This is more or less predictable. The USA, Russia’s feared enemy, is right now knocked out of the world stage. Either for a few months, or perhaps four years. They’re moving, because it’s way harder to kick them out of the Ukraine than it is to keep them out of the Ukraine.
We’re being taken advantage of. Years of building up impenetrable tanks, stealth bombers, and billion dollar aircraft carriers all to be stuck naval gazing when Russia invades due to cyber Pearl Harbor.
If this is WW3, we’ve already lost.
