Russia continues to attack Ukraine. Hoping the US will approve sending more aid to help Ukraine defend itself. Putin is hoping and praying that US leadership changes in 2024 to help him in his war.

Should we be concerned about this?

If NYT is the source, why doesn't "disclose.tv" link to the NYT article that the source comes from?

Idk, perhaps they don't feel the need to link to them?

Sad news on journalist Gonzalo Lira jr.'s death in Ukraine. He was living in Ukraine since before the Russian invasion happened.

Nyt isn’t free.

Although the report does not suggest any of the weapons had been improperly diverted or misused, it states that evaluating whether weapons had been diverted was beyond the inspector general's scope.

Ukraine levels up the fight with drone strikes deep into Russia
Unable to match Putin’s military might, Ukraine is engaging in ‘smart warfare’ to attack the enemy’s oil and gas supply lines
https://www.theguardian.com/world/2024/ ... nto-russia
Over the past three weeks, Ukraine has wreaked havoc with Russia’s energy infrastructure.

So far this year, Ukrainian drones have struck at least four Russian oil and gas terminals across the country. The attacks are part of a growing asymmetrical campaign by Kyiv to cripple the industry and to deprive Moscow of the billions of dollars in global revenue it uses to fund its war. About half of Russia’s $420bn export earnings last year came from oil.

After his early failure to seize Kyiv, Putin has ramped up arms production, transforming Russia into a war economy, and he has sourced additional munitions from North Korea.

Putin’s armed forces now have more of everything: shells, armoured fighting vehicles, tanks, ballistic missiles, aviation and infantry strike groups. Ukraine, meanwhile, is having to ration its use of artillery as western supplies dwindle and as Republicans in Congress continue to block $61bn in security assistance to Volodymyr Zelenskiy’s government.

There are legitimate reasons to not vote YES on this bill.

It sounds like there's some kind of big national security threat today that everybody is all aflutter about? I put it here since the rumor is that it's Russia-related, but let's wait and see.

I think they are talking about Russian nukes in space.

I'm sure you guys heard that Putin blamed WW2 on Poland in this "interview". Because they didn't cow tow to Russia's demands, they were "forced" to invade. Carlson is anti-American. He can live there. Please.

Can you imagine if some brown skinned American immigrant journalist did a news interview where he went to an enemy nation and raved about how much better things were there? How many "go live there, then" messages and hate he'd get? LOL.
