To The Victor Go The Bills: Crimea Could Prove Expensive Acquisition for Russia - WSJ.com

Excellent and so-far unreported news – Crimea is a sinkhole!!  It is already the case that Russia’s economic future is built on sand.  There is zero probability that they could ever again be a superpower, they simply aren’t rich enough and have absolutely no prospects of ever becoming so.  Will Crimea be the ball and chain that pushes them into Argentina territory?

The desire to restore the old "ego" should prove to be quite expensive, as you point out.
