The Lesson of the Ukrainian/Russian War.

27 Sep

Stupidity at work

The reason why history is important is because without it leaders are doomed to fail and repeat all the mistakes of the past. The current war in the Ukraine with the Russian’s is the clearest example of that. In the past one-thousand years the Ukraine was always part of Poland or Russia other than a brief period during the Napoleonic wars. When the Soviet Union collapsed in 1991 the Ukraine gained its independence and in 1994 they agreed to give up all their nuclear weapons. President Bill Clinton convinced them that their Russian neighbor would never invade them. Being a neighbor of a friendly nuclear power would be their protection if needed. So they signed a treaty with the US and Russia and left themselves defenseless against a hostile nuclear power. The moral of the story of course is never give up your weapons if you value your freedom.
