1. Add Hunger Games to the list of dystopian novels which are the new reality.

We are in a world war and we don't realize it yet.

In addition to living in the US Civil War II.

2. Maybe it's time for international aid in getting

wheat and sunflowers out of Ukraine, by airlift if necessary, instead of shipping harvests to ports.

I think Russia's goal in this is to pressure Ukraine to remove mines around its ports, leaving Russia easier access to attacking them.

3. Yes, a famine is coming. Ukraine grows a third of the worlds wheat. No planting this year and

Last years crops already stolen by Putin.

6. The more things change, the more they stay the same...

Geopolitics is almost always about resources, food and energy being the key ones.

7. NATO summit reaffirms it's support for Ukraine vowing to give them the support they need to

Push the orcs out.

Everyone talks about the east..when the important fight is for Kherson where the Ukrainians make gains almost daily. Kherson is a major resupply route via Crimea for the orcs.

Itís not only NATO but a coalition of 100 countries helping Ukraine. Russia will not win this war.
