gentlemansviewpointIn the Ukraine in the last few days, the newly established Neo Fascist led Government attacked their own Ukrainian citizens with aircraft and tanks in the city of DONEZK where one million people live. More people have died here in this conflict than in the Gaza strip recently. The Pontius Pilati of the European Union do not care about the Eastern Ukraine, they think in terms of markets and products only, supported by the United States, ready to station troops on Ukrainian soil.

At this moment it is perhaps the most reliable press in the region. Will Donezk end up like Rotterdam, Coventry, Warsaw, Dresden, Budapest over half a century ago? The Ukrainian Government has instituted a new military draft and a war tax because without the United States and European support they are bankrupt. Soldiers have to bring with them their own amenities and sometimes food.

In solidarity with the plight of the people living in DONEZK, without taking any sides, I want to share this YouTube video with Stevie Winwood and Eric Clapton singing Presence of the Lord.
