Listening to people who talk about Ukraine like it's some kind of important or noble ally is both comical and tragic. Naturally, anyone who bothers to think about it for more than five seconds can see that Ukraine is neither important nor noble. In reality, it is just an undeveloped, corrupt backwater with an economy that is roughly three times smaller than Nigeria's. And it is about 4,500 miles away from the US. Clearly, there is nothing even remotely "critical" about Ukraine to the USA. Ukraine could disappear tomorrow and most Americans would not even notice. Yet Americans are being dragged into a potential war with Russia over this irrelevant country. Why? Why should the average American give two craps about the territorial "integrity" of a country that 99% of Americans probably couldn't find a map? What measurable, tangible benefit does the average American derive from this relationship that justifies its large risks and costs? I'll bet you $1.5 billion that you cannot come up with a really good reason to back Ukraine's corrupt government. $1.5 billion, by the way, is the amount of money American taxpayers have sent to Ukraine's government since 2016. Just to get an idea what that actually means, just think of this: With $1.5 billion, you could pay for approximately 45,700 Americans to get a college degree. So, please explain to me why it's better giving $1.5 billion to a bunch of politicians and bureaucrats in Kiev than sending 45,700 Americans to college.
