The talking heads are at it. Still. “If we would have done this or that, or not done this or that, things would be different.” Well . . . they are right, but they don’t know how things would have been different. It is easy to create a future that isn’t going to happen.

If we should know anything by now it is that there are no short wars in Europe. There is only a slow burn of tension that erupts from one place or another every few decades. This time is different from the other conflicts since WWII because Russia is the primary aggressor — no proxy games here.
