“The CDC has raised the threat level for monkeypox, as more than 1,000 cases have been identified worldwide.”

“A crucial element of any lasting peace is Ukrainian victory in the Black Sea. For this to happen, Russia's illegal occupation of Crimea must be ended.”
Someone finally said it out loud. Crimea is the whole ball of wax. Everything happening in Ukraine has been about Crimea. But the war mongers are still lying their chair bound brass off. Whoever controls the Bosporus Strait and Dardanelles controls the Black Sea. And that whoever is Turkey....
