Lowell Ponte is nothing if not a historical scholar. He gives us a major schooling in Eastern Europe, Russia, Putin and Angela Merkel.

This should have been obvious to everyone, especially the US State Department. Therefore, a move on the Crimea was inevitable and so is a fight to the finish. Angela Merkel is buddy-buddy with Putin, which should also come as no surprise. But Russia has been a country in decline for many years. It’s just a question of whether the US and the Dollar will decline faster.
