    Well yeah! Obama’s settling disputes with the Iranians. The Yemenis are getting tarbooshed. The Libyans are kung-fu fighting. Nigeria’s still thg pits. Somalia keeps on grabbing attention. And then there’s Greece getting far too much. – they have lots of business already and no Russian invaders. Poor gallant Ukrainia has a shortage of dentures and poor English and invading Putinic hordes slavering to get at the outpost of European civilization that is Kyiv. What is needed is money and weapons – in any order to arm the valiant right wing militias who hold the ramparts of the east and ‘lustrate the ancien regime’ in the west. They know – as does Yats and Porko – what’s wrong with Eukrainia – there is no money to steal – not even from the wealthy easterners. Send guns and money so that the world will be free – to sponsor a Ukrainian refugee, or six. . Or just give Eukrainia the business.
