Putin is about ten steps ahead of our hapless foreign policy wonks led by Lurch. Vlad controls the political chessboard and he knows it. The west is so void of leadership. If only we could turn back the clock to three decades ago when Ronald Reagan, Margaret Thatcher, and Pope John Paul II were standing up to the communist threat. That was the major league club in action. The leaders in charge today are single A at best and the world is screwed at the moment.
Today’s “leaders” aren’t even single A....I’d say whiffle ball.
