They can't beat Ukrainian soldieers, so they bomb civilians and nuclear reactors.Obviously, cluster bombing of hospitals and civilians is deplorable. But, as is being alluded to above, Western media are portraying this as unprovoked and are deliberately providing no context. There is zero mention of Ukraine having engaged in equally diabolical actions against Russians.
Equally important is the probability you assign to Russia actually being the one carrying out these attacks on Ukrainian civilians. I don’t have conclusive evidence regarding the details of what is going on—none of us do—I can only form my own probabilistic beliefs and be open minded enough to update my probabilities accordingly.
I don’t think anyone here is for what is taking place, and to mischaracterize anyone’s view as such is disingenuous at best.
You don't need to masticate or phiosophize on the context, it's standard documented technique down the years, and even worse.
If you don't know, please do some background research.
