#SFTC Statement on Ukrainian Crisis

We here at #SFTC decry war in any form and therefore in response to the Russian Federation invasion of the Ukraine we urge President Zelenski to surrender and step down. National sovereignty is not worth nuclear attack from a security council member. Molotov cocktails will not protect anyone and this is not a movie about the Alamo. We also urge world leaders not to arm Ukraine any further because it might trigger further nuclear escalation. We also accuse NATO of being an outdated organization that should have been decommissioned after the fall of the USSR. We are not expressing support for the Russian Federation in any way. It has become evident that we are now living in a Real Politk world order where countries with nuclear weapons police those without. This outcry to preserve the Ukrainian National State can lead to nothing but catastrophe. That being said, we also acknowledge that this is an information war and we have to assume that cooler heads will prevail in the long run. That Russian Federation is not run by an evil madman. At least not more so than 45 who also threatened the world with nuclear annihilation and was not reelected mostly because of that. Not because he was a Russian Spy but because he was an old grumpy man whose time had come. If you support peace than do so when it calls for you to lay down your own arms. Defunding the police which seems to have lost favor was an effort to demilitarize the streets which we strongly support. Anyone who thinks that the path to peace is demonization misunderstood the assignment.
