  1. “You know what kind of defense systems we need.”
    Why are we supposed to provide them? Not to be insensitive but if you knew what kind of defense systems you needed, why didn’t you have them in place already?

  2. Imagine you in the courtroom where the defendant has no right to say anything, and even if he tried, he would be muffled by the crowd. The prosecutor sees his opinion is not opposed, makes more and more wild acquisitions. Crowds go crazy and demand action.
    We need to hear the Russian side. Please return RT and other Russian channels.

  3. Happy Evacuation Day everyone.

    In 1776 the British (globalists of their day), were forced to evacuate Boston by a group of ragtag revolutionaries who wanted freedom and self determination.

    Let’s remove ourselves from foreign adventures, many of which have been brought on by false narratives, costing our lives and our wealth, but benefiting the few.

    There is no Soviet Block now. Time to exit NATO, eliminate CIA and take care of our own borders.

  4. People calling for an NFZ don’t realize what a massive escalation it would be. It’s not putting up a sign saying “you can’t fly here.” It’s enforcement and commitment to directly engage and shoot down Russian jets. *An act of war.* Aside from the massive escalation, an NFZ is an enormous operational commitment, and goes well beyond just patrolling the skies with fighters. It would mean suppressing and destroying enemy SAMs (including those in Russian territory), and that would further provoke Russian response. It’s naive to think that this wouldn’t escalate quickly into a nuclear conflict.
