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.

Probably playing Spades with Reggie again.
Wheres Obama? Looking for a red crayon to draw a line with.
Where’s Obama? Happy Hour.
Composing a Strongly Worded Letter?
Didnt ya hear, its party time for the Dem party Obama is too busy drinking and getting high to give a crap
He’s at the Democrat Happy Hour.
Drawing a line in the (bunker) sand.
Junior is gonna get his inexperienced foreign policy arse whomped.
And tomorrow when the party is over his hacks will e press outrage at how the GOP claimed he was having a party during an international crisis.
The leader of the free world is as impotent as can be - what an embarrassment...
Strategizing the “Charge of the Light-in-the-Loafers Brigade”.
He’ll announce how it’s some poor shlub’s fault in provoking the Russians into attacking because of a crappy youtube video.
Half a prance, half a prance, on skipped the 400...
Maybe they could locate an endangered species and make everyone clear out.
It’s the weekend. He’s off until Monday, don’t bother him.
Hiding behind his wife’s a$$ (its big enough don’t ya think?)
This POS doesn’t even to deserve to comment on what Putin is doing or not doing, bamaboy can’t run this country or a health care so he needs to SHUT THE F___ UP!!!
thought he’d be playing golf by now.
Oh the fabulous charge they made....
A strongly worded letter in crayon?
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”.
That’s a good one!
Come on, Mr. Tough, flex your muscles!
Yeah, that’s what I thought, Obama, you f***ing pansy. Just like Syria was all scared of you...
...we may be at war with Russia by Monday.
Leading from behind - under his desk......
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.
what were his famous words "here's a quarter....call me" that he supposedly said during the finacial crisis...
Dear Leader is arming his mudSlime butt sniffing buddies as fast as he can!
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..
Obama would not even stand up for Americans who were overrun (Benghazi).
Too many American males now: “COOL! The prez is a brony, too!”
Wasn’t he hanging out with Trayvon’s parents? I think he was.
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.
Reagan would be embarrassed by this response. The flame of liberty must be brightly lit in every part of the world.
What should America do about this? Nothing, in my opinion.
playing tag with reggie love.
