Not sure what happened but I’m leaning towards believing Putin. If in fact Ukraine did demolish a column of Russian vehicles that would be advertised by Putin so he could have a pretext to invade and grab more land in the name of defense of Russia.

I’m no so sure. I think he’s trying to this covertly, like Crimea. I think he wants to steal without getting caught. And even provoking a war by blaming it on the Ukrainians is risky. He might have believed his own propaganda and thought more Russians in Ukraine would fight and die for him. The Putinistas on FreeRepublic might, but not people who live in the real world.

Putin would advertise that he’d sent an armored column into Ukraine?
