[quote:Anonymous Coward 59460355:MV8yNTgwNDc3XzQ0OTUzMjAyXzk1MTI2MjNB] [quote:Frost1177:MV8yNTgwNDc3XzQ0OTUxOTIzXzc2N0YxNzQ0] One more point, if Putin is just playing strategy then why did he let Medvedev invade Georgia? Didn't many in the west including the raging boner for war McCain want to fight Russia at that time? How is this any different? [/quote] The point is, georgia and Ukraine were Red line for Russia, they crossed that line in 2008, Russia responded. But this time Russia is much more surrounded by Nato and they have used world press more effectively in garnering support against Putin. Georgia was a test, and Nato realised they need more elaborate planning to take on Russia. But this time China could be the wild card.... [/quote]
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?
