Mary McCarthy once famously said about Lillian Hellman:
"Every word [Hellman] writes is a lie, including 'and' and 'the'."
The same thing could be said about the promises and assertions of Russia's cold, corrupt and narcissistic dictator, Vladimir Putin, whose forces continue to invade a sovereign country -- Ukraine.
We hope that U.S. and its NATO allies recognize the danger that this poses to all of eastern and central Europe and swiftly make weapons available to the Ukrainians.
Meanwhile, Russian hackers, at the behest of Putin, have been hard at work invading account information in U.S. banks.
