Victor Davis HansonHistorian’s Corner Here are three more paradoxes and pitfalls to be avoided in the Ukraine War. 5.

VDH UltraWalking the Ukrainian Tightrope. Part One, 1-4.

Victor Davis Hanson Historian’s Corner We hear daily dozens of Ukrainian war contradictions. One news show seems at odds on the war with the one following it—which is healthy.

VDH UltraWhen a Tiger Breaks Free. Part One

Victor Davis Hanson Eeyore’s Cabinet  Putin, of course, is the guilty party for the ongoing destruction in Ukraine—in the manner that similar raptors like Hitler and Stalin caused the 1939 Poland catastrophe or China swallowed Hong Kong.
