The US has no say in the Ukraine, nor should we. This is Russia's back door, and they do have serious interests there. It does not matter what the US says or threatens, Russia will do what it has to in order to save it's national interests.

The harder the US pushes, the harder Russia is guaranteed to push back...

Welcome to a rekindling of the cold war, brought to you by Obama and Putin.

It is a peeing contest that the US will lose.

We (the US) should stay out of it as much as possible.
This is not worth a re-ignition of the cold war.

You're kidding right? The cold war has been re-ignited for a while now. The only ones who don't know it are Obama and Kerry.

The problem is, we do have a say in the Ukraine, due to a treaty signed by Bill Clinton with them in 1994. They agreed to halt nuclear weapon development if the US and Britain would defend them if Russia invaded their borders.

Obama opened his mouth and said, "There will be costs" if Putin ventures into Ukraine. Obama threatened to not vacation there. Oh noes.

m.washingtonpost.com...

Putin called Obama's bluff, and went before his equivalent of the Russian Senate and asked for, and was granted, the use of military force.

www.cnn.com...

Now, does the treaty deem the US must stand up for Ukraine? Or, should we? Do we allow Putin to make Obama, and by default, the US look like a bunch of idiots?

opiniojuris.org...

Opinions are as mixed as the press reports coming out of the region. Some say yes, some say no.

In the meantime, Ukraine is begging us for help, and Obama is declaring Happy Hour, and planning military budget cuts.

Yes my little friend....Would you by chance know where the old maps are for civil defense shelters a rabbit and ewok may fit into, in a pinch? I really don't think 10,000 Degrees will do much for my beautiful white fur.

Just FYI, the Cold War never ended. Anyone who thinks it did doesn't understand what's been going on.

You've hit the nail on the head with your statement, but as you know, the oval office idiot likes sticking his snout in where its not wanted, he's trying to f#@k up your fine country, now he wants to cause problems with another. I don't see the point of reigniting the smoldering embers of the cold war fire, mainly because it would drag in, and put other countrys at risk, including mine. Im no peace loving hippy, but war for the sake of war is retarded. Its not my place to say, but im glad im not the only anti oval office idiot, he's not the ruler of my land but, everything he does ( apart from oval-office-idiot-care!) Has an affect that reaches out alot wider than the U.S.A. rant over!
BVH.

It is real,
it is happening.




Russia's upper house of parliament will ask President Vladimir Putin to recall Moscow's ambassador from the United States, the chamber's speaker said on Saturday.

Valentina Matviyenko, the head of the Federation Council, asked the Council's Committee on Foreign Affairs to draw up a proposal setting out the demands to Putin.

That would be very, very dangerous. You need clear lines of communication in cases like this. No mistakes can be made.

Based on the circumstances there is not much to discuss. The chat between Obama and Putin today reinforced that point when neither side could agree on anything. Russia is the one pushing for a recall of Ambassadors. Give it to them.

Ukraine is sovereign. Russia invaded and violated their sovereignty. They then violated their own agreements with Ukraine.

Allowing Russia to continue only increases the likelihood that this will be the catalyst of Russia reclaiming the former Soviet Republics.

Ukraine has a right to repel the invasion and has a right to request assistance in that.

Actually Ukraine has directly requested NATO to intervene to protect its territorial integrity. NATO has taken the request and will convene an emergency meeting of NATO on Sunday.

Ukraine Appeals to NATO for Assistance


KIEV, March 2 (RIA Novosti) – Ukraine appealed for assistance from NATO on Saturday, asking it to use all possible measures to ensure its territorial integrity and protect its people.

The call came hours after Russia’s parliament approved the deployment of military forces in Ukraine, in response to what Moscow claims is the threat being leveled against its servicemen and Russian citizens in the southern Crimea Peninsula.

Authorities in Ukraine have sounded the alarm over what they are calling an unwarranted act of aggression.

In addition to asking for NATO’s protection, Ukraine’s Foreign Minister Andrei Deshchitsa urged the trans-Atlantic military alliance to aid it in securing nuclear facilities based in Ukraine, local news agency UNN reported.

The North Atlantic Council, NATO’s main governing body, was to hold an extraordinary meeting on Sunday to discuss events in Ukraine, the military bloc’s secretary general, Anders Fogh Rasmussen, said on Twitter.

Russia has adopted increasingly combative rhetoric on Ukraine ever since an opposition movement in the country last week toppled President Viktor Yanukovych after weeks of sometimes violent protests.

Moscow accuses the West of backing the Ukrainian uprising, which it says has been directed by violent and politically extremist radicals.

On Saturday, Russian deputy Foreign Minister Grigory Karasin expressed the hope that the international community would apply pressure on Kiev to normalize the situation.


Ironic that Russia is now calling on other countries to press Kiev to normalize the situation. The only way to normalize it is for Russia to withdraw its invasion force and respect the territorial integrity of Ukraine.

What we need is a President Who Understands, World Situations can Change at any Moment.
We need a President That understands there is a reason for meeting about world events and crisis that are taking place.
Maybe he thought it was more important to Decide Which Nutrition Labels Michelle needed help understanding.


A White House official emailed some reporters to say that President Obama's team met today to discuss the ongoing situation on Ukraine. It appears President Obama did not attend.

"The President's national security team met today to receive an update on the situation in Ukraine and discuss potential policy options. We will provide further updates later this afternoon," reads the full statement.

Whats worse is he received a briefing about Russia-Ukraine from Susan Rice...

I am curious when the administration is going to announce the crisis in Ukraine is the result of a video floating around on the internet.

Then there is Vice President Biden, who spent some time in Arizona trying to get a Canadian citizen to sign up for Obamacare.
