Two Expanding Wars
Russia or those who want more Russian control of the Ukraine will take over as much of that country as they want. The Ukraine is not able to stop them militarily. The West does not have the will to shed enough blood to save the Ukraine. No sane person wants a Russia that the West is trying to back into a corner to launch World War III. Iran has been stirring the pot near Israel, both in Lebanon and Syria. The IDF responded with a strike that killed almost a dozen Iranian operatives and Hezbollah members, including an Iranian general. There can be no doubt that Iran and its proxies will try to retaliate. Either the Ukraine conflict or Israel versus Iran may spark conflagration that dwarfs the fighting now going on in Donetsk and even the carnage in Iraq and Syria.
