More opportunities to grift. It never ends.
Nope. The money we send gets channeled to the pockets of the politicians one way or another. Absolutely disgusting.
You're going to see A LOT of construction and other companies that all happen to be owned through sheer coincidence by politicians' brothers, cousins, aunts, nephews all soaking up even more money from the people. They never let a tragedy they create go to waste.
Or...or... We nuke it and nobody "has" to rebuild it.
Glass'em mother fuckers.
Our bridges can collapse, but hey…let’s build Ukraine new infrastructure
The UniParty don't give a shit about America.
It's probably where the "elite" are all planning to go after they collapse the U.S. It was too 3rd world for them, needed some serious remodeling.
I wonder how we can grift some cash?
You could claim to fight voter fraud and stop the steal
Start up some "clean energy" companies based out of ukraine and "lobby" for taxpayer money.
Just identify as a marginalized person. Voila..free gibs!
Sell carbon credits!
Be one of the ((them)) getting the interest on 411 billion for 100 years?
Blackrock is grinning ear to ear
Is Halliburton and KKR still around?
How convenient to award no bid contracts to launder even more money, oh, I mean, rebuild.
Debase USD, print a fuck ton more and continue shipping billions to Ukraine
This is guaranteed to happen in the next year or so. Thats why pedo admin doesnt want peace, or peace talks and instead force zelensky to continue the war - they have a ready excuse to manipulate the dollar
Money laundering ain't cheap
And a 10% vig for the pedo.
Not if we let Russia rebuild it.
Best idea yet. Just Walk away and leave Russia holding the bill.
That would be the best case scenario, in reality will might happen is Russia annexes the productive parts of Ukraine and leaves the european and US taxpayers footing the bill for the worst shit of the shithole.
After all those promises and backroom deals someone needs to give the big guy and his friends their cut.
Isn't Russia now in control of most productive areas of Ukraine? I think someone said the East is responsible for 90% of the economy. Could be mistaken.
Putting the USSR back together!
Multipolar world > faggy woke world dominated by western globalists
I believe they are already working on some of the cities and towns near the Russian border and in Crimea..
How about they rebuild their dilapidated concrete jungle by themselves.
don't even bother rebuilding it, it's a shit hole.
If it's a shithole why does Putin want it. Hmmm. Might be those evil nazis. Hmmmm. He surely got them all by now.
geopolitics. read up on it, you dosser.
Or, here's a thought: we just let them remain a fucking war torn shithole with burned out infrastructure, you know, like our own cities.
We should not be rebuilding jack shit one fucking second before our own nation is rebuilt from the failed democrat policies.
Maybe they won’t purposely crash dollar to usher in fed coin until after Ukraine is rebuilt?
I'm laughing so hard right now that this could be an actual legitimate bright side to this whole clusterf**k of a travesty
And...... why should we care while the Ukraine government faggots live in luxury like our government pedos? Oh, because we'll be robbed to pay for everything.
Probably because climate change. 🤡🌍
Stop being a bigot against cold weather.
And Mexico is paying for it. We're broke.
And Mexico is broke, so your children and grand children are paying for it, if you can afford to have any.
Ukraine's New World Order Bank demands more deposits from member countries
Slaves in the USA will pay for it all.
Fuck U kraine.
Let Russia handle that! It's their territory anyways.
This is really a European problem. The war is on their continent but as usual the goverments just mostly just give lip service and a few weapons. They will not sacrifice their population in a war and they think the US is always going to carry the burden. They do not even pay their fair share into NATO. Europeans want a free ride without paying for it. They were expecting to receive Russian gas and oil without thinking of the repercussions of such an alliance. Now a world economic collapse looms in the future. Russian oil and gas sold to China and India keeps the Russian economy moving along while the US struggles.
Paypal should automatically charge everyone with a Ukraine flag in their bio $2500 to help pay for it
Why are we rebuilding? We didn’t destroy it.
AMERICAN TAXPAYER MONEY SHOULD NOT BE USED FOR THIS BULLSHIT
Taxation without representation
Russia will ensure that nothing will be left to rebuild.
Or you could open up the economy to the free market and have Ukrainians rebuild it themselves, like we didn’t in Germany after WWII.
But that wouldn’t let the World Bank and politicians take their cut, would it?
I hope Russia levels Ukraine.
That's a lot of 10 percent of the Big Guy!
I was saying last year it is going to be about a half a trillion before Biden is done
I was saying last year that people who think the military aid is expensive to wait until they see the reconstruction bill.
Now, is the World Bank normally in the business of reconstructing entire countries and are they implying we will be paying it as if it is somehow our responsibility?
You know when you have a car that's worth 1000 bucks and it's engine goes. You cut your loses and sell it for scrap. Isn't that what should happen here?
Give it to Russia. Free.
That's enslaving a country forever money.
Control over their oil and gas, control over their food production.
Joe Biden's brother is on his way to "build houses"....
That estimate is way low...easily triple that when you factor in the corruption.
Fuck off World Bank, Fuck off Ukraine
Keynes famously said that it would make sense for the government to pay people to dig holes and fill them back up again. The thought being that massive deficit spending will put money in people's pockets and spur consumer demand.
From 2001-2021, the "holes in the ground" were the pointless wars in the middle east. This retardation in Ukraine is the new way for the government to spend trillions of dollars it doesn't have. If the government ever stopped spending, these defense companies and defense contractors would all collapse.
And in other news, my children need education, wedding, car, and rainy day funds. So fuck off.
We already paid our share.
I can almost picture the meme of the guy greedily rubbing his hands together as he says this
From Zelensky's website:
tough shit it's not my problem, Fuck off and eat shit, we've already given them 1/3 of that, let the rest rebuild them, ask Russia
