Obama: Putin will lose eventually
By: Carrie Budoff Brown and Edward-Isaac Dovere March 26, 2014 04:33 PM EDT
BRUSSELS President Barack Obama said Wednesday that Vladimir Putin is just the latest in a series of historys losers, comparing the Russian leader to those who came up short in World War I, World War II, the Cold War, the U.S. civil rights movement, apartheid and other major 20th-century struggles.
Times on his side, Obama argued. People always struggle to be free and eventually succeed and they will in Russia too, even if, for now, its ruled by a flouter of international law and obstinate believer in that recycled maxim that might, somehow, makes right.
Putin who waited six years between the last time he grabbed land from another country and marching into Crimea seems to feel the clocks in his corner. His grand ambitions to reunite all ethnic Russians under one flag and reassert Russian dominance in the world are clear but as a man whos 61 and been in power for 14 years already, he has time to wait for Western passions to fade, and the next opportunity to arrive.
A day after dismissing Russia as a regional power, Obamas speech delivered in the Palais des Beaux-Arts in Brussels, full of aspirational rhetoric and billed by the White House as a major address focused on the global challenge that Putin has created in Ukraine.
Russias leadership is challenging truths that only a few weeks ago seemed self-evident: that in the 21st century, the borders of Europe cannot be redrawn with force, that international law matters; and that people and nations can make their own decisions about their future, Obama said.

Guess what, Obama, it does......Always has, always will.
Who stopped Hitler, diplomats?
Putin and many Americans: Obama will lose eventually...
Good grief, it just gets worse and worse with him doesn’t it? What a idiot, does he really believe this crp he is spewing?
Americans might decide to elect Obama's impeachment team this coming November.
My conclusion: he is an uninterested in foreign policy as he is in helping create conditions that will improve the unemployment rate here in the USA.
His goal of deteriorating the positive effects of Christianity, the Constitution, and capitalism are still paramount, and he will read whatever his handlers put on the prompter to make him sound strong....this is small potatoes crap to him, and he hates dealing with it.
The man is a moron. A self-absorbed, navel-gazing, sociopathic, cold-hearted moron.
“the U.S. civil rights movement”
Yes, Odummy! The whole country lost with that one.
Once again a progressive voice speaks truth about himself through the fine art of projecting himself on another.
Some more fatuous remarks from President Barack “cold comfort” Obama.
Clown Prince nobama is a brown stain on the history of this Country.
Vladimir Putin is going to lose.... because Obama has scolded him?
The Russians are rolling on the floor dying of laughter.
The One is a looser.
A lot of people, especially here on FR, agree with Obama that Putin is Hitler re-incarnated.
Does mac daddy really really believe the same BS that he wants others to believe or is there a mental problem with him?
Obama keeps EGGING him on.......not a good idea.
Some seriously think he is delusional, maybe in the sense that he believes his own rhetoric which is mostly made up of a fantasy dream world of which socialism is the main component.
