[ Editor’s Note: What took you so long, Henry? You should have said this weeks ago. You gave the warmongers free rein to crank the war up to full steam. Now Poland is already moving in, jumping in line ahead of NATO with its Rube Goldberg plot to become citizens of Ukraine.
Then, we have Denmark, seemly bored that international affairs are not going to hell fast enough, and has offered Harpoon missiles to Ukraine to destroy Russia’s Black Sea fleet. That might trigger Moscow slipping a tactical nuke or two into Denmark to return the favor, if it loses any ships.
The recklessness of some of these NATO countries is mindboggling. Maybe all the adult children of Denmark’s legislature should be called as volunteers for Ukraine and sent to the Donbass front to ‘defend Denmark’.
I would have lost a bet that Denmark would not have jumped on the war grifting train, as it has always seemed sensible in the past. On the other hand, one does not expect any reasonable restraint from the US whatsoever.
This Ukraine war has been on a slow burner for some time, and even the UN joined the closet warmonger team by having its Donbass OSCE observer team moonlighting as spies for NATO along the border, while shelling Donbass for eight years, and assisting in the killing of 14,000 ethnic Russian civilians… Jim W.

Veteran U.S. diplomat Henry A. Kissinger said Monday that Ukraine should concede territory to Russia to help end the three-month-old war, suggesting a position that a vast majority of Ukrainians oppose.
Speaking at a conference at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, Kissinger urged the United States and the West to not seek an embarrassing defeat of Russia in Ukraine, warning it could worsen Europe’s long-term stability.
After noting that Western countries should remember Russia’s importance to Europe and not get swept up “in the mood of the moment,” Kissinger also pushed for the West to force Ukraine into accepting negotiations with a “status quo ante,” implying that Russia takes on Ukrainian land if it means the war is ended.
“Negotiations need to begin in the next two months before it creates upheavals and tensions that will not be easily overcome. Ideally, the dividing line should be a return to the status quo ante,” said Kissinger, 98, according to the Daily Telegraph. “Pursuing the war beyond that point would not be about the freedom of Ukraine, but a new war against Russia itself.”
“We will be ready to return as soon as Ukraine shows a constructive position and provides at least a reaction to the proposals submitted to it,” General Rudenko said.
