Ukraine right now is facing an enormous threat from a resurgent Russia. (Russian President) Vladimir Putin has been quite naked about his desire to reconstitute as much as possible the old Soviet Union, Cruz told the Associated Press. I have a particular responsibility to assess firsthand the current and future military threats that could jeopardize our safety and the security of our allies.
I wouldn’t put it past zero and his minions to provide lax security for Senator Cruz. Remember Benghazi....
Way to go Cruz.
I want Cruz to be President, I trust he will represent America well. Though now days Ukraine needs arms and men willing to use them, not well wishes from western politicians. Also this is the strongest evidence yet that he indeed will run.
Ted will be doing more fact finding trips, because he will be running in 2016. Cruz/Palin, Cruz/Walker or Cruz/LePage would be three great tickets.
Cruz should avoid getting photographed driving a tank, wearing any funny looking hats, or shaking hands with any neo-Nazis while he’s over there.
There is noting in or about Ukraine that is an essential USA security interest. Other than the desire to see self-determination in Ukraine, what else is there?
"Deny Russia"? The Russians have enormous political, security and commercial interests there and also enormous incentive to protect those interests.
No, I'm not saying it's all legitimate, but I am saying it's REAL.
Inevitably, they win because it's worth more to them. We'd do well to STFU and figure out how we actually meet our existing NATO obligations, over-extended as they are.
QUOTE: “Cruz spokeswoman Catherine Frazier said no taxpayer dollars will be used on the trip.”
Conversely, Hillary and Pelosi don’t even buy their own liquor in flight.
