Even before the first shots were fired in the Ukraine invasion, I have been highly complimentary on the way that Biden has run rings around Putin. He lectured him, he warned him, and he declassified classified documents to show...
Fair Warning. This is going to be a wee different from what you're used to on this subject. Instead of one long article on a single situation, this article is a recap of several relevant events that have happened over...
