And actually, save the world and Western civilisation in the process!
1. Because they don’t give a damn about public opinion of the West about them.
2. Because they have their hand on the energy tap of the world – especially Europe.
3. Because Putin is a better strategist and a poker player than any of his Western counterparts.
4. Because they are socially and mentally homogenous.
5. Because they take enormous pride in their history and culture and loath liberal cultural relativism and PC.
6. Because they are ruled by the ego maniac Tzar – whom they love.
7. Because they are spending like crazy bringing their science and related industries up to notch.
8. Because they DON”T value human life: and when ISIS et al are finished subjugating Europe, it’s the Russians who will keep them in check and actually “put them back into the Bottle and throw it in the Desert”, or even better – serve them up to the virgins in Paradise.
9. Because there is no one else in the West with big enough balls to sort out the mess.
10. Because they will pluck the spoils of both Western impotence and the 3d world countries’ backward denial.
11. Because China is still lying low.
12. Because when China does wake up, they will reach an agreement and divide the world between them.
