    Maybe. It's certainly possible that he is indeed backing down. However, it's also possible that he is merely backing down only temporarily. Regrouping, so to speak.

    Interesting perspective. That comes off as you'd rather see your personal political opponents lose than see the right thing happen.

    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    I doubt that it is regrouping but you are correct to point out that sanctions are often not as cut and dry as "shock and awe". It is a lot less dangerous and costly though especially when dealing with a nuclear power. Putin is tucking in his tail and running for his life just the same. He was out played by Obama IMO.

    I should have said it was bad news to Putin fans which seems to comprise a lot of right wingers. Are you an admirer or not?

    Putin is a self serving egotistical tyrant that is a danger to the free world - so no - I am not a fan.
    Everything in your life is a reflection of a choice you have made. If you want a different result, don't blame someone else, or expect others to make a change, you should stop complaining and make a different choice. Remember, the circumstances of your birth don't determine the outcome of your life.

    Putin has ordered withdrawal from the Ukraine border at least twice prior to this. So far, NATO has not confirmed whether the troops have actually began to withdraw.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but those 17000 have never left Russian territory, never crossed the border, they were just located there. And now they are being withdrawn... from Russian territory to some other part of Russian territory. And everybody thinks it's good for Ukraine and that sanctions worked. Sanctions made Russia to move its troops via its territory.
    Cool story, bro.

    I believe you are wrong.

    Dude, what are you arguing? Well, if even the CNN wrote that were troops' training exercises and they have ended and THAT IS THE REASON to return to their bases, then what can we say? It is likely that this is truth

    Saw this coming, but I can't lie, Putin proved himself decently clever and made Obama look weak.
    Um, no, this made Obama look like a Chess player to Putin's checkers. Putin tried to be the big tough guy and it turned out he couldn't back it up. His country's position was far weaker than he tried to make it look. What would you have wanted Obama to do to "look tough?" Start a war with Russia over some tiny slice of land America doesn't give a **** about?

    Right. Putin would never lie. He is a saint.
