THE UNREPORTED WAR
America is focused on war in the Middle East; we are obsessed with Isis, mainly because of their media exploitation of the beheading of Westerners. - and our government's obsession with oil.
However, all this time there has been a European leaning country under attack by Russia - a country truly fighting to keep its independents; and we in America are ignoring their struggle.
You will not find reporting of the Ukrainian struggle on the news; but you can get a firsthand view, and understanding of the root of the conflict by accessing the Blog Fodder blog posted by a Canadian living in Ukraine
It really is worth following.
America is involved, and has been for over a decade, in a Middle Eastern religious conflict that has no resolution. It is quite possible we created the conflict by removing Saddam from Iraq. Colin Powell warned the Bush administrator that if you break it you own it... well we have tried to own it every since.
The bottom line is that we should be supporting the Ukrainian people desperately fighting to keep their independence from Russia and not spending the lives and resources in the Middle Eastern black hole of religious extremism.
