    Too damn bad. Maybe he should consider behaving like a civilized leader instead of a bully.

    Putin is certainly playing him well with this Ukrainian business. It seems to me like current US foreign policy is more geared to provoking China into an arms race with it rather than addressing real issues.

    This business with Russia has the potential to get right out of hand and perhaps fracture the NATO alliance altogether if its resolve gets tested in the Baltics. We have taken our eye off the ball here by appeasing a despot and historically that sort of thing never ends well.

    Thats absolutely true. I think Putin realizes he has a window here, the next two years before the 2016 presidential elections-to make whatever moves he's going to make. Nato needs a strong leader, it does not have that in Obama.

    Pretty pictures, flying the Stars & Stripes.

    If Russia were doing that in Mexico or Cuba, would we be apoplectic?

    So what do you propose be done other than complaining about Obama?

    ISIS/L? We have something for them and it's coming soon, if need be US troops will take command of Iraqi's to help them get their balls back.

    20 thousand + force destined for Mosul and air power not from the US but from Jordan, Egypt, and Syria.

    We need a potus who can lead, get europe together (as best as possible), move military forces to the area. Call out Putin directly and let him and Russia know that this wont be tolerated (they think we imposed sanctions just to be mean). Commit to our allies and provide the highest tech weapons. Continue with the economic side.

    Basically nothing that will work with Obama in power.

    Heres where you say it wont work despite the limp wristed tactics of our POTUS already failing.
