""Friends""

Mexico announced they will apply no sactions on Russia 

Brazil...no sactions, due to the fact they do not want crop inputs cut off.

Now....Russia uses a weapon that only a coward would use...and used near a school....a fuel air bomb....its not targeted...and are banned by international agreement ...thus a war crime.

""Russia is our friend""

Re: ""Friends""

I  am in favor of being energy independent.

I remember when we were held hostage by the arabs.

We need to be energy independent and energy diverse....yes biofuels, solar and wind is part of the mix.

Also take advantage of new technology...such as using wind generated power to make N.
