Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Current Russian policy is a threat to Western Capitalist circles because:
  1. it doesn't allow them to exploit Russian natural resources on the cheap (in fact hardly at all)
  2. it's re-asserting its own business interests in central Europe, the Balkans, the Caucuses and the Middle East
  3. it's reinforced with some very sophisticated military gadgets.
