..."The Battle for Ukraine," and I am very confused. I'm an American, and I want to love my country. I'm supposed to love my country. I want to love all of humanity. But this terrible thing happening in Ukraine is just, I'm sorry, but all I can say is that it is just tearing me apart.
This Frontline program was wonderfully put together, cinematographically well done, but there was something very, very wrong. It appeared that there were giant holes, enormous pieces of information simply left out. What was, according to my sources, a Right Sector attack on Odessa, for example, with some 40 persons burned alive in the labor building (just one piece of the action), was completely omitted from the coverage. And this was not all; a great deal more was omitted.
I will admit that my ability to follow all the happenings has been quite restricted of late. My TV gave out a month ago, so I have been forced to get my news online. Sad to say, the US media does not provide live stream unless one has cable, which I can't afford. So I had to go to the online source available--Russia Today. Therefore much of my information has come from RT, and I have a very different intake of information than that found on ABC, CBS, NBC, and even PBS.
Dive with me into the orange infinity......
I have watched carefully though since the dissolution of the USSR, and I have witnessed how the US has violated it's agreements not to encroach on Russian space and has, in fact, annexed more and more countries into NATO and surrounded the Great Bear with US bases. If I were Russia, these actions would scare me, just as we were scared by the possibility of Russian missiles in Cuba.
I do feel very strongly that until we can grow to the point where we can both report and intake honestly, we are not making much progress toward the ability to resolve our differences without resort to bloodshed and possible annihilation.
Evolution demands that we do this. We must grow and learn to resolve our differences without resort to bloodshed because...with the weaponry we now have, escalation is indeed a very DEAD end.
We evolve together or die together. Really simple. Honesty, free of propaganda, comes first.
