I have some questions for all of you arm-chair chickenhawks; are you willing to risk yours or your family’s lives over the Ukraine? I see WW1 starting over again, a single assassination that spun out of control into a war that cost millions of lives. Sooner or later someone on either side will do something really stupid which would quickly… Read more »
