    Shut down ALL Air Flight to all EU countries and North America.
    Blockade all entrances to Russian ports.
    Stop frieght and passenger rail traffic.
    Block all auto/truck traffic at their borders.

    Freeze all of their assets overseas.
    Round up all their Nationals overseas and send them on a slow train to Crimea .
    Blockade Russian ports? You do realize that that is a full blown act of war, right?

    that could be tricky. Those carriers would have to travel through the Dardanelles and the Bosphorus to get there. I wouldn't even contemplate it.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    Yet to Perotista, you said park a carrier in the Black Sea.
    Which is it with you, park a carrier or not ?

    And you are right, there isn't much Obama can do, his public protestations notwtithstanding, which makes it even more stange why he chose to unleash the CIA hounds in the first place.
    There is an old saying, be careful what you wish for, you might get it.

    This is why you begin by parking them at the entrance to the Aegean Sea.

    Yet House Intelligence Chair Rogers took the Navy off the table yesterday.

    So which is it with the GOP?
    How many voices does the GOP get to speak to Putin with, exacerbaing the problem ?

    There's a huge difference between deploying a task force to international waters and establishing a blockade, Nimby.

    Which means the agreement in 1993 that Russia signed is null and void.
    As long as war-mongers are talking tough while criticizing Obama, you can always count on me to talk tougher ande defend Obama.

    Now, stop all naval, train, air, road traffic and water if we're serious.
    Freeze assets, cut off gas and oil coming out--did I miss anything ?
