Babylon Burning. An appropriate song for Ukraine and world today


Are we really going to have a Ukraine war no one wants? Russian forces already are in de facto control in parts of Ukraine. What could US gain by getting involved? There are no neighboring areas the US or UK could stage forces except for Poland and Romania, and that’s not going to happen. Plus, the US needs Russia on Syria and to get troops out of landlocked Afghanistan. All of this probably won’t stop the Ukraine situation from getting dangerously loony. All this is made worse by Putin consistently out-maneuvering Obama.

“Babylon burning. And they got no water. Fire, fire. And they got no water.”
