    It's beginning to sound like control of the natural gas pipelines is the main issue for Russia.

    which probably means that will be the primary issue of negotiation.

    The fault lies directly with OBAMA and the current administration for lacking spine, guts, and balls. The Russians are walking all over them, and they do nothing about it.

    Obama is a spineless wimp. A wet fish. He is a failure as a president and this ordeal sealed that as fact forever.

    Although I'm not a great fan of Peggy Noonan, I did think her Op-Ed on the Ukraine hit some important notes:

    Peggy Noonan: Warnings From the Ukraine Crisis - WSJ.com

    The most obvious Ukraine point has to do with American foreign policy in the sixth year of the Obama era.

    Not being George W. Bush is not a foreign policy. Not invading countries is not a foreign policy. Wishing to demonstrate your sophistication by announcing you are unencumbered by the false historical narratives of the past is not a foreign policy. Assuming the world will be nice if we're not militarist is not a foreign policy.

    What is our foreign policy? Disliking global warming?
    Ehhh...the whole "not having a foreign policy" is just baloney. The fact is that for decades foreign policy by US Presidents was primarily how they reacted to the Soviet Union. Since the dissolution of the Soviet Union foreign policy isn't some unified approach to all things. Also...I much prefer Obama's foreign policy to a would be McCain's presidency.

    Based on his opposition to everything Obama we would of taken a "lead" on Libya. We would be supplying Syrian rebels with arms. We would of bombed Iran. I guess now we'd be at war with Russia? Yeah..I'll take "no foreign policy" over that.

    Yeah..nothing is a ballsy as spending tax payer money and others people's lives. Those Hawkish Presidents are real Rambos.

    Behind closed doors, yes. Publicly, it's more likely to be about ideology and the beating of war drums.
