Czar Putin Shows His Hand
So, nearly 2,000 Russian troops are now occupying Ukraine. It seems to me, that Czar Putin is taking a few pages out of the American playbook: Create a problem, then occupy/conquer a sovereign nation state. Think Kuwait. Think Iraq. Think Afghanistan.
You and I both know that within a few months (or as little as a few weeks), Ukraine will be completely under Russian control. Why did Putin wait to make his move? That's obvious: The Olympic Winter Games (Festival For Zeus) were taking place not too far from his summer home, in Sochi.
