Impatience and Foreign Policy

 Impatience was one of the common characteristics of the German, Italian, and Japanese leaders prior to their involvement in World War II.

It contributed to their defeat.

Today, Russia's leader is certainly more impatient than his counterpart in China, and yet he appears to have more patience than the aggressors in the Thirties and Forties.

There are reasons why a more restrained approach is wise. 

Why interrupt the Western nations when they are busily creating disasters of their own?
