Barack and Vladimir Face Off Over The Ukraine
Coach is Right ^ | March 8, 2014 | Jim Emerson, staff writer

Posted on 03/08/2014 8:33:18 AM PST by darkwing104

The true extent of Barack Hussein Obama’s stupidity and bluster is on full display as he and Vladimir Putin face off over the Ukraine. For Russia is there and Obama is not. And the community organizer’s talk is cheap to a man of action. This Administration is failing to dissuade the Russian incursion to the Crimean region because they are Ivy League educated and therefore ignorant of the history and the relationship between Russia and Ukraine

Russia and the Ukraine have been linked for centuries. Their histories and culture are tightly intertwined, beginning in the late 9th to the mid-13th centuries as a loose collection of clans known as Kievan Rus’. Kiev was the birth place of the Russian Orthodox Church as founded by the Apostle Andrew. So many battles were fought on Ukrainian soil to preserve Russian freedom that the Russian people would have a difficult time seeing the Ukraine as a separate nation. In fact, the idea of the Ukraine joining the E.U. and NATO would greatly concern the Bear given the history of the Ukraine acting as a buffer against Russia being attacked by her enemies in the West.

In a nutshell, Ukraine is two countries rolled into one separated by language, culture and religion. The western Ukraine consists mostly of Catholics speaking Ukrainian while residents of the East are mostly Russian Orthodox speaking Russian. During the Ukraine’s 23 years of independence, neither side would compromise but only attempt to dominate each other.

Boiled down to the very basics is this:

.......The US and the EU have offered a bankrupt country, on the border of their most powerful competitor, a loan with usury terms..... Ukraine government, vacillating between the greed of easy money from foreigners and a fair loan, but with consequences for default..... Choosing responsibly, the west retaliated, fanning the flames for a coup with a favorable replacement.

Russia, not being the drunken idiots the west portrays them to be, knew of the west's intentions and quietly prepared.

The coup succeeded,...BUT the response, defending Russian and annexing the most valuable Ukraine asset, the Crimean peninsula and it's coast.

The US and Russia have been waging a private war for at least a few years,... much of it under the guise of Arab Spring. ....Ultimately, the US has no more business meddling in Ukraine as Russia would have meddling with Mexican or Canadian politics....

Venzuela is next....

Putin v. Obama?

I hope Putin doesn't get annoyed with the yappy little puppy pretending it's a real match.

Already in the works. Putin is making his move because Obama is a weak president.

I may be the only one who thinks that any conflict between Ukraine and Russia is sad, because they’re both ostensibly Christian nations. They follow the same Lord and Savior, and there’s a rising tide of Islamofascism out there in the world.

You say that on a website dedicated to individual liberty and inalienable rights?

Instead, it is the right of the individuals in a country who they deal with. It's not the right of Putin (or Obama) or you, or anybody to determine that.

BTW even if your above principle was true (and it's not) it's worth noting that Russia has been involved with Cuba for decades.

We are reminded on a daily basis that it is never wise to send a boy to do a man’s work.

Note to Obama: Put on a clean pair of mom pants. You dropped
a little Putin in the pair you are wearing and it smells pretty bad.

Step right up to see the fight: in the far corner, Mr. KGB muscle man Vlad Putin. In the near corner, Mr. community organizer in “mom” jeans, Barry Obonzo.

My money's on Vlad. Barry couldn't fight the fictional Duchy of Grand Fenwick and win.
