  •  Thank you MB for starting to dig into what I (4+ / 0-)

    think could be the big question being addressed within the war rooms of the US and Europe if Putin continues invading and land grabbing - "do we want to make money and lose people(i.e. go to war or help others go to war) or lose money and ding our economies (imposing the kind of real, deep sanctions that the banks/corporations would surely fight hard against).  

    Is there anything else that would stop Putin now, before it goes to far?

      There are those who make $ off of a fighting war, and those who lose $. There are those who make $ from a cold war, and those who don't. There are those who make money off of peace, and those who don't.

      ...and then there's all that pesky political stuff.

      So in war rooms world-wide, they're gaming out a bunch of possible progressions.

      ( I assume that you're including boardrooms within the set of " war rooms".)

      Question- how far is "too far"?

    •  Depends on if the US/NATO continue pushing (3+ / 0-)

      to surround Russia, what the Russians will do. I don't think anybody in their right mind thinks Russia has a military strategy for global hegemony. There's probably only one nation on earth that does. Russian dominance on their borders? Absolutely something they want, but you can buy dictators, you don't need to beat them in war.

      Real fixes, outside the coffin fixes, ain't ever pragmatic says Political Conventional Wisdoom.
