    bottom line.  

    We want a secure democracy on the business (outflow) end of the pipeline, and Russia wants Russia on the end of the pipeline, so that it can choke off the oil or, be sure that it can export its own oil through a secure outlet.

    It's pretty easy to see where our interests lie.  Putin is no dummy.  He is playing hardball, maybe to shore up the price of oil, which has been dropping lately.  Nothing like a little threat of war and uncertainty to spike the price of oil.   Iran and Venezuela play that game all of the time

    Having credibility when making an argument is the straightest path to persuasion.
