I learned today that Ukraine agreed to get rid of their nukes

in exchange USA would defend them from any invading forces. I guess it happened some time in the 80s.

I am envisioning Iran saying "See, this is what happens."

By the way - for those of you who don't fully understand Daniel Ellsberg's Pentagon Papers, one of the key revelations was that US had a secret agreement with France that they would crush any rebellions in Vietnam. This agreement (which stretched over 3 presidencies) is what got us into the Vietnam war.

They don't teach you that in school.
