No Reason for Peace Talks

More and more one hears out of the West tentative voices suggesting that perhaps peace talks in the former Ukraine might be a good idea, indicating that some people might be past denial (a few sanctions and Russia will fold up like an umbrella) and anger (throw all your money and weapons at the Kiev regime!) and are approaching the stage of bargaining (let’s let Russia keep Crimea but give back the rest). As with the previous stages, it is based on a very thorough lack of understanding of the current state of affairs. It is not that difficult to explain—to those who are willing to process new information—and so I will give it a try.
