Next this war that you call Biden's war seems to be between Ukraine and Russia. It also seems to be going agains the Russians. So will you please stop trying to carry water for the former president of the US of A.
Please stop carrying water for Biden and his cronies.

The West started the war, in 2014. After Obama probably green-lighted it.

Ukraine was murdering their own people, so Russia invaded in 2022.

The conscripts that they have been pushing in to the meat grinder that is called war are getting punished and when and if they make it home those stories are being told.

Trump greenlighted this when he tried to get dirt on his percieved political opponent. So just go back to having your face in front of Faux News and try to not be shocked when Russia capitulates everything to include the entire Donbas region and Crimea.
Hey 'ol souldja, you might want to read up on what really led to this mess, before spouting ignorance.

Yeah, yoo crain is doing so well over half the population fled the country, and most who stayed are old people.

You might want to put down your print newspaper and get out of the house once in a while.

But wow on that last paragraph. So the U.S. is controlling the battlefield by not providing certain weapons at certain times? And this is being orchestrated by whom?

Speechless.
Gotta love how this clown has a terminal case of TDS.

As for the debate on providing Abrams and Leopards taking as long as it did was a hope that it would not escalate across to say Armenia or Poland. With the latter it would trigger a NATO response and we would officially be in WWIII.

But the current Republican party is responsible for a lot of the problems going. No chiefs in three of the military branches (Marines Army and Navy) with Air Force to be without a head this month. Congress wants to cut every program and service that they can name. But so far there are more sane people in congress then crazies.
You are clueless.

Tanks have been obsolete for at least 30 years. Russia is salivating at the prospect of blowing up those old Abrams dinosaurs.

I don’t support Russia, nor do I support Ukraine. I don’t care where the Russian-Ukrainian border ends up being. I’m more interested in securing the Mexican border, not the Ukrainian border.

I consider this whole thing nothing more than a border dispute that we should not even be involved with. Poland is my red line, not Ukraine.

I also support taking the sanctions off of Russia so we can all get back to making more money. The donor class is making a ton of money off the weapons systems being given to Ukraine. How about growing the S&P 500 so us little folks can have more money in retirement?
Ukraine is a corrupt dump, just makes me chuckle these useful idiots support this BS.
