Bring on the humanitarian crises!
Easy to tell when the aggressors are losing: they whine, and the media parrot it, that a "humanitarian crisis" is brewing. We've been reading for days about the humanitarian crisis in Gaza, and now we're being warned about a humanitarian crisis in eastern Ukraine, as the good guys are making some small progress against those who started the fighting. And now Russia is sending a huge humanitarian convoy toward the Ukrainian frontier. Now that's a crisis for you. The full-scale invasion will travel with it. No doubt we'll see ambulances outfitted with Katyusha rockets, and Red Cross workers tricked out in cammies and Kalnashnikovs, while the president of the United States plays golf on Martha's Vineyard.
