Well given how poorly the Russian military has performed, Putin may need Kim to help him out.

i am not surprised at all.

american century is over mates...

Because a country of servants that can't keep the lights on signed some document from an equally desperate country? Pretty low bar for showing the decline of America.

And he's still not letting up on Ukraine, by the time all this is over, that country will just be a smoldering pile of rubble with nothing, just photos to remember its once pretty history and when or if it gets rebuilt one day, the country will look like one gray depressing Berlin.

And it is all the fault of the MAGA. Why come here to post inanities when you know Russia can be stopped? Kyiv did so in spades under a Democratic House.

Funny, I thought it was the Obama administration that orchestrated the violent overthrow of the democratically elected government of Ukraine and the installation of a rabidly anti-Russian regime, leading directly to the present situation in that country.

That would be an extremely incorrect reading of history: a puppet regime didn't kill 100k Russians and throw them back from Kyiv and Kharkiv.

I hope so!

Ukraine should have made a deal with Russia.

Kyiv did so in spades under a Democratic House.

The Dems are Globalists

Ukraine should have made a deal with Russia.

What kind of deal? A surrender without conditions. Putin wants the whole of Ukraine.

The Dems are Globalists

No, they are not.

Now, yes, more than ever, Ukraine should have never entertained the thought of joining NATO.

No, they are not.

Yes, they absolutely are, that is the reason why Trump is resonating with millions because he's running on an American First policy.

Putin's trip to North Korea is an example of his failure as a leader. When you have to go begging to Kim for allies, you know you are in trouble.

They were never given that ultimatum directly because the goal is to eliminate them completely.

You're reading ultra-leftwing sources now? Fortunately it is easy to prove that the Istanbul agreement is a fiction by the very fact that animals like Putin don't suddenly have moments of consideration for the other side.
