World War Three

Putin's just started World War Three though if anyone had thought to ask me You could see it coming back in 2008 when he rolled over Georgia, then sat back to wait And the world stamped and shouted before leaving the poor Georgians to fate When Putin's little green men invaded Crimea six years later, you got the idea Now part of Russia, Crimeans are glad to travel freely to Moscow and Petrograd * As for Ukraine, Putin's stepped up his game invaded with tanks and missiles, fire and flame What's next are the Baltics and probably Poland That's when World War Three will really get rollin' Meanwhile, China's got Taiwan in her sights She's stripped citizens there of all civil rights To halt the war, what will Biden and Harris do Will sanctions save even one life ~ let alone two? _____________________________________________ *Petrograd is the former name of what is now the city of Stalingrad... Crimeans no longer have to bribe Russian sentries at border crossings just to enter the country.

Sad but so true Gershon. The US sanctions are too weak. We need to cut off our supply of Russian oil regardless of how it may cause some financial distress at home. Most of the super rich Russians have probably diverted their monies else where already. Regardless of their Nato status, we need to stop this Russian genocide. Our involvement as a democracy is morally justified.

You chose the words right out of my mouth, and a huge pond separates us, just a small example of how the whole world feels. Well penned my friend, i hope we are both wrong, perhaps i'll give my version yet. Hugs and blessings, Jennifer.

World War 3 is a scary prospect. I know God intervened in WW2.

I don't know about Divine Interventions. I know only that He hears sincere prayers from the Heart. As for his Master Plan, it's way, way beyond me. :) gw

Count your blessings that Putin does not have our current President's support! I thought Putin was trying to force NATO to accept the Ukraine, so Putin would have "moles" to leak NATO strategy, but Putin wants more than that! Aloha!

Nobody emboldened Putin and Jinping more than Obama and Biden. The two weakest foreign policy Presidents in living memory.

So much for NATO. I know Ukraine is not a member but the west just looks weak. Pathetic response!

Couldn't agree more, Craig. Sanctions won't stop the flow of champagne and caviar to the Kremlin, although it will stop the flow of gas and oil worldwide, and help further empty the shelves in the stores. Have you read the latest best-seller? -- "How not to stop a Bully," by Obama, Trump and Biden. (Mr. Feckless, Mr. Clueless, and Mr. Feeble, respectively).

Hoping until today that this isn't going to go forward!! But with the series of incidents that began to happen, it sends pain and fear of what's next! :-(

Well, the war IS going forward unfortunately. The Pain and Fear is palpable.

Sanctions are a joke, someone needs to give that bully a bloody nose. They're not going to let Russia host some big football game, is that the best the west can do Tom

An honest and confounding question that doesn't seem to have an answer at the moment. Hope something comes through that will stop the possibility of this war becoming real bloody!...ab

Well, in the two days since you typed your comments, nothing 'came through,' and the conflict is already bloody bloody, as a British bloke might say! ~ Charge!
