    Reduce Ukraine Rubble vs. End the War - Preference?

    Is your support for Putin in this war absolute and unconditional??? In the past, you have posted that you were in favour of Albania, Argentina, Australia, Austria, Azerbaijan, Bahrain, Belgium, Brazil, Bulgaria, Canada, Chile, China, Columbia, Croatia, Cyprus, the Czech Republic, Denmark...

    Will the American howitzers result in a battle field decapitation of Russia?

    You've got to love those weird British units of measurement. My working career involved, among other things, examining old Canadian surveying field notes, dating back as early as the 1870s. So, I was familiar with all the archaic units the British used for measuring distance (perch, link...

    Reduce Ukraine Rubble vs. End the War - Preference?

    I came across that claim a week or two ago. I just did some google searches to confirm, and it looks like the cost of Iraq and Afghanistan were more like $2 trillion each. My source for the $1 trillion cost of each of the three wars is given below. I'm not sure if $1 trillion or $2 trillion...

    The Vietnam war, the Afghan war, and the Iraq war each cost the United States around $1 trillion.

    Will the American howitzers result in a battle field decapitation of Russia?

    After reading reports over the past two days of how effectively Ukraine is using the donated howitzers, I'd say that the howitzers could be the key weapon that will allow Ukraine to defeat Russia.

    Ukraine strikes back

    I'm actually a Canadian. When I graduated from university in 1981 I went to a Canadian Armed Forces recruitment center and talked to someone, but my visit confirmed my strong suspicion that I didn't have what it took to join the military. I'm starting to think that not only will Russia lose...

    Ukraine strikes back

    Another excellent video, thanks for posting. I am amazed how incompetent Russian officers are. Why in the world would they pack so many vehicles into such a small area? Around 50 vehicles were destroyed, plus who knows how many hundred Russian soldiers killed (EDIT: Forbes Magazine reports...

    Will the American howitzers result in a battle field decapitation of Russia?

    Excellent video, thanks for posting. Many excellent observations are made in the video, I recommend it highly. I've read numerous articles today which indicate the war is going very poorly for Russia: the disastrous attempt by Russia to build two pontoon bridges, low Russian morale, reports of...

    Will the American howitzers result in a battle field decapitation of Russia?

    Actually, more like $54 billion, counting aid which the US has already sent or promised. Interestingly, 151 Republican members of the House voted in favour of the aid. If you are a Republican, and this vote upsets you, then I suggest you teach the GOP a lesson and vote Democrat in the 2022...

    Will the American howitzers result in a battle field decapitation of Russia?

    No, I'm a Canadian of German ancestry. Some of my ancestors, however, immigrated to Canada from Russia. One of my great grandfathers was a bodyguard for Czar Nicholas II.

    Will the 800 million in USA be enough to turn the tide?

    Your estimate is way out of date. I believe the latest figure for US aid to Ukraine is around $54 billion, including the $40 billion aid bill which should be approved by congress within a few days.

    The only Christian denomination that I know of that has come out in support of Putin's war with Ukraine is the Russian Orthodox Church. Is that the denomination you belong to?

    Will the American howitzers result in a battle field decapitation of Russia?

    I think you're confused. Ukraine didn't go to war against Russia. Russia went to war against Ukraine. Ukraine, with the assistance of Albania, Argentina, Australia, Austria, Azerbaijan, Bahrain, Belgium, Brazil, Bulgaria, Canada, Chile, China, Columbia, Croatia, Cyprus, the Czech Republic...

    Will the American howitzers result in a battle field decapitation of Russia?

    Lutheran Church Canada, in conjunction with the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod, has raised millions of dollars which has been used to purchase humanitarian aid for the people of Ukraine. I myself have made a donation. Do you believe that any Lutheran that donates to this fund is committing a...
