Then again you meddling in every war is no recipe for success either..
Its a tough one because the fear is if you let go then everything you build thus far will collapse but imo you are getting played by russia and china, west is incompetent, weak & unprepared for any serious cirtumstance such as global recession or war. The rest of the world will revolt against you, UK and France, all considered to be the Empires. You rely on others for your quality of life, greenies have made it real difficult for you to exctact more from your soil, public policy is also anti energy that isnt renewable, but u need first dependable energy, and cheap. When you have that and you diversify it then you can invest in the 'future' energy stuff. Unfortunately people believe China and its alies (brics) and those idiots from imf & wef. Its all about survival man, Putin is not crazy he is playing chess against you, russia has always been autocratic, its too big to be ruled by the simpletons, nobody wants this war but it has started. USA and EU went too deep in ukraine, trying to sway them away from russia influence and such. For Russua Ukraine is very important because many ethnic russians, very important strategic & economic partner, buffer against nato which was anti-soviet but became anti-russian.
