Russia Likely Isn’t Done
Why else are troops amassing at the border?
This just in: Russia may not stop with annexing Crimea. A new U.S. intelligence report indicates that Russia may seek to takeover a corridor in Ukraine connecting Russia with Crimea. As one official put it, the assessment is “that the likelihood of a further Russian incursion is more probable than it was previously thought to be.” There are tens of thousands of Russian troops amassing at the border with Ukraine, and, while Moscow insists that’s for “training exercises,” it’s clearly meant at the very least to rattle Ukraine and the West. The whole thing even provoked Barack Obama to say something very un-Obama-like. He chastised fellow NATO members for cutting defense spending, saying, “The situation in Ukraine reminds us that our freedom isn’t free, and we’ve got to be willing to pay for the assets, the personnel, the training to make sure we have a credible NATO force and an effective deterrent force.” Surely he was reading from the wrong teleprompter.
