All of this was going to happen no matter what Obama said or did. The question now is how far Putin pushes into Ukraine. I think if we would stay out of it he may stop. The more we demand he stops the more likely it is he will push further north of Crimea.

    I only agree that this is a logical consequence of years of international weakness. Had we remained vigorous, I doubt that Russia would be flexing these muscles now. We also need to be concerned about China looking to take back Taiwan. This admin would do nothing.

    Why aren't we selling our surplus, often obsolete arms to nations that need deterrent? We are sending MREs... really? It is too little too late. The election results are statistically impossible. Although Kim Jong-un might disagree...

    At last report the Ukrainians have given up the Crimea. They are withdrawing their forces. They are not willing to risk losing their Fort Sumter in battle.
