The growing tension between Russia and the United States is freaking me out. It seems like things are escalating quickly. I don't have a deep understanding of the global landscape but I do know that the way the US is handling this situation is making matters worse. It may be due to a lot of politicians not having experience dealing with Russia during the Cold War. They are using post-Cold War tactics that worked in countries that don't carry nukes.

Russia isn't a country that will let others squeeze them into submission. They are also willing to call the US out on its hypocrisy. I fear that the US politicians are going to continue to poke the bear until a war starts. It's a scary thought. You have to consider the worst-case scenario which is nuclear war. Gah.

But who cares about that, right? What really matters is what two colours that dress is. I see brown and pale blue/purple. How about you?
