I confess that my anger emerges when I read about the murder of thousands in Ukraine. I want the West to stand with Ukraine against the gangster Vladimir Putin. I want arms to be sent to Ukraine and confront the stooges of Vladimir who currently are killing the innocent in that nation. German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Hollande decided on a different approach. They have been negotiating with Vladimir Putin to achieve a cease fire in Ukraine. They signed such an agreement. It is NOT a solution. It will not punish those who initiated this conflict. It will NOT stop Putin from constantly causing havoc in the world. But, it does:
1. End the possibility of an armed conflict with Russia.
2. At least for the moment, ends death in Ukraine.
3. It will not please Senator John McCain and those Republicans who want to get some fighting going on.
4. It seeks to avoid the Iraq syndrome of sending in the troops.
So, the world is not perfect. In the meantime, do the best one can.
