The sanctioning of individuals within Russia is a tell.
I wish Mr Obama would impose military sanctions.

No. It is the oligarchs they are speaking of. The bazillionaires. They just had interpol arrest one guy last week.
I wish Mr Obama would impose military sanctions. Instead Obama has once again shown himself to be weak. Generally I have a lot of time for him but with his "red line" debacle in relation to Syria and his unwillingness to provide Ukraine with any other help apart from financially he has become a laughing stock. Russia don't care about sanctions. They will care when someone starts fighting back.edit on 17-3-2014 by ProfessorT because: (no reason given)

Hm, thanks for the info, S&F.
Something's not right in this picture, though, but I can't tell what.
Putin has something up his sleeve, something isn't right.
Just a gut feeling.
WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama on Monday froze the U.S. assets of seven Russian officials, including top advisers to President Vladimir Putin, for their support of Crimea's vote to secede from Ukraine. The sanctions are the most comprehensive since the end of the Cold War.
