If he wasn't ready to go hot, he should have never made threats to do so.
What'd Obama do? He shot his mouth off and while he was busy hiding behind Congress' skirts, Putin maneuvered a naval task force between our ships and Syria basically sayng, "do it! I double dawg dare ya!". At which time, Obama had to back down, allowing him to, "be clear", that he is a great big candy ass and can be easily intimidated.
So basically I'm seeing a bunch of American posters who are all gleeful that millions of people in the Ukraine might find themselves occupied by Russia against their will, while their country's autonomy is decimated and they are re-sucked back into the new USSR... all because it gives them yet another opportunity to bash Obama.
Not every ****ing thing in this world is defined by American partisanship, folks. There are real people in Ukraine, people who have been robbed blind by a corrupt president who they finally manage to drive out of office, only to discover that the Russians have dusted him off, invaded their country and potentially plan to reinstall him as Moscow's puppet back in Kiev once the country has been fully occupied. And all you neanderthal knuckledraggers can think of is, "herp-derp OBAMA yuk-yuk-yuk."
