While I believe Putin to be a KGB thug, I think he is right on securing the safety of ethnic Russians in the Crimea. It’s little different that when Reagan invaded Grenada to save a bunch of American kids that were attending cheap colleges. Imagine if Belize or Honduras suddenly went full commie while a bunch of expat Americans were there. We certainly would invade and protect Americans. This situation is no different.
Further, this is in Russia’s backyard.
What business is it of obama to tell Putin anything when after all the bloodshed that has been caused at his hand in the Mideast? Hypocrisy much?
No doubt Putin is shaking in his boots over obama’s stern warning “that this is against international law… and there will be a price to pay”.
That whole “flexible after the election” thing hasn’t worked out so good has it? Zero is a punk and Putin knows it.
America’s reputation as an honorable nation that defends freedom has been ruined by a Chicago street punk. The world is laughing at us. Rightfully so… we elected the asshat twice.
The problem is what will our petulant pretender do to boost his self-image and world street creds? So far everything that he has touched has turned to shit. We can recover our nation’s reputation when he’s finally gone. Hopefully he won’t get a bunch of our best and brightest killed in the meantime while attempting to look macho on the world stage.
