@numinous102 @Gerashchenko_en Hence, with 3% of our annual defense budget, we’re not only helping a key ally show that democracy defeats dictatorships and sending a message to China, Iran, NK et al, but also helping Ukraine to obliterate our biggest threat. This makes China essentially a stand-alone threat
@WarMonitors 1980’s NATO sans aircraft. That’s what’s in Ukraine. Javelins - 1980s Other MANPATS - 1980s Stingers - 1980s M777s - 1980s HIMARS - 1980s The only exception are the British Starstreak MANPADS which came into use in the 1990’s and which are awesome. Again, no airplanes. Yet
@beth_holbrook8 Russian war. It’s Russia’s war. Ukraine is only defending itself.
@dim0kq I am more confident in total Ukrainian victory than you, since I see a financial collapse imminent in Russia. Therefore this issue worries me the most. Loyal Ukrainians should be calling those who have left and encouraging them to return to rebuild Ukraine. The world should fund.
@juliavkril I agree with all of those and they are all correct. That said, I like “the Ukraine” because it deserves the distinction. It’s unique.
