Russian Planes, Helicopters, Troops Enter Crimea [Where's Obama?]
NBCNews ^ | February 28, 2014

Posted on 02/28/2014 8:01:12 PM PST by Steelfish

Russian Planes, Helicopters, Troops Enter Crimea Russian transport planes and helicopters flew into Crimea on Friday, and a warship blocked Ukrainian coast guard vessels, raising new concerns about military intervention by Moscow.

Armored personnel carriers were seen on the roads and troops secured the main military airport, where more Russians were flying into the autonomous region in southern Ukraine.

Ukraine's U.N. ambassador denounced the border crossing as illegal but said the country, just days after a power shift that ousted Russian-friendly president Viktor Yanukovych, could handle the display of military might.

"We are strong enough to defend ourselves,'' Ambassador Yuriy Sergeyev told reporters after briefing the U.N. Security Council in a closed-door session.

Earlier, President Barack Obama warned that “there will be costs to any military intervention in Ukraine,”

At the U.N., Russian Ambassador Vitaly Churkin insisted the movements were "within the framework" of Moscow's pre-existing agreement with Ukraine on military presence in the former Soviet republic.

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Mike Rogers said it appeared to him that the Russian military now controls the Crimean peninsula.

Tomorrow is the first day of March and you know what that means - the NCAA basketball tournament. March Madness! So BHO’s mind will be on that for the next few weeks. Does anyone know if The Won has filled out his brackets, yet?

The Current Occupant is pretty much standing there with his bare face hanging out in the open, and letting it happen.

Vladimir Putin has been running rings around The Won ever since he was somehow elevated to the Oval Orifice, and sneering behind the _Resident’s back at every opportunity.

Which present on a daily basis, if not more often.

As a fascistic socialist, Putin is WAY better at making the authoritarian state work than the Indonesian. Putin has a far more ruthless way of ruling than any of the wusses in the White Hut.

Even Eric Holder keeps letting racial considerations get into the way when playing as being a “reformer”, and consequently, doesn’t run a particularly tight ship when it comes to socialist schemes. Not for nothing is his agency referred to as the “Department of Just-Us”.

Hopefully he’s reading Tom Clancy’s last novel “Command Authority” because the Russians did the same thing. Problem is he’s no Jack Ryan and Clark and Ding wouldn’t help him if they could!

Where’s a Reagan today when we need him? We have a third-world monkey in the White House thanks to the 30-year old, white single females, lesbians and homosexuals, and Planned Parenthood and the SEIU types. God help us all.

Where’s obama? I believe he’s called a conference of his advisers to determine what color line he should draw this time.

Where's Obama..

What an idiot question, but unfortunately it is what far to many folks calling themselves conservatives hang their hat on...Geez folks get your head out of your a**

Try to focus here..the world is a bigger place than your front yard. There are other countries in the world. Much as you cannot believe it those other countries don't care what you think.

They will preserve their national interest. Sorry that's a concept conservatives seem to have forgot..take note..other countries, traditionally our enemies, will not only conserve their interests but will prevail when the only idea that American conservatives can come up with is where's Obama.

Honestly, I am so disheartened these days by the fact that all conservatives seem to be f*cking idiots..

Applicable to nothing, or not, here at our house, I have been hearing alot of aircraft both fixed wing and copters early in the morning, just after daybreak and early evening over the last few days. This is not normal. We live about 60-75 miles from 29 palms Marine base in so Cal.
