I actually think politics is just a big bag of beautiful words that leaders use to advance their nation’s interest without coming on too strong. With just enough charisma and the politically-correct words, any leader could make another nation think twice about their actions.
The funny part with the whole Ukraine-Russia dilemma is that they’re using beautiful words while they do with their actions otherwise. Actions speak louder than words and we can hear you clearly, Russia.
Recently, Russia had invaded government offices and military bases in Crimea. Crimea is part of Ukraine with 60% being Russian speakers, and a small community of Russians live in this part. Russia advanced its soldiers to invade the buildings. Pro Russians and Ukrainians protested against each other for Crimea’s annexation.
All of this happened because the new Ukraine Government had stripped the Russian language as part of its languages.
It was funny when the US condemned Russia’s actions in Crimea. They called it a violation of international laws as it was an invasion. However, looking at the US’ track record, they have got no right to condemn Russia, having invaded different countries accused of terrorism only to find nothing.
Yet the UN does nothing.
Words are beautiful things, but actions will always say who you are. In case of the US and Russia, both of them just want to appear the hero in the Ukraine crisis, because Ukraine can go from east to west depending on who’s coercing them.
