“I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.
Others have - and rightfully so - also spoken out about Putin's aggression against Ukraine.

Just for the record, it's not like European countries do not contribute. France(!) has decided to join the bombing of ISIS. Germany is delivering weapons to the Kurds in north Iraq and training their fighters against ISIS. Perhaps other European countries contribute as well.
"Not learning from mistakes is worse than committing mistakes. When you don't allow yourself to make mistakes, it is hard to be tolerant of others and it does not allow even God to be merciful."
“To do evil, a human being must first of all believe that what he’s doing is good" - Solzhenitsyn
"...with the terrorists, you have to take out their families." - Donald Trump
The US government informed the Syrian ambassador in Washington before the US airstrikes against ISIS in Syria commenced. Damascus did not object.
Putin's invasion/annexation of Crimea in 2014 is little different than Saddam's invasion of and attempt to annex Kuwait in 1991.
However, the Syrian government would approve of a US led bombing campaign if it targeted ALL of the militant Islamic groups fighting in Syria, instead of supporting the others.

Killing one person is murder, killing 100,000 is foreign policy
As we have drones firing missiles all over Asia and the Mideast, killing indiscriminately, Obama calls Russia an aggressor. Truth is stranger than fiction.
If Russia and the old Warsaw Pact were trying to move into Canada, or Cuba, we would be very defensive, justifiably.
