I can hear the sound of one shoe hitting the floor which indicates the Ukrainian government has finally decided to confront terrorists who seek to create violence in hope that having a few killed or wounded would open the door for President Vladimir Putin to send in his troops in order to restore law and order, Russian style, that is. Members of the Ukrainian army and special forces drove Russian backed terrorists from an airport and soon will drive them from buildings that have been seized in eastern areas of the country. Naturally, President Putin expressed his outrage at this “anti-constitutional action” by a government to take over a building owned by the government. This from a man who sends to jail on trumped up charges dozens of Russians whose only crime is not licking his boots!
So, what might happen:
Scenario One: Putin will send his troops across the border to “protect Russian citizens who happen to live in the Ukraine”
Scenario Two: Putin will go to the UN demanding action to protect Russian citizens.
Scenario Three: Putin will send in troops but deny he sent them in while insisting they were Russians who voluntarily rode their tanks and helicopters into the Ukraine to protect Russians.
Scenario Three is very likely.
