It became apparent some time back that the darkened influences of former Soviet satellite countries could never be totally free from the dominating power the former Soviet Union held in each of the old SSR's and the remnant effects that have since regriped and regrouped in the border regions. The Ukraine is the classic example; but Chechnya takes it a step further. Indeed, the entirety of the former Iron Curtain is still under that threat. And Russian Leader Putin knows and counts on it. Further, it is becoming apparent as well that even though his current military situation is not necessarily as battle ready as he had anticipated, the determination to get as much damage done as possible in this phase will also give him a sense of what he is facing when the next phase is inevitably released to advance an apparent agenda to solidify a greater global standing in a world society that fears the Russian military presence just exactly as it has been presented.
The Russian Leader has found out just exaclty what he would be facing if, in this breakout series of actions, he is able to prepare for the further expedtionary forays into former Soviet regions that NATO has no conditioning to preserve any sense of national security for which they cannot provide defensive capabilities.
The sense of that loss was keenly felt when Polish defensive fighter aircraft would not be deployed for fear of escalation to a defense status no one is prepared for. Certainly, the 46th American Administrative staff could not let that happen for fear that the faithless American military just now released from Afghanistan would be called upon to back that up....seriously, really? In essence, Europe, NATO has no real hold on getting such support under the current regime of things from the merchants of Tarshish.
