Ten years later, it still makes me laugh.
Moon Taxi’s official video for the song Mission, released in 2021.
The war continues, the need for assistance remains.
Hot Tuna with guest Paul Kantner perform Have You Seen The Stars Tonight. This song is from the original Paul Kantner/Grace Slick/Jefferson Starship album Blows Against The Empire, which was the first rock album ever nominated for the Hugo Award. This was always my personal favorite song from the album, finding this live performance made my day.
The latest Ramstein meeting was both encouraging and disappointing. Encouraging news came in the form of commitments to improve Ukraine’s air defense capabilities including accelerated training in the use of the systems being provided. Disappointing news came in the form of less than hoped for promises of heavy armored vehicles, especially modern main battle tanks (we’re all staring at you, Germany).
Ukraine is fully expected to face a new major offensive from Putin’s armies of war criminals. Ukraine’s outnumbered armed forces are preparing to face this offensive as well as working to mount their own offensive and they need all the modern armor they can muster.
Here is a recent video report proving some perspective:
Let’s start with this recent report:
Russia’s actions in the war they started with Ukraine have no limits. There is no line they won’t cross, there is no action too appalling, no atrocity off-limits. This isn’t state-sponsored terrorism, this is state perpetrated terrorism. There is no attempt at a fig leaf of plausible deniability. The fact is that Russian propagandists openly acknowledge the terrorism and call for more, including wiping France, The U.K., and Germany off the map with nuclear weapons.
NATO and many other countries are providing aid to Ukraine, and the more the better. However, at some point NATO needs to draw a line re Moscow’s attempt at slow-motion genocide in Ukraine. Russian success in Ukraine will only lead to further adventures in the rest of the former Soviet states. This needs to be stopped sooner rather than later.
