Letter: Is U.S. pulling on Ukraine, too?
First Published Apr 19 2014 07:07 pm • Last Updated Apr 19 2014 07:07 pm

I feel honored and proud to consider myself a citizen of the United States of America. I vote and obey the laws of the country. I read the Constitution of the United States regularly, and I find that "arm-bearing" part simply outdated and in need of revision.

I said that I vote. It is very important to me. I see it as a privilege of liberty to be allowed to vote. I like to have access to accurate information, the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth kind of information about our country’s internal and external affairs.

Example: We know that Russia annexed Crimea. The U.S. media have informed us that Russia has also been agitating in the eastern Ukraine, perhaps with the intent to annex those parts. All this is useful information, but is incomplete.

What is missing is: Has the U.S. been trying to pull Ukraine into NATO? This missing information is important to a conscientious and loyal voter. It could be a matter of war or peace. Let’s ask the authorities.
