The Bible demands that we send endless Javelins, Stingers and suicide drones to Ukraine.

From Fox News:
Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi was blasted by critics overnight following her speech late Tuesday on the House floor in which she quoted the Gospel of Matthew in order to shore up support for the $40 billion Ukraine aid bill that was later approved by the chamber.
“The brutality of Putin is not just what he’s doing in Ukraine, but the impact that it is having on food for the world. So when you’re home thinking what is this all about, just think about, ‘When I was hungry, you fed me,’ in the Gospel of Matthew,” Pelosi said.
Her comments came as part of a speech largely centered on what the massive amount of financial aid would do for the Ukrainians amid food shortages in the country due to the war with Russia, despite shortages being felt by Americans here at home.
Some critics slammed Pelosi’s reference to the Gospel by asking if she would apply that to other policy points, as others joked that “defense contractors” were the ones truly gaining from the aid bill.
When I was hungry, you fed me Javelins, Stingers and suicide drones.
When I sought out peace, you paid me $53 billion in bribes to keep the war going and send my countrymen into a meat grinder.
