It is preposterous now that both the White House and the US military seemed shocked by the re-action; Putin warned Bush he would "tear her apart" if the Us messed with Ukaine, and now he has. What is so shocking to everyone about that? Or did Obamaland buy it's own hype that Obama had a clue.
Now we have a general responsible for the security of the whole nation seemingly shocked, shocked I tell you, that Russian war planes would dare challenge the skies in other areas; not send a signal that said "Mr. Obama, the Kremlin is serious. We want our country back...stay out of it."
The White House seemed to think Putin would close the Olympics without his cherished gold medal in men's hockey and ignore the "regime change" on his doorstep.
One again, arrogance, only this time it brought us to the brink of all out warfare.
