I agree on most of your points, most notably that what the media is telling us has little to do with reality.

But I also take this a step beyond and look at a much larger picture.

For example, this conflict is acting to move the world towards energy independence and the end of oil. The problems with burning oil go far beyond "global warming". In fact, the risks of "global warming" seem to me to be rather exaggerated and the least of our concerns when it comes to burning oil, but air pollution at a local level - particularly in urban areas where it is concentrated - have seriously negative effects at population levels. The requirements of getting oil have also tended to destabilize governments around the world - including Ukraine, whose people deserve a much better government than they have ever had.

And having traveled a bit and seen lots of places, I very much liked Ukraine, because of the people. Being myself descended from peoples who spread throughout the world because they were mistreated at home I see current events as beneficial to the world (even if individually harmful to Ukrainians) because it will spread the Ukrainian people far and wide, where their presence will ultimately benefit both the world and Ukrainians-as-a-whole. Hopefully they will bring their cuisine with them - one of the best in the world.

I also recommend looking up a recent interview with Scott Ritter, the former UN weapons inspector who is hated by the U.S. government because he told the truth about Iraq. His perspective as to what is actually going on in Ukraine is eye-opening.
