    Yet it was the POTUSA in 2001, GWB, who spoke glowingly of V. Putin during their first meeting, after "looking in his eyes".
    Still doesn't answer the questions about what you have proposed.

    And also yes, Bush seemed to have great respect for Putin. From what I could tell it flowed both ways. Unlike Obama whom he mastered in their very first meeting and every exchange thereafter.

    Obama threatens to

    Maybe I'm wrong, but I think the time for warnings is over. The article says they are considering what steps to take. Why don't they already KNOW what steps to take? Why are no contingency plans for this in place already? If our intelligence didn't see this coming? Why not?

    I blame our intelligence community. We spend billions​ of dollars to get a heads up on this type action. What happened?
    Sorry, but the answer lies squarely with Obama. He is the Commander in Chief.

    As for economic sanctions against Russia, that is not going to happen, the EU is dependent on Russia's trade as is the US. If we impose economic sanctions alone it will hurt us as much as them...

    Oh my goodness, if criticising the government is anti-American, then just about everybody here is.

    Would you be implying that V. Putin was forced into his action ?

    Yet I specifically have heard and read House Intelligence Chairman, a RBFD named Rogers, say that moving our Navy is 'OFF THE TABLE'.
    Just FACTS, not HATE that you accuse ...
    Except, the blockade isn't a GOP proposal, it's what YOU proposed, right here in this thread. And that would not blockade Russian goods in or out as you suggested. You also suggested sanctions, which again I asked, how you would go about such things.

    Oh, the Pentagon could probably do it themselves. That wasn't my point. Taking on Russia would be nothing like taking on Iraq or Libya, and I'm sure the Pentagon realises that and is reason for their comments that you pointed out.

    Obama told them after the election he would have more flexibility, now he gives them everything they want. Obama goes out and makes a peep now and them but no one is listening.

    Post #115 with two Southern Naval blockades.
    If you want more of a war footing, blockade the Eastern water near Japan and to the West of Ukraine as far North as possible.
    Know where every single Navy vessel is for every possible Nation.

    Start looking at blocking all train traffic into Nato countries, as well as ALL vehicular traffic.
    Follow up with shutting down all gas lines and oil pipes, as well as cutting off water flowing from NATO countries.
    There's plenty more if you really want to show the war-hawks how bad you are.

    Meanwhile, Russia's stock market actually lost 10% of its value today on Monday March 3rd.
    How many more days do you V. Putin can take that, without amping up further, or looking for a deal ?

    No, I'm saying that his action is a response to a crisis.
