(DCWatchdog.com) – Breaking Now: This morning, in an effort to appeal to the emotions of the United States Congress and all Americans, President Volodymyr Zelensky of Ukraine asked a Joint Session of Congress to “Remember Pearl Harbor…Remember September 11th.”
As National Review noted:
“In a direct plea to Congress Wednesday, Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelensky asked for the U.S. to enforce a no-fly zone over his country, inviting outside military intervention to stop the bloodshed from the war waged by Russia.
“‘Remember Pearl Harbor…Remember September 11th…Our country experiences this every day, right now, at this moment, every night for three weeks now,’ Zelensky said, referencing the historical attacks on American soil.”
President Zelensky also said, “American companies should leave the Russian market immediately. All American ports should be closed for Russian goods, he said, as ‘peace is more important than income.'”
And in another appeal to the humanity of his audience, President Zelensky played a graphic video of the death and destruction that Russia’s Vladimir Putin has brought to Ukraine.
