He's right, and we earn freedom and keep our troops safe today by defending our ally Ukraine.

The guy is just all over the place. Wish he would heed his own words and focus more on his own country that is falling apart.

Better his words be all over the place than his loyalties.

That's more a NATO issue but NATO is a defense alliance, and we are obligated to it no matter what trumPutin says.

We need to protect our nation from the rot within - the lies, hate, racism, scummy traitor militia trash.

The US has more than 800 military bases in more than 70 countries.

"U.S. military forces are dispersed among 85 facilities located in Honshu, Kyushu, and Okinawa. The total acreage of U.S. bases is approximately 77,000 acres. USFJ bases and facilities range in size from a several thousand-acre training area to a single antenna site."

The bases are to protect American interests.

The bases are to protect American interests.

And that's a good thing because American interests are Free Asia's interests.

I don’t think he even know what his words are.

Well, that’s why he’s losing in the polls. I agree.

Well, I doubt Biden will send troops to Ukraine, he does that, he’s done.

“Last year, the VA delivered more benefits and processed more claims than ever in our history," Biden said, crediting the PACT Act which grants automatic coverage for certain health conditions suffered by veterans by presuming they result from their military service. 

Biden looks after veterans, Trump hates them.

Support for Ukraine and Israel.

what are they involved with that we are supporting?

You think he should stop supporting Israel? Focus on his own country more? You like Biden the ‘warmonger’ sending aid to Israel.

Just all over the place.

Why do you separate Ukraine and Israel?

Israel has always been an ally of the U.S. since its creation. They have been instrumental over the years in helping us gather intelligence to capture and kill high value targets, helping us thwart many deadly threats, not to mention they are the only Jewish state that we need to defend that is surrounded by nations that would kill every single Jew if they had the chance.

No American troops are in Ukraine.

US special forces are Americans, so that makes us involved in the war. Semantics won’t help you.

Some American troops are in Gaza building an aid pier. You don't even mention Israel.

American-Israelis, some.

The US support for Ukraine is part of the NATO agreement. The EU and other countries have also given aid to Ukraine.

Ukraine is a NATO member?

You are very mistaken, Ukraine is Putin's war, not Biden's.

Biden didn’t have to get involved or involve US troops, but he did.

Not so good at gathering intelligence when two years ago Netanyahu was warned about the Hamas attack that happened on Oct 7.

The are no US Special Forces in Ukraine. If there are they are doing a poor job.

You would have ignored Ukraine and it's massive destruction by Putin?

1Why do you separate Ukraine and Israel?

I already explained.

Not so good at gathering intelligence when two years ago Netanyahu was warned about the Hamas attack that happened on Oct 7.

No one says they’re perfect, but I’ll take 98% over 2% any day of the week.

The are no US Special Forces in Ukraine.

Yes, there are, the Pentagon begrudgingly confirmed that.

If there are they are doing a poor job.

I agree.

You would have ignored Ukraine and it's massive destruction by Putin?

I don’t care.

Notice how none of that is a US interest. It would be more valuable to have the entire Arab world on our side fighting terrorism than tiny Israel.

US special forces are not in Ukraine or you would be hearing about "training accidents" all of the time. People ask questions where soldiers died in the US. It can't be covered up.

You are very mistaken, Ukraine is Putin's war, not Biden's.

Biden didn’t have to get involved or involve US troops, but he did.

Biden didn't involve US troops and our money and equipment is needed to defeat and hold back our actual enemies.

Biden didn’t have to get involved or involve US troops, but he did.

Actually, he was obliged to;

The Russian Federation, the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland and the United States of America reaffirm their commitment to seek immediate United Nations Security Council action to provide assistance to Ukraine, as a non-nuclear-weapon State party to the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons, if Ukraine should become a victim of an act of aggression or an object of a threat of aggression in which nuclear weapons are used

https://www.securitycouncilreport.org/atf/cf/%7B65BFCF9B-6D27-4E9C-8CD3-CF6E4FF96FF9%7D/s_1994_1399.pdf

Ukraine is definitely the victim of an act of aggression.

And when Putler announced with a smirk on 27th February 2022 that he had ordered russia's nuclear forces onto high alert, how was that anything but a threat of aggression in which nuclear weapons are used? Do we have to wait until there are actual mushroom clouds over Europe?

The russian federation has torn up its copy of the December 1994 Budapest Memorandum. The US and the UK could and should be doing a hell of a lot more to honour their own signatures.

I don’t care.

A simple yes suffices and ignoring gains made by our enemies in the process.

Notice how none of that is a US interest.

When it involves the ME, it always is of National interest to the U.S.

It would be more valuable to have the entire Arab world on our side fighting terrorism than tiny Israel.

Side with Arabs who equally want to see the destruction of the U.S. Especially after 9/11…yeah, sure.

US special forces are not in Ukraine

Yes, they are.

or you would be hearing about "training accidents" all of the time. People ask questions where soldiers died in the US. It can't be covered up.

They also said, there were weapons of mass destruction and aliens don’t exist. Yeah, I tust the Pentagon. Lol

Biden didn't involve US troops and our money and equipment

So he just pulled the money out of his magic hat. It was there, always…..ok….lol

And Biden continues to slide further in the polls, keep it up.

A simple yes suffices and ignoring gains made by our enemies in the process.

So why is Ukraine losing?

As a Vet, I am so happy to see someone who truly appreciates and understands what serving our country means, rather than the idiot, cowardly, draft-dodger who clearly said what he thinks of those who sacrifice to defend our country...

Calls Putin a "genius" and our Vets "suckers and losers"....
