Are we any better? We can't even get them (Ukraine) batteries (or a way to obtain them) in under several weeks? Putin must be LHAO.
Maybe not, but the USA can't defend the entire world. And Yes, Putin sees this as a cake-walk. Ukraine has been independent for 20 years, and they have faced Putin for nearly 15 of them. If they have no sense of trying to maintain their own culture and uniqueness among nations, have had no fear of Russia in that time, and their government has instead spent its time trying to see how much money they can steal, then its really not a nation - and its a fantasy for the USA to think it can be defended.
