How Putin Is Reinventing Warfare

Though some deride Russia for backward thinking, Putin's strategy in Ukraine betrays a nuanced understanding of 21st century geopolitics.

I think there is a general consensus that Putin is crazy... as in unstable, unreliable, dangerously impulsively crazy...

it would seem to me he ought to get his own house in order... i.e., the country his has rule over... first

but then I guess perhaps that is what he thinks he is doing... taking over Ukraine... oil to bring more wealth to his country...

the way I see it... oil is a curse... it is the root of much evil in the world...
it will not benefit Russia to gain oil wealth...
the only thing that will ever benefit the people is giving them the freedom to explore ideas, create new products, build from within...

oil encourages no building...
it only encourages the desire for a free ride, and that free ride is never shared with everyone.

my two cents... Smile
