    Gotcha, but that is not much different as the EU is pretty much most of NATO.

    Gonna be a lot of pissed off elites in Russia.

    Putin clearly misread the world.......I think Crimea made him overconfident.

    So Biden did what Trump couldn't do - get Germany to almost 4x its military spend. So yeah Biden, right? That's how you play this game?

    Yes...
    The EU, in 'watershed moment,' announces it will send weapons to Ukraine, while also shutting its airspace to Russian planes and banning state-owned media

    F that. This is a perfect opportunity for our government to lead and yet we see jack $hit from our government. What I want in MY government is an official twitter account from the White House or State Department replying to the tweet "We got your back. We are on the way". We have assets all over Europe and these people are being told essentially "back of the bus" like its 1950s USA while they are fleeing a warzone. NO.... get someone at the embassy in Warsaw to get off their a$$, go to the border, and bring them to safety. I don't care if we have to fly them to an airbase in Italy or whatever.

    Just irritates the hell out of me when we have opportunities to show what this country is supposed to be and we get radio silence. This isn't a Biden thing either. I will bash the hell out of Trump or any republican every chance I get. I hate them all.

    The Belgian Prime Minister just explained that sending military aid (Belgium sends e.g. out 5,000 machine guns, first aid, helmets, fuel... to UKR and troops to the Romanian border) is not provoking, just ´defending´. I wonder where this ends.

    Putin and his invasion has elevated Zelenskyy into an iconic figure. A freedom fighter for the ages.

    I am so jealous of Ukranian unity.

    In any world can you imagine an army of Karens having to work on a Sunday. In any world, can you imagine Trump picking up an Ak47 and going to the front lines to defend the country. Cruz, Hawley, MTG, Gaetz, Nunes, Jordan.....these people would be tripping over themselves to make back door deals with invaders trying to get leadership positions in the new world after the US collapses.

    Yep, nothing you just said surprises me at all. I've seen it, not my kind of people.

    Impressive turnaround, but is flying a eurofighter. or F15 like flying a MIG or Sukoi? there's got to be a learning curve.

    God bless 'em for making a billion dollars out of it, but Tito's is just regularass vodka. You could pour it into a plastic handle and 97% wouldn't tell the difference.
