History repeats. When a nation like Russia is about to collapse within, the next step is aggression. It takes the mind off problems from within.
Putin will advance aggressively. He can count on Obama to retreat aggressively. Putin has China at his side. Our allies are suspicious of the USA because of Obama-no trust, no allies.
George Washington’s vision is about to manifest itself. Whether it was his vision, or someones elses matters not. Its is becoming reality.

The flaw in the analysis is Putin is very popular even while Russians detest United Russia.

Putin has managed to distance himself from the ruling party of power even while corruption in Russia is rampant and the rule of law is questionable.

This is exactly why he needs Crimea - to show his core supporters the weak Russia of the Yeltsin years is a fading memory.

And he does not care in the least about Western opposition to his political needs at home.
