A bit dishonest here. Russia itself is at fault for the crisis in Ukraine. It’s goons were marching all over Ukraine and working with Putin’s Puppet to rob and commit violence against the Ukrainian people. You can’t blame the U.S. for somehow forcing the abuser to abuse even more than usual after their back hands failed to receive the initial desired result.

While Kerry is no great shakes, if Guardianista Simon Tisdall were Secretary of State, Putin would probably have rolled over all of Europe without demur.

Because Kerry is a clown and so is his boss. Nothing but assclowns that have no knowledge of foreign diplomacy.

Oh... I suspect it will eventually emerge that we were a bit more involved than just passively “viewing with satisfaction”.

I’m really learning to appreciate how a real president knows how to run global relationships and global affairs and operations, in a way that he can always influence events, and if he can’t change a result, he at least has chess pieces to play, that shifts the game in our favor, and against the bad guys, if not now, tomorrow, constantly pressuring and influencing things to fit our aims.

I really wish we had some grownups in office now.

Obama’s diplomacy of dithering, dabbling dilettantism has opened the door for Putin to restore his empire.
It seems to me that those who support Putin’s restoration of the Soviet Empire under a new banner must be pleased with the bumbling and flat-footed approach of Obama and Kerry.

Secretary Kerry is a fool. No one respects him and his judgment and no one wants to go out of their way to make him look good.

And the ineffectual poking at Russia have only shown the world the limits of American power. Never make a threat you can’t enforce.

The Ukraine crisis is likely to be settled on the terms Russia wants because without Russian cooperation - no settlement will work.

What is clear in Ukraine and in everything else in the last year, Kerry was President Obama’s most disastrous second term pick. One can see what kind of a President his Secretary Of State would have made.

His predecessor Hillary Clinton did nothing of real consequence. But then she also did America and its interests no real harm.

Putin dictated terms with Syria as well.

It is strength versus “flexibility” on display.

Painting Kerry as a foreign policy failure directs attention away from his boss and his predecessor. For example, notice how carefully the article avoids mentioning Libya.

Kerry: “All options are on the table” in response to Russian invasion of Crimea

I guess that doesn't mean what I think it means.

Putin has full and complete KGB dossiers on Obama, Kerry, Biden, Hagel, Jarrett, Holder and the rest in this radical administration.

Russia doesn’t need an army to bring Ukraine to its knees, all it needs to do is double the price of the natural gas it sends to the Ukraine, which Vladimir Putin has in fact already done.

The European Union has vowed to help Ukraine pay for its newly high-priced gas, which will eventually bring Europe to its economic knees too.

The Obama administration could save Ukraine and Europe from this fate by allowing, in fact, encouraging, U.S. exports of natural gas to the troubled region. It could also approve the XL pipeline and other measures to increase U.S. oil production and exports, thereby hurting Russia’s oil-dependent economy. Europe could help itself by allowing fracking so that it can become energy-independent.

Why is none of this happening? Because Obama and Europe’s leaders have bowed to environmental interests. By doing so, they have also bowed to Vladimir Putin’s interests, the most important of which is to maintain a monopoly on gas and oil going to Ukraine and Europe.

Is Vladimir Putin any more guilty for taking advantage of its oil and gas monopoly, which America and Europe are allowing it to do, than Standard Oil once was for taking advantage of its similar monopoly, which the U.S. government once permitted?

Or are the guilty parties Obama and the leaders of Europe for enabling Vladimir Putin’s actions by their refusal to help Ukraine become more energy-independent of Russia?

Why Putin is dictating terms to Kerry on Ukraine...

Because he could! :) Kerry is a coward, moron and a wuss. That would be MY guess!
