1. Some rambling thoughts that occur to me as I ponder the #UkraineCrisis: A Geopolitical Tweet Thread of Uncertain Proportions.

I really fail to understand the number of people I see actually defending #Russia re: #Ukraine.
2. #Russia has security concerns. I agree. History and geography necessitates they are going to be wary of being attacked, particularly across the North European Plain.
3. But if you want to keep your neighbors out of a rival alliance, invading, seizing territories, ignoring security guarantees previously given, interfering with their internal affairs, and massing hundreds of thousands of troops on their borders doesn't seem like the best method

credo che non ci siano documenti piĆ¹ illuminanti per giudicare l'azione politica di #Berlusconi che i cablo della diplomazia USA rivelati da #WikiLeaks:con #Berlusconi,l'asse politico dell'Italia viene spostato dall'Europa a una special relationship con gli #StatiUniti
i cablo ci permettono di decifrare il livello altissimo delle logiche che hanno permesso a #Berlusconi di rimanere alla guida del Paese per cosƬ tanti anni. L'Italia di Berlusconi si impegnava automaticamente nell'interesse degli USA. Lo scriveva nero su bianco la diplomazia USA
illuminante quando diplomazia USA scrive: sƬ con gente come #Fassino possiamo collaborare, e l'abbiamo fatto, ma ĆØ piĆ¹ difficile, rispetto al governo Berlusconi

#OTD vor 79 Jahren, am 20. Mai 1941, begann Unternehmen Merkur: Die deutsche Landung auf #Kreta. Hier ein Foto meines GroƟvaters im Transportflieger. Sein bester Freund und Mann seiner spƤteren Frau wird an diesem Tag fallen. Image
Zur Einleitung ein kurzer Blick zurĆ¼ck in das Jahr 1938. Mein GroƟvater Wilhelm tritt dem #GebirgsjƤger-Regiment 100 in Berchtesgaden bei, wird spƤter Unteroffizier. Die ā€žschƶnste Kaserne des Reichesā€œ beherbergt heute das GebirgsjƤgerbataillon 232. ImageImageImage
