28. How many other "separatists" might feel the same way after the shoot-down.

 

The Ukrainian government might be wise to put out feelers with promises of western-style treatment for those separatist fighters who are ready to put down arms.

On another note, Barbara Starr just reported on CNN that Russian troops have moved close to the border again. Two Ukrainian military planes were shot down today and there is some question as to whether one of the planes was shot down by a missile fired from the Russian side of the border.

The last thing that I wish the US to do is get into a land battle with Russia in Ukraine, but Putin is simply behaving in an unacceptable manner. He has taken by force land on the other side of a border that his country agreed to respect by international agreement. This type of behavior in the past often has led to some very unpleasant circumstances of which we and the Europeans are well aware.

Ukraine, Syria, Israel/Palestine, Iraq, Libya, the North and South China Seas. I feel like I'm living in some sort of Tom Clancy "Sum of All Fears" novel that has no nice, neat end. President Obama seems to have come into office with the domestic policy goals of fixing the economy and proving health care for many who did not have it, and he's at least made good starts in both areas. But the rest of the world just seems to be spinning out of control, and I'm not sure that the administration, save for Sec. Kerry, is really prepared for this.
