I just saw in an article that Trudeau and Zelensky lauded a WW2 survivor of a volunteer Ukrainian unit. They apparently overlooked the fact that he was a volunteer helping Hitler.
How many years are we prepared to support Ukraine? Until Putin dies of old age? Maybe it is NATO who needs to step up or demand a compromise. The war is at a stalemate and has been for some time.
I am surprised that the elephant didn’t steal the cup
We all need to step back and read the history of the twentieth century. The USA was isolationist before WWI. By 1917 it was clear we were deeply connected to Europe and had a national interest to enter the war. After the war ended isolationism prevailed and we failed to participate in any activity that would prevent another war. Hence WWII. We had to fight a truly global war. After WWII ended a new tactic was employed. We would participate in rebuilding Europe and provide a facility for the United Nations. That worked a charm until the Russian dictator thought he could get away with invading Ukraine. He’s been stopped so far. Getting mealy mouthed weak now would only encourage him to continue. If the Russians aren’t stopped in Ukraine he might annex Belarus and go for the Balkan states. Then we will be sending troops to Europe as more than peace keepers. Our kids will be dying. And the risk for nuclear holocaust will be as real as it can get.
Arbeit macht frei
Broad agreement undercut by a tiny faction of bomb throwers.
Putin supported Trump, republicans must support Putin.
The “Freedom Caucus” is TOTALLY AGAINST FREEDOM!!!! They want a DICTATOR named trump to rule all!!
Proper name: The Freedom is Slavery caucus.
“Freedom Caucus” is the usual Thuglican misuse of the language to see if they can mislead others. See also “pro life” and “compassionate conservatism”.
And just another misrepresentation of what’s going on. Some want separate appropriation bills, not some monster bucket of money that has a lot of waste included and is usually followed up a week later for special spending bill that suddenly popped up.
Want to fund Ukraine? Put a number in a bill and vote on it. One page should do it. Break the number down by humanitarian, military, and corruption categories.
Let’s see where everyone stands.
The Freedom Caucus only cares about their freedom, no one else’s.
Someone should ask the “freedom” caucus what exactly it thinks freedom is . . . Should be good for giggles
Shutting down churches and suspending elections must part of freedom.
“Freedom Caucus” == Fascist governing.
Toddler Caucus. Throwing the equivalent of a hissy fit and acting like they are in the “Terrible Twos”.
The Republicans have to do what the boss tells them to do. And they’re not going to go back on the boss. Unless they’re of course prepared to “fall” out of windows or die by accident with poison.
