Flashback in the USSR

March 23, 2014 , , ,

How prescient was Sir Paul when he said of course it’s going to go well here when we talk about the Ukraine girls?  This song was sarcastic when it was written, and is more ironic now than ever.  We are back in a state very similar to the Cold War, and the joke is heavy.  Was there ever true communism??? I say no, just state capitalism, which is a sorry substitute.  Today we know that putting our heads down in the hall of the school will not protect us from a full blown nuke attack.  Do you see a good way to end the Russian stand-off, gentle readers?

What do you think?

I do find this particular conflict rather uncomfortable. And suprising. I thought the Ukraine was a stronger country

They thought so too, I guess….and there is the matter of giving up the nukes…

Cutting off the money supply will work. When some of Putin’s high flying friends find their fortunes have become hard to access and not worth as much, they will put pressure on him to back off.

Contrary to what some believe, we cannot afford to make silly threats of armed conflict. WWIII is all too real a possibility.

If I lived in Europe I would be very concerned at the moment..the G 7 is meeting…and back off from what?? He already went pretty far.
