The real tragedy is that if it gets to that point, he will more than likely hold the nuclear option over everyone’s head.

At that point, don’t be surprised if he’s disappeared. The CIA and friends would more than likely prefer to whisk him away and offer him a lifetime of protection in exchange for him to give up.

Its definitely unjust, but the nuclear alternative is even worse. It could also come with the benefit of a denuclearized Russia. the west promises Russians money, and we take the nukes off their hands.
