So what should we have done instead?

Not signal to the world that the United States isn't going to lift a finger to defend any of our allies because it's too important to follow the lead of the idiot American hippies that helped put him in office.


Once again, offering no solution. Typical conservative. ;)

Tatterdemalian: soporific: What precicely should we do?

Oh, there's nothing we can do that The One would let us do. He's in power, not the neocon warmongers.

What we should have done? Supported the Iranian Green Revolution. Failing that, we should have refused to support the Muslim Brotherhood's Arab Spring.

Since we already did both those things, it's a bit too late to worry any more. We're already off the cliff, and the only thing left is for us neocons to say "I told you so" until we hit rock bottom.

/but keep on blaming the Republicans
//that's the only thing you can do
///even though it will make picking up the pieces more difficult, what with all your accusing the people who know which pieces really matter of causing the crash all along


I do blame the Republicans because they are the ones who completely screwed up our foriegn policy last decade. They are the ones who ran up huge bills and did a lot of damage to our military and military readiness. They are the ones who pissed away a lot of international goodwill, and they are the ones who thought going into Afghanistan with a minimal force was a good idea and going into Iraq at all was a good idea.

Now, has Obama been too naive about foriegn policy? It's possible. he's certainly been too naive about Republican opposition these past 6 years, letting them run the table while he expected everyoen to behave like adults. So I can see that he also expected world leaders to be reasonable and not insane, to his detriment. We'll have to wait and see how it pans out, and I'm taking everything the Republicans say with an entire saltshaker. Chances are they're going to be proven wrong in the next few weeks, much like reality proves them wrong time and time again. This doesn't mean everything Obama's done or doing is correct, but I'm still willing to give him a 'wait and see.'

This is why I think Hillary would be a strong President. She's got the chops to handle these kinds of situations, but she's also not insane and wanting to start another war like most everyone in the Republican party.

As smart as he is, I don't think Obama or his team really have the international game down. We involved ourselves in Libya, with far less reason than even for Iraq or especially Afghanistan, against someone who had already surrendered his major military programs to us, and now there's no reliability in surrendering to the U.S. as an agreement. He stood up for protecting Syrian civilians from chemical weapons, then when Syria (or somebody) apparently deployed them, we dicked around until Putin came in and settled the issue to some extent. Now we have Ukraine's quasi-revolution leading to Russia getting militarily involved, an agreement with Ukraine that goes bad for us whether we honor it or lawyer our way out of it, and China flexing its muscles and looking hungrily at Japanese territory for its own ends.

Applying force over Ukraine could lead to a major war. Not applying force could lead to wider conflicts, and a major war.

I'll just have to trust that President Obama makes his decisions for the right reasons, since any one of them could go south in a bad way. But we don't have the credibility to pull off denunciations, sanctions, or ultimatums now.

T-Servo: assjuice: Honestly, I don't see what the big deal is either.

Ukraine is weak = Obama is weak = Palin should be president


Also, if Obama HAD actually sent troops in, or did anything more than a strongly worded letter, he'd be Worse than Hitler because he'd be supporting the MUSLIM Tartars against the Russians. Y'know, like exactly what happened in Libya, Egypt and Syria.

I don't see why Republicans are so upset about Putin, either. I mean, he's a business-friendly, gay-hatin', liberal hatin' thug...Why SHOULDN'T they like him?

/Trick question: Republicans LOVE Putin, which is why they're making him out to be such a badass, instead of the corrupt, thuggish leader of a washed-up, crumbling ex-superpower that couldn't even get its shiat together enough to spruce up the Olympic host city.
//And if he honestly thinks he can take and hold Ukraine, let alone survive sanctions or a farking world war, you can add 'A complete dumbass' to the list of Putin's traits.

SunsetLament: gigantic pussy


You realize your retarded tough-guy posturing view of US foreign relations actually makes the USA weaker, don't you?

Other nations know they can count upon the USA's fear of looking cowardly or indecisive because of retards like you screaming for intervention.

People like you are the reason that the USA gets stuck in quagmires like Vietnam and Iraq, and the reason for anti-American Islamic terror which was birthed in the coup in Iran in the 50's.

Back then, the British manipulated the USA into intervening by playing up the communist threat.

And still here you are, being manipulated again.

Honestly, when people spoke out against a certain past administration's policies, they were terrorists. Now it's their civic duty not only to make the president seem like he doesn't have support, they want to make sure to undercut his position and make any strong action impossible vis-a-vis Germany and other wavering partners.

Mad_Radhu: germ78: So tell me how sanctions will work again?

Russia is a kleptocracy, not a dictatorship, so they are very vulnerable to being hit in the wallet. A return to the Cold War would be very bad for business within Russia, so at some point there will be pressure to de-escalate from within the business community because they are losing contracts and it is hurting their bottom line. Sanctions could help accelerate the process by brining the pain more quickly.


But that doesn't fit the Fox News Dialog. It's easier to say "Russia bad!! Obama can't do nuttin bout it!!!" But if he did, he's then a war-monger, assassin who doesn't get Congressional Approval. Or something. I can't keep up with these kids.
