Having failed to prevent a Russian-sponsored referendum in Crimea, the Obama administration and its European allies refocused their efforts Sunday on keeping Moscow from annexing the autonomous Ukrainian region and expanding its military moves into other parts of Ukraine.
In a telephone call to Russian President Vladimir Putin his third in two weeks President Obama said that the referendum would never be recognized by the United States and the international community and that we are prepared to impose additional costs on Russia for its actions, the White House said.

How is Obama balancing all this with his golf game?
Threaten to send Michelle to their farmland. The thought of her eating the Russkies into starvation should rattle them.
This is not just a RED LINE, it is a DOUBLE SECRET SUPER RED LINE!!!!
Let’s see how afraid that Putin guy is now!
Can we get a county by county vote to separate from 0bama?
I really don’t think that Valerie Jarrett or the other puppeteers have the knowledge or skill to deal with this problem. Forget Obambi . . . he will only do whatever his puppet masters tell him to do.
America is in real trouble right now, and Obambi’s so-called czars are incapable of handling this . . . pray for our Republic.
We’ve got terrorists pouring over our borders, and we’re worried about Russia?
Well it DOES keep attention off a do nothing congress letting them get away with it all...
He will take all of Ukraine. And then become emboldened.
America demands Justice for the Fallen of Benghazi!
Bad move. Russia will not give up the Crimea because it is absolutely crucial to control of the Black Sea and access to the Med.
Can this wait until after the Final Four? Obama is busy right now...
“Stop! Or I’ll say ‘Stop’ again!”
What weak soggy demonstrations these so called leaders of ours do.
If they really meant business, they’d send Kerry, Hillary, Pelosi, Reid, Barbara Boxer, Hank Johnson, and Michelle over.
we are prepared to impose additional costs on Russia for its actions,
Like what? Defriending Putin on Facebook?

Regardless of your opinion of the Ukraine situation, Putin is pulling all of the strings here, and even this insane White House has to know it. Turn off the gas valves and Europe grinds to a halt, sitting in the dark.
For Putin, this is about the economic future of Russia, and Crimea plays a huge part in that. Ukraine becoming yet another victim of the Open Society/Soros NGO’s just opened up the opportunity to move.
While Obama was studying Alinsky’s “rules For Radicals”, Putin was studying Machiavelli’s “The Prince”.
We could alleviate the situation by supplying Europe with coal, but the Enviro-Nazis won’t allow it.
What magazine does O have to pretend to be selling to trick Putin into answering his calls?
