Putin Story Over, Again
Just observing, or sharing my opinion, that the man who jails or assassinates his political opponents, equips and bankrolls rogue states and terrorist armies, cuts off Eastern Europe’s gas in a harsh winter if they don’t pay unfavourable prices, killed Poland’s leaders, blackmailed Belarus and annexed north Georgia - just what we know of that springs to mind - again has the world clucking about something that was months in the making, in broad daylight, and which is now over. They think it is brinksmanship. He knows Crimea is his. America and Europe look like a bunch of weak idiots. I think that is what they are. He has been doing this for years and long after Obama, Merkel, Cameron et al have moved on Russia will still be growing its Federation with the finesse of a sledgehammer, with impunity.
They can say what they like now. Putin has done it again. The apathy was breathtaking.
