It’s so easy to sanitize tech stories about murder weapons. Just say “Ukraine” in the title!

    I’m actually surprised he’s pro-Ukraine, given how much of a right-wing scumbag he is (Trump supporter and all)

    Also, the whinging about weapons is unhelpful. Ukrainians can’t defend their country against Russian aggression with hopes and dreams.

      There’s a simple answer:

      “We made a lot of money under Trump. We made even more money under Biden. I think we’re going to continue expanding whoever is in office next,” said Luckey.

      Which is why I continue to whinge about war, regardless of the topic. The military-industrial complex is a scourge on our society. Unfortunately, the appearance of a" justified" war doesn’t change that fact, even if we want Ukraine to win.

        There’s a simple answer:

        Yeah, but it’s still surprising. Most Trump diehards are pro-Russian. I almost have to respect Luckey for being driven by money above all else; at least this makes him a known quantity.

        As for your other comment, I can’t even begin to imagine how that stands up logically. Russia could steamroll whoever they want if we weren’t armed.

      I don’t really understand why maga are so pro-russia. I get that Trump&Putin are best buddies, but i would expect that republicans would love to pour billions in the military industrial complex. I assumed that the military lobby had have more power than the private interests of a single corrupted person

      NATO/Russia 3rd world war, still reasonably limited to just two countries, for time being.
