Actually, Jim, this would be a good time to take-back Cuba.

Would Russia get the message?

Obama to Putin: “I’ll send you a billion bucks if you pull out and credit me for saving the day. Pretty please?”

LOL. Shouldn’t this be posted under “Humor”, Jim? I mean, I know it IS your web site and all....

Putin, like the rest of the world, knows Obama’s agenda is not the freedom of ANYONE in the world...

Obama let people die on the streets of Iran....he went out and got ice cream instead.

Obama ignored the will of the populace of the United States (and continues to do so) by cramming socialized medicine and the celebration of sodomy down their collective throats.

Obama ignores the desires of our main middle eastern ally Israel, and cozies up to the Muslim Brotherhood.

Obama turned his back on the reasonable Arab and Islamic governing authorities in Egypt, Iraq, and Afghanistan...instead preferring to develop a relationship with radicals. His own Vice-President declared the Taliban is not our enemy.

Obama is not about freedom.

Obama is about turning Americans into slaves of government, and he is about putting as many other people OUTSIDE of America under the slavery of some kind of government.

Don’t overlook the possibility of a divided Ukraine. The eastern half going to Russia, and the west staying independent.

Well, I don’t know. You know he’s hunkered down in his war room with Kerry, Hillary, Hagel, Valerie and a troop of gay Scouts. You can bet they’re on it. They’re sure to discover the best move possible for the party, er, parry.

Obama has done all that he is going to do. He told Russia to get out of Ukraine and that is the end of it. He can’t help it if Russia does not do what they are told by the savior of mankind.

An additional story on USA today is that the Army canceled a British-built hybrid mega-blimp was originally developed for U.S. Army, the World's largest air-craft, after spending $300 million. It was headed for scrap after HAV could not scrape together the Army's $44 million sale price. In September, however, the Army agreed to sell it back to HAV for $301,000, less than 1% of the original cost. "We have created the world's largest aircraft from a shed in Bedford. It is something to be incredibly proud of."- http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/world/2014/02/28/worlds-largest-aircraft/5910543/`

Why does this a$$hole always $hit on weekends? Didn’t he “get tough” with Syria on a Friday-Monday power trip then throw congress under the bus to take action so he wouldn’t look like a pu$$y? Nice try, not.

From the link:

"The President's national security team met today to receive an update on the situation in Ukraine and discuss potential policy options. We will provide further updates later this afternoon," reads the full statement."

But they left out the part about going out for ice cream afterwards.

I don’t understand why anyone would ever believe that the Manchurian candidate would put up a fight against his boss. The events in Ukraine are the manifestation of a plan that has been in progress for decades.

Well it certainly worked for the best in your former neck of the woods, Slovakia. A "Velvet Divorce" probably is the best possible outcome.
