I don't know how a person can watch this unravel in front of their eyes (and at that, behind a computer screen) and not cry. It is so very very sad, so very wrong ... the Western leaders/free world "leaders" have not "lead", they have procrastinated until Ukraine has been savaged (the extent of the barbarism not fully uncovered yet) ...and 'we' have ALL reached this point. There can be no going back, or forgiving Russia, it will be a war until either Russia defeats Ukraine, or Ukraine has victory, but Ukraine will not succeed on their own, which means, we are all entering further into WWWIII. I fear this is just the early stages of that particular Hell.
