The U. S. Interest in Ukraine

Why Now is the time to consider owning gold

Speaking of Wonderland, I have grave difficult in seeing anything through the mists of Anne Applebaum’s most recent Washington Post column lecturing Secretary of State Rex Tillerson on his duties other than more mist. Here’s her account of the last seventy years of European history, culminating with Russia’s occupation of the Crimean Peninsula:

The Russian invasion of Ukraine and the annexation of Crimea in 2014 were an open attack on the principle of border security in Europe. The principle of border security, in turn, is what turned Europe, once a continent wracked by bloody conflicts, into a safe and peaceful trading alliance in the second half of the 20th century. Europe’s collective decision to abandon aggressive nationalism, open its internal borders and drop its territorial ambitions made Europe rich, as well as peaceful.

It also made the United States rich, as well as powerful. U.S. companies do billions of dollars of business in Europe; U.S. leaders have long been able to count on European support all over the world, in matters economic, political, scientific and more. It’s not a perfect alliance but it is an unusual alliance, one that is held together by shared values as well as common interests. If Ukraine, a country of about 43 million people, were permanently affiliated with Europe, it too might become part of this zone of peace, trade and commerce.

Nearly every sentence in those two paragraphs is either wrong, incomplete, or a distortion.
