US War Hawks Circle the Ukraine

Written by

Some throught from a Patriot, a Veteral of World War II and Remnant Columnist...

Regarding the present crisis in the Ukraine—in particular the Crimean Peninsula on the Black Sea—Rudyard Kipling gave us the famous poem, "The Ballad of East and West" (1889), which has some lasting relevance, concerning the historic Crimean War of the 1854-56, and in today's renewed crisis in Crimea.  Kipling wrote: "Oh, East is East and West is West, and never the twain shall meet" (which seems to debunk the modern idea of One-World "multi-culturalism" a.k.a., the new Tower of Babel?).

Likewise, concerning the historic and futile Battle of Balaclava, 1854, in the same Crimean War, Alfred Lord Tennyson gave us his famous poem, "The Charge of the Light Brigade"; and even though this battle was disastrous, His Lordship asks, "When can their glory fade?"  Though "war is Hell", it seems so attractive for manly glory—and now even for feminine glory, manly arts seeming far more glorious than birthing babies and baking cookies. No wonder birth-rates near zero, and "diverse" cultures are of the lowest common denominator, reducing nationhood to mere "homeland". Perhaps I have lived too long (93).  Or is "the program" covertly evolving to alien master-plans.

untitledLate last week the Dalai Lama flip flopped, I mean, evolved on the marriage question. During an interview with the semi-retired Larry King, the Tibetan Buddhist leader said, “If two people – a couple – really feel that way is more practical, more sort of satisfaction, both sides fully agree, then OK.”

The Dalai Lama qualified his remarks by stating Buddhists are not to engage in homosexual behavior, but “for a non-believer, that is up to them.”

“[T]here are different forms of sex – so long as it is safe, OK, and if they fully agree, OK.”

In other words: “who am I to judge?”
