Meh. The times, they keep getting more "interesting."


 Now that Putin has the Sudetenland, he's aiming for the rest of Czechoslovakia, from his speech to the Duma: "We're one nation. Kiev is the mother of all Russian cities."

I suspect this isn't over, and blood will be shed.

While I suspect that's not the case for my gaggle of interested persons, if you are confused by the post, you need to catch up on modern European history that you slept through in HS and/or college.

Assuming they took modern European History at all. I had to study it on my own. The places I went didn't have it at all in one case, and always had a conflict at the other. Putin is essentially a Tsarist and is working to recreate the Russian Empire. Kiev is the mother of all Russian cities, and I think he will try to take it. The Ukrainian Army had better start training hard.
 
 This is, most definitely, not over. Our present "strategy" *sucks*! I don't think any of the choices will the American Citizenry like. No, the military will not like them either. Draft? We may just need to revisit the question. No, I don't like it, but that is where we are headed. Those who do not learn from history are condemned to repeat it. Those who are fascinated with the Cold War, just wait. your turn is coming with Cold War Vs 2.0. By the way, stand up, bend over and wait. Now, you understand why the Auld Veterans sit just a little bit funny. One of the benefits that they never tell you what about is this, you never need to worry about hemorrhoids again. You will be in the Government Hemorrhoid Prevention Program for Life.
