Borrowed from one Pawel Kasperek of Poland, and shared with you.

"As I glanced over news today, three interlocked newspieces tore into my mind.

1. Otto Carius, one of Germany's most distinguished tank aces died, aged 92. It is a difficult mixture of awe and terror to remember professional efficiency of Germany's WW2 military that took on pretty much the whole world with medium-sized nation, and came close to succeeding on at least UK and Russian fronts.

And today his tanks and artillery are rolling again as did Hitlers and Stalins conquering armies, raining death on cities in Ukraine. I am mortally afraid my own country will be next after Ukraine falls. Will my city end up being bombarded like Mariupol today? Will the rest of the world be passive then as it is now?"
