So the West is indulging in empty words again - this time to Russia

I see that some parts of the West have united in a chorus to discourage Russia from considering retaking Moldova, Ukraine and the Crimea:

Whether this will be any more useful or effective than the Vatican telling off the Indian government for its actions and inaction in Orissa remains to be seen. So the result regarding Russia will depend on whether the West actually stations army/ navy/ air force contingents in positions to protect places such as Moldova and Crimea.

At present, there is no sign of this happening.

Failing that, as I have already argued for some years, it is fairly clear that Russia will indeed retake these and other areas right across what was the former USSR - and possibly beyond. Sphere: Related Content
