Guess we should have thought about this before Kosovo, Syria, Egypt, Libya, etc.

Obama, meanwhile, is massing his security briefs in the waste paper basket and his golf balls on the first tee.

The Ukes better prepare hard for guerrilla warfare. They are not strong enough for a direct faceoff, and they should not expect substantial help from the West.

Let the Ruskies come in, then go after them all over the place. Vlad needs to pay a heavy price.

Russia will want a land route to Crimea and, of course, the industrial region of the eastern Ukraine where there are substantial numbers of Russians. The Ukrainian military is acting like a hopelessly outnumbered and outclassed group, which is just what they are.

The real question here is if Russia will go for Kiev and the whole Ukraine or will eat it up piecemeal. We are now irrelevant to the situation.

Yup. And their wives from shopping on Fifth Ave.

As Dimitri Rogozin noted, every grain of sand in Crimea is worth not being allowed to visit the West or to shop there.

Westerners think Russians care about belonging to the West. They brush it off and punishment fails with someone on whom it isn’t a deterrent.

~~~“It’s not clear what that signals,” the national security adviser, Susan E. Rice~~~

That’s right, you lying Benghazi dimbulb. It’s very complicated to figure out -— if you’re stupid enough to lie that a YouTube video caused the Benghazi terrorism attack.

Not to worry. Obama's gonna ban all these guys from Disneyland.

And if things get really serious, Obama will unfriend Putin on Facebook.

Putin is using all the trappings of Communist/socialist strategy to wage a capitalist war. Protection and control over markets of energy supplies generated by Russian resources of oil and gas particularly to europe and asia. To do this he must be in a position to threaten other suppliers. Naval and air bases in foreign lands like Cuba, Venezuela,Syria,and where-ever he gets a toe hold serve that purpose. Puts Russia in a position to threaten US and other countries competition to their markets.

Kremlin’s claims that thousands of troops massing on the border of southeastern Ukraine are merely involved in training exercises

If that's all they're doing, how about they move the exercises to central Siberia?

No problem, mac daddy just received 100 cartons of red pens so now we can all sleep better knowing that he will not shirk from drawing endless red lines that NOBODY cares about in the least.

Boy that was stressful, time for another tax payer vacation of $250,000,000.00 to relax and relieve the stress.

The other side in this conflict is the socialists in Brussels and their allies in Ukraine who want Ukraine (and Crimea) to have the same "human rights" as the rest of Europe like the "right" to commit suicide and have your organs harvested, and the "right" to have free housing and healthcare. There are a smallish number of people who would benefit from integration with the EU, mostly by selling real estate to wealthy Europeans and more consumerism in general. But consumerism and "economic rights" are not free as we saw in Greece and other southern European countries.

Faced with that choice I am not surprised that a lot of people chose Putin.

we are watching it with skepticism

She is selling herself short; she should also say she's watching it with hand-wringing, just like Carter!

There is now no area of Ukraine that is majority ethnic Russian. Putin is going to be party to ethnic cleansing?

“Stirs U.S. worry”.. What kind of emasculated, pansy-arsed language is that? I guess we are second fiddle to #1 superpower Russia now. Thanks, ladies, and the boy raised by a single feminist mommy and a cross-dressing transgender nanny.
