Opinion: It's official. The E.U. is not broke but has money to waste. Not for people in cash-strapped countries already part of the E.U. but Ukraine a non member currently being fast-tracked as a member of the doomed E.U. for whatever reason.
Between $14 and $18 billion has been committed to helping the Ukraine.
The reason could be a poke in the eye to Russian leader Putin, the fact we fear an independent Ukraine, a show of strength or even the U.S. deliberately wrecking the world so that they come up smelling of roses. OK that last one was a sick joke but it has to be said that where the U.S. goes lately chaos follows.
Thursday as news of the deal broke Sky News reported:
Will the U.K. do the same? If it does not it will cut off its nose to spite its face.
For all the American spin about how sanctions will cripple Russia it is a fact that E.U. countries will also be big losers.
Ukraine is in a pickle for sure. A western generated pickle. As they say when the poop hits the fan we all get covered. Expect a dousing any time soon.
