I think we should do nothing.

Do not speak in specifics or generality.

Just keep out of it.

But if the President does have to do something, send over a group of diplomats to try and resolve the issue as peacefully as possible.

And make sure that the diplomats are gay - that way, we rub Putin's face in it and make sure that the most important issue in the world is resolved.

CanisNoir: Two different times, and two different power structures in Europe. The US is no longer a the solitary giant straddling the globe and this particular brawl is between Russia and the European Union. I don't know why so many people are bagging on President Obama; there's really very little aside from Saber rattling, suggestions and threatening trade embargos that he can do. The European Union needs to lead on this one and I think Putin is reacting more because of his impression on what *they* will do, not so much what Obama will do.

I disagree with most, if not all of Obama's domestic policies, but aside from a few mis-steps here and there, I have to say, he's done well on the foriegn policy front.

We do have a vested interest in this, but only so much as America has always had a vested interest in Eastern Europe and the balance of power accross the pond. I'm curious to see Europes reaction now that International Forces have been offered to protect Ukrainian Russians and Putin said no thanks; that's the more telling signal than the fact that Russian troops crossed the border.

Subby, and for that matter, most of the US and US news outlets don't seem to realize that Russia did not in fact invade the Crimea, it's hard to invade something when, you know, your military has been there for almost 100 years or so. The treaties between Russia and Ukraine actually allow for free movement of Russian forces within the Crimean peninsula, legally, these guys are just out taking a stroll and loitering until they forcibly wrest control of something from the Ukrainian gov't, which they haven't. Pro-Russian Ukrainians haven't resisted, shots haven't been fired, they're essentially "occupying" the space by loitering.

Now, where things will get interesting is if they move OUT of the Crimea and into areas where they aren't allowed. Then, and only then, is there reason to expect shiat to go down in a bad way.
