The leader of the country of Ukraine has recently asked the NATO for help in what they believe will be war with their Russian neighbor. The Russians have captured three navy vessels and their crews. The crew members were shown on television admitting they were at fault which is being seen as they were coerced to do. Ukraine was an area great suffering during WWII because Hitler wanted the oil fields that were located in that area. The German army fought some of the bloodiest battles of the war. The collapse of the Soviet Union gave some freedom for the peoples of this area. In 2014 Russia invaded and took control of the Crimea with very little reporting by the media.
It seems that once again in world events western governments are ignoring the aggression of the Soviets. NATO does not want to consider military action which it could not provide in any case. America seems to have been compromised in its election process by the contact of high administration officials with Russian operatives in the 2016 elections. America is still a young country when it comes to the world stage, and the Russians have centuries of history to perfect its image on that stage. That is something to remember in our dealings with Russia, and China both. Putin’s Barbarossa continues to move forward just as Hitler’s operation of the same name did over seventy years ago. This is not the time to have a blind eye to the reality of current world events. Enough said.
