Russian aggression in the Crimea region of the Ukraine seems to be a mere repeat of bad behavior, but the implications for the United States – and for our region – are far different than past Russian military bullying of its neighbors. This one is a bit different. Yes, it is about power, but this time, it’s not just about ideological power, it is literally about actual power – energy – natural gas to be specific.
