    Personally, I prefer President Regain's approach to the problem.

    Regain, WWII...yeah, I totally get the analogy. Regain's approach to WWII was great.

    So you're saying this is the start of WWIII? Then it doesnt matter, we are all dead.

    That may be true, I did not see that, but then I have been living on a beach most of the summer, sometimes even sleeping indoors. Being in the middle of a large city without radio, TV or internet, opens doors within doors.


    I do follow the Canadian and European news however, and throughout this crisis, this area has been besieged with the story, ISIS barely on the radar. Without specifics to recall, the general scenario I see is that waaay back, somewhere in Obama's first term, the US through the CIA became active in Ukraine. That activity was driven by many varied corporate interests, some including Canadian owned companies, one of whom was years ago investigated by US Justice Department for selling technology to Russian companies.

    It is only becoming clear now how much the Sochi games distracted Putin, and as the "west" pressure escalated his lack of response empowered them. Note how Putin waited until after the Olympics to act,but when he did he went full throttle, the first land grab since Stalin. [I opined to a journalist friend of mine that Putin was driven by having been so badly beaten by Canada at the games, losing what he said would be a "national disaster", the men's hockey gold to Canada a western country one seventh its size. My colleague suggested I might be very right.]

    Both the US and Canada are caught with business interests at risk; here we say, good luck and hurry home while you still can....while in the US this test of manhood is matched by an equal testosterone based demand for "action"; as we stand, my daily newspaper says Putin is giving the finger to the west as he celebrates and brags of his nuclear arsenal.

    But in the end, what "action" beyond these so severe sanctions has the west?

    ANYWAY, you don't go to war with Russia, so it's not war time diplomacy. Unless millions of people dying is "your thing."
    First of all I apologize for using the President's initials. As you can see, I'm new here. That was only my tenth post on this forum. I saw others using BHO when referring to Berry Soetoro, oops, I mean Barack Obama so I thought it was appropriate. Now that I know that you are embarrassed by the middle name, chosen by the President himself, I will refrain from using it. After all I really do care what you think.

    ANYWAY, the best way to avoid a fight with Russia is to let them know that you are serious and will not be pushed around and that it will cost them dearly if they try.

    You seem like an intelligent person, ever study history?

    Barrack Obama picked his own middle name?

    No, I hate academics/intellectuals/intellect. I have more than 10 posts, and you would know that if you read them all, so have at it.

    Let's nuke 'em. Can't think of a better way to let them know we are serious. If Obama wasn't such a Muslim he would have already done it. I'm so embarrassed to have a black president.

    EDIT: Apparently, this is necessary. /sarcasm

    Cute... For the record, I did not infer that this is the start of WW III. Those are your words. Not mine.

    My reference was to the isolationist position of the US leading up to and during the first several years of the war. The "head in the sand" approach doesn't work in the long run.

    Nor does the "it doesnt matter, we are all dead" argument.

    Millions died before we fully engaged during WW II. Are you suggesting that approach now? Or should we make our defensive intentions known a head of time?

    By the way, since this thread is about The Baltic's, are you suggesting that we not honor our commitment to NATO and our other defense treaty obligations in Europe?

    History shows us that we are living on a very small planet.
    Wake Up America!

    Wasn't Reagan the president that turned tail and ran after the marine barracks were bombed in Beruit? You know the one who Bin Laden said he got the idea on how the Americans could be beat? That president?

    Btw the words of a speech writer attributed to a president don't mean squat to me. Reagan could only wish to have the integrety Obama does.
