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.
Let’s discuss the Bowe Bergdahl story. He is the young soldier released by the Taliban in exchange for 5 prisoners at Gitmo.
There is some evidence that Bergdahl deserted after being upset with US military operations. That has led to a lot of controversy. And it has split the country.
Here’s my take.
First, read two good articles. The first is a New York Times piece out today examining if Bergdahl’s walking away or his abduction led to the 6 deaths of fellow soldiers. In short, the Times says as in war details are murky. So blaming Bergdahl for those deaths is a bit of stretch.
The second piece was written in May of 2012 by Michael Hastings in Rolling Stone. Hastings is the journalist who died in a car crash last year after his expose in Rolling Stone brought down General Stanley McCrystal. Hastings profile of Bergdahl is very revealing. It is worth the read to understand the psyche of this 20-something we sent off to the horrors of war.
The other half of us don’t want those years of fighting terrorists over there to go to waste. There is still the fear of the Taliban controlling Afghanistan again and maybe the nuclear weapons of Pakistan.
And again, I am siding with the President here. We need to keep some troops and advisers in that region – just for that reason. Granted, Obama may be playing both sides here – getting us out of combat but keeping our presence there.
The Bergdahl story is going to get bigger. It is also going to cause a lot of anger and emotion. Work to defuse that while understanding the feelings on both sides. However, let’s all wait for the facts.
Let's go into an Informed Not Inflamed discussion on the victory of Dave Brat in the Republican Primary of the 7th District of Virginia.
By the way, it just came across that Eric Cantor will step down as House Majority Leader, as well, while he serves out his current term to the end of the year. So, politically this is huge.
When it crossed my breaking news alert on my iphone last night -- my wife Teri was worried because of the bizarre look on my face. I thought it was an Onion headline. But it wasn’t. How big is it? It’s the first time since the 1880s that a sitting House Majority Leader lost in a primary.
However, let’s look at this primary without the knee-jerk hype of the media and the political partisans.
So let’s go beyond the headlines and the hype on the Brat victory over Cantor. After all, media and political pundits got this wrong.
First, we don’t know if this is strictly a tea party win. It could be more of an anti-establishment victory. The things that upset the tea party about Cantor were also the same things that people in the middle and on the left are angry about. Primarily, the Washington establishment is owned by special interest. You know who is really upset today about Eric Cantor’s defeat? Wall Street. He was a big advocate for them and a recipient of lots of money to protect Wall Street on regulatory matters. The tea party does not own that anti-establishment issue. Granted, the tea party is a big part of this “throw out the bumms movement”.
But we also don’t know if Democrats or independents, trying to hurt the GOP, voted for Brat, just to get Cantor out.

Gratitude Night !! On this Thanksgiving evening, we'll pause to give expressions of our gratitude for our recovery from child abuse and trauma, and express our desire that we can be effective in our mission .. (1) to educate the public to stop the silence and (2) to offer hope and help to the still suffering adult survivor of child abuse. Wearing a Blue Ribbon is the symbol of Child Abuse Awareness! Millions of abuse victims (men and women) hide the story of their experience well into adulthood. A huge number continue to suffer from pain, anger, fear, shame and embarrassment for decades. Most will agree their traumas have resulted in an inability to trust, make good decisions and have healthy relationships. But giving up the secret is often how recovery begins, one survivor talking to another. Join Bill Murray and his co-hosts, panelists and guests, many of them abuse survivors, others supporters and friends, for an informed discussion of the many important issues that surround child abuse. Anonymous calls and chat room participation are encouraged. ~~ Please see our web site at: www.NAASCA.org
