Those who surrender freedom for security will not have, nor do they deserve, either one. Benjamin Franklin

Another good article about the western response to Ukraine,this one from Mish


"Steingart kicks off with "Every war is accompanied by a kind of mental mobilization: war fever. Even smart people are not immune to controlled bouts of this fever."

Steingart is precisely correct. The War in Vietnam, and the War in Iraq are cases in point. Both were based on lies, distortions, gross underplay of risks, and gross overplay of concerns.

Consider the ridiculous Vietnam "Domino Theory" and the trump-up of WOMD concern of Bush  when it turns out Hussein did not have any.

History Repeating?   "
