Will Putin intervene?
Will Putin intervene?
That is the big question, isn’t it?
The DC and the Ukes have pushed him in to the position of HAVING to react, though I don’t think that reaction will be what everyone expects.
Obama set the precedent for this in Libya. Declare a “No Fly Zone”, then bomb everything in site from the air, and with cruise missiles, with “advisors” on the ground.
“Will Putin intervene?”
Putin has already intervened with special forces and irregular formations directing the guerrilla operation.
Will he outright invade Ukraine? Difficult question, he clearly would rather not, though he is leaving the option open. He threatens alot, but as we saw in Crimea, when he wants something he just does it, so he is probably reluctant to start an expensive war with possible insurgency and an arm race in Europe. At the very least he would rather reach his goals without a war. Still it is important that NATO does everything to deter him.
Putin will do nothing. He will watch as his followers are murdered—like Bush Sr. did with the Kurds. He doesn’t want a general war he might lose. He is all image and no guts. He best pull back his troops his gambit failed. The hero Ukrainians have won the day. They are the new Soviets! Putin better watch out or they might march on
Moscow and put in a Free Republic like they have in Ukraine (Sar).
Anyone “rooting” for , or believing anything from the Russian side is no friend of mine or America’s, most certainly. They are also either extremely gullible or Identify as Russians above any other allegiances, American or otherwise.
Ridiculous that these people think we Americans are such fools as to not realize who is fighting for sovereignty (legitimate) and who is fighting for conquest or to make themselves feel important and strong.
Maybe you missed it but Putin invaded Ukraine and annexed part of the country to Russia. The Russians have also been exposed as having troops who fought in Georgia fighting in Ukraine as 'rebels'.
Meaning that Putin's intervention STARTED this thing. The Ukrainians are finally fighting back.
And I say good for them!
