Lessons of History…….Me No Wanna Learn!

My first 8 years of life – 6 were spent in a war – the last 4 - I remember well. I don’t recommend it! As my parents told me afterward, most folks NEVER SAW it coming……….why? NEVER LOOKED - Signs were everywhere!

After all, wars are for other people……until they are for US!

America At War-Provoking The Consequences - Author: Christopher Black

The American people have not directly experienced war in their own territory for a long time. They have no idea what it is. They have no idea of the danger they are in so long as their government continues its aggressive policies, not only against Russia, but China as well.  The American people, misled and misinformed, have no conception of the dangers of this war anymore than the British people and the peoples of the other NATO countries do. The American people must be warned. The United States of America is at war, and no amount of bluffing and lying can protect them from the consequences their government is provoking. To repeat what I said in my warning to the people of Britain, the consequences are predictable and they will be catastrophic.

Do Not Underestimate Russia’s Resolve - By James Soriano

In the time since the United States was founded in the 18th century, Russia has been invaded by Europeans six times.

The Russian people get this.  They sense that the battle in Ukraine is not just about Ukraine.  It in an existential fight, a struggle of life or death, between them and the West.

In recent days, groups of armed insurgents have infiltrated onto Russian territory, and districts along the border with Ukraine have come under shell fire.  These events have more the character of terrorism than of a conventional military operation, but they nonetheless raise the possibility that the war could spin out of control.  If it does, then it could become the seventh episode in the past two centuries in which the Russian people have had to fend off Western intruders.  It would be wrong to misjudge their will to resist.
