Putin told Bush Ukraine was not a real country. Well, Ukraine keeps proving him right. Real countries have borders and the ability to protect them. Ukraine expects others to defend it but who wants to defend a people not willing to defend themselves? Perfect example is Senator Chris Murphy balking at sending small arms to Ukraine because they would be wasted due to lack of training. Now Ukraine is actually disarming the only real patriots in Ukraine. It is this attitude in Ukraine that is causing NATO and Europe to drag their feet on providing assistance.
