Questions that go through my mind every time the subject arises:
What should the next president do about the Ukraine and how many more billions should be spent in what seems a war-with-no-end?
How many nations are contributing to Ukraine’s defense?
What value has Ukraine been to the U.S. or will be in the future? What is the U.S. protecting other than another country’s democracy? What value to Russia?
What value to Russia is a Ukrainian surrender or could it be their Vietnam and of no value to occupy?
Will only weapons the U.S. sends be enough to ward off eventual control by Russia?
I assume the war has to be costing Russia big time. How long can they afford the continuing loss of life and money? More relevant – how come Russia hasn’t tripled its forces to take over a much smaller country? They were all in during WWII.
The news and any news commentary are untrustworthy which leaves me and many of you I trust frustrated not getting answers to the above questions. Biden certainly isn’t coming across with answers any different than the presidents who held office during the Vietnam War – the main reason I demonstrated against the draft while in college in the 70s. I still enlisted in the Air Force but only to avoid combat in a country I knew nothing about – similar to Ukraine.
