From Bolton to Krauthammer to McCain the big dogs of American war-mongering are discovering that the sovereignty and territorial integrity of at least one otherwise insignificant Eastern European country are suddenly vital to America's interests in the region.
That would be Ukraine, the country where the National Endowment for Democracy has been busily stirring the pot since independence in 1991.
The astute reader will appreciate that the past twenty years have not been notable for America having the slightest regard for the sovereignty and territorial integrity of other nations.
Serbia, Bosnia, Iraq, Yemen, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Libya... American bombs and American bullets wreak havoc wherever the whims of "American interests" may take them, with complete disregard for any notions of sovereignty or territorial integrity.
And to the non-stop cheerleading of Messrs Bolton, Krauthammer, and McCain.
For them this does not of course have anything to do with Ukraine.
This is the get-Putin moment they've been waiting so long for.
The people of Ukraine should think twice before welcoming the support of the war-monger faction in Washington.
Those who have in the past welcomed that support in Bosnia, in Libya, and in Iraq have ended up with a bad case of buyer's remorse.
