One effect of the #UkraineWar is that it gives the #US #UK #NATO #Saudi etc a case to use to rehabilitate the idea they focus on: that military power is a force of good. #AfghanWar #IraqWar #LibyaWar #YemenWar provided a template for #Putin to follow. This is really not discussed enough because people want to support Ukraine in this difficult time, but it must always be part of any discussion of providing military support. Kudos to #politico for running this political cartoon linking these.
The invaded may be bad guys: They may be Nazis or religious fanatics. If you invade them, it becomes a case of bad guys fighting bad guys. However, if they're just regular guys, like Vietnamese, Libyans, socialists defending their homes, then it's case of good vs. evil. The Bad Guys have sometimes been the Russians but most of the time the Bad Guys are US.

There was a party on the Pentagon and Lockheed Martin when the Ukraine War began.
