Joe Biden has another foreign policy catastrophe on his hands.
War in Ukraine has broken out on his watch.
And one Hollywood actor on the ground in Ukraine has a shocking message to Americans.
Russian President Vladimir Putin again proved himself to be a brutal dictator when he recently invaded Ukraine.
Many thought he would stop after claiming the Donbas region in Eastern Ukraine, which voted in a referendum in 2014 to break off and join Russia; the region is mostly composed of ethnic Russians.
But Putin advanced all the way to the capital of Kyiv, dramatically escalating the possibility of a major European theater.
Hollywood actor Sean Penn is on the ground in Ukraine filming a documentary, and he’s urging Americans to get involved in the conflict.
Ukraine is the tip of the spear for the democratic embrace of dreams. If we allow it to fight alone, our soul as America is lost. (2/2)

Biden has been reluctant to commit military resources to the conflict.
He sent 8,000 troops to Poland in case Putin threatened a NATO ally, which could trigger a catastrophic World War.
However, the United States and the international community have pushed back against Putin’s war of aggression.
Despite Democrats’ attempts to somehow shift blame to Donald Trump, it’s clear that Trump’s foreign policy posture kept Russia at bay.
Trump armed the Ukrainians, sanctioned Russia, backed out of a nuclear deal, killed 200 Russian mercenaries in a Syrian bombing, and threatened to hit the Kremlin if Putin invaded Ukraine.
It’s not an accident that Putin made incursions during the presidencies of George W. Bush, Barack Obama, and Joe Biden, but not Trump.
Many celebrities have virtue-signaled by expressing support for Ukraine, but at least Penn is putting his money where his mouth is by putting himself on the ground.
Although some called out his support for Ukraine when he had backed socialist dictators in the past.
Remarkable that you speak about democracy when you, among other Hollywood actors, supported and took millions of dollars from Hugo Chavez and now his disciple Nicolas Maduro.

Misinformation about the war has been flying in all directions.
Turncoat Republican Adam Kinzinger got caught spreading misinformation on at least two different occasions.
This is how smart @AdamKinzinger is.
He fell for a Sam Hyde meme. pic.twitter.com/T1k5JhqvTz

Hopefully, Penn being on the ground can provide better insight into what is actually happening in a sea of propaganda and misinformation.
