Putin should be offering Bammy a free month’s stay on the Black Sea Beaches of Crimea.

I think you are correct. The one guy golf clapping at that European recent speech probably snapped something.

Hate to say it, but I’d more likely believe Putin than the liar-in-chief of our poor beleagered country.

“Bottom line...a bird in hand...Crimea went with Russia willingly. ..and I don’t buy for a minute, as some have attempted to say, it was at the end of a gun. International observers and many others attest to the fair reporting of the results....and even id you remove a percentage they still went with Russia.”

Russia National anthem sung to celebrate Crimea referendum in Simferopol, on March 17; 20,000 people were thre.

Very moving....some so full of pride, others even tearful. A ‘huge’ historical moment for these people...to them they are “Home”.

It's not hard to understand why Russian people are proud now..and Putin's ratings so high. Putin accomplished this in one of the most astounding and brilliant strategies executed ..... even our Military has said as much. It's very interesting reading and hearing some of their comments. They don't like Putin but they do respect the maneuvers Putin executed to accomplish his goal. Thank you for sharing this Marguerite.....they are right to celebrate....and I can say I saw this Historic moment.

Did you see the videos of the Crimea residents who went to Moscow for the signing. The ones taken by their own camera man to record it as they wanted?...I wanted to see the signing and the people...and Parliament members.....interesting to see them chatting beforehand. I saw more of the Kremlin in their videos than I've seen on line! What a work of art it is....and sooo Russian Style. Beautiful workmanship.

"Vladimir Putin also pointed out that Transnistria is essentially experiencing a blockade, which significantly complicate the living conditions for the region’s residents, impeding their movement and normal trade and economic activities. He stressed that Russia stands for the fair and comprehensive settlement of the Transnistria conflict and hopes for effective work in the existing 5+2 negotiation format."

Translation: Vladimir Putin announced he will annex Transnistria from Moldova next.

I wonder if any of the big brave media buttlickers in the press will bring this up at the next national press conference.

Or if David Gregory or the fossil Bob Schieffer or eager Obamaphile George Stephanopoulos will discuss this MASSIVE LIE on their cult-worship shows this Sunday.

Imagine....just IMAGINE if Sarah Palin had said something this wrong.

“I wonder if any of the big brave media buttlickers in the press will bring this up at the next national press conference.”

American News Media Ignores “Bogus Information” Given by Obama in Speech on Crimea & Kosovo

Milos Subotic, the International Relations Officer of the University of Pristina, Kosovo told Breitbart London, “During his yesterday speech in Brussels, President Obama showed a lack of knowledge of the political situation in Kosovo. Kosovo never organised any kind of referendum, but the Assembly of Provisional Institutions of self-government of Kosovo made a unilateral declaration of independence on February 17th 2008.

Daniel Hamilton, a Britain-based Balkans expert, and Dr. James Ker-Lindsay, a Senior Research Fellow on the Politics of South East Europe at the London School of Economics, both echoed Milos Subotic’s words.

“I think one must assume that this was indeed an error. However, it really does seem to be an incredible mistake to have made. Surely there must have been someone at hand who would have known that there was no UN organised referendum in Kosovo. It really was not that long ago,” Ker-Lindsay said.

“It’s no secret that Balkan geopolitics is a complex and confusing game – but one would hope the White House speechwriters would check their facts before presenting the President of the United States with bogus information,” said Hamilton.

Okay, so all we need to do is put Putin and the pope together for a meeting, then see if their accounts of it jibe. If they do, I think we’ll have confirmed who is the unrepentant liar on the world diplomacy stage.

The mention of Transnistria by Putin is significant. That region borders the Ukraine province of Odessa-Oblast. Conveniently, the Black Sea port city of Odessa and the Danube port city of Izmail are located there.

I believe Ukraine can say goodbye to their Eastern and Southern provinces, if not the whole nation, entirely. Losing their center of industry (Kharkov), shipping (Odessa), and food processing (Izmail) would be crushing to any hopes of true independence.

Given that Queen Putt just tried this lie with the Pope who are you going to believe?

I'm sure the conversation went something like this:

Putin: Don't make me pimp slap you again, bitch. If I like my Crimea I'll keep my Crimea and if I like my Ukraine I'll take my Ukraine and the best you can hope for is that I washed my balls good so your pretty sissy boy face doesn't get dirty.

Queen Putt: Yes, Daddy.

How does Obama expect to be respected by any foreign leaders, when he makes such gross mistakes? In foreign affairs, it’s unforgivable. No wonder rhat Putin doesn’t take him seriously.

It reminds me of a Western journalist explaining to Putin that NATO wanted to install a shield anti-missile in central Europe, to defend it from ... Iran!
Putin couldn’t stop laughing .

The very idea that nations should be comprised of contiguous peoples after such a long history of alternating waves of conquest and revolt is a pipe dream. No matter what happens, somebody winds up oppressed. It is the human condition.

The system set to be installed in Poland were mid-course interceptors. They would not have been effective in defending the US from Russian ICBMs due to the ballistic path mismatch. If they wanted to protect Europe from Russian short and medium range missiles, THAAD would be a better option. The missile defense destroyers recently deployed to the Med are there to send a message to Iran, as are the radar stations in Turkey.

Russia has been historically against any effort by the US to develop and implement a missile defense system. Why? Simple: Since 1973, their military hardware and doctrine have been defeated. In a head to head matchup against the Weat in a conventional war, they'd lose badly, even in the deteriorating conditions in which the US military currently finds itself.

The only true threat they pose is their large nuclear arsenal. Negating that with a defense system diminishes them considerably.

The former head of President Reagan’s anti-missile defense Pentagon program, Colonel Robert Bowman said in 2009, that the developing of a US Anti-Missile Defense “shield” around Russia, far from being defensive, is offensive in the extreme.

A Russian Topol-12M mobile nuclear missile. In the worst case scenario, a nuclear missile could be fired in to space that would release a pulse large enough to paralyse, for instance, Great Britain’s infrastructure, defence experts warn .

Russia could also deploy Iskander missiles, which are believed to have a range of more than 300 miles, in the Kaliningrad exclave that borders EU members Poland and Lithuania. The same missiles could also be deployed in southern Russia close to Georgia and Turkey.

It is better not to poke the bear in the ribs.

The supposed Lavrov-Kerry talks being discussed are a ruse. Russia will find a way to object to something being required by the US, it will be portrayed as the fault of the US, and once again Obama has been played. Putin would not have called Obama if he didn’t think he could play him.
