Yeah, right, except it is definitely well known that with that amount of spying equipment it is absolutely impossible that any western-aligned leader will somehow do something on his own. Seriously, I even doubt the can change underwear all by themselves.
It is obviously very useful for US to make everybody think that they really just allow people to make these mistakes - but every sane man should know, people can't be that much mistaken. In the same way, for Saakashwili to not consider what would happen if he attack people of South Ossetia he had to be specifically deceived and pushed in that direction. Same way in Ukraine, I mean, only 10 times more straight. I mean, if there's something wrong with the actions of the local executives, it has nothing to do with their own will - it's the errors of their administration. The tighter the control gets, the more obvious it becomes.
I don't see strategy here anymore. All I can see is a number of different moves, some of them overly calm, some panic, some are absolutely random. 8 month since the video was posted(recorded?) I don't see any changes in the situation. The ceasefire established again, but due to catastrophic military defeat in the town D., leadership of Ukraine and their supporters try to look like nothing has happened and there's still March '14 and there's a long road ahead. Even as country is in ruins and number of casualties and refugees is truly uncountable.
