U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry provided Russia with a stern warning Thursday evening — start complying with the de-escalation agreement brokered last week in Geneva, or face the wrath of new U.S. sanctions.

Kerry delivered a terse statement from the State Department's briefing room late Thursday, during which he blasted Russia for not taking a "single step in the right direction" toward de-escalation. He criticized Russian President Vladimir Putin for what he called outlandish claims that the Internet is a "CIA plot."

I dare wonder if Obama would ever consider embroiling the US in a regional conflict with Russia on their turf.

It would successfully bleed us white and get many good Americans, whom Obama despises, killed.

There would be little hope for success, so it would discredit the military and patriotic Americans at home. And it would make all domestic issues, healthcare insurance, tax rates, etc. suddenly not worth discussing.

What a nightmare that would be.

“I dare wonder if Obama would ever consider embroiling the US in a regional conflict with Russia on their turf.

Go back to the manual...
No, I don’t mean the Constitution, but to Alinsky’s “Rules For Radicals”.

Rule #11 - Rule 11: Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, polarize it. Don’t try to attack abstract corporations or bureaucracies. Identify a responsible individual. Ignore attempts to shift or spread the blame.

That is why Obama is going personal with the sanctions.
He thinks they fear our media, and cre more about themselves, than the country.
Like the people in the White House.

Thats almost as bad - they have no idea who they are dealing with or how they, as leader of a powerful potential enemy, may react to a personal attack.

I'm also afraid that these silly clowns in DC believe all that dorm room rap session crap about the 'end of history' and that countries seeking to acquire territory by use of brute force is an anachronism relegated to the twentieth century.

As I have said before, this is Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals”, vs. Machiavelli’s “The Prince”.

No, because then the Liberal Messiah would become the modern-day LBJ. Liberals and Conservatives would loathe him. He ego would not be able to take it.

Either they assume Putin is running everything in East Ukraine (a fact not in evidence) or they're telling him to stop moving his own troops around in his own country.

So, what de-escalation is Russia not complying with, they didn't initiate an "anti-terrorist" offensive after the agreement was made, Kiev did.

If Kerry has evidence Russia has people in the Ukraine he should put it on the table instead of running his mouth.

The problem is that the Alinsky “Rules for Radicals” don’t work against Communists (Such as Putin and XI Jinping) who wrote the book on this in the first place.

"U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry provided Russia with a stern warning . . . start complying with . . . or face the wrath of new U.S. sanctions . . . Kerry delivered a terse statement . . . blasted Russia . . . criticized Russian President Vladimir Putin . . ."

I'm looking forward to the day when we hear the final empty but sternly worded warning from this administration, and America has a chance to be respected again. I suspect Putin on his off time has staffers read these warnings aloud to amuse him.

Kerry tonight: "Let’s get real → The Geneva Agreement is not open to interpretation. It is not vague. It is not optional." The Russians have been very clear, since hours after the Geneva Agreement was passed, that they expected the Right-Sector militia to be disarmed. And the Ukrainians have been just as clear that they had no intention of doing that.
