    Obama's economic retaliation might be a gut shot to Russia and severely damage their economy. However, we need to be prepared for Russia to respond to that militarily.
    Nice to see you acknowledge that economic pressure is considered an act of war.

    The USA has a sabotaging GOP, save Eric Cantor and his statement of support for the President. It was no accident Mr. Cantor was a statesman with Mr. Netanyahu in town. No Drama Obama will continue to guide us with a steady hand through all the minefields .

    How fast does Laura go from zero to bitch? What does that even mean. Have you ever thought about being an American before a republican? Or is that your ****ing speed?

    Obama has a multitude of ways to strangle Russia without firing a shot. Hope you aren't invested in the Russian stock market, it went down 12% today. A simple cut-off of rail, air, train and naval traffic would send a clear message. Freezing their overseas assets and suspending
    visas should happen toot sweet .

    Do you just show up to say stupid ****, or do you actually have something to say?

    And I would ask about your solution, what happens when Russia opens fire? Does Obama fire back and with what? Nukes?

    You see, there is no military solution. Britain rejected it on the week end, Canada yesterday, Poland the same day, for all those reasons. Trust me, the collective military intelligence of all of NATO, Poland, Ukraine, as well as the Pentagon and maybe even the Vatican has been over this, and if they aren't even talking about it, it is not Obama's to own.

    In retrospect, the decision to screw with Putin's head and mess with Ukraine was pretty damn stupid. He poked a big ugly stick into a giant wasp's nest with no way to deal with the wasps so now all he can do is avoid the stings
    Unfortunately, even 70 years after the fact these ****ers don't care what an act of war is, we're America, we're the badest, get the **** out of the way and shut up!
