Countries do not redraw others’ borders by force. A successful Russian invasion of Ukraine would rip up that norm

'Work with the Taliban or you will get the Islamic State' is precisely the argument Pakistan's generals want naive Americans to be making. In fact, both are products of the same Pandora's Box. #SanctionPakistan

This editorial, which doesn't even mention Pakistan, shows the US is still in a defensive crouch. Without accountability, there will be no effective humanitarian action or political strategy. Afghans will only suffer even more. #SanctionPakistan

No mention of Pakistan = state of denial. De facto appeasement continues. Exasperating. Afghans deserve so much better. #SanctionPakistan

Ukraine's Euro-Atlantic aspirations: "If less than 20 per cent of those polled supported joining Nato in 2013, almost 60 per cent favour it today."

"Russia today is following in the footsteps of former imperial powers, from the Ottomans to the French, who lost political, financial & cultural capital the more they clung to their imperial possessions."

Beyond ending Ukrainian sovereignty, Putin's war aims include dividing the EU/NATO, as well as wrecking Biden's presidency to provoke Trump-fuelled autocracy. This agenda backfires only if met with leadership & serious deterrence. #ArmUkraine #SanctionRussia #WeAreNATO

Putin's 2014 invasion of Ukraine's Crimea & Donbas brought @NATO 's Enhanced Forward Presence. Putin's threatened 2022 invasion, whatever its short-term impact, will bring Ukraine into @NATO . #ArmUkraine #SanctionRussia #КурсНАТО #WeAreNATO #DefendDemocracy

In other words, democracy & Ukraine in @NATO threaten Putin's power. If so, so be it. 'Slavdom' never united anyone -- any more than the English language or quests for the Holy Grail. Ukraine must be free to decide its own fate. #SanctionRussia #ArmUkraine #WeAreNATO

Putin not prepared to climb down from the coconut tree, as maximalist and unachievable aims are reasserted. Prospect of 'further action' restated. That's from the Russian readout, so no misinterpretation concerning Russia's position. Grim.
