Do It Again!

Bruce is running for MA House of Representatives

Cam brought to our attention this week the events unfolding as of 02.22.22 in the nation of Ukraine.  Russian threats of the past 12 months were realized if in fits and starts on Tuesday as Vladimyr Putin, President of the Russian Federation recognized the Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) and the Luhansk People’s Republic (LPR) as independent states within the country of Ukraine. 

Russian-backed rebels have been fighting the Ukraine government in those regions since 2014, when Russia invaded Ukraine. The self-styled leaders of those regions asked Russia for recognition, and Putin granted it.

This places NATO (North Atlantic Treaty Organization) members in a position prepared for war with Russia, yet another proxy engagement between western and eastern interests.

Yet, is this just an extension of the cold war?  We think not and analyze the players, recent policy maneuvers and a bit of history to help understand what’s at stake for Ukraine, Russia and the United States and her allies.

We touched upon local news regarding dispelling the rumors regarding the Gardner Police Dept and yes, it’s true, Gardner Mayor Mike Nicholson has officially unenrolled from the Republican party as an unenrolled party member.

And if that wasn’t enough……..

Bruce Chester, co-host announces his run for the Massachusetts House of Representatives.
