I wonder if that is the real reason for "Putin's vacation," which he took with those who would lead his men in the next war. Perhaps more discussion than vacation, is my guess, especially with the big operations about to go down with the exercises in the Med and Far East. Physical military war is just an extension of diplomatic war and economic war; if you are in danger of losing the latter two, sometimes it is temping to transition to the former, just like what has happened in the past.
