    If I were a betting man I'd say Russia. The U.S. sanctioning their wealthy billionaires will have a far deeper economic impact on the Russian economy than their sanctioning our wealthy Congressmen. The source of our wealth rest with wealth creators who reside outside the DC beltway. Theirs rest within the Kremlin.
    Congrats on your birth yesterday.

    You can't sanction Russian billionaires--they're cash is stashed safely away in multiple financial havens and are connected up the ranks w/Solntsevskaya Bratva, which can take out any high-level pol and/or their families faster than you can eat your Cheerios. And it's irrational to believe that billionaires will have all their cash invested in one basket, as opposed to it being distributed globally.

    They also have many of their operations carried out by holding companies which can't easily be traced directly to them.

    Setting aside this appears to be a done-deal before it happened with the West and USA, Putin realizes that Obama doesn't know how to play poker.

    Regardless of how you see this incident, anyone else concerned at how weak and incompetent our President looks to the world. Do something or do nothing, but don't look and act like a castrated gelding!

    Most of the world is laughing at how stupid and gullible America's right wing is for believing that Obama actually cared about this latest media craze as opposed to merely feeding the right bull!@#$ to keep them quiet.

    The petty little pissant is no longer Pres, fortunately.

    There are no freely elected and acting Senators in the US. They're all owned by Rex Tillerson, and right now, Putin has Tillerson by the balls, so. . .

    Crimea is worth over a trillion dollars in oil, gas and natural resources. They don't give a **** about Obama's faux sanctions. If you just gained ownership of all of Alaska's oil would you give a damn if your bank account was frozen in exchange?


    Which you pick? Your bank account you have now - or all of Alaska?

    You people are ignoring the fact that the citizens of Crimea wants Russia there. Doesn't the will of the people mean anything anymore?
    Islam is an antiquated religion and needs to either modernize with the times or be completely eradicated.
    There are two types of Muslims, terrorists, and their enablers. They need to fix that if they want to be part of civilized society.

    Part of this problem, is Obama engaging in a game of chicken with Putin. A game which our weak leader will lose.

    That is most definitely Obama's fault in your book.
    As with the Malaysian plane, right ?

    Obviously not all of them......No that's not Obama's fault. Obama wasn't an even a notion of becoming a possibility of being a fleshy bag of water within Creation's thought processes when those EU countries all started having problems. But surely you should know this.....considering you said you were a teacher.

    Did all the Media confuse you when they came out and reported that France said they can't accept what Putin is doing and they stand with the Election that took place last MAY. Which means the French is validating Yanokovich as the Legitimate ruling government of the Ukraine.

    Now if we go with your interpretation of things. This would mean France and Russia are on the same side and France would be supporting Putin and Russia. So we will let you spin that round for everyone.
