If there is any lesson we can derive from the 20th century, it is that nothing but evil and mischief comes out of war between Europeans. It is probably the worst thing that can happen for a variety of reasons. This insight has always been the bedrock of my views on foreign policy.
I’m not cheering on the Russian invasion. I’m not cheering against the Ukrainians who are defending their homes. It is a tragic situation and we should be asking ourselves how it could have been avoided.
Note: It is not surprising given the crowd who controls of our foreign policy and who would love to see Ukraine become another Syria, Iraq, Libya or Afghanistan with millions dead and the country in rubble.
