Brzezinski: That's exactly the argument that one could have made about a restraint reaction when Hitler invaded the Sudetenland, or with the Anschluss of Austria.

SPIEGEL ONLINE: Are you comparing Putin with Hitler?

Brzezinski: I think there are some similarities, but also some differences. Hitler was never particularly interested in personally making a lot of money. Putin has a side interest in making a lot of money, and that introduces a somewhat different perspective in life and one in which may perhaps be stabilizing and tempering down passions. But what is particularly dangerous is that he is a gambler
Former US National Security Advisor Zbigniew Brzezinski believes the West should stand up to Russian President Vladimir Putin in Ukraine. "We should make it more costly for the Russians to use force," he tells SPIEGEL ONLINE in an interview.

Perhaps, Mr. Brzezinski shall try to explain it to Mr. O-Bamah, whom he so passionately endorsed?

Growing up in the aftermath of WWII, the worst insult from survivors of  that environment anyone could give / receive was " . . . you're just like a Gypsy ".  It wasn't long before I figured out the history and analyses  . . . and this still hasn't changed.

There’s an eerie silence in the backyard. It’s been like this ever since the crow died. I hasten to add that I didn’t kill the crow. The poor thing was dead and floating in the fountain.

It's far from silent in my neighbourhood; if they're not holding a 500am conclave, they're constantly flying round the surrounding trees.  One even thinks she owns my balcony :=)

Акт відновлення Української Держави 30 червня 1941 р.
1. Волею Українського народу Організація Українських Націоналістів під проводом Степана Бандери проголошує відновлення Української Держави, за яку поклали свої голови цілі покоління найкращих синів України.
Організація Українських Націоналістів, яка під проводом її творця і вождя Євгена Коновальця вела в останніх десятиліттях кривавого московсько-більшовицького поневолення завзяту боротьбу за свободу, взиває український народ не скласти зброї так довго, доки на всіх українських землях не буде створена Українська Суверенна Держава.
Суверенна Українська Влада запевнить Українському Народові лад і порядок, всесторонній розвиток усіх його сил та заспокоєння його потреб.
2. На західних землях України твориться Влада, яка підпорядковується Українському Національному Урядові, що створиться в столиці України — Києві з волі українського народу.
3. Відновлена Українська Держава буде тісно співдіяти з Націонал-Соціалістичною Великонімеччиною, що під проводом Адольфа Гітлера творить новий лад в Європі й світі та допомагає українському народові визволитися з-під московської окупації.
Українська Національна Революційна Армія, що творитиметься на українській землі, боротиметься далі спільно з союзною німецькою армією проти московської окупації за Суверенну Соборну Українську Державу і новий справедливий лад у цілому світі.
Хай живе Суверенна Соборна Українська Держава! Хай живе Організація Українських Націоналістів! Хай живе Провідник Організації Українських Націоналістів Степан Бандера!
Слава Україні! Героям Слава!
Ярослав Стецько, в. р. 
Голова Національних Зборів

I remember my Dad, who was an UPA warrior - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ukrainian_Insurgent_Army - telling us that  Ukraine's constitution granted equal rights to everyone, regardless of ethnicity, faith, religion, birth, etc . . . during her short-lived freedom after WWI ( 1917 ) - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ukrainian_People%27s_Republic.

I'm not sure if he realised how far back those freedoms went; regardless, that was just part of our backbone.

" Radical hospitality  After visiting Newfoundland to meet some of the real life characters portrayed in the musical, he was keen to share the story of ' the radical hospitality ' shown to vulnerable and traumatized strangers, some of them with relatives and friends they lost in the terrorist attack itself. "

Nice description of something most of us Canadians take for granted.  Perhaps it's just " our way ", and I especially appreciate the Maritimers' ways.

For those who may not know much about Gander, this would not have been the first time that Gander's residents helped total strangers :

1998 - Swissair Flight 111 crashed a few miles from Gander, Nfld - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Swissair_Flight_111

1985 - 101st Airborne Division of Fort Campbell, Kentucky - crashed upon take-off - http://aangirfan.blogspot.ca/2009/08/lockerbie-arrow-air-flight-1285-gander.html

Historically " Gander was chosen for the construction of an airport in 1935 because of its location close to the northeast tip of the North American continent . . . During the Second World War, as many as 10,000 Canadian, British and American military personnel resided in Gander. The area became a strategic post for the Royal Air Force Air Ferry Command . . . After the Second World War, the town grew as the airport was used as a refuelling stop for transatlantic flights, earning its name ' Cross-roads of the world ' ". - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gander,_Newfoundland_and_Labrador
Come From Away, a musical about how Gander N.L. residents came to the aid of stranded 9/11 passengers is so popular at La Jolla Playhouse in Calif., it's been extended twice.

Pretty scary.
Just a few days ago, the Russian Prosecutor General found that the transfer of Crimea from the RSFSR to Ukraine in 1954 was unconstitutional – and now the same general prosecution is going to question the legality of the independence of the Baltic states. Lithuania reacted quickly, and called it a provocation. The Baltic states…

#onthisday  in 548, the Byzantine Empress Theodora, born as the daughter of one of the bear keepers of the Hippodrome and later wife of Justinian I, died of cancer in Constantinople at the age of 48.

The remarkable “rags-to-riches” story of a beautiful and ambitious young girl with an adverse background who became one of the most famous empresses of the Roman Empire alone is a remarkable. And then there is the “Secret History” of Procopius, describing her as a sexually depraved fiend and the malignant power behind Justinian’s throne, giving her a controversial memory to this day. Read more on:

Depicted below is the famous contemporary mosaic from San Vitale, Ravenna, showing Empress Theodora and her attendants.
