The invasion of the Ukraine has begun. We are going to witness a war like we haven’t seen in decades. One sovereign nation has crossed the boundaries of another sovereign nation with tanks and bombs. People are fleeing the country with miles-long traffic jams leaving the capital.
What are the long term implications? At the bare minimum, we’re looking at higher gas prices, which is going to lead to inflation on everything. Worst case, this act of aggression emboldens others to grab land that they’ve coveted for decades, and we end up with another world war.
Are you paying attention? What’s your take on the situation?
