  • Huh. Four of the Ukrainians who potentially could be used to install a pro-Kremlin government in the Ukraine worked closely with Paul Manifort.

    You may remember him as President Trump's former campaign manager....

      Are you implying they’re very patriotic?

      So the US is officially going to move embassy personnel and their families out of Kyiv and apparently Biden is considering sending planes and soldiers into Eastern Europe. What would we send? A-10’s and F-15’s? I would think we probably wouldn’t send F-22’s or any heavy bombers.

        If you mean could everyone mentioned in that article finish the chorus of:

        Slav'sya, Otechestvo nashe svobodnoye,
        Bratskikh narodov soyuz vekovoy, ...

        .
        .. then yes, very patriotic. They bleed white, blue, and red.

          Fighter jets, AA ground units, anti-tank units. And sign a treaty with Ukraine allowing us to put bases in the country.

          Let Putin know whenever he threatens a neighbor he just gave us a jump-off point there.
