Skip to comments.Obama: Ukraine is toast so why should we help?
Posted on 05/05/2014 3:40:37 PM PDT by PoloSec
Eastern Ukraine may fall to the Russians, but hey, at least the Ukrainians will be well fed as theyre waving the surrender flags. Barack Obama will see to that! What they really need is help to save the sovereignty of their nation, but theyre not going to get it from the United States, not when our president is determined to avoide offending Vladimir Putin at all costs. This must be what that vaunted flexibility was all about! But he does have something for them:
Ukraine is desperately seeking Western military help, but so far the U.S. has refused. Earlier this week in Manila, President Obama tetchily addressed his Ukraine policy, saying, Well, what else should we be doing? He offered another rhetorical question: Do people actually think that somehow us sending some additional arms into Ukraine could potentially deter the Russian army?

Thank you for this post
Send more MREs the Russian army needs rations..../s
“Ukraine is desperately seeking Western military help, but so far the U.S. has refused.”
We must continue to refuse military help to Ukraine.
That's a relevant set of questions, so I'll offer an answer:
First, if you're not going to do anything, STFU.
Second, insist all NATO countries spend 4% of GDP on Defense or we are OUT in 10 years.
Third, pull US Troops out of Afghanistan, replace that worn out equipment and DARE NOT cut the US Military any further.
IS the author talking about these American military MREs now being sold online by the Western Ukrainian junta in Kiev?
Amen! Nothing that can happen in Ukraine will affect our national security. The country is a demographic mess even in good times, and I wish its people well. But Ukraine's quarrel with Russia is none of our business.
This guy is a complete and utter moron.
If people are looking to Obama to protect their sovereignty, well, don’t waste your time. He doesn’t even care about US sovereignty. In fact, he wants all borders gone to usher in the UN controlled world government. Ukraine has no good options. You get Obama/Merkel,and Islamists, or you get Putin.
Have a nice day!
Is that you Vlad?
“Do people actually think that somehow us sending some additional arms into Ukraine could potentially deter the Russian army?
No one could possibly be this stupid.
They aren’t muslims so King O’Bozo doesn’t really care what happens to them.
That’s a very good start.
I’ve seen dozens on this board that believe this.
Ask the Finns what a few rifles can do against the Russian Army.
Obama: “What treaty?”
Funny how you’re not upset that your tax money is paying for these MREs that the Western Ukrainian junta are selling online.
What other American supplies do you want Obama and Kerry to send the Western Ukrainian “leadership” to steal and sell online?
We could send them weapons just to make Putin pay a price for what he is doing; but our gutted, homosexualized, feminized military is not ready for a real fight with a real army.
Not eastern Ukrainians.
When the USSR collapsed and Ukraine be became independent, they should have read a history book and learned about the Russians desire to conquer their neighbors.
Ukraine failed to build up a military capable of fending off the Russians.
It was their failure and I will not spend my tax dollars or my son’s blood to pull them out of the grasp of the Russians.
The link that you sent me shows British MRE's.
Meal, Ready-To-Eat (MRE)
I see the same MRE’s on ebay being sold in this country.
The website from your link UNIMA sells US, French, British and Russian MRE’s.
The MRE’s that you show, you have no idea where they came from and there is no evidence that they came from our recent shipment to the Ukraine.
You sound like those liberals who defended the foreigner leaders and cronies who ripped off the American taxpayers by stealing and reselling our MRE’s and other food donations after Katrina and in Haiti and in Somalia, too. You can put your head in the sand if you want to, but keep your hands of my tax dollars.
I just gave you a thoughtful post and you give me nonsense.
You tell me there are MRE's showing up for sale from our recent aid to Ukraine.
I simply point out to you that there is no evidence that these MRE's are from the recent aid to Ukraine.
I never defended the theft of any MRE's.
Yet you give some nonsense that I did.
Ping me when you aren't regurgitating Putin propaganda.
Funny how youre not upset that your tax money is paying for these MREs that the Western Ukrainian junta are selling online.
Funny how your not upset that his magnificence Vova Putin is sending Chechen terrorists into his neighbors country to rape and pillage. You keep good company, FRiend.
Those MRE’s are also showing up on the battlefield. Surprised the Putinistas aren’t waving that bloody flag yet.
Not eastern Ukrainians.
So instead of Western aid the folks in E. Ukraine have been dreaming of the Chechen terrorist "tourists" that Vova Putin just sent on holiday there?
It was also so kind of Putin to lend them a few thousand unlawful combatants and agents who have bombed, kidnapped and murdered their neighbors.
Why would anybody ever want to lean Western when their friendly Russian neighbors bring such a fun party bag.
We shouldn’t, let the Russians kick the shit out of the obama sponsored terrorists that took over the government!
Didn’t we assure Ukraine of support and protection if they voluntarily disarmed?
