Listen to this guy. He compares Ukraine to Afghanistan & Iraq by suggesting that, unlike those middle-eastern countries, Ukraine is “civilized” and hasn’t known “decades of war”.
– Iraqis and Syrians watching the news,sympathizing with Ukrainians minding their own business: sigh..so sad
– Unqualified and shameless American reporter: Iraq and Syria are uncivilized and not white so they don't matter
Iraqis and Syrians: ……. https://t.co/DYy98j4v2Y

Iraq: the cradle of civilization. A modern nation before the US bombed it to hell.
Ukraine: They’ve been fighting Russia for 8 years. Multiple, massive tank battles were fought there in WWII. Kiev (the old name) was occupied by Nazis for 3 years. Ever hear of Babi Yar? I think Ukrainians have experienced a few atrocities, and have fought back bravely.
Maybe he should have simply said what he was thinking: Ukrainians are white, Iraqis are brown.
