Hat trick for BoJo. Sweden, Finland, and now Norway!

The UK has something for controversial conservative leaders that step up to the plate.

🇬🇧 🇬🇧 🇬🇧

That Franco-German ''leadership'' doesn't shine too bright in comparison. In the spirit of fairness, some (week-old) post-election French action: For first time, France talks openly about sending weapons to Ukraine - Breaking Defense

France confirmed on April 29 it is loaning 12 Caesar truck-mounted guns

Macron: I want them back when you're done!

Zelenskiy: Don't worry! We'll take good care of them!

China throwing Russia under the bus?

Gao Yusheng, former PRC Ambassador to the Ukraine: “The Russian military’s economic and financial strength, which are not commensurate with its status as a so-called military superpower, could not support a high-tech war. The Russian army’s poverty-driven defeat was evident”

Gotta love how Israel tippy toes along, with each foot lightly tapping either side of the line.

One week, they don’t want to worsen their relations with Russia. The next week, they grant access to a missile system that can sink whatever is remaining of Russia’s Black Sea fleet. (Keep in mind it wasn’t just the cruiser & frigate taken out. Several drop ships & gunboats have been taken out also.)


I’m not even being facetious - it takes some real smarts & wits to assist in their force’s demise yet maintain decent relations simultaneously.

There hasn't been a frigate taken out in the Black Sea.

Both are still operational.

are they believing their own propaganda?

I'm thinking that it's probably time for NATO to ramp up the recruitment efforts amongst those who've signed on to the 'Partnerships for Peace' program.

Especially amongst the 'Stans' ;)
