It's not as if it's some raving leftwing piece. It's liberal/conservative, hardly radical. It only seems so because the so-called liberal media has lurched so far to the neo-con right and totally abandoned sober and realistic analysis in favour of dogma, ideology and wishful thinking.
This kind of analysis should be the foundation of all liberal thought about what's happening in Ukraine and why; sadly it isn't, far from it.
Will there, I wonder, ever be an honest reckoning about why liberals and vast swathes of the soft left jumped so foolishly on the latest western war juggernaut?
