Recent stories say we should let the Ukraine stand alone. After Russia took the Crimea, Vladimir Putin said he would stop. He did not! This has happened before and ended in a world war.

If you show weakness to an aggressor, he will not stop and others will become more active.

We have many other hot spots in the world that are watching. Putin understands strength, not sanctions. We don't have to go to war to show strength. Strong actions now, no war later.
