Iraq’s central bank allowing trade with China to be settled in yuan is another foreign policy embarrassment & blunder brought to us by the same people telling us to trust their Ukraine strategy today. $1.1 trillion hard-earned American taxpayer dollars spent in 🇮🇶 down the 🚽.
@RepMTG I figured we have the tech to hack it by now and bring it down that way to study it. If we don't, it’s concerning, and I would much rather be spending our money on research for that than funding the war in Ukraine.

“$100 billion for Ukraine, right? So much money for Ukraine. But what about for Harlem?” These are good questions that most of our warmongering politicians refuse to answer truthfully. “We’re defending America in [insert country]” won’t cut it anymore. https://t.co/J71ryjlqLB
God forbid the Ukraine war escalates into world war or a nuclear catastrophe, but if it does, I hope all those people that voted against @realDonaldTrump remember that they foolishly chose “no more mean tweets” over peace and prosperity. https://t.co/8dR6y68f0U
Intelligent, respectable, and level-headed people like @Judgenap are speaking out about the war in Ukraine and Pres. Biden’s “catastrophic decision” to send Abrams tanks to Ukraine. It’s worth your time to hear him out.
This is one of the lines from FDR’s fireside chat on December 29, 1940, a year before 🇺🇸 entered WWII. Does this argument sound familiar to you in relation to Ukraine?
@DavidSacks History shows us that the costs of the Ukraine war are just getting started. @DavidSacks, please read this 🧵 about the lead-up to Pearl Harbor and WWII, and read the transcript from FDR’s fireside chat from December 29, 1940. The parallels are terrifying. https://t.co/5XkRWOAqFm
I don’t know if our leaders intend to bring us into direct conflict with Russia over Ukraine like FDR did with Japan in WWII. I’m concerned that continually escalating and directly involving ourselves is a slippery slope to war even if we don’t see it or believe it right now.
So, what are the WWII parallels with the war in Ukraine? More than we think, but primarily, how small escalations and increasing involvement in conflicts lead to direct combat. FDR wanted to get 🇺🇸 into the war and worked systematically to ensure that we would sooner or later.
