What a Year of War Has Revealed of Three Leaders

From a Washington Post column by David Ignatius headlined “What a year of war has revealed of three leaders”:

Before Vladimir Putin invaded Ukraine, some U.S. officials privately warned their Russian contacts against hubris. It would be easy to start this war, they cautioned, but difficult to end it successfully. All of the United States’ modern military history, from Vietnam to Iraq and Afghanistan, told this humbling story. But the Russians didn’t listen.
