Why bother getting involved?
Ukraine is a western values democracy full of intelligent and hard-working people, striving for freedom from the soviet-style Russian stronghold. It is imperative that Ukraine (the largest country by land fully located in Europe) not fall to a repressive dictatorship by means of brute force, as currently displayed.
Should Ukraine fall, while west stands by fearing military confrontation with Russia, Putin would quickly annex Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania thereby connecting with his de-facto control of Belarus, and detached Kaliningrad region. This would bring back most of the USSR back, which he feels is his God-mandated duty (expanding the Russian empire, a.k.a. USSR).
We don’t believe that while the West is sitting on sidelines in this war, would all of sudden jump and act just because baltic states are NATO members. There will be late fear-driven excuses that “it’s not a war, it’s a ___ insert some late euphemism for war here…” and therefore action is “not yet” necessary. Here are some sanctions. Putin’s taking the Baltics states (population 6mil) will be faster than Ukraine (population 44mil).
The time to act and confront the evil is now. It will be too late if Ukraine falls.
But what about all the other wars we didn’t get involved in? Well, we can sit this one out and watch Russian artillery shoot Ukrainian buildings and people, or we can say NO.
