Something’s up. Over the last six weeks – as I read various news sources – I have read that tensions between Russia and the US are escalating and then the news thread kind of disappears. Kim Kardashian appears every day. Donald Trump appears anew hourly. And, of course, I can read about Pit Bulls in Montreal and the latest boy-offends-girl news all the live-long-day.
But the Russia story line is interrupted. One lone report…then a week of nothing….then another…..
Both Sal and I got curious enough to search wider afield and, even with that, we are finding it difficult to get much information. It’s there. But it is NOT easy to find.
Today, some Russian diplomat stated that tensions were the worst they have been in decades. It is no longer a cold war revisited, it is imminent real war complete with nuclear missiles. Seems we are at Defcon something………….
Russian missiles have been relocated to Poland. All Russian VIPs have been recalled to the ‘Fatherland’. The UK and the US have frozen Russian accounts.
And the report I just mentioned that appeared on my news feed just ten minutes ago, is no longer there. Can’t find it. It’s off the net. Gone.
I was not so perturbed when the first story was published (that I noticed) maybe two months ago…maybe three…………but, as the stories kept coming, I noticed. Then I noticed that they were also always interrupted as if, somehow, it was published in error or else the story line was no longer current.
But then it would pop up again but worse than previously.
Now this. When a story is ‘up’ for only minutes and then you cannot find it again, something is up.
