Analysis: Joe Biden cranks up the pressure as Vladimir Putin mulls Ukraine invasion
Analysis by Step

With trump and Putin being such 'good friends', can up to and including invasion of Ukraine be a way for Putin/fascist Americans to try to show Pres. Biden as weak? And give the GOPhers a big chance to turn the Russian and fascist American leaders' fantasies of war into one of their "Big Lies"? And these machinations only to cause big fear of a WWIII by election time. Americans fearing war? Probably. Yet only with Pres. Biden/NATO/EU showing admirable restraint can war be averted. Without firm and resolute pushback against Putin and the prior administration RW rabid greedy snakes such as trump, Bannon, Stephen Miller et al. and military hawks' can we NOT hand the republikkkans a big tool. I can only hope some kind of political solution is found here and trust in our leader's strength and resolve.

I wouldn't be surprised if all this happening now wasn't discussed when trump and Putin in their private calls expected he would get 4 more years. And old school KGB man Putin's ego would not let him back out of that which would have been made easier if trump had retained power. Just my speculation this Monday morning.
