Imagine how the US would react if it found out Russia was bringing Mexican cartel members to its territory and teaching them how to kill Americans “just in case” America ever invaded. That’s about what we’re doing while Sullivan, Psaki, and the regime media pretend that Russia is the aggressor. Russia would be without a valid bellum justum were it to invade Ukraine without provocation; that much is obvious. And, with that in mind, the US would be right to respond and aid Ukraine in defending its independence, so long as doing so would be within its interests.
