Ukraine came to the United States aid in Iraq, which is something I once knew and forgot.

5000 soldiers at one point.

17 killed and many others wounded.

I have stated in other posts that not a single American should step foot in the Ukraine, but that was very hypocritical of me. :oops: They deserve more than slow moving sanctions and weapons that may arrive too late.

So, if it comes down to it.....I support it.

I'm not cheering.

I feel just as bad for the young Russian soldiers that are being duped by a ****ing maniac. You do know that there is confusion going on with the Russian troops right now? (Training mission?)

I can give about 9000 reasons U.S. boots on the ground may not be a good idea and they are all nuclear, where in the Gulf War 2 there wasn't that problem (even if we were led to think otherwise). They seem to care more about aid in the form of ammo, which we are giving.
