Dear friends

I am traveling with my wife for a couple of days.  I am also celebrating my birthday, so between the travels and my desire to disconnect for 48 hours, I leave you with an open thread asking you to please stick to the topic of the NATO war against Russia.  To launch the conversation, I would offer these two headlines:

First, just as I thought I said all that I could say about Poland, this happened:

Russian OSCE delegation denied visas by Poland

Then they are going to wonder why nobody respects them.

Next, another good one:

Finland To Erect Costly High-Security Fence Along Russian Border

That has got to be one of the dumbest political decision in decades… … especially since the Ukies and the Poles already tried that :-)

Building walls as a highest expression of one’s ideology.

All I can do is repeat the words of Roger Waters I quoted in my previous post and ask: “did they expect us to treat them with any respect?!”

What do you think?

Hugs and cheers,


PS: FYI – I expect to be back at the keyboard by Tuesday.
