In the second scenario, the EU nations will, as they have done so many times before, fail to stand up to the U.S. and will, once again, submit to its demands, giving their grudging approval to sending the lethal weaponry to Ukraine. Now if Mr. Obama and company actually send that weaponry, then even before it arrives, it is almost inevitable that Russia will deploy a huge military force in Ukraine and occupy it from the East to the West. Checkmate!
At that point this grand geopolitical chess game in Eurasia will have reached its most volatile point; the next move will be up to the U.S. government.
