"在王景弘先生的新書中也顯示杜勒斯注意到中國當時只有大砲轟擊，沒有出動飛機，更沒有試圖派軍隊進攻金門，因此美方認為中方雖然當時提到佔領金門後就跟著要解放台灣，但因為以上跡象，所以得到中共對金門炮擊的目的主要是發送政治訊號，沒有軍事侵占的意圖。也因為八二三炮戰，使得原先艾森豪政府的「戰略模糊」政策失去說服力，認為正是「戰略模糊」導致中國意圖以砲戰來測試美國的決心與意圖。

「回首半生，青衫人老，在漫長的人生中有開心時候，困難日子也不少，人生大概都是失意倍多如意少。」

「人生這兩個字，就是歡聲、淚影四個字砌成，沒有甚麼奇怪。任何人無論昨日幾風光，也無論昨日幾失意，明日天光，同樣要起身做回一個人，繼續生活下去，明天總比昨天好，這個就是人生！」

WSJ這篇進一步剖析了普丁或者說俄羅斯政權的心理陰影:

"The Russian leader is trying to stop further enlargement of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, whose expansion he sees as encroaching on Russia’s security and part of the West’s deception and broken promises. He wants NATO to scale back its military reach to the 1990s, before it expanded east of Germany. The demands would reverse many of the extraordinary changes in Europe that took place in that decade.

In sum, Mr. Putin seeks to undo many of the security consequences of the Soviet Union’s collapse in 1991, an event the Russian leader has called the “greatest geopolitical catastrophe” of the 20th century.

Given that the past century encompassed two world wars, the Holocaust and much else, Mr. Putin’s superlative is revealing. It reflects what he saw at close hand in the 1990s: the collapse of the Soviet empire, Moscow’s reliance on the West for handouts as its economy went into free fall and his country’s internal chaos. The West, meanwhile, trumpeted its Cold War victory."

"蘇聯解體後烏克蘭繼承了一個重要的核武庫。但是在1994年烏克蘭、俄羅斯、美國和英國簽署了布達佩斯備忘錄，鑒於烏克蘭加入不擴散核武器條約這個備忘錄是安全保障的國際協議。根據協議，烏克蘭的核武庫被取消，核大國承諾保證烏克蘭的安全。"

"2月26日晚10點，國家安全顧問季辛吉在杭州緊急約見中國外交部副部長喬冠華，提出羅吉斯對「一中政策」表述的三點修改意見：第一，把「在臺灣海峽兩邊的所有中國人都認為只有一個中國」一句中的「所有中國人」改為「中國人」；第二，把「對這一立場不提出異議」中的「立場」刪掉；第三，「它重申它對由中國人自己和平解決臺灣問題的關心」一句中，在「中國人」前面加上一個定語——「臺灣海峽兩岸的」。喬冠華向周恩來總理請示後態度強硬地表示，這份尼克森首肯的草案，也已經在2月26日清晨獲得毛澤東主席的批准，但美方卻又提出這麼多重大的修改，若美方堅持這些修改意見，那麼，這份「上海公報」恐怕難以按時完成並簽署。喬冠華痛罵季辛吉竟然暗示在臺灣有人可能不會認同自己是中國人、或是不覺得臺灣是中國的一部分。季辛吉退讓了，有關美國「一中政策」的表述沒有做任何改變。2月28日，雙方在上海正式發表了這份公報。"

"艾波特舉例，英國和美國僅向烏克蘭提供反坦克和地對空飛彈，但並未派兵支援；德國連制裁俄羅斯的意願都沒有；法國主張修改烏克蘭憲法以便滿足俄羅斯的要求；目前只有烏克蘭在抵擋俄羅斯。"

"艾波特指出，以自由和人道為基礎的世界秩序已經受威脅，這和第二次世界大戰前的情況雷同。艾波特舉例，蒲亭和中國國家主席習近平2月初發表俄、中推進「新時代國際關係」聯合聲明，強調要「超越冷戰時期的軍事政治同盟關係模式」。就是要與北約及美國在日本和南韓駐軍的模式較勁；換言之，是要對抗美國所支持以自由和人道為基礎的世界秩序。"

"While separatists have charged that Ukrainian forces were firing on residential areas, Associated Press journalists reporting from several towns and villages in Ukrainian-held territory along the line of contact have not witnessed any notable escalation from the Ukrainian side and have documented signs of intensified shelling by the separatists that destroyed homes and ripped up roads.

Some residents of the main rebel-held city of Donetsk described sporadic shelling by Ukrainian forces, but they added that it wasn’t on the same scale as earlier in the conflict."

[ Sergei Naryshkin, the hawkish head of Russia’s spy service, known for making aggressively anti-western statements, stuttered uncomfortably as Putin grilled him on whether he supported the decision.

“Speak directly!” Putin snapped, twice.

Eventually, when he was able to get the words out, Naryshkin said he supported “the LNR and DNR becoming part of Russia.” Putin told him that wasn’t the subject of the discussion; it was only recognition being weighed up.

Some suggested this might have been a carefully scripted encounter to show the West what other options might be available, but Naryshkin’s genuinely flustered expression suggested otherwise. ]

"Deciding to recognize the two territories in Donbas would likely grant the Kremlin greater sway over these regions, already proxies of Moscow, and hand Mr. Putin an additional trump card in negotiations in his current standoff with the West.

Russia’s Federation Council, the upper house of the Russian parliament, will consider the move to recognize the breakaway regions at a closed meeting Tuesday, the Russian state news agency RIA Novosti reported, a necessary move to formalize the decrees under Russian law."

"The 31-point treaties also say Russia and the breakaway statelets will work to integrate their economies. Both of them are former industrial areas in need of massive support to rebuild after eight years of war with Ukrainian government forces.

The 10-year treaties are automatically renewable for further five-year periods unless one of the parties gives notice to withdraw."

"頓內茨克和盧甘斯克共和國允許俄羅斯可在當地建立軍事基地，並就互相保護、軍事合作以及邊界認定等達成協議，其中邊界認定相當關鍵，因為兩「共和國」所聲稱的邊界有部分地區處於烏克蘭控制之下，俄軍恐為其拿下這些地區的控制權。"
