    That's very interesting - will also be interesting to see who, if any, honour their commitments.

    What would that "assistance" consist of if not troops or weapons? An Obama happy face tee shirt?

    Boy what a mess for ole Obama and Co. Will Hillary step up and say something? Will Russia yet again say suck it to Obama and the USA? Clearly this is the year of Putin, and Obama looks like a dolt. The boy can organize a fantastic community, and heck raise money, but man, this guy cannot lead and is in way over his head.

    Life is better with a little US-Russian Cold War.

    No kidding.

    Obama probably bought a board game of Risk to plot his strategy on this.

    In the Ukraine, a bunch of fire bombing, armed thugs took over the Democratically elected scumbag engineered by $5 billion USA dollars and CIA and NGOs infiltration. That, of course is interference and Russia, according to the agreement protects the Ukrainians. The thugs got Parliament to vote on many things absent the presence of the majority political party, and the same thing happened in the Crimea. Legerdemain will be reequired to portray that as OK in Kiev and really bad in Crimea. Count on th e"Mighty Wurlitzer" to make that happen and the morons won't even know unless I tell them. I think Putin is doing exactly the correct thing, for both Ukrainians and Russians because they are his neighbors. On a map it looks like they are thousands and thousands of miles away from the USA and none of our CIA's business.

    He'd have better luck playing Axis and Allies using the infantry push mechanic.

    There is a flip side to this issue, that complicates things. The leaders of the Ukraine reneged on an agreement with the EU that there would be free and fair elections. Some of the leaders are some of the same oligarchs that looted Ukraine's treasury, and they want power so they can keep the loot they robbed from the people. In that respect, they are not any different from the former government. Corruption runs rampant in all factions in the Ukraine.

    Seeing the bad boy sits on the Security Council the help would probably be very limited, indeed. But with the Europeans lined up behind them, the Ukrainian can become heros.
