I normally would blow this off like many other similar incidents over the years. It would go into the irrelevant bucket.
However as all DP'ers know we have a weakening currency and we have lost most of our economic leverage including international political clout.
We have an inexperienced anti military pure politician in the White House that does not care who gets hurt if the polls say it is "good" to go to war.
Putin and China have all the Gold so the only card left we have is the Military.
It is this combination that scares me including Japan being in a similar situation as the US so they may want to join in the fight and get their islands back from Russia as well.
If this went Hot the escalation scenarios should make you change your underwear just thinking about them.
