Belarus has little to send,

Enough though as well as China has a lot.

and Ukraine already is weathering the mighty Iran.

And still losing.

That doesn't mean that because China doesn't want to be seen it is not helping Russia in some fashion. Don't be gullible.

Doesn't need to. You said stopped and his fascist campaign being stopped in place is enough to humiliate him.

How so?

Making declarative statements based on Faux News is not winning you arguments. Ukraine is exporting more and more grain through the now liberated Black Sea.

Not just Fox News, but take your pick.

You don't care about Europe, though, and that is Europe's problem right?

But you're taxing my money, I don't care, but I do care about my money.

And they won't be displaced if the battle lines are stopped. There will be more ability for Ukrainians to stay home if the country remains free.

Veeerry big "if"

Liberals literally pay for your flyover states.

A lot of minorities need help, this is very true...

You have yet to explain how Russia will destroy Ukraine now when they have been trying to do so for two years. Time for me to sigh.

How much is Russia's infrastructure has been destroyed and how much Of Ukraine's has been destroyed? Yes?

All the more reason they need to be supported.

Europe should fully support them. The US should also support them at the negotiating table.

So how would we stop Putin? Go to war? Really? Not sure you're thinking this through...

By supplying Ukraine with arms. Not sure you're thinking this through...

You thought this through? Help Ukraine by supplying them with more weapons so the war will continue and more Ukrainians will die in a losing battle?

This American approves. The US isn't being invaded like Ukraine is. There is no existential threat to the US from the southern border like there is in Ukraine.

Ukraine's enemy is going head-on at them.

All the more reason they need to be supported.

The US' enemies are sneaking in through the back door.

Asylum seekers are not enemies.

The Russians aren't shooting at us.

Yet.

The terrorists are walking right into our country to wreak havoc on our people.

America first!

The FBI is quite good at surveilling threats. In any event, it takes $$$$ to seal the border and Republicans won't pony up.

Sending weapons from the US is not the answer for World Peace

Not sending Russia packing is not the answer for world peace.

Fund Ukraine. Make every step westward send more fascists to their beds.

China, Iran, and Balarus will send more aid to Russia to send more Ukrainians to bed as well.

Belarus has little to send, and Ukraine already is weathering the mighty Iran. China doesn't want to be seen openly sending arms to Russia to fight its pathetic campaign and there are limits to what you can do covertly. Also none of those countries will be sending bodies to make the Russian mothers feel better.

Battle lines being stopped is clearly Putin being stopped. QED.

He did? Did he withdraw?

Doesn't need to. You said stopped and his fascist campaign being stopped in place is enough to humiliate him.

American weapons are significantly more reliable as we can see by Russia faceplanting all of the time and failing to make any gains. And American weapons will be blowing up Russian bodies without the same thing happening to Americans. And then we have peace because the bear will have no teeth or claws anymore.

Ukraine is Pretty much destroyed as a nation,

Making declarative statements based on Faux News is not winning you arguments. Ukraine is exporting more and more grain through the now liberated Black Sea.

it will take a generation to rebuild everything, so more American weapons and less refuge for Ukrainians would be a lot of displaced people.

You don't care about Europe, though, and that is Europe's problem right? And they won't be displaced if the battle lines are stopped. There will be more ability for Ukrainians to stay home if the country remains free.

No lottery necessary: the most recent Ukraine bill is 1% of GDP and the US still has reserve currency borrowing power.

I know for liberals that doesn't mean anything because it's not their money so what would they care?

How so? With nukes? The US will open up some gaps in the frontline if Russia tries that level of war criming.

Yeah, as usual, liberals are just not thinking deeply at all....sigh...

They will still lose, so I am not getting your point.

If Putin is not stopped in Ukraine he will enter other countries knowing the West and the US are powerless and weak to do anything.

So how would we stop Putin? Go to war? Really? Not sure you're thinking this through...

UA needs a peace,to acchieve this both sides must talk about peace.UA dont need prolongation of conflict.

For a $25T economy, amounts in the tens of billions are a rounding error.

at battlefield there will be no changes for Kiev junta at all.

No changes is good for Free Ukraine. Russia has the junta with rebelling generals and everything.

money cant solve everything.

It's good that there are weapons to send, then.

think how much USA and west have invested in Kiev regime and what are real results on the ground?

100k terrorist casualties is a good result.

UA needs a peace,to acchieve this both sides must talk about peace.UA dont need prolongation of conflict.

Ukraine needs an unconditional ceasefire and Putin has to be forced into it.

2 years plus and the battle lines has not changed.

Nothing will either.

And that's a great thing: chess grandmaster Putin will have been stopped in his tracks by #30 on the military expenditure list.

money cant solve everything.

Absolutely.

But weapons can, which is what is being sent.

Not enough when money can translate into enemy casualties. Also a stalemate is a win for Free Ukraine.

UA needs a peace,to acchieve this both sides must talk about peace.UA dont need prolongation of conflict.

The only way to save what is left of that country.

Nope, grandmaster Putin has yet to take a major city.

this will be game changer for US taxpayers only.

Kremlin talking points.

In that case there will be no change for Moscow junta either. You'll still be bogged down in Ukraine for eternity.

pack and go to UA and help them to fight to Russians.show your will to win and to defeat Russia there.

How is your training going? When do you go to the frontline?

UA dont need prolongation of conflict.

You are going to have to beg harder for their surrender.

Excellent news! Not for Russia of course. This means many more Russians going home in body bags to grieving mothers and wives.

Unfortunate, but that's what happens when you invade another country in order to steal their land.

Everything would be fine with promised weapons, but... There is no men in Ukraine to manipulate or to control it. It is reported that the AFU brigade, which defended Ocheretino (one of the directions of the Russian offensive in the Donetsk region), simply fled under the onslaught of the Russian army. This is the third brigade that has fled in two weeks - previously it was the 67th at Chasov Yar and the 115th at Avdeevka.

Is taxpayers’ money is literally wasted on payments to foreign countries when the U.S. border is as hokey as Swiss cheese.

One would hope that the ammo is already palletized and ready to roll onto the back of a line of globe masters before the ink dries on Biden’s signature.

Hard times ahead for the Russian cannon fodder.

Got to drag this war out to at least November which is too bad for the poor Ukrainians needlessly dying for a lost cause. Hardly surprising that recruitment is down to almost zero and many more are refusing military service and trying to leave the country.
