Putin Is A Mega Thief

Great explanation in the Wall Street Journal today for why Putin is focused in grabbing the east and south of Ukraine.

That’s where Ukraine’s energy reserves are!

To the tune of:

- $1 trillion of natural gas

- $400 billion of oil and condensate

- The worlds 6th-largest reserve of coal

And don’t forget the strategic ports of both the Black Sea and Sea of Azov.

Russia will control the energy supply chain for decades to come!

The West’s nonsense sanctions against Putin don’t even make a dent compared to what Putin is getting out of this deal!

Lesson from Putin is you can get away with massive theft and murder, and no one in this lawless world will stop you.

What do you think China is going to do with Taiwan next?
