Look who’s calling voting ‘divisive’ and ‘illegal’

Blood-soaked US Has No Business Opposing Sovereignty Plebiscites

Who, we should be asking ourselves and our violence-obsessed leaders in Washington, not to mention the craven editors and publishers of our leading “news” organizations, is the US to call sovereignty ballots by anyone “illegal” or “divisive”? (Who, for that matter, is the US to criticize Russia for "meddling" or creating "divisions" in Ukraine, when the US spent over $5 billion by its own admission meddiling and sowing such divisions, and ultimately supporting a coup that ousted the country's elected goverment, turning it over to fascists dedicated to "killing Russians, Poles and Jews.")

In a world riven by ethnic and racial strife, it would appear that letting people use the ballot to decide whether they should try and get along with their neighbors inside some often arbitrary polyglot national boundary, or as two separate nation states, is a much better approach than having them fight it out to the bitter end, usually with larger states like Russia and the US and China, all with their own selfish geopolitical and commercial interests, vying from the outside and sometimes with their own troops to influence the internal outcome of such struggles.

Voting can never be “illegal.” It is, simply put, the best way for people to express their opinions. As for being “divisive,” there’s no way that voting can be as divisive as sending in tanks, planes and drones to kill people whose opinions one particularly leader or political group doesn’t like.
