    What would the USA gain by going to war with Russia over the Ukraine?

    No gains. Only more unnecessary deaths of U.S. Citizens. More unnecessary loss of treasure. More debt. More negative global opinions about the U.S. Yadda, yadda, yadda.

    Now if Obama and Putin wanna square off and duke it out on TV...I'd watch.

    Thats not the point. The point is that a weak leader who can be read like an open book opens a power vacuum that will be filled with less savory characters like China and Russia. It used to be that when POTUS spoke, nations listened-now they just ignore the US.

    Are you really under the impression that words were going to change Russia's mind regarding a major strategic asset? Do you people really think such decisions are affected by this high-school level tough-guy bull****?

    Maybe that's the problem. Conservatives just never emotionally graduated from high school.

    Begging?
    Do you expect to be taken seriously?

    They don't. They know it won't happen so they can safely say it should.

    Words with the ability to back them up are what matter in international diplomacy. With obama's soft talk and already-announced unwillingness to back anything up-whats left?

    Its amazing how slow the left is in learning these lessons that are demonstrated over and over again.

    Hence the Hungary invasion, Czechoslovakia, Korea, Vietnam, Bosnia, Chechnya, Georgia, Tibet, whatever.
    Give it up. The global supremacy of the USA President exists mostly in your dreams.
    Reagan did kick ass in Grenada, though.
