    Morning…that video of Mel Brooks singing in To Be Or Not To Be is not embedded correctly in the thread. And I am unable to edit the post because it is not showing up in the WordPress app. It is like the thread has disappeared. Anyway, I’m trying to fix it. Until then I hope you click the link.

    Great cartoons as always. I like the one that translates peacekeeping as legitimate political discourse.

    Russia has decided to launch military operation in Ukraine, Putin says

    “The situation requires us to take decisive, swift action,” he said in an early morning speech, adding that Moscow would carry out the “demilitarization and denazification” of Ukraine and end eight years of war in eastern Ukraine, where Kyiv government forces have been fighting pro-Moscow separatist militants.

    Explosions could be heard in Kyiv, the Ukrainian capital, and Kharhiv, in the country’s northeast. Putin told Ukrainians to give up their weapons and to return home.

    With the world absorbed by months of geopolitical brinkmanship, high-stakes diplomacy and scrutiny of Russia’s military encirclement of Ukraine, lost in the din has been this sobering fact: If President Vladimir Putin proceeds with a large-scale invasion, thousands will probably die.

    U.S. officials estimate a major assault could leave as many as 50,000 civilians dead or wounded, as Western nations warn of Putin’s intent to drive deeper into the former Soviet state.
    Experts and humanitarian groups have assessed the conflict could take a particularly devastating toll on noncombatants due to Moscow’s massive arsenal, its record of targeting civilians and the wider potential for punishing urban battles.
