    •  Fill In the Bank (0+ / 0-)

      Ukraine has a bunch of billionaires, whose $billions were extracted mostly through the past couple of corrupt presidents. The richest is worth $12.5 BILLION.

      Germany's got lots of $BILLIONS, and Poland, and other neighbors of Russia and Ukraine.

      This is like if the US bailed out Ukraine's banks because it was defaulting as a result of its richest people pulling their money out of those banks.

      They should pay for this. Not you and me. Why are we paying for it? We don't even have the money.
