November 1917 Bolshevik forces backed by Soviets (Russians) invaded Ukraine. This was the beginning of Vladimir Lenin’s plan to take over the World. Most of Europe was involved with fighting World War One. After the end of The War to End All Wars was finished, the next takeover of Europe was started.
The League of Nations was started in the hopes of stopping the next war, and failed. Soviet Troops slowly advanced west. Germany and the Soviet Union had a nonaggression treaty, which was on paper only. Neither Hitler nor Stalin trusted each other. After World War Two the Soviet Union invaded its neighbors and spread it influence around the World. A lot of words and little action by the United States did not deter the spread of Communism.
Our Military fought in Korea and in Vietnam and defeated Chinese and Soviet backed forces. Our Politicians squandered those victories. By the summer of 1989 the Soviet Union was having economic difficulties and the Soviet Union dissolved physically. In the minds of some, Communism still lived. Russia kept its interest in the Middle East supplying weapons used against Israel. During the First Gulf War our Military fought against Iraqi Troops armed with Russian weapons.
In the halls of the United Nations, Russia opposed us on every issue. Russia has armed and trained our current enemy the Islamist Terrorists. Russia is back in Ukraine backing antigovernment forces, supplying training, weapons and troops. Vladimir Putin denies any roll in shooting down aircraft, including a passenger plane.
Barack Obama, just like Woodrow Wilson, Warren Harding, Calvin Coolidge, Herbert Hoover, Franklin Roosevelt, Harry Truman, Dwight Eisenhower, Lyndon Johnson, and Jimmy Carter, Russian aggression is ignored. Joseph Stalin is number two on the list of killing the most people. Mao Zedong is number one, Adolf Hitler is number three. Stalin killed over 7 million Ukrainians. Will Putin do the same? Look at the fallout from the MH17 plane downing as described on Wounded American Warrior
Just like 1917 we are tired of war. We have a President who likes to talk, but not use actions to stop a problem. The United Nations like the League of Nations is not doing anything to stop Russia. Is history going to repeat itself and will 7 million more Ukrainians die? Do we send Troops to Ukraine? Do we sell arms to Ukraine? Is this the start of a second war?
