This is the startling scene of a Ukrainian ambush that killed at least 400 Russian soldiers: Blown up tanks, detritus of pontoon bridges, branches shorn off by explosions. Bodies of Russian soldiers, some half buried in the mud. By @AndrewKramerNYT nyti.ms/3Nx5fDu

“the Russian military believed that they had a chance to win a conflict with the West…because the West…the United States, would never sustain heavy casualties like the Russian Army can sustain, because, to the leadership, the cost of life is different.” newyorker.com/news/q-and-a/p…

Critics of new gun laws -- such as Gov. Abbott -- often bring up Chicago. Well, we fact checked that in 2017 --> Does a city with the ‘toughest gun laws’ end up with ‘worst gun violence’? washingtonpost.com/news/fact…

Fox reporting this after devoting hours and hours of coverage to suggesting armed officers at schools is the most logical solution to preventing these massacres.
NEW: Texas DPS tells me there was in fact a school police officer on campus at Robb Elementary who exchanged gunfire with the shooter and the officer was shot & injured. That is when the shooter ran inside the school, barricaded himself in a class, & began killing. @FoxNews

As many of us wrestle with our emotions today, something a source said just smacked me in the face: 3 mostly Mexican-American communities in West Texas -- El Paso, Odessa and now Uvalde -- have experienced mass shootings in the last 4 years. 2 of those shootings were at schools.
