Barack Obamas speech on Ukrainian crisis seems to have left the public confused as he claimed that Kosovo broke away from Serbia after a referendum. But attentive listeners quickly pointed Obamas gaps in history there was no referendum in Kosovo.
President Obama was speaking Wednesday at The Center for Fine Arts in the heart of Brussels, Belgium, and was telling the youth crowd mostly about Russian-Ukrainian conflict over the strategic Crimean Peninsula.
He lashed out at Russia for violation of international law, its assault on Ukraines sovereignty and territorial integrity.
Obama recalled the conflict around Kosovo and NATOs involvement, making a counter-argument to Russia officials statements, in which they cited Kosovo independence from Serbia in 2008 as the precedent.
He said: And Kosovo only left Serbia after a referendum was organized not outside the boundaries of international law, but in careful cooperation with the United Nations and with Kosovos neighbors. None of that even came close to happening in Crimea.
In fact, none of that even came close to happening in Kosovo either.

As far as the liberal broadcast networks are concerned, when Barack Obama lies, its not news.
But, it seems to be in the rest of the world. Strange, huh?
It was right after the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor.
I don’t know much about this history, but BO’s speech writers—all those “brilliant” ivy leaguers don’t know anymore that he does and everyone knows he doesn’t know much of anything. Harvard must be a great school.
But were the ballots in Austrian?
It is frightening how little history our leaders know.
Obama’s teleprompter needs to do some fact checking-maybe use Google-as the gaffs & outright lies are approaching 80+%.
In their quest for power, he, along with his demonrat cohorts, have built everything on their pride and a shifting foundation of deceit.
He achieved his goals then doubled down on what got him where he is, but it will come apart at some point and he'll fall, likely hitting every rock ledge on the way down.
I'm glad I'm not him. It's tough enough living in the country that twice embraced him and granted him power, but his fall and ours will be infinitely worse.
Obama sees the world as he would like it to be. Like Hillary going under sniper fire. he lives in a Fantasy world. The Russians remember what really happened. They live in a real world. I weep for what will happen in the next two years—when our Boy-King will be tested again and again. I hope the Obamacrats like what they have done to the nation. Obamacrats will see another Pearl Harbor before 2017 if Obama is still permitted to rule by the seat of his pants.
Sadly, that is also how his supporters see him and all of them share that view as their ideology and the world they see through that filter.
It's hard to ignore the birth pangs of a world in transition and soon it will be impossible, not that they won't give it their best shot.
Interesting, even prophetic times, huh?
