The news out of Ukraine is awful. The reports of torture and the mass killing of civilians gets worse every day. While news breaks that Ukraine is making gains in pushing Russia out of some territories, other reports indicate that Russia is preparing to mobilize even more troops to fight in Ukraine. The bottom line is that this war is not ending anytime soon.

The details from the conflict are disturbing and have drawn non-stop attention of the world’s media. The BBC reported this week, “Ukraine is keen to prove that the torture of civilians – a war crime – was systematic, not haphazard. Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelensky says ‘10 torture chambers’ have been found in recent days in areas here in Kharkiv province retaken by Ukrainian forces.” The story pointed to forensic teams exhuming remains from 440 graves containing mostly dead civilians. 

Americans are rooting for Ukraine to win the war yet fear the United States might be drawn into the conflict.
