There are Still Heroes


Most all Americans have been watching carefully the unwarranted Russian invasion of Ukraine. 

I found this quote in the Atlantic Daily email:

Meanwhile, Ukrainians on the ground, including President Volodymyr Zelensky and the everyday citizens taking up arms against the Russian military, have reminded the world what heroism looks like.

Heroism--the world needs heroes right now and we have found them in the Ukrainian people. 

The brave Ukrainians are doing what I imagine many Americans would do if out country were invaded. They are standing in the front lines with the weapons they have. I saw a news report and there was a Ukrainian standing on guard with his double barrel shotgun!

This morning, CNN reported this by the youngest member of the Ukrainian Parliament:

Ukraine's youngest MP: 'If we can survive Stalin, we can survive Putin'

I understand the difficult situation that the United States is in by not wanting to escalate the conflict outside of the borders of Ukraine, but I can only imagine what a few A-10 Warthogs could do to the 40 mile long Russian convoy headed towards Kyiv.

Perhaps Russia should be removed from the UN Security Council. I don't even know if that is possible. 

I can only hope that the mostly-unified world sanctions against Putin have a measurable impact soon. I believe using all of the instruments of national power (DIME) against Russia will work--but, will it be too late to save the brave heroes of Ukraine?
