Pretending to not help Ukraine directly is just childish and immoral.
For example, handling the fighter planes for Ukraine like hot potatoes out of concern to “not to provoke Putin”. PUTIN DOES NOT NEED EXCUSES TO START THE WAR! He had shown it again and again.
The US government is discouraging people to volunteer because of “potential legal issues” LEGAL ISSUES?!! The existential war has started, which is a struggle between the world tyranny and the free world! And you are talking about the technicalities? SHAME ON YOU!
The world is in real danger of repeating the WWII scenario and you are talking about legal issues and trying not to anger a bloody madman?! Chamberlain’s cowardly hypocrisy reanimated?
“If you have sacrificed my nation to preserve the peace of the world, I will be the first to applaud you. But if not, gentlemen, God help your souls.” Czechoslovakian foreign minister Jan Masaryk to Lord Halifax as reaction to announcement of allies’ betrayal in 1938.”
Putin cannot be allowed to succeed in Ukraine not just because of human suffering, but because, just like Hitler, Putin will not stop there. Moldova is next, and then Poland probably.
The whole Democratic world seems powerless to stop the genocide out of the fear of “provoking” a bloody tyrant. Again, Putin does not need “provocation” to start the war as he had proven time and time again. He will see hesitation of the West as weakness and that this childish play with the airplanes as ridiculous.
As the world watches in horror, public opinion is turning against the indecisiveness, the hypocrisy and the political games of the West.
Another infuriating problem. The West is expressing it’s outrage while buying oil and gas from the Putin regime. Can you imaging the Allies buying fuel from Nazi Germany? Europeans due to their foolish shortsightedness depend now on Russian oil and gas. Germany is shutting down ALL of its nuclear power stations and is in the process of activating a new gas pipeline from Russia.
Senate Republicans on Thursday derailed a sweeping $21 billion bill that would have expanded medical, educational and other benefits for veterans — in another chapter of the ongoing feud over amendments, spending and new sanctions on Iran.
Dick Cheney feared assassination by shock to an implanted heart defibrillator. The former United States vice-president, Dick Cheney, was so fearful of assassination by terrorists sending an electronic shock to his implanted heart defibrillator that he ordered doctors to fit a new device without a wi-fi capability.

But Dick, there are no reasons to be afraid of the terrorists. You are too valuable to them.
Dick Cheney helped Al Qaeda in Afghanistan and Iraq. The Iraq war helped Al Qaeda by fulfilling its twin strategic goals of driving up costs to the U.S. and broadening the battlefield for this war, while the shift in resources undertaken to allow the invasion enabled Al Qaeda’s recovery in Afghanistan. Preparation for Iraq caused such units as Delta Force and Navy Seals Team Six, as well as aerial surveillance platforms like the Predator, to be shifted into Iraq.
LONDON – The U.S.- led war on Iraq gave Al Qaeda the opportunity to reinvigorate its weakened terrorist network with new recruits and more funding, say experts on terrorism. The Iraq war “clearly increased the terrorist impulse,” said Jonathan Stevenson, senior fellow for counter-terrorism at London’s International Institute for Strategic Studies.
“The political masters in the U.S. and Europe underestimated the extent to which bin Laden would use the war in Iraq as a propaganda weapon to rejuvenate the movement and attract more funds,” said Paul Wilkinson, head of the Center for the Study of Terrorism and Political Violence at St. Andrew’s University in Scotland.
So Dick, don’t worry. You are being too modest. Even a coward like you should realize that Al Qaeda would provide body guards for you if you ask. You did more to advance their cause than Osama bin Laden.
Also I am still surprised that your body did not reject a heart. After all a human heart is only used in humans.
Republicans support for our war veterans. The GOP Senators who, on Friday, blocked a bi-partisan effort to pass a bill that would put veterans to work in jobs that look after the nation’s federal land while also giving our fighting men and women a leg up when it comes to getting them hired by local police and fire departments.
Paul Wolfowitz is doing great! Donald Rumsfeld in his interview with Fox News on February 8, 2011 said that Wolfowitz was the first to bring up Iraq after the 9/11 attacks during a meeting at the presidential retreat at Camp David. He wrote columns that appeared in publications such as The Independent, The Sunday Times, and Newsweek. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paul_Wolfowitz
