“Putin’s Crime, Europe’s Cowardice”

I don’t think I’ve ever seen a reTweet by David Brooks, until just now. This opinion (from France?) is from the New York Times. It is, as I see it, an accurate analysis of the facts.

You know, a 100 years ago right now there was all kinds of back and forth between diplomats and politicians in Europe in the wake of the shooting of two people in Sarajevo. What of today’s events? That dilly-dallying led to the First World War. Will anyone have the moral courage to stand up to Russia now? Only, it appears, the lonely president of Ukraine has the courage to speak the truth and act upon it. Will anyone stand with him?
