Why I Keep Checking The News

Perhaps I’m overreacting or being melodramatic, but I’m currently checking the news headlines every few minutes or so. In the last two or three days at least, it would seem that Eastern Europe has edged closer to a war than it has been for a long time, and I must admit I’m quite worried about it. Of course, you could point out that Russia now says it’s pulling back it’s troops from the Ukrainian border, or that this entire affair might just be one of Putin’s ploys to get everyone dancing to his tune; yet surely the last three days or so has brought us closer to a cataclysm than it has been for a long time. The ramifications of such a war could be catastrophic. I have no idea what Putin may be playing at or the forces at work here, so while the whole debacle will hopefully blow over as quickly as it arose, you’ll understand why I currently keep checking the news.
