Defining the Friends of Peace Activists

I know I added this comment to a post already, but I think it bears repeating on its own: Why aren't Western "peace activists" rushing to Mariupol to be "human shields" to halt Russian aggression against Ukraine?

Oh. Right.

The enemy of their enemy is their friend, I guess.

UPDATE: American troops will stand with our friends, as we deploy to Romania and Bulgaria and as we get a warm welcome in Poland. This is the kind of shield that matters.

UPDATE: And while I'm at it, let's get on REFORPOL (and post-Ukraine Crisis I'd like an actual heavy brigade on hand) and maybe sending Marine equipment to the Baltic States.

We were warned, you know.
