SEE IT: Massive Bombing Campaign Strike Ukraine

As citizens of the world, we must look upon Moscow with shame and disdain today.  Vladimir Putin, the scourge of the east, has finally launched his inevitable invasion of Ukraine in the wee, pre-dawn hours of Thursday.

The news hit American television sets late in the evening, just as CNN and others were moving out of “prime time”.

Those on the ground were quick to share their experiences, condolences, and concerns…as well as some harrowing images.

There is no telling how long Putin’s tranche of terror will last, but one thing is for sure:  The US and her allies will need to muster something more powerful than sanctions to put an end to Putin’s belligerence.
