No, he's not (that) insane. Because he'd lose.

Pootin can cut the gas supply any time and cripple the EU.

So? We have other fuels.

If he starts a shooting war, he loses. Simple as that. And he knows that, which is why it's never going to happen.

If he went to war, he would lose, he has nothing to gain from that. The thing is, he more scared of the West than the West should be of him.

I wonder who's side China would come down on though? That's the unknown factor here. It's no secret China would love to topple the US as the global superpower.

Other energy sources aren't secure and other type of fuels aren't efficient enough to meet the demand of many countries, since we consume a lot and are extremely eligible on energy.

A LOT of European countries still rely on Russia, since there are no better alternative.

The Chinese are more interested in money and trade, they would probably tell Putin to pipe down and not harm potential exports to the West

No. The air and naval advantage that western Europe has is overwhelming.

As per your gas point, Europe has plenty of coal which can be pushed through parliament and built in under a year.

As per your China point, they don't need war to become a superpower (neither does India).

The European flag would be over Moscow on 6 months excluding nukes.

Or maybe they won't do nothing at all and just watch.

No one's. People seem to have this fantasy of an anti US alliance made up of China, Russia and whoever else gets tacked on. China has very different interests to Russia, in many cases they are actually rivals.

No, it is the other way around if anything. This whole issue in Ukraine is the doing of the EU and their interfering.

Any areas voting to leave Ukraine would be allowed to form their own new nation - prob a Russian satellite. Everyone wins.
