The Russian is now committed; there is no return to the way it was for him to retreat.
That it is embossed in the papers he signed to absorb his version of the Ukraine is nothing more than a taunt to the world to prove him wrong. Elsewhere in this forum, his exploits have now achieved notoriety in mimicking that of the Third Reich, by which the Sudetenland and the Czech environs were merged into the land of Leibensraum, the sinister realities of which this generation will be forced to learn what was not learned the last time, not to repeat the causes of human tragedies based upon ethnic inequalities: anti-Semitism in general terms; hatred of the Jew specifically. The Third Reich was not alone in its fervor for blaming Jews for its social ills; teh Soviets were in that effort also, picking up on that after the Third Reich imploded, taking up with the Mufti after the Nationalist Socialists deomstrated their lack of finesse, sticking up for the 'Palestinian' cause without a break in the emnity that all such ant-Semites bear towards Israel.
The Ukraine is the new lauchpad for such efforts: it is tainted Christianesque (Russian Orthodoxy) themes seeking to reinstate its influences over Jerusalem after the collpase of the Ottoman empire's rule.
Rule over Zion is the objective, again.
This is hard to grasp until one remembers how close the Russians are in tactical theater operations in Syria. Is that measured in miles or kilometers, hundreds of tons or kilotons?
