Why Ukraine Doesn’t Want the War to End

If you’re anything like me, you are a bit baffled at why the war between Ukraine and Russia is still ongoing. I mean, this is 2023; it’s not like it takes days to march across the country anymore or send communications back and forth from the front.

In any case, I’m certainly not the only one wondering. Or with ideas on why the two nations seem so reluctant to end it, especially with neither side seeming to make much progress one way or another.

Tucker Carlson also has a guess.

He discussed this at some length on one of his more recent episodes of “Tucker on Twitter.” Tucker believes Zelenskyy is making a power grab.

No, he’s not vying for Vladimir Putin’s seat or even his land.

Instead, he’s trading in his title of “president” for “dictator.”

As Tucker posted, “Ep. 7 Irony Alert: the war for democracy enables dictatorship.”

As we all know, Washington, the Biden White House, and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy all claim this is a war for democracy. Hell, even congressional Republicans believe it is, or at least say as much.

But then we have announcements like the one Zelenskyy made declaring that no elections, at least for president, would be held until the war is ended.

As Tucker said, “Democracy in Ukraine seems to be suspended by the world’s foremost democracy advocate himself, Field Marshal Zelenskyy.”

It does seem a bit ironic, doesn’t it?

I mean, here we are, supposedly funding a war for democracy (no doubt another reason Ukraine doesn’t want to end the war.) And yet, Ukraine just canceled their elections, making Zelenskyy the leader for however long it takes.

We have a war for democracy taking place in two countries where democracy no longer exists…

As Tucker said, “Wars for democracy always cancel democracy in the process.” And he’s not wrong. History proves as much. The United States’ entry into WWI, for example.
