We hesitate to say it, GOD FORBID, but for once the Bozo makes sense. The big issue for Putin in our view is the relentless expansion of NATO. This allows Putin to play the situation at home as a threat to the homeland which justifies the military special operation never declared as outright war. And in our view it trumps Trump as the game plan there by him was to diffuse the situation by offering the olive branch of NATO deescalation. In addition, the looming investigations into the rampant fraud in Ukraine “funding” that will undoubtedly reveal complicity with the Biden crime family as election 2024 looms also factors in “brush off” as it publicly caps his tacit support . Not a bad move JO JO as it also removes from the table the spectre of nuclear confrontation exacerbated by NATO saber rattling.
