The answer is nothing. Nothing has happened to the Russian military for 50 years, and President Vladimir Putin should have thought twice before heaving his armed forces into war.

Should the West Seek an Off-Ramp in Ukraine?

October 6th, 2022 5:47 PM

How does the war in Ukraine end? This is precisely the question no one is supposed to ask these days. The supposition by our thought leaders seems to be that if we keep up the pressure on Vladimir Putin in Ukraine, he'll fold and go home; his threats to use tactical nuclear weapons on the battlefield are nothing more than saber-rattling. He will then retrench on the domestic front, resolidify…

The Noose Tightens on Putin’s Ruinous Reign

August 30th, 2022 9:29 AM

WASHINGTON -- Back in the days when George H.W. Bush resided in the White House, he told me rather cryptically that I would be getting an invitation to the White House. A few days later I had luncheon with his head of the CIA, Bob Gates, one of the brightest lights that I have ever known in government. Bob wasted no time getting down to business. He told me of his concern that the Russians,…

WASHINGTON -- We have not seen the Russian President, Vladimir Putin, riding around the Russian countryside on horseback and shirtless lately, have we? In fact, much of the time, he is photographed seated at the end of a very long table in the Kremlin, and he appears to be almost alone.

August 19th, 2022 10:54 AM
