NOTHING in your rationale justify a US declaration of war to Russia.

Did I say declaring war on Russia? Not sure that's called for nor wise at this point. I was talking about exploring a Congressional way to declare military action in a particular region to assist a sovereign, free country from invasion of a hostile aggressor country. Limited action and limited scope - kind of like the action Reagan took with Grenada. The citizens of Granada were saved from a hard-line Marxist coup and aggressor countries took note, backing off during the rest of Reagan's tenure.
This would obviously have more potential risk than tiny Grenada, but my point is, our hands are not necessarily tied becasue of Obama's Leftist double-minded catatonic state. But we would have to have the attitude that we were in it to win it, else you end up with a Vietnam-type stalemate. If we weren't prepared to win, we should stay out and let Putin have his way. But at some point, we should be ready to step in if necessary - Putin seems to have more plans. Also, watch out for these other countries who are going to be emboldened by Obama's double-minded weakness.
