Putin is gobbling Ukraine.
The non-American West is wringing its hands.
The vacationing American president isn’t even doing that; he’s at the beach.
In the 1994 Budapest Agreement, Ukraine agreed to remove all nuclear weapons from its territory in return for a commitment by Russia, Britain and the US, “to respect the independence and sovereignty and existing borders of Ukraine.”
Have you heard of Britain not living up to an agreement to respect sovereignty, and what happened next…?
