Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The place is indeed in an awful state. Oui has always denounced the evils of US policies and their European plus ME support, big businesses, three-letter agencies, etc...

So far, so good, but he went so deep down the rabbit hole that he's been printing all the Putin regime talking points for months: Ukraine is the aggressor, doing a genocide in Donbas, running biological weapons labs, the Azov militia and neo-nazis running the country, etc...

He's also been putting up diaries and comments by the kilometer, as if quantity does compensate for quality (it doesn't), where he often was, as you noted, the only commenter - that is, before he was joined last January by one of his fans who wanted to have "a sane [] discussion on covid".

As we're now watching the third week of a war of aggression carried out by a ruthless and cynical dictator based on a historical lie, some here have seen nothing but US imperialism and are scared, not by Putin, but by Blinken. Sad, truly.

It is not by sending more weapons and untrained students that you will stop the war.

Sending weapons to Ukraine, for some years now, is precisely what has prevented Ukraine from becoming a Russian colony in 3 days.

And Ukrainians don't want to merely "stop the war", they want Russian invaders to go home.
