Stating the Obvious

It is a strange world when stating the obvious is welcome news. Russia denies involvement in Ukraine but our envoy on the issue is having none of that denial:

Russian aggression is to blame for violence in eastern Ukraine, where people are dying in what should be seen as a "hot war" rather than a "frozen conflict", the U.S. special envoy to the Ukraine peace talks said on a visit to Ukraine on Sunday.

Yes, Russia is to blame for this war. Somebody finally is willing to state what our lying eyes have been telling us for 3-1/2 years now.

And you know what would encourage diplomacy to end Russian aggression? More body bags going home to Russia, that's what.
