    I’m sure high level Russian officials have checking and savings accounts at your local Wells Fargo branch…………
    They must be shaking in their combat boots!

    Oh yeah, let us go to war with Russia. The only other nation on the earth with enough nukes to destroy all of mankind many times over. I lived through the entire cold war, and have absolutely no desire to do it again! A president that uses sanctions and common sense is just fine with me!!


    Besides which did anyone here of reasonable intelligence not know that Russia with three large military basses, and a plurality of some 80 percent Russians of the population, would not be the choice of the Crimea over the Ukraine? Even sanctions are at least somewhat inappropriate, unless Russia and Putin try to take over the rest of the Ukraine that does not wish to be a part of Russia. Could we please have just a little common sense and reason here instead of the constant hatred of our current president. Even when GW Bush started an inappropriate (and incredibly wasteful) war in Iraq there was not anywhere near the hatred exhibited towards him by liberals, as there is constantly against ANYTHING that president Obama does by the ultra conservatives on this site. Besides which, we posters here are powerless to do anything constructive anyway, so why not just wait and see?

    Lisa Benson would invade, I guess. Not Lisa Benson herself, of course, that’s silly, she’s a conservative. But other people’s children are expendable.

    Difficult to save the Crimea from the Russian menace when the Crimeans themselves don’t want to be saved. Strangely, George Bush’s Georgian policy might be the best – do nothing, except maybe some verbal expression of abhorrence. I don’t doubt there will be some consolidation and sorting out of states in the area. Do we in this part of the world want to be part of that struggle, recognizing there is really nothing meaningful we can do?

    3/18/14 under “World” on the above address,
    “Can Obama Rise to Carter’s Level”?
    by Michael Gerson in the Liberal Washington Post.
    -
    He uses the 1980 example of the USSR’s invasion of Afghanistan and the Carter administration’s responses as the model for Putin’s grabbing Crimea and threatening other ex-USSR lands, that are now “independent”…..and the solution is not “USA Invasion of Russia”! Very few Americans want a new war. But there are possible stronger reactions than Obama has shown todate.

    “Hey Russia, in 3 years after we drill here drill NOW! we will bury Europe in cheep oil and Natural gas.”

    I believe you are quite mistaken. The Bush administration, which even you must admit was cozy with Big Oil, determined that if we had started Drilling Here/Drilling Now, including ANWR, would not have much influence on the world oil market until at least 2035.

    I love the way our chickenhawks who didn’t even know where the Crimea is located until a few weeks ago, are now experts on the region, and want to start WW III because Russian speaking people may have more affinity for Russia than France, Germany and the EU..


    I don’t like Putin, but please tell me how WE have more reason and authority to invade Grenada, Afghanistan, Iraq, and Panama, than Putin has to defend the location of his Black Sea fleet, in the only warm water port their Navy has.

    You take what I post and turn it around some 180 degrees to match your own insane ideology. That is simply amazing!!

    I would realty expect a more intelligent and historically accurate response from you. The US did not even enter WWII for more than two years after the war had actually began in Europe. And then only after a direct attack upon the US by Japan, not Germany. So the events that led up to WWII for the US were not the same events that led up to WWII for such as Briton.


    Plus, what is happening in the Crimea is absolutely not a parallel as the ultra conservatives keep saying. But, I would guess that you may be at least somewhat correct about myself. As I stated, I have no wish to repeat the waste and stupidity that was the cold war all over again. If not wanting the US to continue to play at being the world’s policeman makes me a hated liberal isolationist, then I am glad to be a hated liberal isolationist! How long do yu think it would be that if we got militarily involved in such an area before the nukes started flying between the US and the Russian Federation, and how long after that would humanity on this pretty planet cease to exist. Would our non isolationism over an area that evidently wanted to be a part of the Russian Federation anyway, be worth that??


    President Obama is on the correct path here, and I can only hope that the ranting and ravings of the ultra conservatives will not sway him as it would have our last president!!
