Exactly. The man-child post turtle is weaker than overcooked spaghetti.

So what is the immediate danger to Russian speaking people in Ukraine? Is somebody keeping them from just going the other way across the border? Seems the Russian troops have no problem getting in.

I suppose next he will annex all of Europe just to protect all of those Russian speaking Europeans.

So now we have the third vacation this year for the man-child and he cannot be bothered to come up with a salient retort? Putin is thoroughly enjoying this.

Why did Billy Jeff Clinton back the Albanian Muslim squatters who took over part of Serbia to form Kosovo? That is the question Putin should ask Obummer.

Putin will get what he wants and Europe will leave Obama hanging. He'll be alone and looking inept.

Dennis Rodman’s diplomacy is more effective than the kenyan usurper’s!

The Acting President of the Ukraine: 1987-1990 Oleksandr Turchynov served as the head of the agitation and propaganda division of the Communist Youth League Committee.

Just a footnote...

Vlad is taking full advantage of the current power vacuum (i.e. the US Presidential Administration).

“O’s” mismanagement of our long standing alliances, his disregard for the need to maintain US status as a global power, his disavowal of US exceptionalism, his reluctance to cultivate the proper diplomatic culture in furtherance of our interests…etc., have all created this power vacuum.

I am surprised that Vlad has waited THIS long to capitalize on “O’s” jejune and foolhardy conduct. I am also surprised that ONLY Vlad has done this!

I use to think moral equivalence was a lefty thing. Now I see a whole lot of “conservative” KGB bootlickers doing the same thing. They ignore the murdering KGB thug in the room and yell “squirrel!”

The ... the murdering KGB thug in the room ... is the reason the west needs leaders who are ready, if needed, to do violence on our behalf. Barry ain't that guy.

He needed to wait until after the Olympics.

What’s to rebuff? Sort of like swatting a mosquito.

Mosquitos can bite. Zero is more like a Dog Pecker Gnat, a nuisance only.
