Russia`s Actions In Ukraine Threaten Dangerous Instability And Indicate U.S. Retreating from its Leadership Role

Often, we learn the wrong lessons from history

(WASHINGTON DC) - Ukraine war Russian President Vladimir Putin is seriously challenging the post-Cold War international order. Will one nation be permitted to use force to annex the territory of another country---or will it be prevented from doing so?

Thus far, the world's response----and that of our own country, the self-proclaimed leader of the free world----is ambiguous. At this point, aggression appears to have succeeded, with no response other than a rhetorical one.

PRESS TV: Ukrainian Anti-Semitism Revealed

According to reports, a mysterious group in the Ukraine is telling Jews they have to register with the government, disclose their property and vehicles, and pay a $50 fine for processing.

(MEDIA, PA) - Veterans Our legislators in Washington must stop playing politics with our veterans, this is especially true of Vietnam war veterans. Will the game playing carry over to our veterans of present day wars?
