Amoeba’s Lorica: Nothing New Under the Sun

Dear Ukraine:

How does it feel to be Czechoslovakia?

1938 occupation of Czechoslovakia by Nazi Germany, leading to the “Phoney War“.

Peace in our time!” – Neville Chamberlain, UK Prime Minister

1968 Warsaw Pact invasion of Czechoslovakia

“Russia … aired a documentary on state television in 2015 that argued, essentially without evidence, that the invasion of Czechoslovakia was an attempt to prevent a NATO-led coup …

“… when the invasion started, the US could do no more than condemn – which Brezhnev knew. … neither President Johnson nor the American people were interested in getting involved in another proxy war against the Communists. And so, despite near global condemnation, no-one did anything.”

What has been is what will be, and what has been done is what will be done; there is nothing new under the sun. – Ecclesiastes 1:9 (NRSV)
