Someone whom Biden can trust on the Bidens' family affairs in Ukraine, in a heated electoral contest in 2014. 2/

This is the NATO business model. But I believe NATO will be terminated by its own clients because not all businesses can expand indefinitely, some end up……

Usually, after a tragedy, a foreign head of state sends condolences to their counterparts, or via their counterparts, to the country in general.
What Trudeau is doing here is adopting social divisions and fractures from the US and projecting them onto the Canadian landscape.

Before, they used to do it to bomb Palestinian refugee camps and terrorize Lebanese. Now, they do it to bomb Syria while confusing Syrian radars. 1/ Lebanon definitely needs the S-300 missile system. But the state is so much groveling before the feet of the US, all the time, that I do not see this happening anytime soon. 2/
