So, What Is New In Ukraine?

A British investigating group has just released its study of the massive artillery attack that hit Ukrainian forces last summer. According to the Bellingrat investigation, it is certain, without a doubt, that most of the artillery shells came from INSIDE RUSSIA and were fired by RUSSIAN TROOPS. So, is this really new news? The investigation was based upon satellite imagery, the contours of shell contours and other methods of ascertaining who shot what. We can expect the following within the hour:

1. Vladimir Putin will inform the Russian people this is simply another Western attack upon Mother Russia.

2. Vladimir Putin will inform the Russian people that he will do anything to defend the Motherland from hostile forces.

3. Vladimir Purin will remind Russian people that during World War II, thousands of Ukrainians served with the German invaders.

4. Vladimir Putin will deny that Russia has any artillery forces.

In the end Ukrainians will die. But, Putin will live on as the greater savior of Russia.

Italian Army Into Battle?

Each day it becomes increasingly clear that Libya is becoming a center of chaos and destruction. Frankly, I doubt if there is a single political scientist who could even name the various groups now fighting for power, let alone being able to inform the world as to their goals for the land. Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi is proposing to send Italian troops to this land which lies as close to Italy as Cuba does to the United States of America. The dispatch of Italian troops to North Africa would be an interesting proposal. The last time Italian soldiers fought in northern Africa the results were not to the best. For example, when the Italian army invaded Egypt in 1941 it had 250,000 men who were opposed by about 50,000 British soldiers. For some reason, the British surrounded this invasion force and destroyed most of it.

I am not claiming the modern Italian army could not hold its own against Muslim terrorists. The initial problem is sorting out which Muslim terrorist is better of worse than the other Muslim terrorists. This is among the modern mysteries of life. Good Luck.

Cold Place For Hot Air

I do devote extensive time to the issue of how I can assist members of the Republican party to succeed in life. After all, if we continue allowing Republicans to devote their energies for the betterment of the United States–at least the Republican version of that goal– what lies ahead for poor Americans. Anyway, the United Kingdom has announced there are jobs available in Antarctic in the post office.

1. This would be perfect for Ted Cruz, he could speak every day without being interrupted. No one would halt his goals by voting against him. I assume Penguins are not Muslim terrorists.

2. Marco Rubio could finally be able to support the arrival of immigrant Penguins without losing votes.

3. Rudy Giuliani would become a one man hot air source that would finally melt the ice.

4. John Boehner would stand up against any coalition of Penguin Democrats.

5. Anyway, Jeb Bush could become the third Bush president.

Jews – Come Home To Israel!

The people of Denmark live in the hearts and souls of those who are Jewish. Denmark was the country that made certain every Jew was able to escape from the horror of Nazism. From the King of Denmark down to the ordinary Dane there was a plan to smuggle Jews out of the country to the safety of Sweden. A few days ago A Jew was murdered by an Islamist terrorist. So, what is the response to this tragedy by Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu-“we say to the Jews, to our brothers and sisters, Israel is your home.” He wants Danish Jews to leave Denmark and come to a land in which violence against Muslims and Jews is the norm. These comments by Netanyahu are insulting to the people of Denmark who risked their lives to save Jews!

Danish Ambassador to Israel, Jesper Vahr spoke the truth: “Our prime minister said an attack on the Jewish community is an attack on all Danish citizens.” As a Jew, I am shocked that Bibi Netanyahu would insult people who SAVED JEWS when no one else would!!

Another Death In Iraq

The war in Iraq continues and people are dying. NO, there is not another beheading by ISIS, no, terrorists are not killing the innocent. No, American planes are not bombing terrorists. It is simply a continuation of a war that has gone on for over a decade. A Sunni elder, Sheikh Qasim al Janabi was driving in a convoy with members of his tribe when they were halted at a checkpoint in Baghdad. One would assume that being halted within the city limits of the capital of this fair land would not pose a danger to life or limb. This sheik was an important leader of Sunnis and has been working to reduce tensions and gather support of the war against ISIS. So, what led to his death and those of members of his family?

His convoy was halted by members of Shiite militia whose concept of fighting ISIS is to murder Sunnis who seek to murder members of ISIS. A voice of moderation is dead. We can expect some form of retaliation for these murders. Prime Minister Haider al Abadi IS trying to end the madness of killing and killing of Sunnis by Shiites. NO, Iraq does not need more American planes. But, it does need common sense and respect for one another if the fight against ISIS is to become a victory.

Another Day, Another Shooting By Cops

It was just another day in an area in Pasco, Washington and people were going about their lives of walking down the street of chatting with one another before the building in which they live. In the United States of America it is one thing for a well dressed man to walk into an office building on his way to make a few million dollars and another thing when someone who is of Mexican heritage just wants to enjoy the fresh air. By definition, he is “suspicious.” Why is he suspicious? He is of Mexican heritage and may be one of those Muslim “terrorists.” Wait a second, those of Mexican heritage are Christian, but then again, not the right kind of Christian. Anyway, Antonio Zambrano is dead. He was shot by the police of that town.

At this moment, people in Pasco, Washington are marching with signs. “El pueblo unido mamas sera vencido.” It simply means the people united will never be defeated. Oh, Mr. Zambrano did have his hands held up in the air. Naturally, that behavior constitutes a threat to the lives of members of the police force. He is dead. Period.

New Style Taliban

It is a common event in human history for violent groups to evolve from their terrorist backgrounds into a more moderate status. In Bakakhshan province in Afghanistan a new style Taliban has become to emerge that is fundamentally different from Taliban groups elsewhere in the country. Many of these Taliban men have now accepted some of the pleasures of modern life. They allow young girls to go to school. They enjoy watching television and dancing to music. They regard beheading enemies to be a violation of the Koran and the meaning of the Muslim religion. Just imagine, members of Taliban dancing and singing. What next, to sing and dance with WOMEN!

This group of Taliban warriors seek to create a viable economy and establish some form of modern government that is not corrupt. Perhaps, these are Taliban who deserve some contact by the Afghan government which might agree to work with them. Perhaps, it is time to establish modern Taliban groups that want to end war and work for peace at the local level. A heck of a lot better than sending in the drones of destruction.

Fruits Of War Linger On In Minds Of Veterans

I, along with millions can not forget what happened to millions of young Americans who were sent off to war by the dynamic trio of Bush/Cheney/Rumsfeld. They were asked to fight, get wounded or die in a war that had no plan, no purpose, and no conclusion. Yes, “American Sniper” is making millions pretending the war was a glorious moment for at least some people. But, the millions of veterans will not cash in on a Hollywood moment, they must spend their days and nights reflecting on the horror of combat and loss of their friends. Why them and not me is THE question in so many minds? A new bill has finally been passed in Congress called the Clay Hunt Suicide prevention act. Its focus is upon dealing with Post Traumatic Disorder.

1. It creates new peer support systems for those in psychological need.

2. It establishes a comprehensive VA suicide prevention program.

3. It provides for hiring additional mental health specialists.

4. It even provides student loan assistance to psychologists who will work with these veterans.

Of course, nothing can wipe from minds what happened. Then again, nothing has been done to punish those responsible for what did HAPPEN!

Is Silence Always Wrong?

President Recep Erdogan was on a trip to Mexico when he decided to provide America with an opportunity to receive his words of wisdom. Actually, he did make a good point by noting the silence of President Obama, Joe Biden and Secretary of State John Kerry over the murder of three Muslims on the University of North Carolina campus. He described the silence as “telling.” Erdogan went on to blast American leaders. “If you stay silent when faced with an incident like this, and don’t make a statement, the world will stay silent towards you.” His point is well taken although I don’t think that foreign ministers in countries issue statements about murders in their nation. The President definitely should have said something, after all, he made several comments about the murder of black men.

However, when President Erdogan pontificates about silence concerning murder of the innocent, he opens up comments about his own silences.

1. He has been very silent about confronting ISIS. He refused to aid Kurd soldiers fighting them.

2. He has been very silent concerning prejudice against Kurds in his nation.

3. He is the chief of silence when it comes to the topic of genocide against Armenians during World War I.

For each statement Obama makes about human rights how about one from Erdogan

Bibi, The Great Leader

I understand that many Americans and Israelis actually believe that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is some sort of great leader. When he assumed power in Israel, the following was present:

1. Turkey was a close ally of Israel and their troops were engaged in joint military exercises.

2. Egypt and Israel had close relations.

3. Jordan and Israel had good relations.

4. Israel still enjoyed the respect of most European nations.

5. American diplomats worked with Israel in hope of securing peace in the Middle East.

After several years of Bibi in charge of Israel this is the reality:

1. Turkey has become an enemy of Israel and has yet to get over the murder of Turkish citizens who were bringing humanitarian aid to Gaza. I will not get into the humiliation of Turkish diplomats by Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman.

2. Relations with Egypt are formal, not close.

3. Jordanians do not seek close relations with Israel.

4. It is impossible to name a single European nation that supports the foreign policy of Israel.

5. There are NO meaningful relations with the United States of America.

Oh, Israel has good relations with the Republican party of America.
