Putin has read the tea leaves and knows that his excellency has over reached on his own. He has been happy to have left our allies out in the cold and they have not forgotten: go ahead Odumbo, we are right behind you here, you just cannot see us. Meanwhile POSOTUS (thanks to made that one up) now has no clothes. Not only has he gone back on what he said to the people about needing congressional approval, he has gone on record saying we need to decommit in the mid east and in the world at large. This is what happens to a novice bettor who wins the first few bets he makes and doubles up feeling he is invincable. Putin is coming to collect the vig now.
