Russia defied the world yesterday as it vetoed a UN resolution that declared todays referendum on the status of Crimea invalid.
Samantha Power, Americas ambassador to the UN, berated her Russian counterpart, Vitaly Churkin, at an emergency meeting of the Security Council in New York, saying his country stood alone and its actions were wrong.
Thirteen countries voted in favour of the resolution. Russia voted against the motion, while China abstained.

Terse words: American ambassador Samantha Power launched towards Russia's Vitaly Churkin during the vote
************ look at this rangy in yo face non-femiinine battle axe
I’d like to see Kerry berate lyin’ Lavrov
*******What an embarrassment to have a freaky casually dressed UN ambassador. Was she on her way to the beach?
Other nations laugh at us
Class Act, Obama - send the mouthy females to do international business. Always so effective.
Putin: Screw you.
Big f’n deal. She’s an Obama clone and no one gives a rip what she, Obama, or the US thinks. How far we have fallen...
“Unless you’re serving me a cold beer or a sandwich, honey; get out of my sight!”
I hate this female creature
No..the embarrassment is that we still the UN has any validity or standing.
That ought to pop a few liberal heads this AM. Pop.Pop.Pop...the sound of music to my ears.
Did Powers bang her shoe on the table or threaten to bury Russia?
Is berateing someone a tool or lever from the smart pawer playbook??
Would mean something if she had any gravitas, but she doesn’t
You Know Samantha (may I call you that?) one of these days you are going to meet someone who is even more mean than you are and when that day comes I hope I am there.
Russian guy: “That’s nice...butcould I please talk to an adult now?”
How dare you embarrass my fearless leader? We’ve been TRYING to emulate you. We told you we would have more latitude after the election! But not this much! Oh, and thanks a lot for those great tips on how to build a web site! You’re making it tough on my boss to change us more towards you. Thanks a lot.
Exactly — why is she dressed like a slob?
The Anti-Semitic Bitch Mrs. Cass Sunstine is a Mini-Reinhard Heydrich in the making.
And what really pray tell, are Obama, Kerry and Power going to do when the Russian Parliament formally ratifies Crimea’s admission as a federal subject of the Russian Federation?
They are not going to go war. And wagging the finger at Putin is in reality a demonstration of American impotence. He’s not going to be shamed by international disapproval to refrain from pursuing what he sees as Russia’s vital interests.
Putin doesn’t strike me as the kind of guy who capitulates when the pressure is on. America is not feared in Moscow, that is for sure.
The best example, that liberals have no idea how the world really works.
This is and always will be world ruled by the strong, not some bitchy chick, who looks like she’s double parked a mini van, full kids going to soccer practice,to run in a give that old man a piece of her mind.
Pathetic, doesn’t even begin to describe it.
china trading an abstention for a later russian abstention?
I swear, we are living in Bizarro World when the Jew hating Marxist represents the US and is berating a Russian over sovereignty.
She is certainly no JOHN BOLTON.
He was so on top of things and is to this very day, makes her look like dumbo.
She is good looking; but looks like she is dressed for a trip to get the kids school supplies at Target.
Maybe is it was dress casual day at work?
The only ‘weight’ she carries is within the US State Department and agencies of the US Government.
She’s been rightly ignored by real representatives from real government(s) that actually know something.
This is what happens when all sides suck! LOL
We have a lot of Ukrainians in our area. They come here for the same reason as others came before them.....jobs, jobs, jobs.
Crimea is about one word: JOBS.
All over the world, people vote their pocketbook.
And we’re bribing Ukraine with borrowed Chinese money.
Moreover, we’re in no mood or condition to wage a war.
The Russians have got us over a barrel and don’t we know it.
I wish there was a video of this. She is not dressed appropriately for a UN session. Then again, I would like to think it is deliberate, to show the typical American attitude towards the U.N.
That being said, from the picture, I think this is going to really escalate.
And what really pray tell, are Obama, Kerry and Power going to do when the Russian Parliament formally ratifies Crimeas admission as a federal subject of the Russian Federation?
We have seen this movie before many times. Russia invades a neighbor, appoints a Judenrat and KGB thugs take control. Then sham elections under the barrel of a gun declare loyalty to the motherland.
The the US will do exactly what it has always done. Refuse to recognize this theater and wait for history to dispose of Russian despots. Russian hegemony never endures because the country is rotten at its core.
No dress code for American ambassadors to the UN I guess.
Part of that 1994 Memorandum says....”no bribes allowed”.
You may be right - if we survive $18 trillion in debt, Obamacare and moral dissoluteness.
We’re not being destroyed by Russia - we’re doing that to ourselves.
Juat another arrogant, BOSSY, liberal know-it-all.
If you ask me, this whole argument with Russia plays right into the left’s hatred of Israel.
We’ve been arming our enemies in the mideast and now Russia will likely retaliate by arming our enemies in the mideast. In both cases, Israel ends up being a proxy target for us.
In a 2003 New Republic article, Power suggested that U.S. officials could enhance their credibility with foreign countries by publicly apologizing for America’s past failures and transgresions.
“We need: a historical reckoning with crimes committed, sponsored, or permitted by the United States she wrote. ... A country has to look back before it can move forward.”
Yea they are going to take this batty hypocrite seriously.
No wonder Vitaly Churkin couldn’t stop laughing.
"Hey Sweetie, He Doesn't Even Attend His National Security Meetings! ... Go Away!"
And if more than a Few Israeli's get roughed up along the way, the more the better >:(
We will Barry you!
"Hey Samantha, you look like you're in the wrong job! When was the last time you had a Saturday night date? I could arrange one, if you're interested."
