It’s been another tough week. To get the self-promotion out of the way, I’ll be on NPR’s 1A at 11 a.m. today for the international news roundup to discuss Ukraine, Russia, and other developments in Asia and Latin America. The news out of Ukraine grows more heartbreaking. Civilians are suffering and dying. Russia is striking schools and hospitals. Based on Russia’s track record in Syria, those strikes are likely intentional and designed to terrorize and break the will of the Ukrainian resistance.
Do you think Putin is going to be moving straight on to Moldova? Do you think he’s going to take back the Baltic state’s right after he declares victory in Ukrainia? Then what about taking Poland? My gut says that’s exactly what he’s going to do. NATO strength is real in Germany, Turkey, Italy and everything east of that is a paper tiger.
