    True. The unfairness, manipulation, propaganda are run-ups to war. After it starts, all anybody sees is the atrocities, ignoring how it might have been avoided, and how it might be resolved.

    This, right here. Everything we know about human nature tells me that Putin's threat of going nuclear should be taken very seriously. He will likely use tactical nukes, bunker busters as a shot...
