As conflict in Ukraine rages on, China is trying to goad US into war with Russia.
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky begged Congress early Wednesday morning for a no-fly zone, appealing for greater action from the legislative body to authorize harsher sanctions and bolstered defenses of embattled Ukraine.
During the speech before congressional members, Zelensky invoked the Japanese bombing of Pearl Harbor that launched the US into World War II, as well as the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, which ignited a war in the Middle East. Zelensky even invoked the words of civil rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
The joint session of Congress stood and cheered as House Speaker Nancy Pelosi congratulated Zelensky for demonstrating "courageous leadership" during Russia's military aggression. Zelensky urged President Joe Biden to not just be the commander-in-chief of the United States, but also "to be the leader of the world".
