A sore GOOD MORNING!!! to you all! Yup…sore. Muscles hurt from taking 5 days off the mat even if I did get some throw time down in So. Cal. Different muscles at play but the endorphins are all good!
Free For All Friday Ed-vise today. Cause it’s FRIDAY! PIZZA NIGHT AND OPEN MAT BABY!!!
I been following this Ukraine thing. In addition I have been mulling over the misjudgment I made about Russia invading. That kind of bugs me.
First, Ukraine has learned the super hard way that Good Ol’ Murica…well…we are not much for keeping our word. See, back in 1994 there was a thing called the Budapest Memorandum. That little note was an agreement where Britain, Ireland (of all places), ‘Murica, and Russia all agreed to be nice to Ukraine. In return, Ukraine would destroy it’s nuclear stockpiles.
2014 comes around and Russia violates it…of course, by invading and annexing Crimea. A part of Ukraine. One member of the Ukraine parliament said that Ukraine may need to rebuild it’s nuke program, pointing out that countries with nukes DON’T GET INVADED! And BOY was he right!
But, despite NOBODY else holding up their end of the bargain…Ukraine did and stayed non-nuclear.
Sure, we did give Ukraine some military hardware. Some good stuff too. We didn’t give them the REALLY good stuff because we did not believe the Ukraine military “smart enough” to handle it. Hmmm. Interesting little insult. We believed the Afghan army could! But not the Ukraine people…who used to have a nuclear arsenal!
I suppose that mental assessment on our part is correct. I mean, afterall, we did sucker them into a stupid memorandum that guaranteed the west would do NOTHING of substance to stop Russia from invading…AND we proved it in 2014. So, I guess in that sense you would be correct.
Let’s at least put our allies on alert to revisit ANY agreement we have made with them to make sure, 100% sure, that Good Ol’ ‘Murica, will do what we said we will do! ESPECIALLY NATO!
I’m just saying
That’s it for today. Take care of yourselves. Check in on each other and remember when a rainbow is convicted of a crime it goes to…PRISM! BWAHAHAHAHHAHA…I see the light!
