    Putin is playing to win.

    Anyone who is unclear on what that means — that he will use whatever power he can bring to bear to achieve the result that furthest enhances the influence, power, and territory of Russia — has no business being involved with Russia policy right now.

    Anyone who thinks that soft “power” will turn this around, or believes that the West can continue tilting the “guns or butter” ratio so drastically towards butter, also has no business being involved with Russia policy right now. Or government at all, for that matter.

      If by “Anybody who thinks that soft ‘pwer’. . . .”, I assume you mean those responsible for our so-called “Foreign Policy”, I couldn’t agree more!

    This map shows Crimea as part of Ukraine, so this obviously can’t be the Russian plan 😉
