[quote:Anonymous Coward 59460355:MV8yNTgwNDc3XzQ0OTUzMTgxX0M2ODQwN0Qx] [quote:Frost1177:MV8yNTgwNDc3XzQ0OTUxODc0Xzk0QUUxQzk1] [quote:FreakObserver:MV8yNTgwNDc3XzQ0OTUxODEyXzJCOTcxRTI2] [quote:Frost1177:MV8yNTgwNDc3XzUyQUM0MEEx] I'm confused. Russia had no trouble invading Georgia in 2008 when there was a scrap on the border with Georgia, but now when pro-Russian Ukrainian's are being shredded (literally) Russia repeals legislation to allow them to use force in Ukraine. I think Putin knows the West can crush him monetarily, so he's protecting his economy by showing the west he'll back off and he's sorry for being a bad, bad Putin. Does anyone else think Putin is full of shit? [/quote] The goal from the beginning of the Ukrainian "Spring" was to goad Russia into a large-scale military intervention in Ukraine. But Putin was one-step ahead of the game and secured Crimea (the only place where Russian national security interests were genuinely threatened) without firing a shot in a brilliant deployment of special forces - those "little green men." I think the West was caught off guard and was genuinely hoping for a larger conflict with Russia over Crimea. Putin knows that the West is under the influence - Satanic influence - and that the demon has only one goal: destruction and chaos at any cost. That's what we are witnessing now in Syria and Iraq, and Putin is determined to reverse the course. This is more of a spiritual battle of wills than a war that can be won on the battlefield. Genuine warriors understand that there are never any winners in any war, even those that are justified. [/quote] What you say makes sense, and maybe I'm just used to how the media in U.S. reacts and beats the war drum when people overseas are being killed. Syria is a perfect example. CNN made sure to come out in force and back the war effort for Obammy, but it failed in the end. The agenda is so out in the open it's silly. Again you could be right, and maybe Putin is hoping to sit back and let the U.S. and her pal's exhaust themselves in the Middle East. If I was Putin I would be worried with NATO on my border. I think one day NATO will roll in Russia like Napoleon did, and at that point it will be too late for Russia. The cold won't save them this time. [/quote] Also Putin will never allow the south east Ukraine to be in NATO/EU hold, it will mean an end of Russia in a year or two, NATO assets in that area will give them a window of 1 hr to destroy Russian interests. What I worry about if Putin is on verge of loosing this tactical war, will he attempt a first nuclear strike on US interests???? [/quote]
