    Should We Give More Support to the Ukrainian Government?

    Recently the President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko appealed to a joint session of Congress asking for more support from the United States. My question is, "Should We Give More Support to the Ukrainian Government? "

    Hell no! We should handle it as the former ambassador to Russia has said. And perhaps listen to Kissenger's advice. Both of whom realise that any further NATO expansion will be unacceptable to Moscow.

    Let's see..... enable Putin in re-establishing dominance over Eastern Europe..... or don't enable Putin in re-establishing Russian dominance over Eastern Europe.....

    hmm..... so difficult to decide whether or not we want a major geopolitical opponent and autocrat to be better positioned to choke off portions of western democracy....

    With the Right Diplomacy.....Putin's extension ends with his border. The dominance would extend only that far. So there would be no choking off of Western Democracy.

    Define support. If you mean expanding NATO, then no, that's just asking for trouble. If the UN wants to actually intervene, which we all know they won't because they're a bunch of pussies, that's one thing. Direct U.S. support, I don't see why. What have they done for us?
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Which is pretty much what Kissenger and the former ambassador to Russia have stated.

    No! Let's try helping Ukrainians instead. We are Empire-building on a Corporate oligarchic level. If you want to have peace with your antagonists, you do trade with them. The sanctions are exactly the opposite. Prevent trade and try to do maximum economic damage to them. There will be backflash.
