The collapsing US military & economic empire is making Washington & NATO even more dangerous. US could not beat the Taliban but thinks it can take on China-Russia-Iran...a sign of psychopathology for sure. We must all do more to help stop this western corporate arrogance that puts the future generations lives in despair. @BruceKGagnon

Welcome to Yalta

Last night Will Griffin took this short video while we were out walking along the promenade at the port in Yalta, Crimea.

The mountains are in the background, the black sea just across from our hotel.

The place is packed as we are sandwiched between May 1 Labor Day and May 9 day to remember the 'Immortal Regiment' - those who died liberating the former Soviet Union from the grip of the German Nazi occupation.

Today we visit the Livadia Palace, the site of the famous meeting between Stalin, Roosevelt, and Churchill here in Yalta in 1945.

Our hotel is on Roosevelt Street in Yalta and a bronze bust of FDR is just across the street from our hotel.

Things are going well.  Folks are in love with Crimea - the people are warm and welcoming.  The food is great.  The sanctions against these good people should be removed.
