Putin’s 40 miles of killing machines taunt Ukraine’s capital: LIVE UPDATES
Natalie’s Commentary: War is meshuggaas and fraught with destruction no matter which side is involved. We always question the intentions of the side of those invading someone else’s territory, borders and subverting their sovereignty.
This war has certainly escalated to a much more serious matter. Ukraine has been fighting very hard and consistently to stand firm on their ground and protect their rights as a nation. Ukraine’s desire has always been to join NATO to have more countries support to help defend it.

The United States, NATO and US Congress would have to weigh on the final decision to help Taiwan. Join forces with world leaders in hopes of preserving the manufacturing of tiny microchips which provides up to 80% to the US alone and worldwide. ~ Natalie
