We’ve got a lot of hot takes from failed Democratic House candidate Pam Keith. She’s proclaimed there’s no difference between Donald Trump’s role in the Capitol riots and Osama bin Laden’s role in 9/11. That’s because 9/11 ceased being the worst thing that happened to America in her lifetime on January 6.
We’ve also seen a few hot takes on how to handle Vladimir Putin. Rep. Adam Kinzinger tweeted that “we own the skies” and called for a U.S.-led no-fly zone over Ukraine, which of course would lead to U.S. pilots shooting down Russian jets. NBC News chief foreign correspondent Richard Engel the U.S. could likely destroy the Russian military convoy headed toward Ukraine, but would the West watch in silence?
The West has been arming Ukraine to fight for itself, as it should, but Keith says that right now is the time to drop the mother of all bombs on Vladimir Putin’s hidey-hole.
If EVER there was a justification for a preemptive strike, it is right now, against a madman hell bent on destroying the world to appease his ego.
If EVER there was a time to drop a MOAB on a bunker, it’s RIGHT NOW, on Putin’s hidey-hole BEFORE the obliteration of Ukraine.

We don’t think Putin’s in hiding … that was Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.
Is this a satirical account?

This is a really good post for anyone who hopes for a future as a legal professional, elected official, or military officer, to delete. As fun as it might sound, one does not simply nuke the top of the chain of command of the second largest thermonuclear power on the planet.

Ukraine is taking volunteers to fight seeing as you're so eager

Unfortunately this isn't the time.
NATO will deal with it.

There’s a reason cooler heads prevail. Not that we all don’t want this right now.

Much as I would like to see a squadron of F-35s reduce that column of reinforcements into smoking ruins, it would pretty much start WWIII. I think there was room for improvement in our response, overall it's an appropriate and apparently effective response.

We cannot get involved… Russians must remove Putin. If we get involved, sentiment against the war will change in Russia. Right now Russia is fighting cousins. Once NATO gets involved they they will be fighting foreign invaders.

After this, I’m unfollowing you. WWIII is not on the calendar.

Right yes let's start a nuclear war that will go great

If EVER there was a reason for keeping Pam out of politics, it’s RIGHT NOW, BEFORE the obliteration of the world.
— Didrik Sæderlind (@JonaldBimp) March 1, 2022
Pam, I submit that you don’t know what you’re talking about. If there was a way to strike while nearly guaranteeing we could destroy all their nukes in flight then we would. But to date, we cant. This kind of escalation of rhetoric regarding a nuclear power is not a good idea.
