V.Putin has unleased the possibility of degrading life on earth as we know it. Once again history is repeating itself because there is no mortal being coming forward to save humanity from itself. The situation in Ukraine is dire, to say the least, the videos of citizens of that country running away from their homes to save the lives of themselves and most importantly lives of their children.
In the past, I have watched videos from WW2 which showed the misery that the world had to endure because of man’s inhumanity to man. Most of those movies were in black and white which made it easier to watch. Now we have high definition color video of the carnage which is raging in that part of the world, and the United States is not fulfilling its role as a world leader. Innocent people are suffering as we hesitate to do the right thing.
When we had lend-lease during the second world war we provided equipment to the Russians and the British in the hope that our troops would not have to fight the Germans. How did that policy turn out? We as a nation will at some point in time deal with Russia on a one-to-one basis. That is our ultimate destiny whether we want to believe it or not.
