Could NPR, BBC, and NYT Just Blurt It Out–The Russian Army Has Invaded Ukraine

They are not “on vacation.” They are not volunteers. Their tanks were not seized from Ukrainian depots. They did not build drones in east Ukraianian workshops.

It would be refreshing if Western media outlets would just say what is obvious, that the Russian army is moving from southeast Ukraine toward Crimea. The downside is that if Chancellor Angela Merkel, President Barack Obama, and NATO do not have a Plan B beyond the economic sanctions imposed so far, we Westerners might have to acknowledge we are in a strange world we thought was past. But living halfway inside Putin’s funhouse world of maskirovka is even less appealing.
