Vladimir Putin made a mistake invading Crimea, escalating a crisis for Russia that has been brewing for many months.The Russian leader would save himself immense grief by following Kerry's advice, but that seems unlikely. His mistake in Sevastopol may lead to others elsewhere, though hopefully Putin will avoid reckless actions. But the more Putin seeks to assert Russia's strength, the more he will actually underline its weakness.Putin's Russia may well make more mistakes: We may see a cascading chain of error that brings Russian troops deeper into Ukraine and sets the stage for civil war.But Americans and Europeans should agree that this is a story about Putin's violation of the international order. I'd be happy if we could interrupt Russia's mistakes, but so far, Putin insists on doing the wrong thing.
