Being an educator I have always said that if you want to know what goes on in schools ask a teacher.   In the same light if you want to know what is going on in Russia and the pressing dangers in that part of the world you should hear from someone who lives there and views the situation first hand.

The BLOG FODDER is a Canadian married to a Ukrainian and living in the Ukraine.  He views the situation there from first hand experience, but with a separation that allows a unique perspective.

His recent post should be a must read.   While we here in the U.S. are focused with tunnel vision on the Middle East, Russia is reverting to its old Communist roots.  As a reminder, we should remember that Russia is still in possession of the second largest nuclear stockpile of weapons in the world. 

And while we celebrate our holidays with flags and barbecues and floats of Minions and Spiderman, Russia is parading tanks, missile launchers, armored vehicles and military troop formations. 

Perhaps our focus is in the wrong part of the world.

  1. I've been reading news everyday after seeing what Russia has been up to after seeing a show called vice on HBO. Thanks for the update. It's scary that we are not being made aware by any media on cable tv

  2. Thanks, Ol' Buzzard. I wish I was even half as smart as folks think I am and half as nice as my dog thinks I am.
