In 2010 Russia became the primary supplier of coal, crude oil and natural gas to the European Union. Russia has periodically cut supplies of energy due to "price disputes" to the EU and particularly to Ukraine. In March of this year the U.S withdrew the last of its tanks and key New Customer Specials CALL TODAW www.proflamepropane, com striker aircraft from Germany. Russia has advanced militarily on Ukraine and is economically holding Europe that is dependent on the supply of Russian energy, at bay. Vladimir Putin is the elected Russian president of Russia but he is more a throwback to the tyrannical Soviet era leaders like Lenin, Stalin, Khrushchev and Brezhnev. He is a disciple of the Soviet era expansion, a former KGB officer and there is little doubt that he would like to oversee the re-acquisition of former Soviet republics and re- build Mother Russia's empire. Is the reality of a Europe without American military force the key to Russian hegemony in the near future? Is our desire for peace without the threat of force of our military might actually setting the table for an unwinable war in the near future? Crimea is gone. With Russian troops massed at Ukraine's border and separatists that are armed by Russia fighting a proxy war in the eastern part of the country, is there any hope that the first domino won't fall. As it appears now, 298 passengers aboard Malaysian flight 17 have perished as a result of a Ukrainian separatist missile supplied by Russia Other than hollow outcries from around the world, what will "tough sanctions" really do to stop Russia? Without strong military presence in Europe and with Europe so dependent on Russian energy, a country led by the ruthless Vladimir Putin, seems to dash any hope of stopping the re-conquest of the Ukraine What does the future hold for the other former Soviet rePublics of Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan, Belarus, Azerbaijan, Georgia, TajJkistan, Moldova, Kyrgyzstan, Lithuania, Turkmenistan, Armenia, Latvia and Estonia? A historical look at Russia's quest for the jewel of a warm water port in the Ukraine is in order. In the 1850's, which represent modern times in the history of the Ukraine, Russia was already pursuing a policy of expansion. Ukraine and Crimea at the time was ruled by the Ottoman Empire, a fading geographical, political ruling force of 600 years It had been a very successful empire beginning in Turkey and encompassing areas of Europe and Asia ruling over a diverse ethnic and religious population It was in conflict with Russia who under the pretext of protecting its Orthodox Christians moved Russians en masse into the area Russia's real goal was to promote 24 Hour Emergency Service P.OPANE I GASCheck" COUNCIl. -~ ~.~- Trained its trade, ergo potential wealth. It needed a warm water port, which Sevastopol on the Black Sea in the Crimea provided Russia was also militarizing the Black Sea with war ships to protect its trade The Ottoman Empire did not want to lose its buffer against Russian expansion and in alliance with Britain, France and Sardinia fought the Crimean War. The Allied forces beat back the Russians in a war that lasted for two and a half years. Nearly 600,000 combatants on both sides died in the conflict of direct battle, wounds and disease. That did not include civilians caught in the conflict. The result was that the Russians were forestalled until the turn of the century when the Ottoman Empire fell. In 1917 the Tsars in Russia fell in the revolution and the communists came to power with a continuing lust for the Crimea. In 1919 the Russians fought a war with the newly established Ukrainian People's Republic and brought it into the Soviet's Republic. When Stalin came to power, he reflected the Russians hatred for the ethnic differences of the Ukrainians and through genocide of starvation called Holodomor (death by hunger) killed seven million people by some estimates. During :WWII, the Germans invaded the Crimea in 1941. The "Crimean Offensive" lasted eight months culminating in a 250-day siege of Sevastopol. The Soviets were not able to recapture Sevastopol until 1944 Once again, the Crimea was the sight of death and destruction seeing nearly 97,000 German and Romanian casualties and over 84,000 Soviet casualties in some of the bloodiest fighting on the eastern front These losses do not account for civilian deaths When the Germans conquered Ukraine there was an initial acceptance and collaboration by some of the population. There was a hatred of the Soviets for their prior acts and thoughts that the Nazis would aid in Ukrainian independence Racism and anti-Semitism was rampant though and with the aid of many Ukrainians, hundreds of thousands of Jews Romis (Gypsies), intellectuals and patients in psychiatric hospitals were rounded up and forced into Janie is a 2 year old spayed black and white feline who weighs 71bs Social and outgoing, she loves attention and being petted by her human pals.

The demonstrations against him, by hundreds of thousands in Kiev, have resulted in violent battles with police where people have been killed and fires set. Putin took advantage and rapidly moved in to the Crimea claiming the need to protect Russians He holds the cards to a large portion of Ukraine and European energy through his pipelines With ethnic Russians and sympathizers fighting a proxy war supplied and advised by Russia, and the heavy historical investment by Russia in lives and treasure, the excuse used in the past for invasion, might be all that Putin needs to justify his actions. Is there anything that can be done? Is there any country or alliance that can do it or come to the aid of Ukraine? Is history about to repeat itself in a new century? Hear Ye! Hear Ye! Events are in summer-slow at the Legion so here's a couple of quotes from one of my favorite's, Thomas Sowell, Dr Professor, economist and commentator on politics and the social condition. "If the battle for civilization comes down to the wimps versus the barbarians, the barbarians are going to win." "Have you ever seen some painting, writing or clothing that you thought looked awful? Some music that you thought sounded terrible? You are free to say so only when these are products of Western civilization. Say that about something from some other culture and you are considered a terrible person, if not a racist." DA Offers Public an Inside Look at During Citizens" The San Diego County District Attorney's Office announced it will hold its popular Citizens' Academy starting in September on the University of San Diego campus. The ten-week Citizens' Academy is a free course in partnership with the San Diego County Sheriff's Department that demystifies the criminal justice system and the workings of the District Attorney's Office. A diverse group of speakers from the DA's Office, Sheriff's Department and public safety partners will discuss topics ranging from homicide to prosecuting economic crimes. Prosecutors and deputies will also cover gangs and narcotics, the Computer and Technology Crime High-Tech Response Team or "CATCH," elder abuse, human trafficking and officer involved shootings. The course includes a behind- the-scenes tour of the County's Medical Examiner's facility. "We started this program several years ago and the response has been overwhelmingly positive," DA Bonnie Dumanis, said. "It's a unique opportunity for people to meet some of the dedicated prosecutors in our office and get an inside look at what we do."
