When we were the strongest leader of the free world, we had assets. We no longer have these assets due to socialism and bowing down to Chinese and Muslim leaders. Putin knows this and has asserted himself into Ukraine with no international opposition. He is now asserting Russia into Syria. Turkey will be next. Germany has been indirectly attacked through the Volkswagen suit, Merkel embarrassed by monitoring her cell phone. The world stands by while immigrants flood their countries, because our president is a Muslim and they need oil. Putin is advancing and taking over gas and oil routes and now controls the Black Sea, as a start.
