  1. Want to stay informed. As a veteran I served in Europe prior to walls falling down. We don’t need another war!!

  2. I worry about Europe served their as a veteran in NATO before the walls fell.

  3. I have no trust of Putin. He would be in Ukraine now if it were not for NATO,

  4. Am I the only one who sees Putin running the old nazi revachist playbook here? First he destroys a fledgling democratic system from the inside, and turns it into a police state. He challenges the west by seizing former USSR territory in the Crimea (Rhienland) and right now is pressuring a neighbor, the Ukraine (Czhechoslovkia) with military and political force to cede them more land (sudetenland). Now he’s rattling sabers to show his willingness to fight. This won’t end well until the west stands up to him.

  5. Putin is all about restoring the soviet empire. I’m sorry to say, no one is Europe or America really has stomach to stop him, and are too busy with their own problems to care. They want to spend money on bread not weapons. But Russia is in slow motion collapse as well so interesting to see what happens.
