Flora Midwood - The Bandits

When I blogged here frequently years ago, I posted about how mental health blogger Jennifer Lauren Reimer passed away. Well, anyways, one of her friends wrote and performed a folk song about her that got some circulation.

Billy Idol - Bitter Taste

Well, this sure took me by surprise. I can imagine Marty McFly traveling 30 plus years in the future and everyone is wearing masks, riding electric bikes and listening to this song ...

There Is Likely No Withdrawal From Afghanistan

The Gulf War occurred after then Iraqi president Saddam Hussein invaded Kuwait. George H.W. Bush took Kuwait back from a dictator who had only a few years before been a tool of the West in a proxy war against Iran. Bush famously uttered “this aggression will not stand” and made a show of refraining from invading Iraq wholesale.

The Last Country To Leave Stuff Behind In Afghanistan Dissolved

Mikhail Gorbachev signed peace accords that led to a withdrawal of Afghanistan in 1989. The Soviet Union collapsed two years later, toward the end of 1991.

Russia very quickly reverted to a similar system to what it once had and under Putin's leadership, it recreated many of the institutions of the Soviet Union, such as the KGB. However, it has an economy the size of Italy and its capabilities of coercing former Soviet republics are limited to what we saw with attacks on Crimea, Ukraine, or Georgia. It can't recreate the Soviet Union as a union of 15 republics.

My Thoughts About Cuba

When the Soviet Union fell, there was adulation everywhere around the world and it was seen as a sign of "the end of history." (See book by the same title.) Everyone rejoiced except for the right wing in Russia, which recreated many of the institutions that existed during the USSR and put Vladimir Putin in charge of the task. (See the book Black Wind, White Snow.: The Rise of Russia's New Nationalism)
