  1. What good will it do to come up with ideas in Watertown to settle the dispute between Russia and Ukraine? How about none! One would think, that after 20 years of war in Afghanistan and a dubious withdrawal, our President would think twice about rattling swords with Russia over their alleged “invasion” of Ukraine. I only wish that he would do something about the “invasion” closer to home on our southern border, where tens of thousands of people are illegally entering this country with no money for food, housing and medical care, which will be picked up by the citizens of this country in this time of non-stop inflation. As a confirmed anti-war advocate, I can only wonder what many who voted for Joe are thinking now over this sudden turn to the right?

    • So you are defending Russian aggression against Ukraine? How sad.

      People who want peaceful resolution of this problem, including our own President, should continue to speak out.

  2. This President is happy to have all this commotion in Ukraine. It takes the news off of his failed policies in our country, such as the disastrous Afghanistan withdrawal and 13 loyal military people being killed, high inflation and the border crossing invasion of people and drugs. Also, he is not a friend of Ukraine as his son, Hunter, got millions of dollars from Burisma Holdings, one of the largest private natural gas producers in Ukraine. He was on the board of directors. Hunter had no experience in these types of businesses, but it is said that he got the connections through his father. And then V.P. Biden threatened then Pres. Poroshenko that he needed to fire the government’s top Ukraine prosecutor who was doing these investigations into these corruption issues at Burisma to keep things quiet. Otherwise Biden would withhold $1 billion in loan guarantees unless Shokin was fired. That official was fired. President Zelensky keeps saying that he is not worried about Russia invading as they have been dealing with this for a long time. However, Biden’s continuous rants are destabilizing Ukraine’s economy by encouraging everyone to leave the country.
