Strategies Have Unintended Consequences

Strategies Have Unintended Consequences

Since posting my remarks — https://www.paulcraigroberts.org/2018/09/18/can-russia-survive-her-partnerships-has-putin-made-a-strategic-miscalculation/ [1] — other comments on President Putin’s response to the loss of Russian lives have appeared. I am providing links to two of them as examples of the negative consequences for Putin:

Understand that I am not denigrating President Putin. I understand his strategy and consider his strategy to be moral and responsible. My concern is with the unintended consequences of his strategy.

Unintended consequences are a bane of mankind and must be considered and, hopefully, anticipated.
