    Per CNN live updates, Poland & the Czech Republic have banned Russian airlines from using their airspace. I believe so has the UK. Separately Delta Airlines is severing connections with a Russian airline (need to find the name) and says it will help current ticketed passengers with alternate arrangements.

    Maybe he watched that John Demjanjuk documentary on Netflix and realized there were a bunch of Ukrainians in Ohio.

    Dumb straw man ... I never said they didn't talk, I said you were making up the part where you claimed the US shared it's military strategy for dealing with a Russian invasion with China. Now show me part where it says the US told China it's plans of action if diplomacy failed ... Time to put or shut up.

    Now show me the part where it says they didn't.

    And you're not my father or husband so you don't get to tell me to shut up.

    Okay, maybe not on par with Putin, though like his frenemies and enemies, his dog probably hates him for leaving him in a frozen house for his little jaunt to Mexico :)

    You're just speculating with no evidence to support it whatsoever. And your husband gets to tell you to shut up? I hope not.

    And you're claiming it was *only* pictures of where Russian troops were. That's what your claim is. I quoted the article and your claim is that I didn't prove my assertion. I did. What encompasses "intel"? It's your claim it's just photos. Ok prove it.

    If I had one he could. Would I listen? Probably not but that's neither here nor there.

    I've proven my point. Intel was provided. Your assertion that Intel is only photos and could only be photos is the issue. That's YOUR issue not mine.

    I'm done with this argument.

    The main difference is that one simply has much more power than the other, I'm sure in his soul Cruz craves it, but Cruz is a flabby Princeton debate nerd, not a KGB/FSB operator so he really doesnt have the stuff to claw his way to that kind of power anyways. But all those Cruz types do think they have what it takes to be an operator, because they are no less obsessed with masculinity than the other.

    NATO supply trucks are entering Ukraine through Poland to provide resupply of military equipment:



    And a number of NATO members have agreed to provide any military equipment Ukraine requests:

    There's only one way to test this theory. We make Cruz president of Russia, and welcome Senator Vladimir Putin of Texas.

    Nope ... Never said it was "only pictures" ... You have quite a knack for making up stuff, though.

    The Intel is defined in YOUR article as being Russian troop locations...

    You’re always big on the blame. What should have been done? Trump had signed an agreement with the Taliban without involving the Afghan government.
    Weaponry, including nukes, has changed since then. That being said, if Putin was to start committing genocide in Ukraine, one would hope that the rest of the world would intervene.

    How do we stop it, other than what we already are doing?

    Do you realize that the Keystone pipeline transports oil, etc from Canada through and to the United States? Last time I checked, Canadian oil was considered foreign oil since it was produced in Canada, not the USA. When you have a factual error as bad as that one it tends to make me believe your post has no credibility.

    All the people online saying we need to 'do more' getting guns and signing up to defend Ukraine. Should be an army of millions!
