“100% of the population of Ukraine does not want to be bombed.”
Those people in the East didn’t do either, but this had been going on for 7 years.
And those guys in Syria and Yemen apparently aren’t so bad because we’re also providing the weapons needed for what made those wars possible.
Moreover, wherever there is a government/leadership that is highly protectionist with regard to their economy, the West funds all kinds of opposition movements like Xinjiang, Myanmar, Thailand and Balochistan (Pakistan) to the maximum. As a result, violence escalates further or is crushed over Xinjiang.

Russia is another country that, in the eyes of Western capitalists, is not open enough. It is impossible to influence from the inside. That is why they (US/EU) are trying to weaken Russia in other ways in the hope that it can no longer resist the desired changes. A 2019 RAND study (354 pages) commissioned by the US government illustrates several ideas. The study’s table of contents provides a good overview of the options discussed. A selection of those quoted below. So far, the plan to lure Russia out of the tent has succeeded, suddenly making a number of other options discussed in the study possible. Now you just have to wait to see how everything is done.
