This line from Queen's Show Must Go On pretty much summarizes what is about to transpire and in order for me not to regurgitate same points any person with brain can understand, I give here a link to Colonel Lang's excellent analysis.
And to his superb comment on what is going on and who Trump is in all that.
In the comments to my latest piece on Grand Strategy at Unz Review I reiterated my old point:
I specifically pointed out that I am talking about current situation. Russian governance axiom for the last 100 years? Never again should some civilian cabal “rule” Russia. Only people with military-intelligence background, only with a very strong industrial-engineering, military or, generally, what is known in the West as “national security studies”, educational foundation should be in charge of Russia. Today, many from Russian elite are taught some crucial courses in Military Academy of General Staff–a timely and wise decision.
