    WHITE HOUSE TO PUTIN Don't 'Even Think About Messing Around' With The Baltics

    President Barack Obama's message to Russian president Vladimir Putin when traveling to Europe next week is to not "even think about messing around" with the Baltic states, the White House said Friday.

    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.

    Pfff. And what are we going to do?

    Obama couldn't intimidate a six year old girl, let alone a regional superpower. If I were Putin, I'd just laugh and keep right on doing what I was doing.

    With respect, a threat from Obama is like any other empty vessel.

    Echo and volume are pretty good, but there's nothing there.

    Putin might be shaking as a result. That's what people do when they laugh.
    I am not of the mind that a man is either of science or of religion. At his best and his worst, man exists in the misty glimmering where the falling angel meets the rising ape. That he chooses a direction from that point defines him as human.

    Obama would do nothing except give a blustering speech, maybe send weapons to neighboring states. But he would not engage russia in open conflict.

    Putin has obamas number. I cant recall a time in history when we appeared so insignificant.

    One, Mr. Putin is already "messing around" he annexed the Crimea in the largest military backed land grab since 1939. He has troops, tanks and missiles poised on the border and is arming pro-Russian rebels within the Ukraine itself. 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?

    What are they going to do? Talk to the UN about sanctions or something?
