Mitch McConnell and John Wayne McCornyn will block any effort to deny Putin access to this action.

I’d do it too if the US prez had warned that he would “join the international community to release a statement saying there would be costs”. The statement alone is probably going to be hilarious.

All things considered, this is the Monroe Doctrine operating in the Russian geographic sphere.

The only threat that will stop it is nuclear, I suppose. There’s no way without all out war that America could offset the proximity of the full range of Soviet forces.

And what economic sanctions, exactly, can America bring to bear against Russia that would have any impact?

I think we’re without significant options here...short of all-out war.

Russian President Vladimir Putin has asked the country’s senators to approve sending Russian troops to Ukraine to settle the situation there. Russian MPs have said that the turmoil in Crimea could allow for such a move.

Next, he will ask our senators for approval. On a party line vote approval will be given so our chicken s**t presidential impostor can claim "precedent" when he invades Arizona.

This is just a message to Obama and Europe. Putin has all the power he needs to do this already.

The ball is in the EUs court on this one. If they offer fast track membership to Ukraine a lot of the ethnic Russians in Crimea will suddenly lose their desire to return to mother Russia. Putin has a big problem if a huge chunk of ethnic Russians them tell him to ESAD.

Who else but Putin can stop the Ukraine from becoming Syria, Libya, or Egypt? The tricky part is now...making sure that the radical elements in that protest don't take over.

Does anyone seriously believe that those tactics in Kiev with the burning tire barriers etc weren't planned by some seriously trained outside help for the opposition?

It's a message to Obama...

Isn't it time for you to take a three week vacation in Hawaii?

senators to approve sending Russian troops

Senators vote to send troops? McCain and Gramnesty vote YES.

Oh, wait, Russian troops.

In short, we are looking at minimum a repeat of what happened to Czechoslovakia in 1968.

Their senators or ours? Ours should butt out unless it becomes
clear that WE could be in danger.

And Putin should butt out in that country’s internal affairs
too, but he probably won’t.

Putin has his rubber stamp. I guess that means that it is time to cut our military even further. Forward under Obama.

I guess sponsoring the violent overthrow of the freely elected government in Ukraine and installing neo-Nazis who give Nazi salutes wasn’t such a good idea.

ALL of Russia’s Black Sea fleet is in the Ukraine. There is no way they are not going to protect their interests. They just signed a new lease until 2042 for the ports they use.
