Two interesting twitter posts about Volodymyr Zelenskyy appeared today.
First, by Charles McBryde:
This is the guy that Trump tried to bribe into blackmailing Biden and Putin tried to bully into giving up his country. He was a comedian who became a leader in an age where leaders everywhere became clowns. What a fucking champion. #Zelenskiy pic.twitter.com/YzqM1yiYtm

As Zelenskyy said himself to talk of evacation, “I don’t need a ride, I need ammunition.” It seems Germany (and possibly others) are giving it to them.
It hasn’t come to that yet in Taiwan, and I’m hoping it doesn’t. I won’t talk tough and say what I would do if the PLA tries an assault, but I hope the foreigners have the spine to stay, to sign up and show up, and take part in the defence (or at least, as medics and providing support).
