    Bush was never a strong leader, but he was a LIAR, since certain righties still want to politicize foreign affairs. His comments to "bring it on" energized one billion Muslims and the USA continues to have to deal with this disaster, just one of so many left by Bush/Cheney

    Russia warns West it may change stance on Iran, in retaliation over sanctions

    Russia reportedly is prepared to change its stand on Iran nuclear talks in a high-stakes gamble to counter expanded sanctions by the United States and the European Union over Crimea.

    After the Obama administration on Monday hit 11 Russian and Ukrainian officials with sanctions -- a move criticized by Republican lawmakers as too timid -- Russia's Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov was quoted Wednesday by the Interfax news agency as saying the country may have to alter its position on the negotiations over Iran's nuclear program.

    The statement is the most serious threat of retaliation by Moscow since the disputed Crimea region voted to join Russia over the weekend, and Vladimir Putin's government moved to annex the peninsula.

    NATO and U.S. leaders say they're prepared to do more.

    Speaking at the Brookings Institution in Washington, D.C., he also said NATO, as a first step, is suspending joint planning for operations removing chemical weapons from Syria.

    Ukraine's security chief also announced Wednesday that his country will hold joint military exercises with the United States and Britain

    The United Nations is also deploying a 34-member human rights monitoring mission to Ukraine, scheduled to be in place by Friday. Ivan Simonovic, assistant secretary-general for human rights, expressed particular concern over the security of Tatars and other ethnic minorities in Crimea.

    A letter sent by Sen. Dick Durbin, an Illinois Democrat, Arizona Republican Sen. John McCain, and six other lawmakers says monitors are needed to defuse tensions in Ukraine after Russia's takeover of the Crimean peninsula. The lawmakers visited Ukraine last week and say Russia is using "provocateurs and intelligence agents to brazenly stir trouble" in eastern Ukraine as a possible "manipulated pretext for additional military action.".....snip~

    Mr Yatsenyuk said this was a "historic day", adding: "We want to be a part of the big European family and this is the first tremendous step in order to achieve for Ukraine its ultimate goal, as a full-fledged member."
    He added that "the best way to contain Russia is to impose real economic leverage

    The most sensitive issue of trade integration with the EU is as yet unsigned.
    But in its Conclusions on Ukraine, published on Friday, the EU said it was committed to signing the remainder.
    The EU also said it would push ahead with similar cooperation deals with two former Soviet republics - Georgia and Moldova - in the summer

    sorry MMC ( and good morning), I might be wrong on the term - whatever that trade orbit is that is a counter to the EU. I can't find the term.

    Well.....I think Putin is aware that they are trying to work out those trade deals with Georgia and Moldova. Plus I am sure he see what they are doing as a means to try and impose economic leverage on Russia. I had mentioned to another.....what if Putin starts his own group, with those around him?
