    Soft power projection into Ukraine, by western forces, and severe economic sanctions. Help to facilitate alternative sources of gas from the west. Let Russia be ostracized for some time.

    If Putin wants to play mini-Stalin, let him learn the hard way.

    Appeasement emboldens the aggressor. Welcome to the world.

    Soft power projection?

    What's that, a pillow fight?

    Economic sanctions are working. We need to keep them up.

    Examples of soft power projection include:
    Securing sea lanes of communication: the protection of shipping lanes from attack by hostile states or irregular threats.
    Non-combatant evacuation operations: the evacuation of citizens or friendly third-country civilians from a foreign country when they are endangered by war or civil unrest.
    Humanitarian response: the use of military forces abroad to assist in the aftermath of a natural disaster.
    Peacekeeping: military operations designed to support diplomatic efforts to reach a long-term political settlement to an ongoing dispute.

    Everything up to a military presence in Ukraine (ours and other NATO members) to make it clear this aggressive behavior wont be tolerated.
    Sadly, that should have been done some time ago, and we have a weak POTUS. A leader would have lead, not Obama. Putin can read him like an open book.
