There is no military solution on the cards. Everybody knows it.

I beg to differ. Remember what Hilter did in Poland. I think Putin is still testing the waters. If America and Nato just resort to sanctions, as mentioned by  Charles Krauthammer in his recent column, as a means to keep Putin in check, then I don't think Putin will hardly dither over wether to take over Crimea or not.

  The only viable solution is through a military confrontation. You just have to show courage and toughness when you are taking on a bully. Otherwise, the bully will make light of you and gain more confidence.  I think that's what on Putin's mind.

HERE IS WHAT SUN ZI SAYS OF UKRAINE:

1.  If you are preparing to solve the problem with force, you must declare force is not a solution, so that you can maximize its effect on the enemy through surprise.

2.  If you are unprepared to solve the problem with force, you must show the enemy you have forces ready to solve the problem, so that the enemy would desist from attacking you.

3.  If you have no dog in this fight (like China), find a dog to win a fight over (Diaoyudao).

I am saying the proper thing to do, with the world interest at stake.

You cannot draw the red line on Crimea or even Kiew. These are not Nato assets.

These are in a very real sense Putin's problem. Not mine problem, not even America or Europe's problem.

It is in America's DNA to intervene is such cases. What I can't understand is the tough talk by Merkel....................How keen are there in re igniting the cold war? Putin will be around far longer than Obama and Merkel.

What is the legacy of Obama and Merkel going to be? Are they going to be held responsible for another world financial crisis?




I've made my living, Mr. Thompson, in large part as a gambler. Some days I make twenty bets, some days I make none. There are weeks, sometimes months, in fact, when I don't make any bet at all because ...
