So the financial markets are getting a breather this weekend, hoping that the powder keg lit by this century’s version of the Keystone Kops (NATO) in Ukraine a few months ago can be diffused. Well, perhaps with a little luck and some true diplomacy, the US-EU can convince this Napoleon (Putin) not to cross the Elbe (Dnieper).
However, America’s unarmed, untrained top cop appears to be making a much bigger mess of things. Or, at least, his handlers are!
