45. Big picture: Is Russia expanding its influence, or is it contracting?

That's Putin's main concern. It's ours, too. We're still on the chessboard moving pieces, even if Obama denies it. Putin might "win" at least part of Ukraine by a show of force, but it remains to be seen what that really means in the long run. We looked kinda like winners for a while in Iraq and Afghanistan, and then...not so much.
