NOT because we won the cold war but because we were the worst winners I could have imagined. We turned their national disgrace into a national humiliation and Putin WAS KGB then. He was among those made a total fool of. Perhaps, as he sees it, more than most, given his position and agency.
We sell him short at our peril and if it comes to it, he'll never attack us in our strengths...however it may appear in advance.
