    I didn’t know Janet Reno was Ukrainian.

    There is a move in Russia to prosecute Mr. Gorbachav for his treasonous actions in the fall of the USSR. If it can be ‘proven’ that the USSR was betrayed, it will go far in justifying Mr. Putin’s actions in restoring the cold war boundaries with the Russian people.
    Scary stuff neighbors.

    and with the USA suffering under an elected anti-American president, working day by day to “change” our system, Putin knows he will get away with land-grabs to “restore the Empire”…..because our Isolationist president also has changed our foreign policy to aid for enemies and opposition to friends and NO leadership to act to solve international problems.

    Always good to hear from you, Michael.
    As you stated parenthetically, Gorbachev is being blamed for the downfall of the USSR. One wonders how far Mr. Putin is willing to go to restore the USSR to his vision of its one time greatness.The situation is not helped by the fact that, like in the USA, there are very large divides between the two sides in the Ukraine and one side is more willing to take the nation down if they get what they want, that is to say, to be unified with Russia.
    When people are poor, ignorant, and desperate, they will often make decisions that they later learn were not in their best interests.
    Thank you for your many well stated comments, especially the ones where your subtlety is in the forefront.

    One wonders if those in Ukraine favoring union with Russia have spoken with the Georgians, particularly those in the regions annexed by Russia in 2008. From what I read, that has been a disappointment of major proportions and an economic disaster for those people.

    Interesting to see Obama talking a lot about additional sanctions when virtually no original sanctions have been imposed. Watch as WW 3 begins because liberal America does nothing.

    WWI did not begin because the various nations of the world did nothing but because they acted for no good reason. Think about it if you can, do some reading if you have the time. You might start with “The Guns of August” by Tuchmann, but there are many more good additional sources. Then ask yourself if WWII would have occurred if the allies of WWI had conducted the post-war situation in a more coherent and less vindictive, nationalistic manner.
