If anyone is interested, here's a pretty good analysis of the situation.
How Putin's Ukraine Invasion Is a Disaster for Russia | TIME.com
Many Trump supporters have lots of problems, and those deplorables are bringing those problems to us. They’re racists. They’re misogynists. They’re islamophobic. They're xenophobes and homophobes. And some, I assume, are good people.
What worries me is how few people remember how many times the USA has sent the U.S. military into countries all over this planet to protect and rescue American citizens without asking permission from anyone.
If it's OK for the USA to do that, why isn't OK for Russia to do it?
Is there one set of rules for the USA and another set of rules for Russia?
If so-Fill me in, Because this is news to me.

The empty high-minded rhetoric is amusing, though.
April Fool's Day is the one day of the year
that people critically evaluate news articles before accepting them as true.
My experience in traveling is that if you're in trouble in a foreign country, you are on your own and better have a lawyer.
Around 2009, Israeli military boarded a ship in international waters and kidnapped a former US congresswoman and 2008 presidential candidate. They kept her and several others in prison, and where was the U.S. Military? Nowhere to be found. Obama? Raising money somewhere. She was finally released, but the military didn't rescue her.
