They Say - 2

It's always nice to know there are thinking people around. Here is a good piece of Patrick J. Buchanan titled "A Foreign Policy of Russophobia", recently published in The American Conservative.

Tha article is not that large, it won't take you more than two or three minutes to read it through (though it can take considerably more time to think it over), so I am not going to copy 'n paste it here. Just some points:
H.R. 758 condemns the presence of Russian troops in Abkhazia, which also broke from Georgia in the early 1990s, and in Transnistria, which broke from Moldova. But where is the evidence that the peoples of Transnistria, Abkhazia, or South Ossetia want to return to Moldova or Georgia?
We seem to support every ethnic group that secedes from Russia, but no ethnic group that secedes from a successor state. This is rank Russophobia masquerading as democratic principle.
Why would a moral nation arm Ukraine to fight a longer and larger war with Russia that Kiev could not win, but that could end up costing the lives of ten of thousands more Ukrainians?
I hope you read the full text. I do hope you will think it over. Just think and try to answer the questions Buchanan asks, using a logical approach; it helps always.

Just one thing to remember: when the House of Representatives (or any other authority, or mass media) calls something evil or black, it's possibly, but not necessarily so.
