What will Putin do next? Will para-military forces appear in eastern Ukraine or Kiev or among the Russian minorities in Moldova and the Baltic Republics? Their power will expand as far as we let them; and, if we do nothing substantial, they will dominate all of Europe and the Mideast. Thus far, it has been a contest between spartan Russia and decadent America. The Russian social fabric was rent by a century of war and revolution and Putin has brought order and purpose. Americans are war weary and debt ridden; yet, Obama undermines our confidence and our commitments. We not only need a foreign policy guided by necessity and self-interest; but, the fortitude to resist tyranny and defend freedom. The challenge is not just to stop territorial expansion or political domination; it is to empower We the People.
