Let’s get informed not inflamed on Russia invading Crimea which is currently part of Ukraine.

The best analysis, so far, comes from Fareed Zakariah’s GPS on CNN.  One of his guests is Steven Cohen, a Russian expert from Princeton.  He offers perspective from the thinking of Russians and especially Putin.

It’s interesting and scary.  Cohen says we are not far away from another Cuban Missile Crisis or even war with Russian in eastern Europe.  After all, U-S fighter jets have moved to Poland – a NATO ally.  Russia can bring more troops into Ukraine.  Earlier this week I tweeted: this is eerily looking like 1914 again.  If you get a chance, Read Barbara Tuchman’s great history on the start of World War I, called The Guns of August.  It might scare you with the similarities to today.
