Will’s Take: ‘The Real Danger Is the Dismemberment of the Ukraine’

As White House aides floated the idea of a meeting between President Obama and Russian president Vladimir Putin to forge a possible trade deal, Fox News Sunday’s Chris Wallace asked George Will, “Is this Lucy and the football all over again?”

’It could be,” Will said. “The president may not look on this as the Cold War chessboard, but Putin clearly does.” With the Olympics officially coming to an end, Will says that now “the real danger is the dismemberment of the Ukraine” between its Eastern, Russian-speaking half and its pro-Europe Western half.

“The United States can influence this probably by weighing in with what Putin has used quite effectively,” Will said, “with money.”
