As neocon Max Boot said a few days ago, Ukraine “remains the biggest prize” between Russia and the West.
But why stop with Ukraine?
Boot’s comrade-in-arms, Michael Rubin is not stopping with the smaller prize. He has his sights already fixed on the Grand Prize. Rubin hopes the abhorrent violence that the U.S. has backed in Ukraine spreads to Russia itself:
Putin has pushed Yanukovych to violence—it is a tragedy that Ukrainians didn’t have a president with higher character—because he realizes that the battle begun in the streets of Ukraine might spread to the streets of Moscow. Let us hope he is right. And let us hope that those who seek freedom and liberty triumph.
