And yet the US has zero active or threatened invasions going on.

You must be speaking of another US. I was referring to the USA - the one on planet Earth that has its military in over 100 countries.

Yeah, all there legally. It's tough to lock up China, Russia, and iran, this much is true.

And we aren't going to be introducing a UBI for Mexico in their current state.

What is UBI?

Universal Basic Income. I was saying that we aren't going to have a Marshall Plan for Mexico, at least while an anti-American is in charge there.

Mexico isn't creating the drugs passing through there in large part. To the extent they are cooking fentanyl with Chinese chemicals, this is also their border problem.

Nearly all the drugs from South America, including cannabis, cocaine, ecstasy, methamphetamine, and fentanyl pass through Mexico and across the border.

The US has lost its drug war.

So what is your solution? We aren't going to ban guns anytime soon. Complete decriminalization has exploded homelessness and petty crime where it has been tried. And we aren't going to be introducing a UBI for Mexico in their current state.

Drugs go north and kill many tens of thousands. Guns in turn go south and kill many tens of thousands.

If this Administration would reinstate the Trump policies and seal the borders, we would see less of this

Considering the drugs come through legal points of entry for the most part, no, you would see the same amount of drugs.

Where do all the drugs come from? Mexico can seal its borders far more easily than the US can seal its border.

It's the same shared border.

Drugs go north and kill many tens of thousands. Guns in turn go south and kill many tens of thousands.

RK - What is going to prevent us from continuing to arm Ukraine to the teeth to prevent Russia from getting to the parts of Ukraine where people live?

Elections and future policy direction of new governments ( in US and Europe ) would be the most obvious one.

You failed to take Kyiv and Kharkiv even before western weapons arrived in large quantities. Things ain't looking much better for you today.

Ukraine will not be conquered is my point.

That is quite likely UCP, but i dont think Putin wants to ' conquer ' whole Ukraine. He wants control of Donbass and a neutral west Ukraine. This mess will most probably end up with the lines more or less as they are now. Question is how much more time and lives will be lost by prolonging this.

You will achieve a "neutral" Ukraine with all of the NATO weaponry NATO chooses to put in there. There is literally no way for Russia to prevent this.

They’re not our allies. That’s like saying Iran is an ally.

Israel started as the victim but it is now the aggressor. The extremists in Hamas have got their wish

Like 9/11.

Who was the US committing aggression against after 9/11? The Shiites and Kurds in Iraq are much better off and I bet the population of Afghanistan has fond memories of the days of the US administration there.

I’m saying, you can shell out all the money the U.S. has the offer, it’s not going to save Ukraine.

Objectively false as Ukraine did a bang up job of holding the Russians back with the restrictions placed on them by Republicans, and by the war being a stalemate we win by keeping our treaty allies safe. Also the US can offer trillions as it has reserve currency status.

In the meantime the rest of the world will form their own trading relations and alliances, and move away from dollar hegemony.

How's that working out for you? I hear someone sold a bond and did a non-US dollar transaction somewhere.

Mr GoodmanToday 07:06 am JST

So what's the grand total of military assistance provided to Ukraine by the USA ?

I've seen the figure of $107 billion. Considering it should be $100 billion a year until the Russian menace is done, we are not sending nearly enough.

Will this end the invasion or just prolong a peace agreement ?

How can Ukraine possibly defeat Russia ?

I admire Ukrainian tenacity for defense however isn't it time to make a deal ?

There can be no peace with fascists on the move and the only thing worth negotiating is how wide the DMZ should be.
