Remember a year or so ago I told you that Turkey is the key to the Ukraine and Eastern Mediterranean? Remember why?
Because Turkey has a million man Army and the Turks are among the most ferocious fighters in the world.
So if you want to know who kicks butt — it’s the Turks and the Greeks and only secondarily the Russians. This is the way it is and the way it has always been, though the western Powers don’t like to say it out loud.
You may also remember that Joe Biden and the Obama regime made a lot of inroads in the region by supplying helicopter money to the Ukrainian Oligarchs and setting up all sorts of vice-related “businesses” in the Ukraine —including bio weapon laboratories—-and tying up Ukrainian oil contracts and obstructing cooperation between Russia and the Ukrainian Government to secure Russian gas and oil pipelines through the region.
Yes, it’s about oil and gas again.
The Russians want to sell, the rest of Europe wants to buy, but NATO wants to supply much more expensive gas and oil and make Europe dependent on NATO instead of being dependent on Russia.
Meanwhile, the Europeans have said— WTH? If we have to be dependent let’s go with the most economical option! So they all want Russian oil and gas.
So that is why the Greek Mafia took Erdogan out of the picture — which is why the Russians are able to sweep through the region with nary a problem.
With the threat of Turkish intervention squelched, Putin was free to invade the Ukraine and clean out the “installed” Oligarchs and all the nasty immoral and illegal business ventures — including Uncle Joe’s bio weapon laboratories.
That will shut down quite a bit of evil for everyone concerned.
And once the Ukraine is cleaned out and a pro-Moscow government reinstated, the pipelines to Western Europe can proceed unimpeded, and everyone but NATO will be happy.
I suspect that Putin will clean it up, withdraw into his own borders, and leave behind a laundry list of things that Russians can’t abide.
Why? Because that’s the smart move.
Putin won’t want the expense and irritation of trying to manage the Ukraine. Better that Ukraine manage Ukrainians, and Putin and the rest of Europe have their pipelines.
