If Putin needs resources, why doesn’t he just claim that the Ukraine has weapons of mass destruction like we did to invade Iraq and put our oil companies back in business.
I’m sure some of the wealthy in Iraq who had ruffled Saddam’s feathers were more than happy to get help to hang him.
Now Russia is doing the same thing, and we are appalled, but grateful that we will be able to sell our oil and gas to Ukraine.
Looks like war to me.
Let’s let the wealthy duke it out this time instead of sending our kids to do the job.
