"Putin is not going to stop at Ukraine," Biden said alongside Macron after talks at the Elysee Palace.

"All of Europe will be threatened, we are not going to let that happen," Biden said. "The United States is standing strong with Ukraine. We will not, I say it again, walk away."

For the sake of peace, it is essential to stand with Ukraine.

We stand with Ukraine now, or we fight Russia wherever they invade NATO later.

The United States, it's allies and all nations which treaure freedom and democracy must stand firm agaist autocratic aggression. We have learned his from a painful history.

Meantime, we need to throw these traitors out.

"A total of 46 House Republicans voted in favor of an amendment to defund NATO introduced on Tuesday night by Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia, a loyal Donald Trump ally who has long opposed military and financial aid to Ukraine"

The Republican Party has become Putin's Party.

It's so nice to see you a the conspiracy theory train. Welcome aboard!

Yeah, standing strong with Ukraine as long as Biden can hold on to power.

If Trump wins, he’ll throw Ukraine to the wolves and kiss Putin’s behind as he does.

They are already losing, but I would rather he take care of the domestic problems and put Ukraine way later on his list, the nation should always be the first priority.

As long as Biden stands firmly on his feet, he will not abandon Ukraine. Sounds cool.

The world saw this coming when Russia invaded Crimea during the Obama-Biden days.

We saw peace during Trump's admin because the US was seen as a true super power again.

Putin started his Ukraine invasion planning in 2019 when Trump was in office without knowing who would have won in 2020 and probably was expecting another Trump term. Invasions and wars don't happen overnight.

Planning and executing a plan are two entirely different things.

Yes, two years of planning but you miss the point that Putin intended to invade Ukraine regardless of who the president was and he was expecting it to be Trump.

In hindsight, the MAGA supporters now believe the US should have attacked Russia when Putin invaded and took over Crimea.

Yes, two years of planning but you miss the point that Putin intended to invade Ukraine regardless of who the president was and he was expecting it to be Trump.

And you’re missing my overall point, it doesn’t matter how many years you plan an invasion, how or if you execute it is the overall result.

No, I as well as most conservatives wanted them to have weapons, I was just against spending heavily on humanitarian aid.

I think you believe if Trump had won in 2020 Putin would have called off his invasion. Unlikely. It didn't matter to Putin who the American president was. Had Trump won then probably he would have given Ukraine zero support and just "thrown them to the dogs".

Don't forget there are less than five miles between Russia and the US.

??

Putin would have called off his invasion.

Let’s just say, he would have given it a second thought.

Unlikely. It didn't matter to Putin who the American president was.

I disagree

Had Trump won then probably he would have given Ukraine zero support and just "thrown them to the dogs".

Probably right to an extent.

Don't forget there are less than five miles between Russia and the US.

And?

Putin obviouosly had plans to invade Ukraine, after having taken Crimea. But it was not until the US had an utterly incompetant President that threatened to leave NATO, disputed with allies, and split the country into turmoil (which he is now doing even more) that Putin felt the time was right to invade Ukraine in February 2022. He waited until the U.S, appeared weak and confused to make his move.

The damage that P45 has done done to the U.S. both domestically and internationally is immeasureable. And he's not even done destroying the playground. He has gone on record stating that he trusts Vladimir Putin more than US Intelligence Agencies. He has referred to Putin as a "Smart Guy" and held a private meeting with Putin that was not recorded. Not opnly is he not fit for another term. he can not be trusted.

Given that it is D-Day it would be a poor show not to stand with Ukraine.

I forgot that you believe Trump won in 2020, with all the laser lights and everything.

Whatever, in the U.S., we have the freedom of speech and freedom to believe as we wish, that’s the very definition of democracy.

Yes, but you always, always take care of your house first before helping others

There is no doubt the US Government, people, tax payer has moved heaven and earth to support Ukraine, its people its government with political military support.

I am sceptical President of France Emmanuel Macron, when support boils down to actions and words, comes close to mirroring the US commitment.

D-Day is a historical event that is lifetimes and generations ago for most. Ancient history of courageous men.

Joe Biden was alive for D-Day.

i think he was even already in government then? Lol

D-Day remains important to those who suffered from the hands of the Nazis. My home city was bombed night after night. Thousands died. My family home was destroyed. Relatives and members of the community were killed. Young men were sent to war and too many never came back.

I guess it might be hard for some Americans to understand the sentiments because the country was never directly attacked by the Nazi.

D-Day will never fade from the memories of Europe. American presidents will come and go but D-Day will remain well beyond the 100 year anniversary.
