"Russia is ready to fight": Americans on the crisis around Ukraine


An interesting discussion unfolded on the official YouTube channel of the Fox News television company, where the invited expert could not intelligibly answer the question of why the United States would interfere in the Russian-Ukrainian conflict.


So, to a direct question news leading, and what America cares about that region in general, and whether everything that happens is the business of Europeans, political scientist Dan Hoffman gave a rather unusual answer. Starting with the fact that "Russia is the American problem," and ending with the listing of highly dubious accusations, such as cyberattacks and interference in the US presidential elections in 2016.

In the comments section, many users met this approach with bewilderment and did not skimp on criticism.

Below are some of the comments:

We were unable to defeat even a handful of Stone Age Aborigines in Afghanistan. Russia sees how important Ukraine is to issues of its own defense, and it has close historical ties with that country. Ukraine is the red line that Russia is ready to fight and die for. The question arises: are we ready? How many Americans are we willing to sacrifice for a relatively poor Eastern European country that has never been in our sphere of influence? We are tired of wars. For heaven's sake, stop interviewing these CIA phantoms and focus on our own country and its borders.

- commented Richard Powell.

To be honest, I found his answers to the question of why America should intervene murky. They sound almost as dubious as any other equally vague answer to the question of global policy USA, what I've heard in the last 40 years

- confessed William O'Braidislee.

I do not think that Putin is bluffing, and if he is desperate, he will definitely do something! I hope and we know what we are doing! If he [Putin] does find his ace, we'd better be careful! Keep your friends close and your enemies closer!

- noticed a certain Mark Hayes.

Putin is trying to protect his country from the aggressive pressure of NATO. If you look at everything that happens from Putin's point of view, it is no different from how we acted when the USSR deployed missiles in Cuba. I recall that we called that moment a crisis. But when we do this to another country, then the blame is only on that country.

- recalled Rise of the Libertarian.

Isolate Russia from Visa and Mastercard systems, as well as from the World Bank. Their planes will be banned from refueling abroad. Cut them off from the IMF too

- demanded Joseph T pg.

America must stay away from overseas affairs. Let the locals decide something there, since it is so important to them. And we, having just left the lost war in Afghanistan, where we have been stuck for 20 years; for some reason we are trying to threaten Russia. Whenever something happens, America always tries to get into the thick of it

- complains the user Deez Nutz.

    The experts will not fight.

      I agree with you on this. But they will die just like everyone else, maybe only a little later.

    Poorly educated Americans for the most part simply have not yet realized that the issue of Ukraine has already been closed. Literally in the last telephone conversation between Putin and Biden. Two really smart people spoke.
    And now we are talking about more global topics. I hope that there are more adequate people in the command of the US Armed Forces and the president's team. The level of "publicly available" Western expertise in the media and among various parliamentarians, etc., is below the floor.

      Not closed. A part of Donbass and Luhansk region, not controlled by the Kiev authorities, is recognized as Ukrainian by the Russian authorities. With thousands of Russian citizens. Their fate and well-being are vague. Who will be responsible for the several thousand military and civilian LDPR dead and disabled.?

      The same skirting boards Lukin, Gryzlov, Walter, and other curators.

        LTD! Yes, yes, yes ... Mister gunnerminer! By the way, you will decide who you are in the end - a gunner or a miner ...

        Part of Donbass and Luhansk region not controlled by Kiev authorities recognized as Ukrainian by Russian authorities

        - you will be surprised, but here I even agree with you. The same authorities (Russian by itself) just have to decide if the remaining temporarily abandoned territory of the former Ukrainian SSR is to be annexed to the LPNR and all this is to continue to be considered Ukraine in some form, or, together with the Donbass, to simply be made a region of the Russian Federation. And they will definitely decide this without the US, EU and various useless "international organizations".
        And those who are to blame for the death and injury of both the military and civilians on both sides of this artificially provoked conflict will certainly pay off. The US and the EU have literally already started. And on their local Bandera sixes will also reach in the very near future.
        And ... you don't have to bother answering me again - I no longer intend to enter into stupid discussions. Ours for you with a brush, as they say hi

          They ate little porridge. The state of the rental, corrupt, comprador economy will not give
          act so decisively. The results of the military reforms of 2008-2012 do not give rise to such calculations and hopes.

          And those who are to blame for the death and injury of both the military and civilians on both sides of this artificially provoked conflict will certainly pay off.

          They haven't paid for seven years. And then they suddenly pay off. fool

          And ... you don't have to bother answering me again - I no longer intend to enter into stupid discussions. Ours for you with a brush, as they say

          Prepare carefully. Read more about Russia. Do not neglect communication with Russian workers of industry and agriculture, with the military.

    Russian imports from the EU are 40% of all imports. RF in EU imports from RF is 7%. War is an import stop. Here the other day, the Kaliningrad region almost suffocated because of the interruption of transit through Lithuania for a couple of days.
    We must not fight, but live peacefully.

      Yes, yes, they did not bring jamon from Europe - everyone died in Russia))) Your Europe lost almost 300 billion euros only on retaliatory sanctions - and these are closed production facilities and ruined farmers. Poles still crack their apples in all the cracks)))
      And if there is no transit to Kaliningrad, then there will be no Lithuania. There, Lithuania has a lot of lands donated by Stalin - the question of returning can be raised. I wonder who from NATO will stand up for Lithuania?)))

        Europe is yours only on retaliatory sanctions has lost almost 300 billion euros

        It was not Europe that had to be written, but the EU. Complete illiteracy. Or is the Russian Federation not in Europe? 300 should be compared with what the Russian Federation lost. Then compare what is the EU and RF GDP. And it would not be bad to compare the growth rates of the economies of the EU and the Russian Federation, and you will become SAD for the Russian Federation. Can I help you with information or find and compare yourself?

    And what is so behind the real, current time are you trying to build propaganda? You would have cited the beginning of the 90s as an example. But the very fact that the Americans will shove their arrogance up their ass, they are still negotiating, it unequivocally says that they do not agree with you 100%. So in order not to fall into the dirt with your face like that, you would at least look at your idols and not only pray at them in ecstasy
