One Man


It may be that ‘Vlad the Child Slayer’ wins the battle (the one against Ukraine), although that, in itself, is far from certain - but he will lose the war.

He has alienated a large section of the world, even if he can bring some despots onside, and he has done the planet a huge favour in concentrating minds regarding how countries generate their energy in the future.

Much of the world will be extremely cautious about doing business with Vlad to any great degree: to the extent where they could be held hostage to fortune in some future dispute.
