Since Russia also assured the world that it wouldn’t invade Crimea, it sounds like the Russians are about to invade the rest of Ukraine.

BS. The elections are scheduled for the end of May. I’m betting they don’t happen due to some sort of event that threatens Russian “national security” and “stability” of Ukraine.

I used to think Obama was “Hitleresque” in his moves, motivations, etc, but have concluded that our bammy is so over his head it ain’t funny and could never be seriously compared to the shrewed cunning of the aforementioned german dictator who was incidently also brought down by his own hubris and evil. O and his totalitarian wannabees have way overplayed their hand evidenced by his daily bitchslapping on the international stage.

No invasion. It will be a Russian “peacekeeping” operation. One morning next month Ukraine will wake up and Russian Army “peacekeepers” will be manning checkpoints in Ukraine. It’s a simple op to put their insignia on and raise the Russian flag. IF the Ukrainians resist militarily Putin will bomb Kiev.

Well, that’s certainly good enough for me. I’m glad that everyone in Ukraine can now rest easy tonight. I’m sure those 600 troops that we sprinkled about over there forced Putin to reconsider. I’m so glad that we can ask Russia for help with getting the inspectors released now. That should really show how strong we are.

Barry is used to everyone fisting their foreheads to him (except here on FR of course, and a few other places) including the other branches of government and GOP (I’m not at all sure why) but he can’t understand this `tude from Pootie:
“Go away or I shall taunt you a second time!”

I’m sure they have guys like Obama in Russia, but surely none as simultaneously inept AND confident as our affirmative action product, Barry.
Watching him and Putin is a lot like watching the Generals play the Globetrotters, but it’s not funny, just embarrassing, something like the way the Russian Olympic hockey team must have felt in 1980 ... How are we losing to these guys?

Oh yeah, maybe because our coach’s nickname is “Zero.”
Please November 2016, arrive soon.

That is very nice of them, Russians are nothing if not considerate and honest. I am sure the Ukrainians are greatly relieved.

More likely that they will declare an Obama-like “No Fly Zone”, with means they can bomb anything they want to with impunity, and put boots on the ground as “Advisors”, or to lase targets, just like Obama did in Libya.

Putin already has a clear precedent to follow.

Hagel, like Kerry, is the biggest sucker the US has ever unleashed on the world. They both seem to have a “Kick Me” sign on their back everywhere they go.

Of course they won’t invade. They will merely respond to any aggressive force made against their troops.

Who is running the Pentagon these days? Oh yeah. upchuck and BO.

Of course they won't invade, they'll wait until their pro-Russian Separatist soften the terrain and then just openly infiltrate.
Russia is mastering the way to win a war with minimal casualties. Crimea was just a test.
We need to take lessons on illegals coming here. Once the borders are infiltrated you can't stop it until the borders are sealed.

There’s a political cartoon from back in the day with Chamberlain holding up a piece of paper with the words:

I’d think that if those elections don’t happen all bets are off. That inept government in Kiev has got to be voted out of power before they cause a world war.

Problem is, the government building keep changing hands between various groups. My feeling is there is going to be sufficient unrest for the Russians to claim they need to “stabilize” the region so “fair” elections can be held. When, is anyone’s guess.
