A MAN is remembering the Ukraine war with a sense of nostalgia because at least that was relatively clear-cut.
Depressed current events follower Tom Logan is pining for 2022 when the news was dominated by a war that was straightforward compared to the one between Israel and Palestine.
Logan said: “Ukraine and Russia is your classic David versus Goliath tale with a de-Nazifying lie thrown in to update it for modern audiences. None of this ‘both sides are doing bad stuff’ bullshit.
“It’s got the defiant Zelensky. That boat that told Russia to go f**k itself. Offensives that proved Putin’s military wasn’t quite as all-powerful as everyone feared, like in Star Wars. I’m not saying I miss the invasion of Ukraine but you have to admit it was a simpler time.
“You could proudly add the Ukrainian flag filter to your profile picture taken on a drunken night out or fly it in your garden if you were middle class. Try doing that with Israel or Palestine. No wonder the Wembley arch pussied out.
“Of course there was the odd complication like the Azov Battalion being a bit too keen on the Nazis. But you could easily brush that off by remembering Ukraine good, Russia bad. Simples.
“Israel on the other hand were the victims at first, then they did that whole evacuation thing, and now f**k knows what’s going on with that hospital. I’ll have to soldier on with not having an opinion until it’s all resolved. It really is a tragedy.”
