    All seemed peaceful in Chechnya too then somehow 200,000 people ended up dead.

    Do you agree with Pukin that no Russians are in Crimea?
    How far are you willing to go to defend our enemies ?
    Not defending our enemies, Russia or Putin. Thought I made that clear to you long ago in the thread. I'm criticising our President's response which has been inept. See American's post #317. Empty and unrealistic threats aren't going to work.

    Which is why Putin is backing off today, after watching the ruble hit record lows yesterday along with a 10% drop in their stock market .

    Putin is de-escalating as our stock market is going straight up.

    Our son's and daughters haven't spilled any of their blood half way across the globe in the Ukraine.

    Win-Win!

    Good thing Obama doesn't listen to his war-mongering hater's. Those guys never seem to learn.

    Seems to me they are working just fine.

    After he got what he wanted and a whole lot of Russian stock market players made a whole lot of money. You know, the stock market players make bank when the market rises or falls. They make huge bank when the swing is large.

    Thing is the VALUE of the market hasn't moved an inch.

    Russia is allowed by treaty to have their port in Crimea until 2045.

    Ok, I mean if your predicting that this action means Putins on an imperialist march, we'll just have to wait and see.
    Killing one person is murder, killing 100,000 is foreign policy

    I think Obama could learn something from the Clinton years......don't get involved unless you plan to take decisive action, action you're willing to back up with muscle. If you don't think you can do that, stay the hell out of it. You're going to lose the confrontation anyway, and look like a fool doing it. I'm thinking Obama should probably stop at condemning the actions of Russia, because anything else like sanctions or saber-rattling toward a country like Russian don't mean much.
    Really? I suppose when Russia withdraws with little to show for it, you will not credit the President. I'm pretty sure you will praise Putin for his "restraint" instead. You righties have nothing but praise for that KGB thug. He must be your kind of people.
