A Convoy of about 260 trucks is heading from Russia towards the border with Ukraine. Vladimir Putin, the man whose heart always reaches out to those who are oppressed or afflicted has concluded that a spirit of love and compassion compels him to send supplies to the forces of Right fighting in eastern Ukraine. After all, the man who created this conflict wants the world to know that he will “make sure that the Ukraine conflict ends as soon as possible.” Let me get this clear: Vladimir begins a war and now wants to end one! I apologize for my stupidity. After all, how can a great leader who seeks the Nobel Prize win this award unless he ends a war? In other words, this conflict was created in order to provide an opportunity for Vladimir to come across as a peace maker.
Vladimir goes to great lengths presenting an image to the world of a decisive, clear headed and wise leader. Perhaps, just perhaps, he now realizes that his actions have gotten Russia into a bind. Perhaps, he never thought that Obama or Merkel would take a tough stance. Me thinks Vladimir got out foxed by Western leaders who decided to say, “the hell with our business with Russia, it is now time to take a stand, and economics be damned! He never saw that approach coming. So, now what to do is his biggest question??
