Louisiana_Sitar_Club: Good concept but poor execution. To really make it work you need something with "Russian" in, like calling Russian dressing "freedom dressing".
Yeah. I'm that freakin' guy.

WTF Indeed: It's easy to sanction a government run by a handful of business owners and mob bosses.


But enough of the Republican Party. This isn't the politics tab and we're talking about Russia here.

birchman: To the people who think Obama is a weak leader and is handling this situation poorly, what do you think he should be doing? I'm genuinely curious. What could he do tomorrow that would make you come in here and say "Great job Obama"?


He needs to show strength and not weakness.  He needs to show leadership.  Putin has seen how Obama BOWS to our enemies and Putin has taken note.

Also, would it kill Obama to wrestle a wolverine with his shirt off?  I would also accept a badger, but a raccoon is completely unacceptable.

Who gives a fark about W? Or is that the standard you want President Obama to live up to? Ooohh hey there, you are a worthless piece of crap, but at least you arent a flaming runny disease laden smear of crap. Good for you. Way to set the bar so low.

fark wrestling the wolverine.  He needs to smash a Budweiser bottle over it's head and then pull out an AR-15 with a 100 round magazine and go to town on it.


Too weak.  Putin can sense weakness.  Obama needs a Browning M1919 with Biden standing next to him holding 5000 rounds in a cardboard box.

Once again, Obama plays patty-cake while Global Chessmaster Putin consolidates his ranks into a formidable front of oil oligarchs and gargantuan gas investments.  Obama's hippie hatred of freedom fracking has imperiled our allies and emboldened the enemy.  Libutardo libulardos are outmatched by my awesomely alliterative righteously right right-wing talking points!

Tatterdemalian: WTF Indeed: Muta: WTF Indeed: It's easy to sanction a government run by a handful of business owners and mob bosses.

It is probably one of the few time when you can target the sanctions to punish the people responsible while not hurting the general population.

Oh it will hurt the general population. Do you really think guys used to buying yachts the size of WWII aircraft carriers are going to say "Well, I've got less money now that I can't do business in the US and EU, so I'll just take less from myself to ensure the population isn't effected."? Hell now, they are going to the gouge the fark out of the general population.

Yes, but nobody's going to care about that until a Republican is president.

/Clinton imposed sanctions on Saddam Hussein
//nobody screamed about sanctions starving Iraqi babies until Dubya was elected
///isn't it great how sanctions can be used as propaganda weapons against both foreign and domestic "enemies?"


You might try some "freedom roulette."
