    I do think Obama is slowing going in the right direction. Saw on various news sites that we are stepping up exercises with NATO, we've sent some military units to the baltic states, we're supporting Ukraine financially and no doubt in other ways. I think we can do more economically, politically, and militarily to deter him. The sanctions we placed on them so far are a joke, maybe it's just a delay tactic until we can coordinate deeper sanctions and economic retaliation. We should give Israel the green light to do whatever they want in Syria and Iran, with US support. We can send troops in to Poland and other baltic states not just for exercises.

    Whatever we do, we need to make it is substantial and sudden. Phasing things in will not work. It sucks, and it's brinksmanship, but it is necessary. Otherwise world order will break down and the effects of that will be incredibly damaging, and long lasting, not just for the US, but for every country. Putin has led us to this return to containment and brinksmanship.

    The best thing that Obama can do now, it is commit suicide. He is the worst president in the history of the country. Before other countries did not like America. But respected. Now we have no love and no respect. Our enemies are just laughing at us.
    We do not need to send troops to Ukraine. Ukraine is a big country with a large population and the army. All we need, to help Ukraine firearms and instructors. And in the event of hostilities, to cover them from the air.

    Forget the Ukraine, that's Europe's problem.

    Forget Cuba and cut Puerto Rico loose, we don't need the drag from either of them.

    Secure America's borders, deport all of the illegals and their dependents, focus on building our military back up to pre-Clinton levels of strength.

    Re: What should Prez Obama do about Crimea?

    As people continue to support or oppose Obama along partisan lines, there is a very different reality unfolding unrelated to any actual issues.

    President Obama, charismatic as he is, had exactly no leadership experience in his life - not in business, not with any organization, nor in politics. His advisors are idealistics, but also with no real world experience.

    You may entirely believe with the philosophies and ideology of President Obama. Many people have lofty ideals. But it is coming down to the raw question of competency to carry out any goals, programs or ideals to any workable form, and an apparent lose of what to do on foreign policy matters lacking both any experience or knowledge himself, nor does his staff.

    This is not only becoming a national and worldwide embarrassment to our county, it is increasingly causing real harms domestically and real dangers internationally. Where he previously was praised throughout the world and this nation for his lofty idealistic speeches, he is becoming seen as incompetent, indecisive and weak both at home and aboard by both the populous and foreign leaders.

    The president is the leader of what still hangs on as the wealthiest country on earth and is commander of the unquestionable most powerful military on earth. Yet he is being openly ridiculed by world leaders.
