To the Editor:
   In 2014, the U.S. has military bases in over 150 countries around the world. That list does not include Ukraine.  Right now, someone in the bowels of the Pentagon is putting together a campaign to hammer countries that don't yet "host" U.S. military bases with that fact. This could happen to you next if you don't sign up.
   It is not a pretty picture. Putin's adventurism in his "near abroad" has obvious parallels to Prague 1968 and Hungary 1956 and Afghanistan 1979. But more worrisome than any of those is the parallel to 1914.
