    Russian arms inspectors are scheduled to inspect US nuclear facilities this week in accordance with START. Obama should cancel the inspections until this issue is resolved in a satisfactory manner.

    I agree. It's a shame. I'd like to see a free Cuba. They'd like to see it, too.

    The USA should end all nuclear weapons reductions agreements and declare the treaty voided as was the treaty with Ukraine concerning their nuclear weapons reduction/elimination treaty.

    We should put a minimal number of USA troops - and if possible NATO troops) in the existing major Ukraine bases In Crimea. If Russia is going to attack American troops, it is Russia's war to start. Under International law, Crimea is still Ukraine, not Russian merely because Putin says it is.

    Put USA and if possible NATO troop in the rest of Ukraine, specifically on borders.

    Offer military alliance with former USSR Eastern and Southern block nations who are likely freaking out now. Upon such alliance, place a token number of USA and if possible NATO troops there. If Russia is going to attack American troops, that then is his decision.

    Put the Iron Curtain back up, only this time with all of Russia's former captured and occupied bloc countries on the other side of that wall. The collection of Eastern and Southern bloc nations, the USA and NATO astronomically outweighs Russia in population, economic might and military might.

    The result would be:

    1. The USA and NATO would be acting for the non-nuclear proliferation treaty with Ukraine - rather than the USA and NATO being damn liars and cowards.
    2. Putin would have run Russia back into the dark ages economically and would ultimately be removed by the powers of Russia.
    3. Russia would become a 2nd tier world power.
    4. The new leader of Russia would be begging US to "tear down that wall."

    If the USA/NATO played Putin's poker game - rather than being cowards despite holding an Ace high royal flush to Putin's 2 jacks- Putin would ridiculed worldwide for the hardship he brought on Russia and internally removed by Russian powers for screwing up so badly and costing them a fortune.

    The USA/NATO would again have something to offer in exchange for countries not developing nuclear weapons rather than the now urgency that they do so.
