A NATO summit begins tomorrow in Lithuania and the big question is: Ukraine - in or out? President Biden said that he does not think now is the time to vote on that. He hinted that NATO is too fragile and he is the one keeping it from falling apart at the seems because Russian President Putin wants to destroy it. NATO members are said to be working on a sort of Junior Varsity agreement with Ukraine to assure them that NATO has its back but it is not a membership.
Meanwhile, the U.S. has said it is willing to send cluster bombs to Ukraine. These are small bombs that kill indiscriminately. According to the BBC, even U.S. allies have “expressed unease” about this.
