Can the human actually drink blood to get the same needs as water? I would doubt this.

Don't know, but it's an exhibit of unconditional love.

How can Putin remain silent about this?   He could immediately tell everybody to back off and that he was going in to 'rescue' these people and let them go back to their homes.

....and kill a few thousand savages along the way.

For a short time, yes. The Masai do it all the time. Lancet a cow, drink the blood, then seal the hole again with mud. It's crude, but it works.

This is unimaginable horror and evil that I have never seen before in my lifetime.  It's like a portal has opened somewhere.

You are a gentle woman. Someone I love and respect. I have a couple scars on my wrists.

I can't imagine the things that you have seen, and others here as well.  I think I now understand The Crusades much better.  I hope you're enjoying your retirement EC.   034
