WRM in the WSJ: Russia and Europe Fight Over Ukraine

    “Putin’s hopes of reconstituting Russia’s power will be dashed.”

    WADR, WRM, how likely is a Russian failure now for a man who invaded Georgia to weak whines from Candidate Obama, who has profited most from Obama’s alleged Syria policy, and who is enjoying unprecedented prestige in the middle east that we used to dominate? There’s certainly no American position that would bolster the Europeans in their bid for Ukraine. There’s certainly no American position that would do more than whine ineffectually if Putin were to send even a token force to Ukraine. Putin’s our “partner” in dealing with Iran {cough, cough}. And Obama has no backbone that can be detected by even the most sophisticated instruments. So really, how likely is it that Putin will lose Ukraine? These are indeed perilous times.
