the conflicts that started the world wars are not yet settled. In Ukraine we just want to be free of Russian oppression, corruption, murder, propaganda and poverty. How the west and Russia rationalize their risks is irrelevant to the Ukrainian people who see Poland right next door thriving while we here live in the poorest christian country with the highest levels of corruption outside of Argentina. We choose Europe because it is the only choice possible to make for rational beings.
