As I said before...they think it's the "Great Game", a strategic error of immense importance
An error which, before this is all over is going to get a lot of people killed
The Great Game of muilticenter political force will result in NUCLEAR WARFARE, probably not with Russia, but will result via galatically stupid miscalculations in nuclear weapons being used by the USA against others as a result of being attacked here. They STILL don't know who we are.
"U.S. War Plan Leaked to Iraqis by Russian Ambassador"
Documents dated March 5-8, 2003
Two Iraqi documents dated in March 2003 — on the eve of the U.S.-led invasion — and addressed to the secretary of Saddam Hussein, describe details of a U.S. plan for war. According to the documents, the plan was disclosed to the Iraqis by the Russian ambassador.
What POSSIBLE strategic reason exists for the Russian govt to do this on the eve of war?
Is the story about the Spetsnaz showing up to remove and obliterate all evidence of WMD true?
Is Putin under the impression that Beslan and Sheeshan (Chechnya) are local problems to be handled by them?
Or is this the govt of the submarine Kursk, which makes us look like beacons of great govt?
