the war in the ukarine

Hi my name is Karina Lynch I am 14 years old and I go to Palos South Middle school and I want to talk to you about the war in the Ukraine. I was born in the Ukraine with my older brother Andrei Lynch and I was also adopted there. Why is this happening and what can you do to stop the war. I dont like to see my country trying to fight for thier freedom and there lives. Why cant you have the corrage to stand up for Ukrain. When I was living there I had a bad life and I had no food and water.People think that it is a nice place to be but its not. When I was born in Keave Ukraine 100 people died and also my mom and my dad and i had to go into a orfangege and waite to get adopted with my brother. Nobody wanted me and i was left there untill 2007 when my new family got me and my brother from ther. Can you plese try your best to help Ukraine out and help them fight for there freedom.
Thanks So Much
Karina lynch

Why isn't the US honoring the Budapest Memorandums? Ukraine was foolish to enter into this treaty in light of the US's abysmal record in honoring treaties (just ask any Native American.) The current crisis in Ukraine is the perfect example of why US citizens should not register or surrender their weapons. Ukrainians have been rendered defenseless to Socialist invaders thanks to surrendering their small arms.
