Putin Wants More

Does anyone think that Vladimir Putin's only objective is to protect ethnic Russians? Does anyone think that Putin only wanted Crimea? Do you think that Putin's territorial ambition ends in the eastern Ukraine? Where else in areas that were formerly part of the Soviet Union might Putin claim that the rights of ethnic Russians are under threat? Can any of these relatively new nations singly or collectively stand up to Russian military might? I would contend that without massive military support from the West, which America and NATO are too scared to provide, Putin will take as much as he wants. I just hope Putin does not want Warsaw, because Russia attacking Poland really would start World War III.
