    Let's see how tough he is when his economy tanks and his people start to bulk.
    He might just threaten to use nukes before that happens. Who do you think will blink first, Obama or Putin?

    Right. We've already seen that Obama's threats (toward foreign countries) don't add up to a hill of beans.

    Attacking Iran directly, whilst Russia, and China are engaged with other priorities. THAT'S what leaders do.. They have contingencies.

    Obama.. Not so much. First he hears about world matters from the media, then he sits and waits, and waits, and dithers some more, and then waits, and then waits.. Dithering even more, and then waits... You get the idea. We can't engage Russia directly, but then again, we already knew that, so then what to do? How do we win without engaging Russia and China. Oh I know, we have another problem in Iran, and boy when we look at the operational consequences, we see a whole lot of win in that strategy. It shows Russia, and China, we're not foolin either tough guys, and it will cause them to pause, in the meantime we take care of a nuclear hungry Iran.

    You're welcome!

    You are right. He cannot be honestly suggesting that as his comments were about what would happen if someone attacked Russia itself.

    Listen to his comments, nobody has threatned to attack Russia. At the end of the day, leaders of truly strong nations rarely - if ever, have to remind their people that they are truly strong. The people already know that.

    I am beginning to suspect that the Russian giant, though undoubtably fearsome on the defensive, has feet of clay:

    - Russia has already relaxed boycott of some food products (Giant cant feed itself)
    - Russia turns to China to finance bridge to Crimea (Giant has limited amounts of extra cash, even for national priorities)

    Now, new sanctions are going to make things even harder for the giant- and the west can take the pain longer.

    Furthermore, Russian generals have purportedly advised Putin that invading and controlling even two provinces, let alone the rest of Ukraine, would invovle large numbers of conscripts and assosciated difficulties. Bad news is that Putin maybe as unwilling to listen to his generals as Bush was to his.

    For get about ISIS, I/P, Ebola, Ferguson and worry about slipping into an escalating conflict with a nuclear super power, or not.
    Putin is an idiot if he thinks he's going to light off a nuke, and live.

    Who was President? That would be the one who helped make sure history referred to the conflict as the "Five Day War". What was him name again?

    Re: Don't mess with nuclear Russia, Putin says

    Almost certainly, Putin was repeating existing nuclear weapons doctrine but in a simplified fashion concerning his audience. He also wanted to remind his audience that Russia is secure from such attack, because its nuclear arsenal is a deterrent. If Russia were invaded and were facing a real prospect of defeat, it would use all weapons in its arsenal to try to stave off that outcome. There is virtually no prospect that a war limited to Ukraine would lead to a nuclear exchange. In short, I don't believe his remarks represent any meaningful changes in Russia's existing foreign policy and security posture or new threats toward NATO.

    It is just comical that they actually believe this.
