Here’s the haps:
Failure to enforce our sovereign borders and allow over two million undocumented persons to come into the country unimpeded. Giving aid and comfort to enemies of the United States by providing eighty billion dollars worth of military equipment to the Taliban and deserting American citizens in a ridiculously botched pull out from Afghanistan. And now, a strongly worded rebuke against a terrorist who has made an invasion of a sovereign nation with a duly elected democratic government.
And who is helping the Ukrainians fight this despot? Mercenary troops from all over the world are being offered high wages to go and fight. Prior military service members who have been deployed anywhere are being actively sought out, especially any with European experience. Five years of military experience in Europe can get you two thousand dollars a day. That’s cool, I suppose, except how many of those will ever make it home and collect the big paychecks they are being offered?
It’s nice that some big-name corporations are sanctioning Russia although I think it’s probably going to hurt the common people of the country a lot more than it will the government. And why are we buying oil from them? Joe could open the reserves that our country already has and reopen the Keystone pipeline.
And where is the much-vaunted United Nations in all this? Where are the peacekeeping forces? Why are there no boots on the ground? Putin has plainly and blatantly broken international laws and nothing is being done by anyone. You Europeans better watch out. If he is allowed to take Ukraine with impunity how long before Poland and Romania fall? This is a man who has stated that he is sorry that the old Soviet Union broke up and wishes it were back together.
