Is Ukraine war a US/NATO purchased war ?

What is a "purchased war"? I'm unfamiliar with the expression. I searched for it online and only found pages explaining war bonds.
@2cool4school AAAAAAAND ...

Patience kiddo some of us have lives.
Ready ?!! Ok for a good example of a purchased war look up the Congo Crisis 1960-1965/66. It involves both the USA and the USSR engaging in the fight on opposing sides not because they wanted to aid the people in conflict but because the winner would get significant resources. I’m not going to spoil it for you. You can look it up on your own. Or ask your mother for help like you do with everything else in your life. And when you’ve learned to be a better person you can thank me, by naming your first child… oh nvm I doubt that’s going to happen for you either. 😜
@2cool4school That war was a proxy war. Is "purchased war" just another name for a proxy war? If so, why make up a new name when 'proxy' is so much more descriptive.

If "purchased war" means a war with costs and benefits, all wars have costs and benefits. Does that mean all wars are "purchased wars"?

If you brought up the example of Bush 1 sending troops to Kuwait and getting billions in gov't to gov't payments for doing so, I could see that as a "purchased war." But very few wars fit that pattern.

You might consider asking those people who are slaughtered in their homes and supermarkets by Russian killer rockets.

Only if you think Putin is a US/NATO puppet. Or you're a Russian troll.

@Northwest whatever tugs your boat.

@Northwest [quote] So, to wrap this up:

1. You made up some bat shit crazy story about me contacting you "to get to know you better".

2. You made up another crazier bat shit story, that I am stalking playgrounds.

3. You still pretend you're a woman 🤣

I suggest you either cut down on the drugs, and seek help so you can understand why a guy wants to pretend he's a woman on SW.

If it makes you feel better I can tell you have a lot of pent up aggression. And you really want me to be male so you can imagine all the ways that you would take it out. I’m just not your type lol 😂

No, it's a fight for a nation's existence when confronted by an expansionist dictatorship run by a reportedly terminally ill madman with delusions of Tzarhood.

@2cool4school No, they made a movie out of the book. And keep trying to insult me -- it's fun to watch you being futile.

@ChipmunkErnie really ?! 🤓

Whoa what a concept. Movies made out of paper from books. What will they do next. Maybe even you have a chance at success in this world?! Nope 👎 not likely 🥸

Yes of course it is. It never was anything less.
2cool4school · 41-45, F
Yep 👍

@hippyjoe1955 [quote] Ah so the US is after the oil. So why did they boycott? Europe can't buy oil or gas. Kind of a stupid move. They had no trouble buying the oil and gas before from RUSSIA

Rather a myopic interpretation at best. You need to pay closer attention!! Do or do not. There is no try young Jedi. You can interpret that any way you like.
hippyjoe1955 · 61-69, M
@2cool4school I would respond to your comment but it doesn't make any sense. Myopic? The only people lacking insight are the silly folks that think this war is about oil or gas or other minerals. Why go to war when the goods are for sale? That sounds like the same silly excuse the anti Bush people used to explain Bush's invasion of Afghanistan. Minor problem was none of the events the anti Bushers prognosticated ever came true. Very strange.
I don't know about purchased but it is definitely a proxy war and entirely predictable.

@PicturesOfABetterTomorrow bingo or at least a half bingo and that’s impressive for this post.
Dude I already block you once I'm not doing it again. So stfu.

@canusernamebemyusername I like your style!! 😎

Yep. They're trying so hard to set off a world war.

The Only problem is...well more than one.

Zelensky Is trying so hard to be Convincing to the U.S. and EU and possibly all over the world. Trying to act like a Hero while his appearance is changing. Although I wouldn't say much about health but under the influence of Drugs during the time. He actually looks different than the first beginning of invasion.

His face is starting to turn white and looks like he' haven't slept in a while and His Voice sometimes changes to a Deep Tone whenever he was being Interviewed.

I don't think it's much of His Health Issue but He's a Drug Addict. More like meth and Weed.

Meth Changes their body. Weed can change anyone's Voice if they're too stoned to function. More like smoking too much

@LetsGoBrandon I guess you've lived through lots of invasions and the mass murder of your fellow countrymen and therefore know exactly how your body would respond to the unrelenting stress and trauma of it all.

STFU IDIOT!
MarkPaul · 22-25, M
No, it's a Russian/Putin mortgaged war... mortgaged at the highest rates.
@MarkPaul A canned response is your cliche simplistic statement with zero analysis, and zero nuance.

And your cold war insults just make you look even more clownish.
MarkPaul · 22-25, M
@PicturesOfABetterTomorrow This from the guy who promoted Putin's view of the war he started for occupation long after he stopped defending his baseless Nazi-hunting propaganda. Are you really THAT naive?
2cool4school · 41-45, F
I’ll give you a hint. There’s no money in peace ☮️ So…
dubum · 51-55, M
Now the news said that Zelenskyy is preparing 1 million soldiers to recapture area taken by Russia !!
and tell people there to evacuate !!
@dubum This is extremely suspect. Their military did not reach those numbers even at it's very largest in 1991 when it was around 700k with the remains of it's share of the former soviet red army.

@dubum Definitely war propaganda. The clue is in the details of the statement. Speaks volumes they have to add random services like cops and border guards to get to 700k which is still 300k short. And most of that number are not combat troops.

It is more about boosting the morale of Ukrainians than it is a valid number.

For context the US army only has 480,000 actual combat troops as of 2020.

@jimjim1969 of who ?? At least Biden’s a puppet for the MIC.
Yes. NATO caused it, now they're extending it.

@UnertraeglicherSpasti Yeah, I was wondering what a "purchased war" is. I searched for it online and only found pages explaining war bonds.
