    News Flash: There were no sanctions over Georgia when Bush was president. Several countries threatened Russia with sanctions but none delivered. Bush and Cheney didn't do squat except run their mouths.

    Conversely with our present president, in the case of the Ukraine, the U.S did not waste time with sanctions. Obama signed an executive order only a few days after his first warning. Sanctions are going forward! And they will hurt Russia and Russian's stock market is already fearing the future. The Crimea is history for Ukraine but at least Putin may think twice about invading the rest of the Ukraine.
    This may shock you, but George Bush had his own problems. He as well as europe should have been more forceful towards Russia during the Georgian invasion. But he wasn't-of course he was busy fighting and in the winding down of the successful troop surge that Obama opposed at that time.

    The fact that Obama is a weak leader is why Russia is comfortable doing as it pleases.

    You have precisely missed the point, Bush wasn't saying he "didn't care", he said (very clearly) that the war was about much more than one man, and that OBL had been marginalized. Please try to read up on these things before you comment, otherwise people might think you are a bit of a daydream johnny.

    Which brings up the question of how many wars have been fought to prove one leader or the other had balls, but then, that's another issue.
    You are absolutely incorrect about this.

No, not at all.
    We were using them in Ukraine. Russia downed the drone IN UKRAINE. Please read the op.

    Sanctions, however, is about the only practical / appropriate tool in the toolbag. Do you have another idea?
    This is a diplomatic incident. Russia attacking our military over another country. This action has very specific meaning, and Putin knows it.

    As for me, I don't give two ****s about Crimea. I don't want Obama to 'be tough' about it. Yeah, do some sanctions, but let the Europeans lead. Its their back yard, we will follow and support them. If they want to go to war, maybe we can assist some. Now, call me a pussy if you want, but good god give the OBAMA OBAMA OBAMA thing a rest. You are so transparent it is pathetic.
    Im inclined to let europe take care of itself, perhaps they would enjoy being putins dinner.

    That is not what I said. I said let Europe take care of Ukraine. That is quite a different thing. Trying to twist what people actually have said is an admission that you have nothing of worth the say for yourself. You are really not that clever.
    You can never be safe from a government that can keep you completely safe from each other and the world. You must choose.

    Your view is a bit dated, and if there is any part of that link you dispute, heres where you put up. I wont hold my breath.
    I guess you went the DO route. Or maybe had to go to the Caribbean.

    I think the spirit of my comment still stands. The US has been protecting the west for far too long, with very little in return. Instead of spending on a military, they have hid behind America's. I think some time dealing with Putin alone (as well as any other threats) might allow for some reflection. Europe needs us more than we need it.
