Russia lost 27 million in WW2. That is the basis of their fear of NATO and of Europe. That is the reason why this war in Ukraine happened. Europe has invaded Russia twice in history, and it isn’t an abstract thought that there could be a third invasion. In fact, Russia considers NATO’s reckless expansion eastward as the third — stealth — invasion.

I am a voracious reader and also enjoy writing. I often have a very different point of view than the popular one. I do see value in debate, and thought it might add to the public debate on controversial issues if I were to express my contrarian opinions. I also started keeping my poems recently (I've written little pieces my whole adult life but never kept any); and I've been a photographer now for over 25 years. So I will be adding an occasional poem and hopefully interesting photograph to the blog along the way, just to spice things up. View all posts by Henry Barnard
