THE HAGUE President Obama began a four-day visit to Europe on Monday with a quick tour of the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam, home to many of the masterworks of Rembrandt and other celebrated Dutch painters, before starting a series of critical consultations with allies about the fast-moving situation in Ukraine.
Mr. Obamas trip is already being overshadowed by the actions of President Vladimir V. Putin of Russia. The countrys forces seized another Ukrainian military base in Crimea early Monday, as Mr. Obama and other world leaders gathered in the Netherlands. Mr. Obama has called an emergency meeting of the Group of 7 industrial nations that will convene here Monday evening.
Europe and America are united in our support of the Ukrainian government and the Ukrainian people, Mr. Obama said in a brief statement after touring the museum with Mark Rutte, the Dutch prime minister.
Mr. Obama made the remarks while standing in front of The Night Watch, Rembrandts depiction of a group of 17th-century militiamen. Mr. Obama called it easily the most impressive backdrop Ive had for a press conference. After leaving the museum, Mr. Obama headed to The Hague for the start of a summit meeting on nuclear security with 52 other world leaders.

Pajama Boy meets Dutch Boy.
Absolutely true. They are united in doing virtually nothing about it. I find that a bit odd since this is supposed to be a Soros op.

What are you going to do? Stand facing in the direction of Ukraine and yell, "FORE!"?
United over what? That your word doesn’t mean a damned thing? Now that’s unification!
The Russians love a good circus. The clown parade is always a crowd favorite.
Crimea is the issue.
United over Julia Tymoshenko’s call to nuke Russians and turn them into ashes? That’s what she said on a call leaked today.
"Son.....you're ON your own."
We’ve all surrendered.
“United” - yeah, right, like in EVERYBODY is together in withdrawing any significant support for the “Westernization” of the Ukraine.
No matter which way things break out in the Ukraine, the Soros oligarchy will reap (rape?) the gains from the coming devaluation and hyperinflation that is coming there.
Because that is what the Soros operation does best - currency raiding.
One World. One People. One Catamite.
Apparently, Obama is only capable of appreciating a Rembrant painting when it serves as a backdrop for HIS press conference. It’s a wonder he didn’t take a ‘’selfie’’ with it to commemorate the meeting of two masterpieces.
Yeah, united in telling the Ruskies: "Go head. Have a good day!"
Gotta wonder what Vlad's next acquisition is going to be since this one went so swimmingly well.
It shows what they think about us. To them, governments are what matters. I’m pretty sure the people of all of these nations are not united with their governments on this issue.
I am sure Putin is shaking in his boots
