Russia is like Green Eggs and Ham to me...I do not like them...nt

Here's hoping Ukraine will celebrate Russia's "Victory Day" by blowing up lots of Russian stuff..nt

Would a US Embassy or other installation in Ukraine be considered part of NATO?

Just wondering about this with the reopening of the US Embassy in Ukraine. If it is hit during a Russian attack what would be the possible consequenses?

Watching CNN (I don't do much) and they have an anti choice advocate...

on and are mostly letting her freely use right wing talking points including untruths with little or no rebuttal...things like "the majority of americans support ending Roe vs Wade" (paraphrased a bit). Sickening....

The Russians just announced that their Flagship in the Black Sea, the Moskva has sunk...

Heard this on the France24 live stream youtube.com channel...no link sorry...

Listening to LePen right wing French Presidential candidate and Putin lover...

after she seems to be coming in 2nd to Macron and will likely be in the runoff with him...she sounds much like a typical RW jerk in this country and is spewing (to me) what sounds like a typical "word salad" of that political affiliation (in any country)...imo

Jon Stewart is on France 24 (not really)...


Mark Owen-France 24 news anchor

Jon Stewart- Didn't know how to show two pics together...sorry

Thinking about the US denial to Poland of the transfer of Polish Mig-29 fighters to Ukraine...

Wondering if this very public refusal to agree with Poland about the transfer of Mig-29 fighters to Ukraine by using a Nato airbase in Germany is really a giant "head fake" (to use a basketball term) by the US, Poland and Nato and the transfer of the fighter jets has already been planned/accomplished in another way. Giving deniability to the US and Poland about the risky implications of the transfer....Just a thought...feint within a feint...chess move....

Where I've been getting my news...

Really soured on most domestic (US) news sources like CNN and MSNBC (still watch a couple of programs until I get tired of commercials).

My main sources these days:

DU

France24

DW

SkyNews (no longer owned by NewsCorp)

BBC World News sometimes but they don't stream live for free...

Al Jazeera (a bit of a grain of salt about this one)

I have a free three month youtube.com (not youtube tv) and watch most of these by live stream through my Fire TV Cube device...works well...minimal or no commercials and much better, not so opinionated reporting from these services...

International Space Station and Russia...

According to my search there are currently 4 Americans, 1 German and 2 Russian astronauts on the ISS. Maybe the two Russians could be asked to leave asap, since that country no longer follows international norms...I imagine there is some tension up there. Just wondering....
