    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.

    So you’re an Isolationist. Watch Blitz Wolf, and how that attitude almost cost the US WWII. Every reputable historian, both Republican and Democratic, writes that Japan and Germany were extremely close to dividing the US the way Germany and the USSR divided Poland, and only the Grace of God spared the US from the fate it so richly deserved from practising Isolationism instead of attacking Germany and Japan prophylacticly in ’32, when victory would have been cheap and easy.

    Hey Russia, in 3 years after we drill here drill NOW! we will bury Europe in cheep oil and Natural gas. You want to keep Crimea? Fine fine fine, but You know we have more here in the USA and North America then you do. We also have the best, most experience, brightest in the world once we start, there is no stopping and we the USA will be able to tell Europe, who needs Russia.
    Oh wait Obama wants to stop the seas from rising, for the good of the world, by crippling the USA energy out put. Must wrestle the demon CO2. So says the green weenies. Our gas needs to be 5$ a gallon for our own good. Why we can not even burn coal here without the EPA bankrupting things.
    I wonder if we can threaten Russia with Magic Green jobs? I mean it worked on bankrupting Detroit.

    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.

    @Overtaxed

    You are close. But I do not see putting any boots on the ground. But is it not to bad that we had all this disarmament. We don’t have a missile shield defense. We disarmed a lot of natives over there so that they would love us.
    I don’t think bring aircraft carries and making a threat would do much. BUUUUT Let us ask Europe. What are YOU doing about this? Are you going to take this when they move again? You know we have some good technology. We need some practice in and testing grounds. You want to run some war games with us? This way our troops are with in spitting distance of where Putin might go next. Of course Obama did not know what a VP candidate knew, Putin will go into the Ukraine. We were caught off guard in Georgia, that is true. But we manged to scrape together rescue missions. We stopped the bleeding and Russia went no farther. They did not take all they wanted. But that did signal Russia as a GEOPOLITICAL problem. But Obama, Kerry, Hillary? They can not read history. They were caught off guard yet again. We knew during the Olympics of the troop movements. THAT was the time to move some of our assets around. Before it could have been a reactionary movement. It would have been a “normal” movement. Then maybe Putin might have thought twice. But Putin has been playing us a FOOL every since Kerry’s foot in mouth that helped lift Putin’s standing in the world and bolder his resolve.

    @1opinion

    And if you knew history that was not his intent. It also allowed Germany to gain and become almost to big to take down. The Churchill had to fight tooth and nail to get what was necessary, that Chamberlain, Carter, and Obama are nothing but buts of jokes on the world stage. They are one in the same who made the same mistake just different ways. Chamberlain, coward, Carter to naive and well meaning but a joke, Obama an idiot who can not understand why he can not have followers outside of the USA. They might have called G.W. a cowboy but GW had respect. Obama is nothing but a JOKE who has snubbed our allies and apologized to our enemy’s then demands respect for the office he LIED to attain.

    @Adrian Snare when we marched into Iraq…. ???"

    We went there we had permission from the world. We had most of the free world, industrial world on our side. GW Bush manged to get get the world to see the problem and we went in and took care of it.
    Which begs the question, why are we still Die-ing in Afghanistan? Obama followed GW bushes plans to draw down. But then doubled down in the poppy fields? We are still there. only 500 died there under GW and the plan was to move out. Now over 2,000 are dead under Obama and the solderers still have no clue why we are there? What is our mission there.
    And at least GW got the world to sanction our going into Iraq. The last time Obama asked for help France was the only one to step up in a minor way. FRANCE!!!

    “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 Play One On TV

    Sorry, but a few States on private ground prove you wrong, I have seen estimates of 3-5 years we would have enough to flood the market. You want to hit Putin were it hurts? Take the market from him.

    You are wrong in so many ways."
    Prove it! A VP candidate was more “right” then Obama. Mitt knew the score. But you liberals just laughed, hey did you see that Sat. night skit? ha ha ha I can see it from my house.. Obama really stuck it to Mitt. the 80’s called ha ha ha Rocky 4 and a Reset button. Oh so funny from those clueless R’s.
