Putin prepared to pounce?

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Media are chock-full of speculation that Bad Vlad is about to annex the Ukraine.

This strikes me as dubious. Ukraine is for all intents and purposes a failed state. The US-managed “Revolution of Dignity” didn’t deliver much in the way of dignity, or anything else.
Why would Putin want to take on that mess?
There’s a larger agenda in play. America is an empire in decline. It gets harder over time to play world hegemon when you haven’t won a war since 1945. Many nations in the “Western” bloc continue to take instructions from Washington, but the obvious rot within the “City on a Hill” makes it an increasingly unappealing role model.
Contrast that to our adversaries, ie those nations not willing to take directions from DC. 
China’s momentum is going in the opposite direction from America’s. Unless we do something drastic soon, China is bound to prevail.
Russia has been a threat to American interests in looting Russia ever since Putin came in and put the run to hyenas like Bill Browder. Unfortunately, Russia also, by all accounts, is a decade ahead of us in hypersonic missile technology. Russia’s trajectory also seems to be going in the opposite direction.
When a failing empire is gasping for breath, bad shit is bound to happen.
If we can just goad the Russians and/or the Chinese into reacting to one of our provocations, we’ll be fully justified to hit ‘em hard with all we got.
The freedom of the world depends on it…
Armageddon is coming sooner than you think.
