This is an opinion piece from the Asia Times. I have written before that I think Putin will look to take action against American interests in other areas of the world. We’re living in the age of “hybrid warfare” and I think everyone should familiarize themselves with the concept, no matter where they stand politically.
“As the illegal Russian invasion of Ukraine grinds on and the death toll mounts – and Ukrainian resistance holds up under the Russian assault – the threat of escalation is high. Since we live in the age of asymmetry, escalation in unpredictable and unconventional ways from Russia is more likely, not less so.”
“In such a world, deterrence is dead and compellence is the name of the game.”

New to the Asia Times, but it looks like an alternative to the mainstream media.
