There is talk among those in the know that just maybe the Russian troop buildup near the eastern Ukraine border are just regular military training exercises being used as a smoke screen for possible invasion of their neighbor. Hitler annexed part of Czechoslovakia using the
excuse that Germanic people living there were being mistreated. Mr. Putin is using Hitler’s game book for domination of weaker countries. The new iron curtain is a possibility for all who are on the wrong side of a border. The world war 2 history of the struggle between the German, and Russian armies for control of this area cannot be overlooked.
The borders of Europe have changed many times over the centuries, and will continue to do so in the future. Obama is in consultation with the pope in Rome. The Russians have all the aces in this game. The west will fold, or will it?
