The United States' government said on Monday it will decide "in days" on additional sanctions if Russia does not take steps to implement an agreement to ease tensions in Ukraine reached in Geneva last week.

The steps include publicly calling on pro-Russian separatists in eastern Ukraine to vacate occupied buildings and checkpoints, accept an amnesty and address their grievances politically, State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki said.

"If they don't take steps in the coming days, there'll be consequences," she said at a Monday news briefing. "Obviously, we would have to make a decision in the matter of - in a matter of days - if there are going to be consequences for inaction."

Yep, they are laughing at us. But then why shouldn’t they? We have the Three Stooges, the Marx Brothers, the Keystone Kops, and Abbot and Costello running the country..

What the hell is Russia supposed to do?

This is about Ethnic Russians living in Ukraine who have been shi* on by the Ukraine government since they became independent.

They're killing their own...and I believe that is their intention.

There will be a consequences in a couple of days? The libs don’t know what to do next. They’re so used to rolling over the hapless GOP with just a few words of anger. Now they’re up against someone who is telling them to go pound sand. Putin knows he can bully these people around and he’s playing a cat and mouse game with them.

Just what in tarnation does all that mid-east crap have to do with our national security?

This sounds a lot like what Putin might say to us about ranchers grazing cattle on BLM land. (If Putin was a dumb azz.)
