If there’s one factor we all know, it’s that the mainstream media can let you know one factor at some point and instantly flip their place a day later. I discover it regarding that we see articles trickle in advocating for a no-fly zone over Ukraine.
In the event you’ll keep in mind, over the course of current historical past, there have been loads of occasions the place the small fringe voices inside the mainstream media initially touted concepts that everyone thought was ridiculous, after which these concepts gained momentum and steam over time with increasingly more individuals adopting what was as soon as thought-about idiotic.
You would very nicely see the identical factor happen with this speak of the establishment of a no-fly zone.
To start out it off, Ukraine’s Zelensky has repeatedly known as for international international locations to ship their males, munitions, and fighter jets to the area to create a no-fly zone over his nation.
The Washington Put up not too long ago posted an opinion piece titled “Wish to assist Ukraine? Shut the sky.” Inside the piece, it’s argued that toddlers and infants is not going to obtain the meals, blankets, and medical provides they should keep alive and that youngsters will endure psychological trauma until America incorporates a no-fly zone over Ukraine.
Simply the opposite day, we had 27 international coverage “specialists” ship a letter to DC lobbying for a no-fly zone over Ukraine. Inside their letter, they acknowledged, “NATO leaders ought to convey to Russian officers that they don’t search direct confrontation with Russia forces, however they have to additionally clarify that they won’t countenance Russian assaults on civilian areas.”
The purpose is, there are a rising variety of individuals on the market who’re advocating for America to become involved on this.
What’s a “no-fly zone?”
A no-fly zone signifies that NATO wouldn’t let any Russian planes fly over Ukraine. How is that this enforced? With jets, missiles, and anti-aircraft weapons. Which means that if a Russian jet had been to fly over Ukrainian soil, NATO (aka America) would shoot that jet down.
To advocate for a no-fly zone is to advocate for American kinetic motion in opposition to Russian forces. It’s to argue for America to become involved in a standard battle in opposition to one other nuclear energy.
What’s Russia’s stance on a no-fly zone?
As you’ll be able to in all probability think about, for those who threaten one other nation, they’re not going to be very joyful about it. What are Russia’s acknowledged responses to threats of a no-fly zone being positioned over Ukraine?
For starters, Russian Protection Ministry Spokesman Igor Knoashenkov has stated that anyone who provides their airfields to help Ukraine to hold out assaults may have been thought-about as having joined the battle. So, if NATO (aka, American) jets launch out of Poland to shoot Russian jets out of the sky over Ukraine, Poland can be seen as truthful recreation by Russia.
That is how battle spreads.
Along with this, Putin acknowledged on February 24 that “Whoever tries to hinder us, or threaten our nation or our individuals, ought to know that Russia’s response can be quick and can lead you to penalties that you’ve by no means confronted in your historical past.”
So, not solely would Poland be truthful recreation if this had been to happen, however america would as nicely.
What are the results of a no-fly zone?
Don’t ask Congress. They apparently don’t know.
It’s comforting to know that now we have individuals which can be keen to help actions that may result in open typical warfare with a nuclear energy.
As you may have in all probability already deduced by now, the results of a no-fly zone are nothing wanting world battle. A no-fly zone is nothing apart from a euphemism for “typical battle.” Are you aware what that white crap is on prime of hen crap? Extra hen crap. It doesn’t matter the way you wrap it and what shade bow you placed on it; to include a no-fly zone is to declare battle with Russia and to start out typical warfare between two world superpowers.
If this had been to happen, understand that A) battle typically spreads, and B) battle escalates. There are quite a lot of nations on the market who hate America and would view this as the right justification to push by way of quite a lot of violence in opposition to you and your loved ones. Russia has buddies that will fortunately be a part of its aspect to combat in opposition to us. Warfare typically spreads.
And battle escalates.
Persons are all the time in search of an edge over their enemy, and that is how new weaponry is created and used.
Am I anti-war or anti-weapons? Not even shut. There’s a time for battle. However for those who’re arguing that that is what we have to do, you’re speaking about dragging my household into World Warfare 3 with a nuclear-capable nation that has nuclear-capable bombers stationed in Venezuela.
If you wish to play silly video games and win silly prizes, accomplish that by yourself time and at your personal threat. Don’t put my household in danger as nicely. As a result of for those who’re arguing for a no-fly zone over Ukraine, that’s precisely what you’re doing.
What do YOU suppose?
Do you suppose a no-fly zone would set off World Warfare 3? Do you suppose it will go unanswered? Do you suppose america ought to step in? Share your ideas within the feedback.
