What's happening in Ukraine matters

(Continued)

4. The Cold War with Russia originated from Russia’s post-WWII domination of Eastern Europe. It shaped our geopolitical landscape for a generation, and was the driving force behind the nuclear arms race, McCarthyism and our engagement in the Korean and Vietnam wars. Will we be traveling down that road again, and if so, at what human and financial cost?

It is not my nature or intention to be an alarmist. However, it behooves all of us to pay close attention to what is happening in Ukraine.
