… Would Vlad the Imperialist be That Crazy ?? [#attacking Ukraine]…

.. even given the political chaos in Kiev , Ukraine ‘ s military has proven to be no soft touch …

.. so far , Ukraine ‘ Army has fought very effectively and quickly to retake rebel – held lands in the east . The rebels have fought very poorly , and even the Russian – speaking areas have not exactly taken to the rebels . So what may happen next ? …

.. [h/t —]..
.. [link] to the blog news …

.. a good bit of the calculation comes from how Putin thinks about POTUS . The Europeans are , for the most part , very weak . They have denuded their defenses , and are also heavily dependent on Russian gas and oil . So , other than the U.K. and France , most of Europe is no big whoopee … the U.S. is another matter …

.. it is not the U.S. military that worries Putin . He knows that Russia is militarily no match for the U.S. . However , geopolitically , Obama is no match for Putin . That is the danger of miscalculation …

.. Putin has to be very careful . The danger of a miscalculation is ever – present . If he goof , there could be a war …. and military confrontation ….
