Just When You Thought the Sochi Drama Was Over!

Homeland Security… Sochi is over and we had a disaster-free Olympic season. Just when we thought we were out of the clear as far as Russian and security was concerned, Ukraine relations turned south and now Putin is putting us in a funny position.

I’ve read several posts, via social media this week, stating we need to state out of the whole Russia and Ukraine feud. Well, I think that is wrong. We don’t ever want to promote a culture of another holocaust, which could happen if this feud escalates.

Here is why we need to be involved;

1. This feud could lead to another cold war, not good for economic stability on a global scale or that of chemical weapons being a concern.

2. Avoid a total government takeover of the Ukraine by Russia and the forced removal of civil liberties and certain religious and social beliefs from the Ukrainians.

3. Oppressive regimes and mass casualties.

4. Nuclear and chemical weapons can harm other countries.

The list can go on and on. Homeland Security is very concerned about this situation. We all should share this same vested security concerns, if –for nothing else- to support people who may have their country unjustly taken from them!

Until tomorrow,
