David, With a Home Made Molotov Cocktail, Takes on Goliath

 It is the story of David and Goliath, except now David has no stones in his sling.

With tanks rolling in, helicopters and planes flying overhead, bombs piercing their hearts, Ukrainians are left armed with nothing but their will and instructions to prepare home made Molotov cocktails. Guns handed out at seeming random to ordinary citizens on the street to somehow defend themselves against the arrival of overwhelming force by a massive, well trained, enemy.

And the world watches. And speaks of more and tougher sanctions. And waits for the slaughter to be over.

Putin has fully calculated that while sticks and stones may break bones, mere words of economic pain will never deter him. And that, in this tale, it is not Goliath, but Kyiv, that will suffer a mortal blow.

This invasion on Ukraine is so disturbing. I see myself in these people! And so many Jews still there.

Sadly, the invasion will not result in European oil embargo sanctions. More sadly, this over-dependence on Russian oil should have been dealt with long before this. The only upside might be that a deal can be made with Iran to introduce more supply. Long shot, but worth pursuing.--RE
