    Okay.

    "Now" is the result of the actions in the past.

    Let's hope the actions "now" are a little less short sighted and ill advised.

    We won't know, though, until the future reveals what the effects of those causes become.

    Sure it's a fake. CNN always goes out of their way to try to embarrass Obama.

    Obama is a bitch. He is weak. His words are more likely to inspire aggression than to dissuade. That's what happens when you act like a bitch.
    And you suffer from a severe case of ODS.

    Another Monday morning president. Imagine that.

    Read the article here: http://finance.yahoo.com/news/white-...214107060.html

    What Obama is telling Putin is that Article 5 of the NATO Treaty means that if it messes with the Baltic states or any other member of NATO it will be messing with NATO, including the USA.
    What is Obamy going to do bake him a cake?

    I don't need to be able to throw a touch down pass to recognize when another person also cannot throw a touchdown pass.

    Similarly, when the entire world is in flames and our Commander in Chief declares that he has no strategy to address it, that should be cause for concern.

    The opposition wonders why he's checked out to the golf course and is seemingly detached from his responsibility. His actions are doing nothing to counter the opposition claims. How's that flexibility that he promised Putin he would have been working out?

    Average income is down. World prestige is down. Taxes are up. Personal freedom is down. Border security no longer exists. The graduating generation is hopeless. The lower class that he's fighting for is less and less likely to ever rise.

    Every plan results in the opposite outcome from the one promised.

    What's wrong with this picture?

    You'll see when the time comes.

    Did you know that both Russia and the USA have thousands of nuclear-tipped ICBMs that can be on their way in a few moments?

    So that's your answer? Start lobbing ICBM's? No wonder the passive "No Nuke's" people rail against them, because of people like you...You're just itching to use them aren't you? Tell the truth.

    I'm just pointing out the main reason why someone in the USA, like President Obama for example, needs to keep a level head while so many people are eager for instant answers to every foreign crisis.

    Nukes give you almost instant answers, but who's going to clean up the world-wide nuclear mess after they incinerate and contaminate humanity?

His secret agencies are creating dissent and unrest within the country with the clear aim to gain back Ukraine as a pro-Russian state.

    What, precisely, is Obama telling him "not" to do?

    Considering Putins response to a US backed coup of the elected government of Ukraine is understandable, it seems dangerous to be pushing Russia around when they've got right on their side.

    Behind the U.S.-backed coup that ousted the democratically elected president of Ukraine are the economic interests of giant corporations – from Cargill to Chevron – which see the country as a potential “gold mine” of profits from agricultural and energy exploitation, reports JP Sottile.

    Despite the turmoil within Ukrainian politics after Yanukovych rejected a major trade deal with the European Union just seven weeks earlier, Cargill was confident enough about the future to fork over $200 million to buy a stake in Ukraine’s UkrLandFarming. According to Financial Times, UkrLandFarming is the world’s eighth-largest land cultivator and second biggest egg producer. And those aren’t the only eggs in Cargill’s increasingly-ample basket.
