Psychotic.

It's so easy to say this without considering the consequences. Check the title of the thread (the last bit).

Hell, I remember how scary it was when they went off to bomb Tripoli and everyone thought this is it, this is the end. I was standing at my back door thinking "tomorrow I could be just particles in the atmosphere." Scary ****.

Are you sure you’re not confusing him with me?

No I had no idea you were from there. Hope all's ok with all your family and friends.

I knew he mentioned Ukraine. Can anyone reach out and see how he is? I don't have any contacts for him outside of here.

Thanks. This whole month has been a weird, unexpected trip down a memory hole.
During the first 15 years of my life, crossing the Ambassador Bridge (the most
talked-about crossing when it came to those idiot "truckers") to go visit my
Ukrainian grandparents was a pretty common thing for me (I witnessed the
first moon landing while staying there). Now, we have this crap going on.

Being American and Canadian or having Ukrainian ancestry is a negligible issue -
it's the full-on audacity and immensity of this - especially if something goes
"accidentally" wrong regarding possible activity in NATO member states and
how it will be dealt with. Putin had his sights on Central and Eastern Europe
back in December when those Russian treaties were presented.
Who's to say he won't go further?

I've been watching a lot of Tik Tok's showing what's going on on the ground and it's terrifying. I need to stop reading all the headlines as I already have issues with anxiety and this just adds to it. But on the other hand I get anxiety if I don't know what's going on, all I can think about is China joining up with the Kremlin and it's all on. Can we try not to say 'Russia' as we don't know that Russian residents even want this. Putin is literally a war criminal.

Yeah I imagine Moldova is pretty wide-eyed right now.
