Russian Strategy May Have Tactical Flaws - But Fear of Reprisals from West Apparently Not Among Them

Reader comment on item: Putin's Invasion Scrambles the West
in response to reader comment: Putin may yet outsmart the West

Reader Dave seems to have at least a more nominal apporach to why the West cannot seem to get an act together to keep Zelenskyy from being totally overwhelmed and once again, sending in the cartographers to rewrite the Ukranian landscape for our 'modern times'. As historically contentious as the Ukraine is, one wonders what is really on the Russian's mind. In the photo from Bishek, Putin on the left, Xi Jinping in the middle and the Iranian Mullah in the right depicts an alliance that should have the West (EU, NATO, UN?) wondering about the future in Biiblical terms, if any have not yet considered the Russian's antics from the perpsective of how close Meshech and Tubal are to consolidating enough territorial balance that would allow a completed path to connect the Iranian territorical holdings in proximity to the Russian garrisons in Syria to commence southward through Damascus (See Isaiah 17). This may be premature, but it cannot be all that inconclusive to be dismissed. Does anyone think that the 46th American Administrative Security analysts have any such notion that as Reader Dave's analysis has indicated, Russian energy issues are NOT the sublime reasons for seeing how far the world's alliances for commerce can be realigned as the photo from Bishek suggests?
