John Kerry: Russia has until Monday to reverse course in Ukraine

Oh boy, Kerry talking tough. And if Russia doesn't reverse course by Monday Kerry will flash him the bird.....on second thought he doesn't have the cajones.

“Kerry responded carefully, saying “we have contingencies – we are talking through various options that may or may not be available.”

Yes, Longface, those “options that ... may not be available” are going to be very useful in deterring Putin.

Russia to deploy more 15 additional combat aircraft in Belarus territory in response to the increased NATO military activity along this country’s border with Poland. (Russia and Belarus signed an agreement on the joint protection of their airspace and the creation of an integrated regional air defense network in February 2009. It is part of the integrated air defense network of the Commonwealth of Independent States, a loose alliance comprising nine former Soviet nations.)

“At least the West is agreed on the Ukraine crisis. It agrees that something must be done to stop Russia’s re-occupation of Crimea, and it agrees that nothing can be done to stop it. Paradox is the stuff of foreign policy. It produces summits, holds conferences, forms and reforms contact groups. Leaders make interminable phone calls and thinktanks rush joyfully to club-class lounges. Everywhere, something must be done and nothing can be done.”

If Russian-backed lawmakers in Crimea go through with the Sunday referendum, Kerry said the U.S. and its European allies will not recognize it as legitimate under international law.

That'll scare the crap out of Putin. He's such a sissy boy, unlike John Effin Kerry who served in Vietnam.

This is just embarassing.


I agree, but here is the thing, and it’s kinda scary: We have an absolute leadership vacuum at the table where the US should be sitting. Everybody that matters knows this, e.g. Putin. This means that every despot in the world knows that the clock is ticking. They have until January of 2017 to make their move.

Putin is one, but he is not the only one. And they all have years to perfect their plans against us before their clock runs out.

I do not believe it is a matter of if. I believe it is a matter of “when” and I believe even the “when” will be in the next three years.

Agree completely.

Despots (and terrorists) prey on the perception of weakness. Obama exudes weakness and has deliberately walked away from the leadership table.

Here’s what’s coming:

China taking Taiwan
Iran attacking Israel
N.Korea attacking S.Korea

Like I really care, its their problem, do we want the Russians coming to the aid of America in defense of our First Amendment, to depose a dictator in the WH, to enforce fair and legal elections? lets just say, “Mr. Putin, please come to America with troops, we have an illegally elected President”. Get real, thats OUR problem.

Kerry is an idiotic loyal lapdog with no teeth, no eyesight, no sense of smell, it cannot hunt and it cannot fight.

NO way in hell, let them settle it themselves.

We've got a missing plane from a MUSLIM country that we can agonize over...
We have some Israeli's that we can rake over the coals for fighting back...

And, we'll always have Paris.

That’s the problem with weak-azzed Demscum Presidents: They are so weak that our enemies keep pushing, figuring that we won’t do anythiing. And they are correct.

That is, until something so bad happens that we have to act. By then we are dealing with a real mess, one with no clear way out. One of two things happens: (1) We don’t act. Lather, rinse, repeat. (2) We finally do act. And then a REAL war happens.

This will probably be another iteration of (1), which means (2) will be that much worse when it inevitably happens,

Apparently, in demscums’ deluded world, “Peace through Strength” only applies with respect to conservatives...

PS President Obama, the world is LAUGHING at you and your incompetent Secretary of State. You are a JOKE, one that will get a lot of people killed all over the world. PLEASE RESIGN, you moron, and take Biden and your entire cabinet with you! /like that will happen...

Obama is the kind of weak loser that would offer to pay Putin off on the condition Putin allows a certain level of “tough talk” go. I can totally see the Obama administration doing that. Pretending to be all big and bad-ass (not that they have),,and paying Putin off to go along.
