When War is Peace
Elon Musk Changes Direction on War in Ukraine - A Radical Reaction For Members Only
1) Maybe Starting WWIII is Not a Good Idea
After being involved in prolonging the disastrous conflict himself by seizing the opportunity to test his Starlink system in war, Elon Musk concedes that stoking more war in Ukraine is pointless and that Ukrainians should have settled for similar to the peace offer that PM Johnson & his British establishment had previously vetoed.
2) You Don’t Say?
Readers of the Radical Dispatch would have known that this is the only practical solution long ago, back when The Next Current Thing (TM) ceased to be about cheerleading tyrannical Covid mandates, and had become instead about posting the Ukranian flag, all with zero awareness.
“..it is now possible to see what Russia’s interests are in Ukraine, and how to bring this conflict to an end without provoking World War III.

Corrupt Zelensky responded to Musk by rejecting peace with his usual zero-sum sabre-rattling ungratefulness towards anyone who’s ever offered him any help.
If you call for peace you must be a supporter of Russia.
Since we’re playing zero-sum games, and as readers of the Radical Dispatch would already know, perhaps the right response to Zelensky here then would be:
“Which do you like more: one who supports Nazis or one who supports Russians?”

3) Playing Chess is Not Real War
The former chess world champion Gary Kasparov is no longer happy with Musk. So he has decided to get abusive.
Before we list all previous Radical Media pieces on the Ukraine war for your reference, here is Gary Kasparov rebuking Elon Musk and appearing to want more war…
