Interest of Peace
Maybe Vladimir Putin wants peace. Perhaps, Putin wants a piece of the Ukraine. Then Vlad will help himself to a piece of Moldova. Dread not though, Putin is surely a man of peace so long as he is appeased by weak Western leaders willing to permit the theft of parts of countries too small to defend themselves from a Russian war machine and a Russian leader who may want to rekindle a territorial empire along the boundaries of the former Soviet Union. Barack Obama is a man of peace too in the mold of Chamberlain who will start real push back against Putin just after they raise the Russian flag in Anchorage. It is not Obama alone though who is craven. Who is the Western Churchill rising with alacrity to oppose and stop the movement toward conquest by the bully Putin?
