The battle of Donbas could prove decisive in Ukraine war

If Russia prevails in the battle of Donbas, it will mean that Ukraine loses not only land but perhaps the bulk of its most capable military forces, opening the way for Moscow to grab more territory and dictate its terms to Kyiv.

South Korea says North completed prep for new nuclear test

South Korea’s top diplomat said Monday that North Korea has completed preparations for a new nuclear test and that only a political decision by the country’s top leadership can prevent it from going forward.

______________________________________________________________

It seems to me that things are getting pretty serious in other countries other than Ukraine. Iran is closing down all the tracking devices that they allowed the U.S. to install to follow their nuclear testing. They defy Biden, and thinks he is weak.

In North Korea, there are many ballistic missile testing going on, and they just completed a site to test nuclear testing.

China is pushing the limit on several fronts. Flying in spaces that are prohibited. Challenging the U.S. for defending Taiwan. Teaming up with Russia.

In my opinion all this is happening because we have a weak president. He doesn’t seem to want to do anything about all of this mess.

I pray for the president to wake up every day.

EXCITING NEWS!!!

We just past 15,000 subscribers this morning! It makes me feel so happy to see so many of you that have subscribed. I know that what is printed has some meaning to you from the high number of new subscribers each day.

Today is D-Day. June 6th. It is the most important day in Military history. Normandy and its beaches were overwhelmed by thousands of troops, and their efforts changed the war as we knew it.

I had three Uncles that fought in that war. Two received Purple Hearts. They were my heroes.

I have a military book to recommend to you that is all about D-Day 1944. It is called, D-Day June 6th 1944: The Climactic Battle of World War II, by Stephen E. Ambrose. The book is a New York Times Bestseller. It is over 600 pages long and loaded with details of battles and decisions that were made.

I highly recommend it.
