    Except thankfully, the UK backed out of that, the UN denied the US the job of heavy lifting in Syria, and 70% of Americans disagree with you.
    Killing one person is murder, killing 100,000 is foreign policy

    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?
    That's a joke.

    Since when did Russia ever need the US in the past 70 years?

    Obama is a really ignorant person if he thinks idle threats of "isolation" will intimidate Russia, especially with China (and every communist nation) in their back pockets.

    Again, you are unable to provide links. Your opinion is no substitute for facts.

    Putin has probably had contingency plans for any western response.

    And the killing will go on; the area will remain a center of human rights violations until it gets so bad no-one can act like it's not their responsibility to do something.

    By the way, most Americans felt like you do before WWI and WWII got to the point we couldn't ignore them anymore.

    Shut up, Barack. Idiot.
    I believe Putin is very worried about these threats...

    If he is worried, it isn't causing him to pull back from Crimea.

Good, bad, or indifferent, which other country is first and most in the news globally looking for our reaction to most global issues, which country is first on the list when "freedom fighters" want financial and logistic support, which country is first on the list when a country needs humanitarian aid after a disaster???

    This idea that we are reducing ourselves hopefully is true, because we could be reduced 10fold or more and still be more relevant than any other country. Stop with the trying to put shame on it. The real shame is the fact that our military spending is more than the next 13 countries combined. Then because we don't, what?, start a war over Crimea, some whiny citizens bemoan our weakness.
    You bolded "We are gradually reducing ourselves to irrelevancy in any significant manner" and then ignored it. The key word is gradually..

    Or hand over Snowden, or stop rearming Syria, or from supporting Iranian armament, or...
