Wheres the A10s?wheres the Davey Crockett missiles ?Wheres Obamas guts....?
Time to dance and hes playing golf....goes to show whos running things and it aint the president that's for sure....
well, he isn't playing golf now, and the US isn't going to send in A-10's or missiles, without an invitation from the Ukrainian government and/or U.S. congressional approval. and whatever the USA is secretly doing, they are not going to send you a letter explaining what it is. and as far as guts, why don't you go over there, pick up a rifle, and show what guts you have.
For the first time, the Russian president directly addressed to the separatists. Vladimir Putin praised the efforts of the pro-Russian forces in Eastern Ukraine.
Putin talks about 'great successes for the militias' in the area and against the "mortal danger of Ukrainian troops against the civilian population," writes the German weekly Der Spiegel on their website. Remarkable is that he`s not citing the representatives of the "people's republics" Donetsk and Lugansk, but talks about the insurgents in "New Russia".
In the same statement, Putin asks the separatists to open a humanitarian corridor so besieged Ukrainian government troops can withdraw.
The United States is considering a number of options in response to Russian involvement in eastern Ukraine and believes increasing sanctions are the "most effective tool", U.S. State Department spokeswoman Jean Osaki said.
German Chancellor Angela Merkel said an EU summit at the weekend would discuss the possibility of further sanctions.
Ukraine's prime minister has said he will ask parliament to put the country on a path towards Nato membership.
Arseny Yatsenyuk said the government was sending a bill to MPs urging that Ukraine's non-bloc status be cancelled.
The remarks come as Nato holds an emergency meeting to discuss the crisis in eastern Ukraine.
