We see today great danger of war between Ukraine and Russia. Yet, none of this conflict was unforseeable. It is intoxicating to get caught up in the thrills of demonstrations which end up overthrowing a government. Yet, the sleeping bear next door was bound to wake up and have something to say. Irresponsible leaders have now left Ukraine in a far worse position than ever, with its territory being torn apart more and more as time passes. I guess it was too much to ask for realistic foresight. Mobs do not have foresight, and no one stepped forward to provide it.
