VLADIMIR Putin is taking control of the Ukraine.
We can do nothing to prevent this.
Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania, three EU Nato countries, are next.
Vladimir Putin is sending bombers over the UK to remind us we have cut our defence forces so much we cannot defend ourselves.
Our open door immigration policy has allowed thousands of Russians to come here pretending to be other EU nationals.
We do not even know how many Russians are living in the UK, or what sabotage they are capable of.
Before we go to war to save Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania we should stop and consider if the people living there want us to.
Most young people have left these countries at some stage in their lives and have exercised their right to live in the other EU states.
The elderly population left behind in these countries once lived under the Soviet Union.
They may not want their countries reduced to three piles of rubble by fighting.
But this all highlights how our governments of the last 20 years have failed in their primary duty to take care of our security.
