Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
BRENNAN: Your republican colleague Senator Tommy Tuberville just this past week said on Steve Bannon!s show that Volodymir Zelensk* is a dictator and unconstitutional, and he said this about Vladimir Putin [VIDEO CLIP: He doesn't want Ukraine. He doesn't want Europe. Hell, he's got enough land of this own. He just wants to to make sure that he does not have United States weapons in Ukraine pointing at Moscow.] Those echo some Russian talking points. Senator, I wonder if those remarks from your fellow senator represent the GOP.
CRACKER: No. It represents him and him alone. If you spend fifteen minutes studying Putin and what he wants, he wants to recreate the Russian empire. He's not going to stop in Ukraine. We celebrated the 80th anniversary of D-Day. It was a failure. It was the unnecessary war described by Winston Churchill. We had a dozen chances to stop Hitler. It's not about NATO. It's not about American weapons in Ukraine. It's about a megalomaniac wanting to create the Russian empire by force of arms. If you don't stop him, there goes Taiwan [?!]. We've been slow as hell helping Ukraine, but Senator Tuberville's analysis really misses what Putin's all about. He's an outlier, I think, in the Republican Party. I like him personally, but what did Trump [?] do to get the weapons flowing? He created a loan system. They're sitting on ten to twelve trillion dollars of critical minerals in Ukraine. They could be the richest country in all of Europe. I don't want to give that money and those assets to Putin to share with China [?!]. If we help Ukraine now, they can become the best business partner we ever dreamed of. That ten to twelve trllion dollars of critical mineral assets could be used by Ukraine and the west, not given to Putin and China. This is a very big deal, how Ukraine ends. Let's help them win a war we can't afford to lose. Let's find a solution to this war, but they're sitting on a gold mine. To give to Putin ten to twelve trillion dollars of critical minerals that he will share with China is ridiculous.
