Best army in Europe? We should welcome them with open arms [rim-shot!] once they get their corruption under control.

@#1 ... once they get their corruption under control. ...

Yeah, once Ukraine got rid of fmr Pres Yushchenko, Ukraine started down a path to get corruption under control.

However, that endeavor has been interrupted [intentionally to prevent Ukraine from joining NATO?] by Pres Putin's unprovoked invasion of a sovereign Ukraine.

#2 Putin attacked Ukraine because he saw they were heading into NATO. Ukraine was ridding itself of the corruption that Putin uses in Russia to make himself and his buddies billionaires. His goal was to overthrow Ukraine, install a puppet government and then raid the economy for himself and his friends like he did in other former USSR countries. His goal was to prevent other nations from joining NATO and pushed Sweden and Finland into applying for membership. His buddy Erdogan is trying to kill their membership.

Unfortunately, the signed contracts give Russia leverage because of how near-sighted the leaders were who adopted them. It's as if they created the documents and thought, "We can trust Russia. It's not like they have a history of doing bad things and going against treaties and conventions."

"His buddy Erdogan is trying to kill their membership."

No, he's trying to get concessions out of them that will benefit him locally, specifically with fighting separatist groups in Türkiye. Erdogan doesn't care about Putin. He's clashed with him a number of times in the past, and at this point Putin doesn't really have anything to offer him. It's entirely self-serving.

#1 They will never get their corruption under control. It's who they are. Nazi killers. Why the West wants them in NATO is totally about screwing Russia. They offer nothing but location, up Russia's ass.

The Ukies are so damn dumb they can't even see how they're being used as money launderers and bullet catchers.

If they try to rejoin the Russian orbit they will be attacked by NATO.

Ask the Iraqis what alliance with the US is worth.

One anti western leader and the West will destroy Ukraine more totally than Russia has.

I doubt if NATO membership will be approved for Ukraine. To do so would mean World War III between NATO and Russia. Think about it. Think!

The Ukrainians have more than proven their worth to the alliance. With Sweden and Finland, NATO will be stronger than ever.

Them joining NATO is in response to Russian aggression. Putin is strengthening his adversaries both militarily and in resolve. Russia is wraker than it has been since the fall of the USSR, maybe weaker. This is entirely on Putin.

Russia has found itself in the midst of the biggest military miscalculation since Hitler invaded Russia. Ironic that Russia is falling into the same folly.

The best part is that we (US) are getting all this on the cheap. An excellent strategy by our DOD, even if such results were unfathomable a short year ago.

On the cheap? You mean Deaths? It's certainly not cheap in dollars. Using others for bullet catchers is cynical and depraved. The American public would tolerate very few American deaths for the Ukraine and NATO knows it.

The whole US strategy is to bankroll the deaths of others while taking no immediate risks ourselves.

It's not brave,or moral.
