Putin's Splendid Little War' - intervention does not have to mean quagmire

'Putin's Splendid Little War' - intervention does not have to mean quagmire

Am currently considering/developing some tutorial topics on the Middle East and thought this might be an interesting thematic to explore.

Essentially it's an idea, that some commentator's have recently pointed out.

The suggestion being that Putin with his carefully planned, crafted and executed use of airpower to assist local 'native' (I can use the term and get away with it people BUT please don't try this at home!) to achieve 'stage one' limited objective (keeping Basher Baby in power) has provided a salutary lesson to the 'it'll be another Iraq-type quagmire' doomsayers in the Western political/military establishment.

Of course the Russians don't operate under the same restrictions and conditions that Western military forces are supposed to.

I don't think another Afghanistan-style quagmire is looming for the Russians.
