DamnYankees: This is just the weirdest talking point. Can anyone give a single actual military option they want Obama to employ?
GDubDub: There is a treaty. It is LAW that we intervene. LAW.
The United States of America, the Russian Federation, and the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, reaffirm their commitment to Ukraine ... to respect the Independence and Sovereignty and the existing borders of Ukraine.
* Respect Ukrainian independence and sovereignty within its existing borders.* Refrain from the threat or use of force against Ukraine.* Refrain from using economic pressure on Ukraine in order to influence its politics.* Seek United Nations Security Council action if nuclear weapons are used against Ukraine.* Refrain from the use of nuclear arms against Ukraine.* Consult with one another if questions arise regarding these commitments.
way south: If you're afraid that they'll use anti ship weapons they've never tested successfully (much less threatened to use against you) to the point that you can't even pretend you're willing to use force, they'll just keep pushing.Our "no" doesn't have any meaning behind it.
