Wow... how come no one thought of this one before?

This has been used so much that I don't just read it anymore.  I hear Justin Timberlake sing it.

Any confirmed transfer of arms to civilians or non-uniformed soldiers from Russian stores should be treated as a violation of the United Nations charter.

I'll be honest...I'm a bit nostalgic for the good ol' Cold War era. This War on TerrorTM isn't as much fun.

Reused headline on a two day old story on a topic that is changing rapidly.

I hope the Governor of Alaska has been placed on high alert and ready to be vigilant, watching diligently for Putin's giant head.

I hope Putin knows that Crimea doesn't pay.

Really?  Is that just because it's Ukraine's nether dangly part?  Or is Crimea peopled by bath-soap addicted cannibals, trigger happy racists, and other intensely stupid people who don't fit into either prior category?

If so, then shiat, let Russia have it.  It will at least make for even more dramatic dashcam vids.

Yeah what a horrible international/security record:

1. Brought US troops home from the failed war in Iraq.
2. Killed OBL.
3. Avoided bloodshed in Syria AND got chemical weapons removed.  This brought Putin to the negotiation table, by the way.  I think this was all orchestrated in the background, though, and Kerry just brought a done deal to the public.
4. Brought Iran to the negotiating table and got them to give concessions on nuclear program.
5. Has decimated Al Quaeda and Taliban leadership.
6. Despite Benghazi derp, the toppling of Gadafi was in part to Obama's support of Nato efforts.
7. New START treaty, though Putin may be damaging that right now.

Other positives include closing black ops detention/torture facilities, international aid in Haiti and African countries, and increased military aid to Israel.

He is a veritable foreign policy genius compared to the previous administration.

Well, has he tried giving another speech? I mean, if Putin hears Obama talk about the 'Arc of History' he'll break down in tears and might possibly faint.

One speech seemed to be enough.  Russia's already denying they ever made any ultimatum.  Pretty awesome job by Obama, getting the mighty Russia to cower before him without even a show of force.

Because Putin is just like Hitler, and Russia's economy can totally handle sanctions and/or a World War, and WE REALLY WANT TO GO BACK TO THE COLD WAR, GUYS, PEOPLE AREN'T SCARED OF TEH SCARY MUSLIMS ANY MORE.

The US would do this for any country in the Americas.

Wikipedia: "President Barack Obama's Secretary of State John Kerry told the Organization of American States in November 2013 that the Monroe Doctrine was dead. Several commentators have noted that Kerry's call for a mutual partnership with the other countries in the Americas was more in keeping with Monroe's initial message than with the policies that had been enacted long after Monroe's death."

The Russian military intervention in Ukraine's autonomous republic of Crimea has brought relations between the United States and Russia to their lowest level in a quarter century.

Oh no.  A new low in Russia - US relations.  The lowest since last week.  Which was the lowest since the week before that.  Etc.

It's like the "Congress lowest approval ratings" articles.  No one cares anymore.

I tried to find it also with no luck.  Either Palin or Putin must have more power than we thought.
