Putin is a world player only bc perception is that he commands a powerful military. Now yes he can blow up the world. But he can not remotely challenge the U.S. or project zero strength around the globe. They are now no longer in the top 5 in terms of military spending. Their equipment is demonstrably inferior as witnessed by events in Iraq and elsewhere in the Middle East. Their little games at buzzing our ships is a stunt. Their economy is behind Italy..

But by all means Putin..have at it...probably impresses his gold-digging girlfriend.
