Latest report now says Russia has 100,000 troops massed on the eastern border. One misunderstood order, and the whole area could go up like a tinder box. Poland’s unprecedented call up of the their reserves indicates how volatile the situation has become.
Compounding this is the lack of faith that the Eastern Bloc countries now have in the US leadership. Now Obama’s meeting with the Saudi’s about Iran and Syria. Once again a perceived lack of trust regarding US leadership. Everywhere I look, I see countries that have lost faith in America and it’s willingness stand with it’s allies.
If I can see it, I am sure that Putin not only sees it, but helps to reinforce it. He has been able to move with impunity. Funny I seem to remember another leader who did the same thing seventy some years ago. Once again it’s time to pray for peace and prepare for war.
